In exclusive comments given to, Kevin Nash has fired back at Honky Tonk Man for remarks he made recently in a interview about Nash and others.

"I don't know Wayne Ferris very well, but I always considered him a class act because he came to a benefit show I was a part of without being asked...but it turns out he's just another old timer who didn't save his money and he's disgruntled at the young guys."

"Here's a guy who was the top heel in the business, or so he says, but he seems pretty disgruntled. Seems maybe he wasn't a top heel at all or maybe he didn't make all the money he says he made. Then again, I'm sure he has a single-wide in Arizona he's proud of."

"When I beat Bill Goldberg for the belt at Starrcade I wasn't booking, and didn't start booking until 38 days after that match. I beat Bill and then handed the belt over to Hulk. That was the angle."

"He's all over Jeff Jarrett for supposedly stealing his gimmick, but here he was doing a bogus Elvis gimmick to begin with. Everybody steals from everybody. It's like honor among thieves. I'm sure somebody somewhere was the first one to do a headlock, but that guy probably didn't go around accusing everybody of stealing his move."

"He's talking about bitch slapping this guy and that guy...he needs to just keep his mouth shut. We're real sorry that the indy shows are full of young guys making $500 taking his job, but I'm sure the Chevron on the corner is hiring. Of course he may have to trim his sideburns."

"People like him under the kind of stress he seems to be under usually go postal and go to high buildings and start firing a few rounds. He needs therapy and I'm sure a lot of people who made a lot of money in this business would be willing to help him. Just not me, and probably not Flair or Jarrett either."

"He refused to do a job and it cost him his career. He's a mark. I never had a problem doing a job. I did one for Rey Mysterio. I know it's fake, Wayne. I hate to tell you, but it's fake. You never had any heat. The only heat you had was turn the channel heat."

"One last thing, Wayne...if you don't like my comments, eat a bowl of d****."

When Kevin Nash's friend Ross Forman contacted him today for comment on Honky Tonk Man's most recent comments, Nash had this to say:

"I don't have time to reply to him. I have a life. Yes he is the greatest of all time. In fact, when I sit around with a bunch of the guys talking about the greatest wrestlers of all time, Honky Tonk Man is the first wrestler to come to mind. It's pathetic that he's sitting home listening to and masturbating to Bruce Springsteen's "Glory Days". Wayne, I initially said I wouldn't, but now I will send you $ buy a life."
