WWE legend Kevin Nash was interviewed recently by Chad Dukes of 106.7 the Fan DC/CBS Radio. Here are some highlights of what he said about:

Scott Hall’s recovery: “One thing Dallas [Page] gives that a lot of people just don’t have is Dallas has always been the cup half full guy. He’s a real positive human being. I just think that’s what Scott needed more than anything, to be around somebody who’s a positive influence, and to get him pointed in the right direction. Dallas was going to try and get him on the YRG, but once he got down there his hip was so bad they had to get a hip replacement and that’s really held Scott up. He got to a position where he was living clean, there were people around him 24/7 that cared about him, and it just made it easier, that transition to determine on a daily basis not to use.

Bob’s Random Rumblings – Reliving a feud: Sid Vicious vs. Goldberg in WCW ’99

Random Rumblings

By the fall of 1999 World Championship Wrestling was struggling along looking for anything to spark interest in their product. In the summer, Sid Vicious made his return to the company after being gone for six years after a incident with Arn Anderson. Sid would align himself with Randy Savage, but that wouldn’t last too long as Savage would be gone from WCW, again, by July.

As most of you know Goldberg had a lengthy undefeated streak from 1997 to 1998 in WCW. After a couple of months in WCW, Sid became obsessed with breaking Goldberg’s streak. Most of Sid’s “victories” were when he would get involved in a match and attack the contestants before pinning them. He would have Charles Robinson hold up a sign with the amount of victories he had. During this streak, Sid won the WCW United States Championship from Chris Benoit at Fall Brawl on September 12th.

Shortly afterward, Sid’s feud with Goldberg began. Sid was obsessed with breaking Goldberg’s streak while Goldberg was focused on regaining the WCW United States Championship, which he held in 1998. During the September 23rd edition of Thunder it was revealed that Sid got a restraining order against Goldberg saying that he can’t touch him prior to Halloween Havoc.
