WWE Hall of Famer Kevin Nash could find himself in trouble after a photo of a nude woman surfaced on his Twitter page on Saturday evening, according to Wrestling News.
As of this writing, a picture of a brown-haired woman posing naked on a bed is still up on Nash’s profile. It has received over 400 retweets and over 530 favorites.
Although it is too early to know why Nash would tweet that photo, the identity of the woman, or any other extenuating circumstances, recent history with WWE and their employees posting questionable content on social media could not bode well for Nash.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, now-former WWE NXT diva Zahra Schreiber was released from her contract after pro-Nazi photos she posted several years ago on Instagram resurfaced. The real-life girlfriend of WWE World Heavyweight and United States champion Seth Rollins, Schreiber appeared to be on the fast track to the main roster.
After being fired, Schreiber took to Instagram to apologize for her tweets but maintain that she is not an anti-Semite (via Ringside News). Below is an excerpt from her apology.
“Now, I want to take the time to apologize to everyone who was offended by my posts. I am so sorry. I would like to make it very clear I am in no way, shape or form an anti-Semite, nor do I condone anti-Semitism. If one were to have looked deeper into my post, one would have noticed that also in the photo was Marlene Dietrich. Marlene was a Polish actress who opposed Nazism and fought for the oppressed during WWII. To me the photos and relics were nothing more than a story. I now see it was insensitive of me and in poor taste, which is why I had attempted to delete them long ago.”
Not even a week after the Schreiber controversy, another WWE NXT diva, Jasmine, whose real name is Nhooph Al-Areebi, found herself in hot water. Three-year-old racist tweets surfaced, putting the 20-year-old’s dream job in jeopardy. But recent news has indicated she will not lose her job.
The most public case of a WWE superstar finding themselves in trouble is Nash’s former nWo partner Hulk Hogan. After audio of Hogan going on racist tangents was leaked, the WWE Hall of Famer got fired and had all mention of him removed from the company.
While Nash’s situation is neither racist nor pro-Nazi, WWE will not be happy to have one of their employees posting nudity on social media. The 56-year-old is under a WWE legends contract, and the company has shown that they do not want any negative publicity. In fact, WWE suspended Nash in late December last year after he was arrested after engaging in a physical altercation with his son — but was reinstated when all charges were dropped (via PWInsider).
It remains to be seen whether or not Nash posted that photo himself or had his Twitter hacked. But if it proves he was responsible, he could be the next WWE legend to see action taken against him.
