– Kevin Nash recently appeared on Vince Russo’s podcast (transcript viawrestlinginc.com), and discussed what was said to Vince McMahon prior to the MSG curtain call. Here is what Nash had to say…
We’re originally supposed to go out with Vince to Smith & Wolinsky’s and have steak and wine – that is the plan,” Nash said. “So Shawn walks in and says to Vince, ‘I want to do this with my boys tonight’. Vince, as Vince always does, says ‘Shawn how important is this – is it that important?’ Shawn tells Vince, ‘yes’, and Vince says, ‘then just do it’. So it was without malice that we did it.
By the time we got through the curtain I turned to say something to Vince and Vince turned his back to me. I remember looking at Shawn and saying, ‘Well it looks like Smith & Wolinsky’s is out. This ain’t gonna happen’. From there it took on a life of its own.
We did s–t because we loved each other and had each other’s back, I hate to use the word organic, but it was organic. Everything we did was organic–it wasn’t pre-conceived. That wasn’t a work that night. It was four guys who loved each other saying goodbye.”
