:lolIt was a legit heart problem. They told him he had to job to Giant and his heart almost gave out.
This. According to everything I've read, Nash had been saying for weeks leading up to Starrcade that he wasn't going to job to The Giant. So I find it way too convenient that he happened to have a heart attack scare the night before the show. And then, lo and behold, Nash ended up going over Giant at the next PPV.It was probably a legit thing Nash was worried about at that moment in time but there's a strong possibility he used to get out of this match. I wouldn't take Bischoff's description like gospel considering Nash was Bischoff's boy and Bischoff let a lot of shit slip through back then.
Why did a lot of the top WCW guys hold a lot of the guys down? Insecurity and they didn't want to lose the top spot. Giant had main event talent back then... Charismatic, GREAT in the ring (seriously, look up some of his matches from WCW), and was over. He also fit WCW's prototype bill for more old school characters. He wasn't part of the backstage gang though. That's all that was needed for Nash.What problem would Kevin Nash have with jobbing to Giant? Not saying I don't believe you guys here but Giant was pretty over in late 97 and Giant is bigger then Nash.
And we all know how pro big man Kevin Nash is. Seems like Nash would of been down for it.
Yup. Nash was in his thirties and for alot of people with heart disease thats when heart attacks can happen. If it happened to anyone here they would call into work aswell.Well, doesn't heart problems run in his family? And the reason Nash/Punk never happened was because of Nash being on heart medication? Seems legit to me.
Oh, I forgot, this is Kevin Nash we're talking about. And in his case, we're not supposed to believe anything he says, despite nobody else saying anything to contradict it. I got it.
Starrcade 97 is supposed to be WCW's greatest event. But:
- they had 2 matches on the advertised card change during the show
- Sting wasnt even introduced by Micheal Buffer for the main event.
-Bobby Hennan (WCW's core commentary group for 1997) wasnt even on commentary.
I watched it last night and noticed all this stuff
imagine if WWE switched up the card for wrestlemania during the show or if justin roberts didnt introduce John Cena at WM 29
