Nash Arrested Following Incident

Wednesday, Dec. 24

WWE star Kevin Nash was arrested Wednesday following a domestic incident that allegedly involved him fighting his 18-year-old son, Tristen, according to Volusia County (search required) corrections records in Florida. TMZ Sports originally reported his arrest:

Nash, 55, was arrested in the early morning hours of Christmas Eve after police arrived on the scene and saw the former WWE champion had been bloodied following a fight. He was arrested but has yet to be formally charged with a crime.

Tristen, Nash's only son, was arrested on battery charges after allegedly attacking his mother. Details about the case are still being uncovered as police investigate, but the TMZ report indicated alcohol "may have been a factor." Kevin and Tristen Nash spent the night in jail and have yet to receive a bail number.

WWE provided a statement on the arrest to Bleacher Report: "Kevin Nash has not regularly performed for WWE since January 2004. He is currently under a non-wrestling 'legends' contract which has been immediately suspended until this domestic dispute is resolved."

WWE also provided a statement from Nash's attorney, Michael J. Politis: "It's an unfortunate situation. They’re a good family. I’m hoping the State Attorney’s Office will receive my information and dismiss the charges. The kid was out of control, and the father was defending his wife. I’m pretty confident we will have a resolution in the next couple of months."

Kevin Nash is one of the most decorated wrestling stars of his generation, a founding member of the WCW's NWO faction and a seminal force in the company's rise (and fall). He was a five-time WCW world heavyweight champion and a nine-time tag team champion, six of which came with longtime partner Scott Hall. He won the WWE Championship once and was twice a tag team titleholder with Shawn Michaels.

Since rejoining WWE in 2011 on a legends contract, Nash has largely done sporadic promotional appearances along with the occasional in-ring action. His most recent active wrestling appearance came as a surprise entrant in the 2014 Royal Rumble.

Nash, Hall and Hulk Hogan are scheduled to appear on the Jan. 19 edition of Raw in Dallas for a possible NWO reunion, according to the American Airlines Center website (h/t Cageside Seats). WWE has not issued a statement on Nash's arrest or indicated whether the reunion will go on as planned.
