Back in the strange, grungy, and gloomy decade known as the 1990s, a character named Diesel would serve as the longest reigning WWE Champion of said tortured decade. While many debate the merit of this title run, given how the man playing the role of Diesel (Kevin Nash) was a major wrestling politician and member of the infamous Kliq, there is no denying the impact Nash would have on the industry.
Vince McMahon, being a ruthless opportunist, would see stars with his champion when he proposed a crossover charity match with the biggest boxer in the world, Mike Tyson. Kevin Nash recently discussed this proposal in Justin Barrasso's Week in Wrestling column. Of the Tyson match, Nash would state the following:
"They brought me up to WWE Headquarters, which was called Titan Tower at the time, and Vince went into this elaborate idea of me fighting Mike Tyson in Central Park. I asked him, ‘How much am I going to get paid?’ Vince said it was for charity, and I said, ‘F—. I ain’t fighting Mike Tyson and getting knocked the f— out for charity."
Kevin Nash has never shied away from his love of The Almighty Dollar. Nash left WWE in the first place to chase more green and enjoy a leisurely schedule in WCW. So, it should come as no surprise that Nash refused to participate in a charity match. Well, at least Nash is honest about his overwhelming greed.
