Thursday Headlines: Nash Challenges WarriorBy Thomas and Aaron Briggs[caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="480" caption="This is seriously Nash's Twitter image."][/caption]Just when I thought it was going to be a slow news day...<!--more-->The Ultimate Warrior took a shot at Kevin Nash on Twitter yesterday when a fan asked him: “Why not dye the hair... pull a Kevin Nash return?” The Warrior being the Warrior, he quickly stoked a fire that wasn’t there before. He replied:
I’m not a dickhead who thrives on stealing the limelight from young guys.Wow. You’ve gotta admire the guy for never holding back. Kind of reminds me of Bret Hart’s tweet to Hulk Hogan almost a year ago. Kevin Nash, who has had issues of his own on twitter before, quickly responded with a series of five tweets (because it’s Twitter, and there’s a character limit dammit!). Here they are, in their original, unedited form (you’re welcome internet):
Never realized I had a problem with Jim (Warrior). Seemed to get along fine in Scottsdale. Come on my clown, turn that frown upside down.
@UltimateWarrior A true warrior never turns down a challenge. Put up a 100K. I’ll do the same. 3 rounds. mma rules. winner take all.
I’m talking shoot, not sports entertainment. Jim Hellwig needs to put up or shut the f**k up. Day before Mania in Miami area.
Warrior will have to pass all hiv and hep a b and c tests. I’ll do the same.
I’m tired of this guy talking shit about the boys & me. When they stop it or you tap, i’ll quit, or you can apologize like the c*nt you are.Just a quick observation: both Warrior and Nash are idiots. They both have a sense of importance and entitlement in wrestling that they REALLY don’t deserve. Warrior was a terrible worker with a prima donna attitude who held the WWE up for money. Kevin Nash is a very average worker who has mastered the art of “knowing the right people” and politicking in his career. He views himself as a legend in the industry because of his time with the NWO, but in all reality, fans really don’t care about the guy.But I’d be lying if I said I didn’t want to see these two bozos beat the tar out of each other in a cage. Break a nose here, snap a limb there, sure, I'd pay money for that. In the end though, this will never happen. Nash knows $100k is just ridiculous enough for the Ultimate Warrior to not accept, and who are these guys kidding? They're both glorified body-builders, a fight between the two wouldn't come close to approaching what we've come to expect out of an MMA fight.That's not me supporting a stereotype about professional wrestlers, I know there are plenty of guys who could pursue an MMA career. How could you see what Brock Lesnar has accomplished and deny the toughness of WWE superstars? I'm specifically talking about these two men. Ultimate Warrior and Kevin Nash, stop puffing out your chests and acting like you're anything more than nostalgia acts. Nobody is buying it, you're both unlikable, and neither of you is as relevant as you believe you are. (Twitter)
