Sizing Up Kevin Nash

I have seen and written about Kevin Nash many times, but I am always taken a little aback at how big he really is.  "Big Sexy" is really a big dude.
The picture below puts things in a little perspective.  Earlier this year, Resistance Pro wrestler Tommy Else joined Johngy's Beat for C2E2.  Tommy is a big guy.  He's probably about 6'1" and about 190 pounds of muscle.  Next to Big Kev, Tommy doesn't look so big (and I look pretty scrawny).
Kev is certainly not in quite as good shape as he was in his wrestling prime, but I still wouldn't mess with him.  He's one of those guys who exudes strength.  I sincerely believe it would have been pretty easy for him to wrap his hands around our heads and bang them together, if he had chosen.  There wouldn't have been much we could have done to prevent it either.
Fortunately that was not in Kev's plans.  It wouldn't have looked good to the rest of the people waiting to meet him if he injured the first two guys (especially since one was a big guy, too).
Thank you Kev for always being nice at these cons.  Either way though, you know I will always look up to you.
