The condition that prohibited Kevin Nash’s participation in the main event of the TNA PPV on October 23 were the symptoms of atherosclerosis, a disease characterized by hardening of plaque in the arteries of the heart. According to the Pro Wrestling Torch, Nash’s multiple-day stay in an Orlando, Fla., hospital stemmed from a 30% blockage of a key artery, leading to chest pains that led Nash to believe he was having a heart attack.
Nash, 46, whose condition led to the cancellation of a planned title loss to Jeff Jarrett at the Bound for Glory PPV, has a family history of aortic aneurysm that caused Nash to take the problem seriously, according to the Torch. He is scheduled for a CATSCAN today that will further determine the seriousness of his problems.
While Nash’s health problems have approved from what they had at first appeared to be, the schedule for his return has not been revised, and he is still withdrawn from TNA broadcasts.
