Kevin Nash on son Tristen Nash’s death 

The WWE legend's 26-year-old son, Tristen tragically died after having a seizure followed by a cardiac arrest. Kevin Nash has been pretty vocal about how difficult this death has been for him. On Monday, on his podcast, Nash’s comments insinuated thoughts of self-harm and suicide. He shared, "Time flies when you got a gun in your mouth. I mean, time flies when you're having fun," to which Nash's co-host, Sean Oliver replied, "Don't play like that. You have guns, so you can't say those things." The conversation was followed by Nash saying "I can do whatever the f--- I want to do. Long as I leave a note."

Kevin added, "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, there'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?'"

 

Kevin Nash and Tristen Nash quit alcohol before his passing

Nash revealed, he and his son Tristen had decided to quit alcohol days before his passing. He shared, "Alcohol is the nastiest . . . it's a nasty drug. Anybody out there, if you haven't drank, you've probably done yourself an incredible service. If you do drink, and you're having problems and know it's affecting your life, and you know it's affecting your health, you can't see the damage it's doing."

Later, Oliver explained, "It was Kev’s choice to go through this in real-time [the podcast comments] with his audience, and extreme emotions are bound to surface with such a situation [coping with Tristen’s passing]."

Tristen Nash tragically died on Scott Hall's 64th birth anniversary. Scott Hall and Kevin Nash had been wrestling partners for years. Tristen was the only child of Kevin Nash and Tamara Nash which left a gaping hole in their lives.
