Kevin Nash Lost his Best Friend this year as well
It has been a hard year for Kevin Hash, as he also lost his best friend, pro wrestler Scott Hall in March. Hall was admitted to the hospital after falling and injuring his hip. Following a hip replacement surgery, a blood clot caused three attacks, and the wrestler was taken off life-support in mid-March.
Talking about how he got to know about his friend’s death, Kevin said on his podcast in July, “I got a call on Sunday saying Scott had three heart attacks and it didn’t look good. I tried to get a flight to Atlanta but couldn’t, so I went back to Daytona Beach and then couldn’t get a flight out of Daytona Beach.”
“At that point, they said they were going to pull the plug and the doctor said that it would be maybe 10 minutes that Scott would be alive. So before they pulled the plug, all the Kliq guys got on speakerphone and we all talked to him. We all cried was basically all we did. Seven hours later, Scott was still alive (but then died),” he added.
Our heartfelt condolences to Kevin and Tamara Nash. May Tristen’s soul rest in peace!
