Kevin Nash is regarded as a wrestling legend. He has twice been inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, and he is also a celebrity outside the wrestling business. Nash has appeared in a number of films throughout the years, but it appears that one opportunity was lost to him.

During his first run in WWE, he won the world title before defecting to WCW and forming the New World Order, one of the most renowned stables of all time, with Hulk Hogan and Scott Hall. According to Kevin Nash, he was considered for a role in “Striptease,” but Vince McMahon nixed the idea.

Nash appeared on the latest episode of Kliq This podcast. He recalled how he read for “Striptease”, but Vince McMahon wouldn’t let him take the role because it would have impacted his WWE schedule too much. Nash also commended the individual who obtained the Ving Rhames.

I read for the movie Striptease, and I nailed it. I found out later on that they were very interested in using me, and Vince said, ‘No way. You’re not taking him for that long.’ So Vin Grimes (?) got the part. He killed it.


Kevin Nash has starred in films such as “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze,” “The Punisher,” “The Longest Yard,” “Magic Mike,” and “John Wick” over the years, among others. Nash recently addressed speculations of Vince McMahon’s return to WWE. You can watch the full interview below.
