Kevin Nash Shows Concern For AEW Five Years Into Their Run

Last night, CM Punk let the world know that he is officially a WWE Raw Superstar. Moments after signing his contract, Seth “Freaking” Rollins’ music hit, and the two men proceeded to have a verbal sparring session that reminded many of Punk’s exchanges with “Hangman” Adam Page in AEW. Playing off Punk’s real-life issues with his former employer has grabbed fans’ attention and put a spotlight on what could have been in AEW had The Elite and The Second City Savior been able to work together.

On the latest episode of his Kliq This podcast, Kevin Nash gave his thoughts on the current state of the WWE and AEW products.

“I saw a thing where they were talking to Jericho, and Jericho was the first major star to sign with AEW,” he said. “And they asked him if he felt that they would, you know, where they would be. And he actually said that they have far succeeded where it’d be at this point, which, you know, five, I think, they’re just shy of five years. And you know, when things were a little bit disorganized over at the other camp at WWE for a minute, there was a little bit of some things going back and forth.”

Nash’s co-host tried to clarify what he meant with his comments and if he was specifically pointing to the drama that Vince McMahon brought with him when he returned to the company earlier this year.

“Not so much, it’s just everything,” he asserted. “Vince was kind of in and out of the sale and in and out of creative. They’re back on bedrock again. The shows are really solid. But you look at it for five years, and there were some points where they made some runs where AEW was strong. I think that by losing Jade and losing Phil that is, that’s not good.”
