Former WWF Superstar set to make first public appearance since 2001

Former WWF/E Superstar Nailz (real name Kevin Wacholz) is scheduled to make his first public appearance since 2001. He is booked as the lead guest at Wrestlecon’s Destination Convention, taking place at Huntington Place in Detroit, Michigan over WWE SummerSlam Weekend – August 4 and 5.

Wacholz will be taking part in signings and photo opportunities.  To learn more and purchasing tickets, you can visit Wrestlecon’s website.

Wacholz was released from his WWF contract in December 1992, after he attacked Vince McMahon in his office over a financial dispute. The incident took place at a December 14 house show in Green Bay, WI.  The incident led to a number of lawsuits between Wacholz and the WWF. Wacholz alleged McMahon had given him steroids on numerous occasions; McMahon denied the claim. Wacholz then filed a wrongful termination lawsuit in which he claimed McMahon sexually assaulted him. The WWF filed a counterclaim against Wacholz. However, both suits were later dropped. In 1994, Wacholz testified against McMahon in the steriod trial, claiming McMahon told him he had to take steroids.

After getting fired from the WWF, Wacholz appeared at the 1993 WCW Slamboree PPV as “The Prisoner”, losing to Sting. He would go on to make several additional appearances for WCW from 1997 to 1998.

Wacholz’s final match was a loss to Matt Burns by disqualification at an independent event on August 25, 2001 in Orrock, Minnesota. After that match, he officially retired from pro wrestling.

Wrestling Figure Database has also announced on Twitter, a new Nailz Bendie action-figure is coming soon.

According to PWInsider, an exclusive three-hour sit-down shoot interview will be released on the website very soon with Wacholz. He will discuss his entire career from the AWA to the WWF and beyond.
