May all of our friendships be like the one Kevin Nash and Scott Hall share.
The two are nearly inseparable when chronicling the history of wrestling. They left WWE together in 1996 for Ted Turner's WCW. While there, they created the most iconic stable in wrestling history with Hulk Hogan, the nWo.
It looks like Nash has fallen on some hard times concerning his functional health. He made the following Tweets over the weekend:
Right on cue, Scott Hall enters with a poignant response.
Despite his grief, it's hard to imagine Kevin Nash reading his buddy's message and not smiling. Hall himself is no stranger to struggle outside of the ring as he's fought addiction for years if not decades. Although Hall would likely give the most credit to wrestler turned modern day sherpa, Diamond Dallas Page, for his recovery, it's hard to imagine Nash and the rest of the "Clique" not being there to help.
The Clique is one of wrestling's most illustrious groups, featuring both Hall and Nash, along with Triple H, Shawn Michaels, and Sean Waltman. The core formed in the early 90's when all of the wrestlers were just beginning their careers in WWE. Within a few years, they had risen to the business' highest peak, dominating both WWE and WCW.
Their lucrative success comes with the requisite detractors, as some camps feel that the Clique were politically in their rise, often "burying" other talent in favor of their triumphs. While this is probably accurate, it's debatable as a valid criticism. These men changed wrestling, and it only took about 3 years. So outside of a few sour apples, the Clique is highly acclaimed.
It's good to see them still supporting each other in 2017. Even if they are;t at close as we as fans would like to think, there's obviously a deep connection between the boys. Hang in there, boys.
