Kevin Nash talked about the tragic death of his 26-year-old son, Tristen, on his podcast “Kliq”. In the podcast, he talks about his son having a seizure which he believes was a result of quitting drinking cold turkey.

Nash said, “The seizure caused the cardiac arrest.”

He said, “He was basically dead in his room on the floor with the EMT working on him. They got him back and got him in the ambulance and they tried to save his life. So to the people at Halifax hospital, doctors and nurses, I thank you."

“We both decided that we were going to stop drinking so it was a situation where you know we both went cold turkey,” he added.

Tristen had been working as a producer on his father’s podcast, said reports.

“He had had a couple of incidents. We actually sat up here last Wednesday and in the course of the show, he drank four or five beers unbeknownst to me. I got pissed at him because he had a situation at the beginning of the year where he was hospitalized for almost 60 days,” Nash said.

“After the show, and a week later, he passes,” he said. “When you look back at things, it’s like, so he wasn’t feeling good. So we were kind of, my wife and I were just kind of like waiting on him hand and foot. We knew he was trying to do this. One of the things that if you WebMD that, one of the things of cold turkey is that you have an increased risk of having a seizure,” he added.

63-year-old Nash is one of the most influential wrestlers of the past generation. Along with Scott Hall, he left the then-WWF for WCW and soon formed the NWO with Hulk Hogan.

In the podcast, he talked about the people he heard from in wake of his son's untimely death which included former WWE chairman Vince McMahon – who texted him, “This is my new number. If you need me, I’m here” – and Ric Flair, who lost his son, Reid, in 2013 at the age of 25.
