“Time flies when you got a gun in your mouth” WWE Legend Kevin Nash makes disturbing comments discussing son’s sudden demise from cardiac arrest

The passing of Kevin Nash’s son prevented him from moving on with his life. In a recent interview, he revealed that, as a result of his traumatic experience, he suffers from distressing suicidal thoughts.

The WWE Hall of Famer on a recent episode of the “Kliq This” podcast, in which he discussed his struggles with suicidal ideation and provided insights into his own life. Nash opened up about his grief over the loss of his son Tristen, who died at age 26 from a cardiac arrest.

”Time flies when you got a gun in your mouth. I mean, time flies when you’re having fun,” Nash said. 

As soon as the topic came, Sean Oliver, one of the show’s co-hosts, tried to change the subject by saying, “Don’t play like that. You have guns, so you can’t say those things,”. Despite this, Nash was already emotionally scarred, and he ended up replying, “I can do whatever the f— I want to do. Long as I leave a note.”

Just a few short days before the untimely passing of his young son, Nash decided to stop drinking with his son. The former wrestler points the finger at alcohol and encourages younger generations to abstain from drinking alcoholic beverages as well.

“Alcohol is the nastiest … it’s a nasty drug. Anybody out there, if you haven’t drunk, you’ve probably done yourself an incredible service. If you do drink, and you’re having problems and know it’s affecting your life and you know it’s affecting your health, you can’t see the damage it’s doing.” said Nash.

Kevin has been happily married to Tamara for the past 35 years, and Tristen is the only child they had together. The 63-year-old wrestler described the impact that the death of their only child had on them.

“Every morning when I wake up, the first thing that happens is I come to the realization that instead of there being three human beings in my home, there’s now two. And the third person isn’t on vacation or staying with friends or is out late. He is never coming back. And then I sit up in the bed and I have absolutely nothing I have to do, and it’s like, ‘So, why am I getting out of bed?'” Kevin added.

Kevin began his career in professional wrestling in 1990 and ended it in 2020.
