Although he is best known for his days as an in-ring competitor, Nash also served on WCW’s booking committee. He was responsible for writing several storyline developments that occurred on WCW television, including angles that involved fellow nWo member Hulk Hogan.
Speaking on Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Sessions show, Nash said he was relieved when Vince Russo replaced him as WCW’s head writer. He also discussed the pressure of rewriting the show on short notice.
“You have the Hulk who comes in at 5:35, watches TV, and says, ‘Don’t work for me, bro,'” Nash said. “And not only do you have to rewrite and get everything approved by him, you have to redo three hours of a show. You have 2:45 hard out. I mean, it’s a process. It’s just there Going out is not on the mat.
“I was like, ‘Whoa.’ I don’t know how long I did it, but I do know that when they brought Rousseau in, they were like, ‘We’re gonna book Russia.’ I was like, ‘It’s his, it’s all his.'”
Two decades later, Vince Russo is now the fantasy-books of present-day WWE storylines on Wrestling’s YouTube channel. Watch the video above to hear Rousseau’s idea for Jinder Mahal’s long-awaited babyface turn.
