Kevin Nash: Pray for Ricky Morton
A decade of bad blood will literally spill-over into the ring Saturday as “Big Sexy” Kevin Nash takes out his frustrations on resentful Ricky Morton, one half of The Rock-n-Roll Express, in the featured match of the “AWE Wrestling: Night Of The Legends” Pay-Per-View event, live from Augusta Expo in Fishersville, Va.
Nash, a former WWE and WCW World Heavyweight Champion, and his mystery tag-team partner will throw-down with the former three-time NWA Tag Team Champions, Morton and Robert Gibson (The Rock-n-Roll Express), to finally settle the score once and for all between Nash and Morton in front of a live national television/Internet audience and a packed live house in Virginia.
“I don’t know what his gripe is,” Nash said, “but he’s been on a tirade against me since the social networking, You Tube boom. He hates me. Nobody else is lumped in, only Kevin Nash, I didn’t really do anything. He is just a bitter old-timer guy who wasn’t as good a businessman as I am. He brings-up this situation over the course of time. What’s his problem? Hate is a strong word. I dislike but don’t hate a lot of people. It’s almost a sign of ignorance. You can dislike me, or disapprove of what I do….but hate?”
Nash’s tag-team partner will not be announced until fight night. Despite all of the speculation concerning who it is, Kevin doesn’t believe it will really matter, once he gets Morton in the ring. “Once I get my hands on Morton,” Nash remarked, “it won’t matter who my partner is. All it’s really going to be is a matter of how long the cat will play with the mouse before it’s enough. It’s like in the movie, Seven, when Brad Pitt unloads a clip into Kevin Spacey’s head. I would have used a potato peeler and rubbing alcohol.”
Morton resents Nash cashing-in after Ricky, who claims he paved the way for Kevin’s financial success, was let loose by the WCW before making megabucks from wrestling, endorsement deals and major public appearances like Nash and some other wrestlers. “He’s been doing this for 10 years, so three minutes isn’t going to be enough to squelch this on my part,” Nash concluded. “I want him to realize what he’s been saying. Maybe, I’ll teach an old man something new late in his life.”
The Awesome Wrestling Entertainment superstar show will be available for live viewing at 9 PM/ET – 6 PM/PT on both cable and satellite pay-per-view via iN Demand, DIRECTV, AT & T and Verizon in the United States, as well as Bell TV in Canada, for a suggested retail price of only $24.95. The broadcast will also be available live on an Internet pay-per-view basis at www.AWEonPPV.com and www.GFL.TV.
As if Nash versus Morton doesn’t offer enough animosity, legendary warrior Terry Funk goes mano-y-mano with his protégé, former ECW superstar Tommy Dreamer, to determine who the true King of Hardcore wrestling is in 2011. Dreamer, a 14-time WWF/WWE Hardcore Champion and two-time ECW world title-holder, plans to send the ageless Hall of Fame wrestler Funk, a two-time ECW and NWA heavyweight champion, into a retirement home for wrestlers.
And patriotic wrestling icon “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan, waving the American flag and wielding his trademark 2 X 4, goes at hated Arab-American oil magnate, Mohammad Akbar, with a special vengeance.
After nine long years on the sidelines, Perry Saturn will make the most significant comeback in wrestling history, jumping right back into the fire against deadly enforcer CW Anderson.
WWE and WCW title-holder Fit Finlay battles 21-year-old rising-star and the AWE Heavyweight prospect, “Loose Cannon” Alex Silva, who will have “Nature Boy” Buddy Landel in his corner, and Sonjay Dutt meets Jamin Olivencia.
