Kevin Nash has now not once, not twice, but thrice managed to surprise the WWE Universe with his unexpected appearance. Once showing up as Diesel in the Royal Rumble, he shocked the world after an absence for years from WWE wrestling. His return no doubt initiated the release of the Mattel WWE Diesel wrestling figure available in Mattel WWE Elite 16:
The popularity of the Diesel figure was unprecedented for a classic Mattel WWE appearance, including a WWE Championship, removable vest and spot on likeness of Diesel during his WWE peak. With full articulation and molded pants with tassels, wrestling figure fans had finally gotten the chance to grab Kevin Nash in a form they had been previously only been treated to a couple of times. The excitement was short lived, however, as the figure was packaged lightly with the availability of ‘The Outsiders’ Mattel WWE Elite 16 Kevin Nash wrestling figure:
The Mattel WWE Elite 16 Kevin Nash portrayed Big Sexy during his WCW peak, complete with bright red Outsiders outfit, black tassels and a spray painted WCW Championship! The figure also presented a completely separate head scan for Nash with long, blonde trademark locks. Wrestling figure fans made clear their desire for both versions but with their short packed release and difficult availability, only few fans were able to get ahold of the now sought after and difficult to find figure.
The idea still stands that Mattel WWE figure collectors still want more of Kevin Nash and aside from his many classic looks, his modern day appearances may prove more desirable. After showing up more times than most classic superstars during the recent WWE timeline, Kevin Nash’s modern day look is something wrestling figure fans would enjoy in Mattel WWE figure form. His return in 2011, from his canceled match with CM Punk to his Sledgehammer ladder match with Triple H at TLC 2011, would make for an excellent template for a modern day Kevin Nash figure. Most likely his attire would be based on that very slugfest with Triple H, where Nash sported long, black hair.
This Kevin Nash could sport an angry head sculpt, come with a ladder or sledge hammer accessory (or both!) and include Nash’s singlet and leather pants wrestling attire design from the actual event. It would have to represent his entire run after his Summerslam 2011 return, and would do so nicely as most of his other appearances came in plain clothes!
Kevin Nash returned at the 2014 Royal Rumble, surprising fans yet again and throwing around some WWE Superstars before suffering elimination. Noticeably more determined and agile, Nash was sporting a new short brown haircut with only one elbow pad, giving new possibilities and asking new questions as to whether or not he would return to the WWE to once again try to ‘stick the winner.’ Big Daddy Cool Kevin Nash remains a sought after Mattel WWE action figure, between those that have already been produced and those that may show up in the future.
