WWE legend Kevin Nash has lost his son, Tristen Nash.
On Thursday, professional wrestling journalist Sean Ross Sapp revealed via Twitter that Tristen had passed away at the age of 26.
The message began, “On behalf of Kevin and Tamara Nash, I have to regrettably report that their son Tristen Nash has tragically passed away at the age of 26.
As the document elaborated, “Tristen has lately begun assisting Kevin with his podcast, and the two have been having a great time working together. The Nash family would appreciate your privacy at this time.”
The details surrounding his untimely demise remain sketchy.
As of Thursday afternoon, Kevin has not addressed the loss in any public forum.
It was his Kliq Sean Oliver, co-host of the program, who shared his thoughts on the development on Twitter.
“This year, I had the pleasure of meeting Tristen, a fantastic young man. He helped his dad and me with our podcast and demonstrated intelligence, kindness, savviness, humor, and maturity much above his years. Big things were supposed to happen to him, but fate had other plans “Oliver penned.
So he went on to say “Again, the unfairness of our brief time on Earth rears its ugly head, and we find ourselves unable to express our frustration. It is incomprehensible cruelty to take such a tender, hopeful heart. I simply refuse to even try. His final text to me simply read: “Love you guy.”
I read it fifty times in two days and plan to read it many more times in the future. #T”
Initial Klik between Kevin and Oliver Initially aired in July.
Tristen posted a photo of his father, who looked like he was recording an episode, seated at a table with headphones on, in front of a computer, just days before his death.
“Currently partaking in said activity. Hashtag, Podcast, and Keywords: #kliqthis #nash “He labeled the image.
When a fan commented, “Who’s legs are those?” he seemed to be alluding to his relationship with his father.
Just a huge powerful guy, Tristen said, pointing to the tattoo on his leg.
While responding to another user who identified Tristen as the podcast’s executive producer, he said, “Yes, I am just another employee here. For the Nash side, I ensure that everything runs smoothly.”
In April, Kevin posted a snapshot of himself and Tristen to Instagram, captioning it, “My reason for living.”
