9. Early Career Resilience
When arguing how 'underserving' Nash may have been of his time under wrestling's brightest lights, many ignore the fact that 'Big Sexy' paid his dues to get there, surviving some of the more horrific ideas from the bargain basement of wrestling's creatively damaged early-90's.
Naturally afforded advantages due to his impressive size, WCW signed Nash having spotted his domineering presence working security in the Atlanta strip joint scene.
However, upon his television debut, he was given an orange mohawk, christened 'Steel', and placed in useless sub-Road Warriors tag team 'The Master Blasters'.
Having lost his first partner 'Iron' within a month then 'Blade' three months later after the team's momentum rapidly collapsed, Nash quickly moved on to portraying 'Oz', a silver-haired pillock in a green cape somehow based on the film's Wonderful Wizard.
When that predictably flopped, he took on the cartoon casino mobster persona of Vinnie Vegas, which would inadvertently finally be his ticket out of a promotion consistently saddling him with these abysmal gimmicks.
Bringing his organic charisma to the role, Nash performed with such comedic gusto that he'd catch the eye of Intercontinental Champion Shawn Michaels, leading to the formation of a friendship that would change his life and career forever.
