In a remarkable turn of events, veterans of pro wrestling and entrepreneurs of cannabis brands, Kevin Nash and Rob Van Dam, find common ground despite rarely crossing paths in their illustrious careers. Their sporadic meetings transpired twice in 2002-2003 with WWE and then again in 2010 with TNA. Yet, these fleeting moments were sufficient for Nash – a man infamously known for his often challenging team dynamics – to appreciate and openly praise RVD, a previous ECW, WWE, and TNA World Heavyweight Champion.
This unlikely alliance surfaced during an episode of ‘Kliq This’, where Nash, accompanied by co-host Sean Oliver, shared their experiences from a recent show with RVD. During the conversation, the topic of utilizing the recreational drug kratom was also discussed. Nash echoed Oliver’s words of admiration for RVD, crediting the wrestling icon for his calming persona. Nash declared, “I’ve always liked him. I don’t know anyone who’s been in my presence who’s had a bad thing to say about Rob.”
The public sentiment seems to echo Nash’s view after RVD staged a triumphant return to the wrestling landscape thanks to a few appearances on AEW last month. Back in action, RVD lept in to support ex-ECW adversary Jerry Lynn, leading to a challenge against Jack Perry for the FTW Championship on the August 9 AEW Dynamite. Despite the final outcome, RVD’s performative prowess was universally lauded by fans, critics, and AEW personnel. Ever the crowd-pleaser, RVD has hinted at another possible comeback at an appropriate time in the future.
