Konnan Believes Scott Hall And Kevin Nash Were Responsible For WCW’s Downfall

Konnan recently appeared on an episode of Busted Open Radio to talk about a number of topics including who he believes was responsible for the downfall of WCW.

Konnan said, “I never thought it was Hogan [who killed WCW]. I always thought it was [Scott] Hall and [Kevin] Nash. As a matter of fact, I said Eric [Bischoff] hitched his wagon to Hogan instead of the other guys ’cause they were the ones coming up with the cool ideas. They were the cool factor. He’s [Hogan] the one that said, ‘Bro, I’m getting booed. I’ve got to do something to resurrect my career.’ Kevin Sullivan and Eric were the ones that convinced him [to turn heel]. They had to sequester him to make sure he didn’t change his mind or somebody got in his ear, whatever was going on.”

On WCW firing X-Pac/Sean Waltman:

“To me, when they fired X-Pac — ’cause I was there, I was friends with them — and they were sitting in the arena, and they were hot as a motherf***er. They had shirts on, like button-down shirts, and they opened up their shirts and they had WWE shirts.”

On Scott Hall and Kevin Nash acting out after Waltman was fired:

“They were willing to go up in the f***ing ring, open up their shirts show WWE, and support X-Pac. When Eric fired X-Pac, they took their ball and went home — meaning, they were not giving any more ideas, they weren’t coming in on time, they weren’t playing anymore, and just the jealousy and everybody cutting each other’s throats. And Hogan always looking up for himself, that was part of the reason.”
