The WWE Hall of Famer Kevin Nash’s knee bears a striking resemblance to Frankenstein’s monster — and thats good news for him.
After three decades of powerslams, piledrivers, powerbombs, and moonsaults, WWE superstar Kevin Nash’s knees — well, one of them—have finally had enough.
In an effort to find some relief from the crippling pain, Nash went under the knife to replace a right knee he says has bothered him for more than 30 years.
In the long run, surgery will save him a world of pain, but the short-term result is as ugly as it gets. Nash’s knee post-surgery looks like something right out of a horror movie. With a boatload of staples and swelling the size of a grapefruit, the knee makes for a frightening photo.
Nash uploaded a photo of his knee to Instagram, looking about four times the size it normally is and held together by more than 20 stitches.
“Not to pretty, but its straight. Let it heal and start training. Amazing process. Sore as f**k but finally fixed after 33 years,” Nash wrote in the caption.
Hes thrilled to have finally taken steps to rid himself of pain, having posted previously about how much trouble his knee gives him.
Nash played college basketball for the University of Tennessee but quit to join the World Championship Wrestling (WCW), where he began in 1990, as well as in the WWF and WWE. Nash made a name for himself playing Diesel — Shawn Michaels’ bodyguard — and won the International Championship.
Just how soon the legendary 58-year-old will be back in action is anyone’s guess, but no doubt he’ll be putting in hard work at the gym to make it happen as soon as possible.
