Kevin Nash Says WWE Has Taken The Market, Gives Credit To Triple H

WWE Hall of Famer Kevin Nash recently spoke with Scott Fishman of The Miami Herald to promote Friday's Legends of Wrestling Night at the Miami Marlins vs. San Diego Padres game. The full interview is at this link. Below are some highlights:

Benefits of the WWE Network:

"With the network now I go to signings and there are as many eight-year-old kids, as well as 35-year-olds because the network plays all the old stuff. To them, it's basically this live stream. They meet you and you maybe don't look like you do on the network, but they understand who you are and what you do. So the network is really nice to have."

Now being a different time for WWE in the business:

"They have built a basic farm system. There isn't anybody in the realm in competing with them. They have taken the market. It now goes Raw, SmackDown and NXT. There are now three brands. There are a lot of guys I watch today. I've been a fan of [Dolph] Ziggler since day one. I saw the big 6-foot-8 kid down at NXT. [Big Cass], I think really has a chance. He is a big guy and athletic. I think he has a chance to make it."

Giving credit to Triple H:

"I think a lot of the credit has to go to Paul Levesque [Triple H]. He really understands the business. One of the most poignant things he ever said to me was, 'It's not only the fact we have to replace the guys in the ring, but we have to teach the guys with the handhelds and steady cams. I've got guys who have been carrying cameras for 30 years now. They aren't going to be doing this forever.' What they've done with NXT and Full Sail [University] is basically also focus on the production. People don't realize how important the cameras are. This is a hands-on experience and proving ground, A to Z, from people in the truck and all the way up. It's about pushing this product and having it continually grow."
