When Kevin Nash reemerged in the WWE last year at SummerSlam and attacked CM Punk, many wrestling fans thought he and Punk would be involved in a program to close out the feud.

But Nash disappeared, and there was no further mention of him and Punk in the same sentence again. Nash sat down with PWTorch.com and explained why his feud with CM Punk was halted.

"I never went into it and WWE never went into it because of the privacy issue. What happened was, because of the wellness program...”

He explained that because of the specific drug he was taking for preventative health care, he was not medically cleared to perform in the WWE.

Nash commented on the type of drug that he was taking at that time:

Because my dad died of a heart attack at 36 years old, they do beyond a thorough physical. Well, my heart and everything else was fine, but I'm on Plavix, and Plavix is a blood platelet agulator; they call it a blood thinner.

Nash's explanation seems to make sense, as a drug like Plavix remains in your system for quite some time.

The WWE obviously could not wait for Nash to be medically cleared to continue the program with CM Punk.

Nash's return to the WWE was met with a mixed reaction; he and Punk exchanged a series of promos, and Nash talked about several outdated references regarding his career that younger wrestling fans did not fathom.

With Kevin Nash possibly jumping ship to TNA, the majority of wrestling fans will be glad that the conclusion of the Nash-Punk feud did not see the light of day.
