WWE legend Kevin Nash on Monday addressed some of the dark comments he made on last week’s episode of the podcast, saying he would “never” hurt himself.
Florida police checked on Nash last week after he mentioned that “time flies when you have a gun in your mouth.” On Monday, Nash said on the “Kliq This” podcast that the disturbing comments were part of a bit he did with the late Scot Hall.
“Emily Sherman was [former WCW executive] Brad Siegel’s niece, but she worked for us. I think she worked international or whatever when we were at WCW,” Nash said. “She and Scott started dating. She would ride with us a lot on the road when we went from city to city, especially from Nitro to Thunder. It was always an ongoing thing where they’d say, ‘Well, what do you guys think about that?’

“Scott and I would say, ‘Yeah, as soon as we’re done putting a gun in our mouths.’ They’d say, ‘Oh, that’s not funny,’ and Scott would say, ‘It is, because we’re going to leave a note. A couple of people called her and said, ‘Hey, your boy Nash, I think he’s in trouble.’ She looks at him and explodes. As if she’s looking at it and exploding, she’s like, ‘Oh, they don’t know parody. They don’t know, it’s the note. You know, it’s like, that’s what makes it fun.”
Nash admitted that he made “some off-color comments” last week.
“…But for anyone, I would never do anything to hurt myself,” he said. “I guess people don’t realize I have a wife who’s been with me for 35 fucking years. She’s never been about me. I drive a fucking 2005 Mustang. I know it sounds like that parody.” from ‘Saturday Night Live’ where, ‘I drive a Dodge Stratus,’ but I drive a 2005 Mustang. I don’t give a fuck. It has never been about me. It’s about the people I care for and that’s your job. Your job is to provide and protect. That’s your job”.
The 26-year-old son of WWE Hall of Famer Tristen has died after suffering a seizure and going into cardiac arrest in October. Nash has been open about how difficult it has been for him to cope with the tragic loss. On Monday, Nash appeared to hint that he recently had suicidal thoughts.
“Time flies when you have a gun in your mouth. I mean, time flies when you’re having fun,” Nash said on his “Kliq This” podcast.

Nash’s co-host, Sean Oliver, quickly tried to take Nash off the topic.
“Don’t play like that. You have weapons, so you can’t say those things,” Oliver said.
Nash responded, “I can do whatever I want to do. As long as I leave a note.”
“Every morning when I wake up, the first thing that happens is that instead of there being three human beings in my house, there are now two,” Nash continued. “And the third person isn’t on vacation or staying with friends or out late. He’s never coming back. And then I sit in bed and I have absolutely nothing to do, and I’m like, ‘So why am I getting up from bed?'”
The father-son duo gave up alcohol “cold turkey” days before Tristen’s death, Nash revealed.
“Alcohol is the nastiest thing…it’s a nasty drug,” Nash said a week after his son’s death. “Anyone, if you haven’t been drinking, you’ve probably done yourself an incredible service. If you drink, and you’re having problems and you know it’s affecting your life, and you know it’s affecting your health, you can’t see the harm you’re doing.”
Tristen died on what would have been Hall’s 64th birthday. Hall and Nash were wrestling partners for years. Tristen was the only child of Kevin and Tamara Nash.
