Tristen Nash, the son of legend Kevin Nash, has died aged 26.

A representative for the Hall of Famer revealed the tragic news on Thursday (October 20), and revealed how the former world champion and his son had enjoyed their time together working on his new podcast.

In a statement to Fightful’s Sean Ross Sapp, the rep said: ‘On behalf of Kevin and Tamara Nash, I have to unfortunately report that their son Tristen Nash has tragically passed away at the age of 26.

‘Tristen recently started working on Kevin’s new podcast and the two enjoyed their time together. The Nash family asks if you could please respect their privacy during this time.’

No cause of death has been revealed.

In a devastating twist, Tristan’s death was announced on the birthday of – AKA Razor Ramon – who.

Kevin and Scott’s friend and fellow Kliq member Sean ‘X-Pac’ Waltman was among those to pay tribute after Thursday’s devastating news.

‘My heart is in a million pieces thinking about what 1 of my best friends in life is going through. I [love] U 4-Life Kev,’ Waltman tweeted, while Matt Hardy added: ‘My thoughts are with Kevin Nash & his family following the passing of his son. It’s absolutely tragic.’

And podcast network AdFreeShows wrote: ‘The entire AdFreeShows.com family and Podcast Heat network are shocked and saddened to learn of the passing of Tristen Nash. Our hearts are with Kevin and his wife Tamara during this most difficult time.’

When Tamara fell pregnant with Tristen – the couple’s only child – Kevin left WWE for WCW in 1996, which gave him an easier work and travel schedule and ultimately led to the industry-changing formation of the nWo (New World Order) alongside Nash and Hulk Hogan.

Kevin is a two-time Hall of Famer, going in as a solo inductee in in 2015 and then as a member of the nWo five years later.
