I fell down a very familiar rabbit hole. I have been watching shoot interviews. For those who don’t know, a shoot interview is where a professional wrestler sits down and strips away any semblance of kayfabe to answer a series of questions. YouTube is absolutely packed with various wrestlers telling fantastic stories.
Tonight, I’ve mostly been watching Kevin Nash. The man is very well-spoken, and gives exactly zero fucks, so all of his interviews are interesting to watch. In the last hour or two, I’ve listened to him tell stories about HBK, Scott Hall, The Kliq going on strike, and plenty more. However, not one of them compares to something he shared about The Nature Boy himself.
NOTE: It’s not confirmed to be a true story, but it’s not unbelievable in the slightest (especially if you know the story behind, ‘The Plane Ride From Hell”).
I’m going to transcribe the relevant bits, but you really should give the interview a watch. The way Nash tells the story is hilarious.
INTERVIEWER: (in reference to Ric Flair) A lot has been said about his legendary after hours antics. Can you add to the voluminous set of stories?
KEVIN NASH: My favorite thing on earth is, um, I’ve traveled the Caribbean pretty extensively. Uh, I have some little places down there and stuff, and…you can not go to a Caribbean island that Ric Flair has wrestled in, and not have somebody tell you a story.
***Takes on an accent to imitate the story being told to him***
And then at that point right there, Ric Flair was naked and in the pool!
***Goes back to his normal speaking voice***
You know, there’s always just this incredible…I heard one story where Ric Flair, like, walked out with, like, the penny loafers on, with a fuckin’-he walked into, uh, like, the lobby type thing, and there was some event going on and there was balloons, and he fuckin’ just snagged some balloons, went upstairs. Came down. Put the robe on, opened the robe, and he had the balloons underneath the robe, onto his dick. And just did the little fuckin’ shuffle, and then just shuffled right back in the elevator and went up. Whether it’s true or not, I don’t know, but fuckin’, that’s…that’s good shit.
Yes it is, Kevin Nash, yes it is…
