Here are some of the highlights of Kevin’s interview, provided by The Mayhem’s official correspondent, Paterson From New Jersey:
With TNA’s return to Pay-Per-View this Sunday night, The Main Event Mafia’s Kevin Nash kicked off his “Big Sexy World Tour” search on “Your Home Of Wrestling Radio,” Monday Night Mayhem. Kevin thanked Mosh, Blade, & Bill for his return to the program, as he was beginning the early stages of the daunting task in selecting a female valet that will accompany him to the ring at TNA’s Final Resolution PPV on December 20th. Mosh began things by asking how this idea came out. “I just wanna hang out with a hot broad…After all this time, I’ve never really had a valet, and I just had my 50th birthday so as a present to me, with my birthday & Christmas all wrapped into one. I think it will be nice just to give someone the chance to fulfill a dream…fulfill my dream. I think it’ll be a good time.” He had the chance to look at some of the applicants so far, and he is impressed so far with some of them to say the least. “The thing is a lot of women think that I’m looking for a ’10’ in a bikini that’s 20 years old. My thing that is sexy to me is all about attitude.”

With all the talk on Kevin’s search for his new valet, Bill Brown asked about the status of The MEM’s Jenna Moresca & where that leaves her within the group, as she been escorting him down to the ring & managing him over the past few months. “Kurt brought her in. They just used my sexual powers to take her money…that was my job. Kurt sicked me on her. Jenna’s a sweetheart though…She’s a nice girl.”
Nash will squaring off against Mick Foley this Sunday night at TNA’s Hard Justice PPV for a chance to regain the TNA Legends Championship, a belt that Nash lost to Foley in a tag team match a few short weeks ago on iMPACT. Kevin is looking forward to this Sunday evening & how a victory could continue the winning streak for The Main Event Mafia. “I don’t think anybody’s gonna expect me & Mick to give any kind of an X-Division match. I guarantee you that somebody’s bleeding. I mean there’s no doubt about it. I’ve been looking forward to this. I worked only one time in my entire career against Mick Foley, and it was in WCW.” He went onto to say that people have been saying that his career is rejuvenated and he tells why: “When you sit in a locker room with a guy like Kurt Angle every night that’s as beat up as you are, goes 150%, never complains, that sets the bar night in & night out the way that he does, he’s our team captain, and he motivates me. I see the passion in him, and I said ‘I remember when I was driven like that,’ and I’m like why am I not anymore. I give the credit to Kurt.” Kevin added that the acquisition of Kurt Angle was indeed “the biggest thing in TNA.”
Blade shifted gears slightly to that of The Main Event Mafia, and how many TNA fans are very appreciative of the faction, simply because it is not as “watered down” as the nWo was back in World Championship Wrestling (towards the latter days of the group). “One of the perquisites was you had to be World Champion. If you weren’t a World Champion, you couldn’t be in The Mafia. So that kinda made it an exclusive group on its own. All of sudden, you don’t have Horace, because he’s Hogan’s kid, brother, uncle…whatever he was. For a while there in the NWO, it was ‘how we gonna get him over?’ Well hell, let’s put a ‘black & white’ T-Shirt on him.”
With the recent news of WWE Hall Of Famer, Hulk Hogan, undergoing laser surgery on his back in an attempt to carry on his wrestling career & with “The Heartbreak Kid” Shawn Michaels coming back in for SummerSlam, the supporters of the younger talent of today’s generation, as well as the haters/”armchair quarterbacks” from the superstars of the late ’80’s & ’90’s believe that “The Immortal One” & “The Showstopper” should call in quits. Based on Nash’s past experiences in working with Hulk & Shawn, and after just turning 50 himself, was asked how much longer he believes he has left. “As much as people want us to quit, and say that we’ve had enough, & why don’t you walk away, until you’ve walked on that stage, actually when you stand behind that curtain & that first note of your music plays, and the crowd pops, there’s not a drug on the planet that’s as strong as that….You can’t find that anywhere else.” He added that it’s hard to give up the power they as wrestlers have in controlling audiences & influencing their emotions. “For me, I like money. People ask me when I’m gonna stop, and I say this, if you stood in front of an ATM machine, and it was spiting out 20 dollar bills, when would you walk away? I think you would walk away when it stops spiting out 20 dollar bills.”
What does Nash feels lies in store for the futures of HBK “The thing about Shawn is that I’ve always compared him to Michael Jordan. I’ve never seen a guy take time off, come back, & put a superkick a 16th of a inch from a guy’s chin with tight Levi’s on. It’s amazing…He never loses his timing, but the thing with Shawn (like most guys when they get older), he got smarter. His matches are smarter, his psychology is smarter, his selling is so much more believable. Shawn has the ability to turn gears. When Shawn Michaels starts making that comeback & starts throwing punches, I don’t care what you say about the guy, that guy can fight you.” And why he thinks there is still a market for a Hogan in-ring return: “I watched Hogan steal ‘Mania with The Rock. I watched him steal Mania with Vince. It’s not always high spots. I learned so much from Hulk about nuisances of the over sell like someone is behind you, the overly slow turn when you are heel. There were so many things that I learned from him on a business standpoint as well. Hulk is Hulk. If Hulk wants to come back, people will pay to see Hulk drop his leg.”
One of the most-decorated champions & one of the most-controversial figures in the history of the business also gives The Mayhem the lowdown on his TNA future, what he sees his life after wrestling, his thoughts on the forthcoming release of “The Rise And Fall Of WCW” DVD, why he thinks everyone blames him for the downfall of the company, and once and for all, a shoot to those critics who still believe that it was his fault alone that World Championship Wrestling went under. Kevin holds nothing back in his Mayhem return, a near 45-minute interview, available exclusively as part of “The Summer Of Mayhem 2009” & “Your Home Of Wrestling Radio.”
