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:
Due to a meniscus tear in my left knee. I won't be traveling this weekend. It's floated and locked my knee joint. Surgery is set for Tuesday— Kevin Nash (@RealKevinNash) July 7, 2017
Facing my 32nd surgery.Few return after 10. Today's my quad injury anniversary. Fuck it guess you better drive a steak in my heart. pic.twitter.com/cXJcAZxipo— Kevin Nash (@RealKevinNash) July 9, 2017
Right on cue, Scott Hall enters with a poignant response.
Only the good die young . You and I will be around awhile. Good luck with the surgery— Scott Hall (@SCOTTHALLNWO) July 9, 2017
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.0comments
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.
