While speaking on Kliq THIS podcast, Nash expressed how irate he feels with WWE moving forward with Rhodes Lesnar’s feud. He first began by scrutinizing the 05/22 edition of Monday Night Raw. During the weekly episode, ‘The Beast’ brutally ambushed Rhodes and sort of broke his arm.

He said, “They continue to expose Cody in these situations where I’m sorry, man, he was a good high school wrestler. It’s not f*cking, [he’s] not an NCAA Champion, and [he’s] not a UFC Champion.” He emphasized the fact that given Lesnar’s history in combat sports, he could have easily annihilated ‘The American Nightmare’ that day.

As per Nash, this segment jeopardized Rhodes’ babyface character as he looked quite vulnerable in front of his rival. Not only this, but he also criticized Lesnar vs Rhodes match at WWE Night of Champions.

Nash explains his satisfaction with the storyline

‘Big Daddy Cool’ is not a big fan of the ending of Lesnar vs Rhodes at WWE Night of Champions last Saturday. “Who the f**k is medically clearing these guys? Well. it’s the worst…for the angle, [I don’t think anybody even thinks about that] Exactly, that’s what’s wrong with it,” he added.

He believes that the WWE creative team is not paying attention to minute details. Plus, they are adding drastically unrealistic turn of events to the storyline that may not be pleasing to the viewers. Though WWE matches are primarily based on kayfabe, fans still want a touch of realism in them.

Nash has been friends with Triple H since the 1990s. Though both of them were bitter on-screen rivals, they were great friends in real life. HHH is the Creative Head of WWE. Therefore, his longtime friend pointing out a potentially major flaw in the Lesnar-Rhodes rivalry could aid him and his creative team in polishing the storyline.
