Maryland Championship Wrestling was more than happy to have Kevin Nash at their live event this weekend, even after he was arrested for battery and suspended almost immediately by WWE. However, the former world heavyweight champion opted to cancel out of the appearance at the last minute, citing some sort of medical emergency involving his son. The promotion was able to replace him with Mick Foley, thus keeping their fan base pleased.

Initially, Kevin Nash was to have been a big part of the promotional campaign for the Royal Rumble, having been scheduled to make an appearance alongside Shawn Michaels, Scott Hall and Hulk Hogan on the episode of Monday Night Raw before the pay per view. However, with his arrest, it appears that WWE officials have opted to remove him from the event. They are going about it quietly, though, as to not generate any more publicity from the situation.

While WWE immediately suspended Kevin Nash after he was arrested for battery, there is another wrestling promotion that is still standing behind the big guy. Maryland Championship Wrestling has announced that they are still honoring the contract that they had with the former world heavyweight champion, who agreed to make an appearance at their live event in Joppa on Saturday night. Nash should have no problems with being booked on the indies.
