The holidays are supposed to be a time of cheer as they give everyone the chance to be with his or her loved ones. Around the WWE, programming gets a lot more kid-friendly, and it is holiday-focused around this time of year. For example, Hulk Hogan portrayed the “Ho Ho Hogan” persona and dressed up like Santa Claus. Dean Ambrose and Bray Wyatt fought in a “Miracle on 34th Street Fight” on Raw.
However, this time of year can also come with the negative as well. TMZ Sports is reporting that former-WWE star Kevin Nash was arrested for battery following a bloody fight with his son.
“The 55-year-old legend — who is currently under contract with the WWE — was taken into custody in Volusia County, Florida after cops received a call about a domestic incident just after midnight. When cops arrived to the scene… the noticed blood on Kevin’s face and arrested Nash and his 18-year-old son Tristen for battery. Both men were hauled to a nearby jail where they were booked and are currently being held without bond.”
Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time Nash was involved with the authorities in the wrong way. Back in 2011, Nash cleared up an article by TMZ that reported him being arrested for battery. Nash ended up slugging a guy who was hitting on his wife in a restaurant in Florida. The charge was later dropped, but Nash was originally arrested on suspicion of battery. Nash faulted TMZ for their “great journalism.”
There will be repercussions, of course, that will affect his relationship with the WWE. It is no secret that WWE doesn’t like troublemakers; well, for the most part. Earlier this Summer, Emma was arrested for theft at a Wal-Mart. One day later, she was released from her contract with the WWE.
Not even a day later, the WWE reinstated Emma in what was a very confusing sequence of events. Now, there is a chance that the WWE could pull the plug on the Rawreunion that is planned for the January 19th edition of Monday Night Raw.
Nash was supposed to show up, along with former-WWE superstars Shawn Michaels and Scott Hall. If the WWE doesn’t want to publicize Nash’s name, the WWE Universe may not see Diesel back in a WWE ring come 2015. As of right now, Nash hasn’t tweeted anything to deny or dispute his arrest. We’ll keep you updated on this situation as it develops.
To update all of you on this shocking development, Ringside News is reporting that the 55-year old WWE legend’s son attacked his mother, which caused the dispute between Nash and his son, Tristan Nash. A 911 call was placed that led to both men being put in jail last night. TMZ is also noting that alcohol was involved in the domestic dispute.
