Wrestling fans are concerned about legend Kevin Nash after he made some troubling comments during a podcast released today.
On the Kliq THIS podcast, Nash made an off the cuff comment that caught co-host Sean Oliver off guard.
“Today is week 12 that I lost my boy. Time flies when you got a gun in your mouth — I mean, time flies when you’re having fun,” said Nash.
A concerned Oliver pleaded with Nash.
“Don’t play like that. You have guns so you can’t say those things,” he said.
Nash replied curtly: “I can do whatever the f–k I want to do as long as I leave a note.”
Nash later explained, detailed his frame of mind recently.
“Every morning when I wake up the first thing that happens is I come to the realization that instead of there being three human beings in my home, here’s now two. And the third person isn’t on vacation or staying with friends or is out late. He is never coming back. And then I sit up in the bed and I have absolutely nothing I have to do, and it’s like,..So, why am I getting out of bed?” he said.
In reaction to the news, fans sent Nash encouraging messages.
Hey Big Kev, please accept my condolences. I can't imagine what you are going through. Please stay strong we need you. You are a inspiration for millions of kids and older fans. Stay strong for all of us.

I pray that Kevin gets the help that he needs. Depression is serious. He sounded serious and the joke was not funny at all. Mental health is very important. 🙏🏾💜

I have no words to offer in regards to ever knowing what to do in big Kevs situation, but if he sees this, or anyone dealing with the same thing sees this, there are people out there who love you, and the pain your feeling, while unimaginable, can be helped by reaching out.

Nash’s son Tristen, 26, passed away last October. Medical officials believe Tristen died of seizures suffered by quitting alcohol cold turkey.
