Former WWE champion Chris Jericho defended his two friends – Eddie Guerrero and Chris Benoit – yesterday on Twitter after Kevin Nash had a long and very interesting interview on Grantland.com.
In the interview, Nash said he still thinks that neither Benoit nor Guerrero belonged in the main event.
“When Benoit and Guerrero hugged [at the end of WrestleMania XX], that was the end of the business,” Nash said, before making yet another harsh remark towards the two who are no longer alive.
“You put two fu**ing guys that were great workers that were the same height as the fu**ing referees, and I’m sorry, man. Are you going to watch a porno movie with a guy with a three-inch dick? Even if you’re not gay, you will not watch a porno movie with a guy with a three-inch dick. That’s not the standard in porno films. So you put a 5-foot-7 guy as your world champion,” Nash complained.
The comments did not go down well with Chris Jericho, who was a big friend of both Guerrero and Benoit.
“Funny how @realkevinnash says wrestling ‘died’ when Benoit and Guerrero were champs-Yet the worst year for WWE biz was 95 when he was on top,” Jericho wrote, noting WWE’s financial trouble in 1995 when Nash was the champion. “Hope @realkevinnash doesn’t tear his quad tweeting! #typicalbigman #nwothirdwheel,” Jericho added, obviously making fun of Nash’s frequent injuries.
Kevin Nash called Jericho a “puppet master” and said that he always knew that Y2J was “a closet mark.”
