Apparently, ROH wants a lot of international talent for their upcoming series of matches in Philadelphia and Toronto. In addition to Hiroshi Tanahashi and Kazuchika Okada, the company has now secured the services of Tetsuya Naito. For those of you that do not remember, the veteran performer worked a couple of matches for TNA, including a handicap match against Kevin Nash on Impact Wrestling. No word yet on who he will be working with.

At Wrestlemania, fans finally got to witness the much anticipated showdown between two of the greatest stables of all time, the nWo and DX. While scripting the match and segment, many backstage felt that a lot of the alliances and logic did not make sense. Hulk Hogan, Kevin Nash and Scott Hall were longtime enemies of Sting. Plus, they are also real life friends with Shawn Michaels, Triple H and Sean Waltman. WWE went through with it anyways.

There is some backstage heat on Kevin Nash from WWE because of his hall of fame induction. For starters, management is upset with him for refusing to be inducted as the Diesel character. Nash did not want to be remembered as one of the worst drawing champions of all time. Being inducted under his real name enables him to use that in Hollywood. Another reason why the front office is upset is because Nash put over WCW for giving guaranteed contracts.

WWE officials were said to be a bit upset with Shawn Michaels at the hall of fame ceremony, where he was inducting his long time friend, both in real life and on screen, Kevin Nash. Management initially had a script written for him, and both sides had approved of things. Michaels, however, decided at the last minute to throw away the scripted promo and speak from the heart because that is what he really wanted to do in the first place.

For more than a decade now, the internet wrestling community has repeated the same tired joke about Kevin Nash tearing his quad whenever his name is mentioned. So, to mock those particular fans, the WWE hall of fame performer decided to trick them last night. After taking a spear outside the ring from Billy Gunn, Nash immediately grabbed his thighs, feigning an injury. The former world heavyweight champion revealed that he is just fine.

In the third match at Wrestlemania, Triple H defeated Sting by pin fall after hitting him with the end of a sledgehammer during a Stinger Splash attempt. The match thrilled the audience because Sean Waltman, Shawn Michaels, Billy Gunn and Road Dogg came out to help HHH, while Hulk Hogan, Kevin Nash and Scott Hall came out to help their former WCW cohort. In the end, though, Vince McMahon made sure WWE won the battle.
