Damnnnnn. How much does he weigh now?... Of course i believe he's wore pants to the ring his entire career... so it's not due to weight loss. You think he would try to put some meat on those legs.

The middle picture looks like he has some meat on them.... maybe the other ones are just weird angles or something. I'm surprised he hasn't had more leg injuries in his career.



I've torn myself apart.... and tried to figure out why... but the only answer i was ever given... that really fits..... is the fact... that women are crazy.

Not sure if anyone noticed or not, but Kevin Nash is close to 7 feet tall.

I.e. he's got a lot more length to spread the muscles over. How many of the taller NBA players have tree-trunk legs? Have you ever seen other very tall wrestlers like the Undertaker, Kane, El Gigante, etc. in tights? Me neither.

The exceptions to this rule seem to be Andre the Giant and the Big Show, who are not just ``tall'' guys but ``huge, totally proportional freak-of-nature (mit medical condition)'' guys.

So he appears to have small legs (especially in pictures where there's nothing to provide a sense of proportion). ``Putting meat on those legs,'' sounds like such an easy proposition to someone who knows either knows nothing about body types and working out, or who is one of those lucky short guys who can pack on muscle at will (but ends up unable to put his arms against his sides or walk without swinging his legs outwards).

His height, of course, is also a major contributing factor to all those knee problems. It's fairly common, I understand. The human body as it is now just isn't designed to be that big.

I'd imagine if he *had* more meat on those bones his knees'd be even WORSE.

True. Just not much protection for the legs. And you usually dont see the legs on 7 footers like that... except in basketball and then i am usually watching the game.

Undertaker started in tights, Kane has always worn tights.
They seem to have thicker legs than Nash, but I think El Gigante had skinny legs.(he was fricken' huge) Did anyone notice the Triple H framed poster on the wall in the 2nd photo?

I can vouch for the knee troubles coming from being tall. I'm 6'3" at age 16, although I've been around 6'2" for several years now. My knees are trash, and there's no real reason for it other than I've been very tall for my age all my life.

    Uhhhhmmmm...Malone's not one of the NBA's taller guys, at 6'9". He PLAYS at the tallest level, he's a skywalker to you and to 6'4" me, but may not be a good example here.

    I would've jumped in and suggested in Big Kev's defense that his leg muscularity was consistent with bicycling, bicycling and nothing but bicycling-- but looking at the calves, it would have to be on an absolutely flat course.

Looking back I should have been more specific
By `tights' I meant the tighty little'uns worn by Billy & Chuck, the Rock, John Cena and the like. Perhaps `trunks' would have been the right word to use?

Glenn Jacobs might have worn trunks in his Isaac Yankem days, but even then I think he wore `leggings'. I've always remembered the Undertaker in full leggings too, though I never saw him as Mean Mark Callous. We won't talk about el Gigante's *cough* muscle-suit.

As for basketball, the most dominant pre-90's big men in the NBA (namely Russell, Walton, and Chamberlain) all had legs like pipecleaners. I contend that so does Malone. So does Ewing, actually. Please note, I am not, by any means, questioning the leg strength of these men, just pointing out they had what appeared to be (especially in the Little Shorts Era) thin-looking legs. Shaq is simply the Big Show/Andre of basketball.

I'm just shy of 6'2'' myself, but most knee issues I have are due to years of minor-sports related abuse. Being tall has been harder on my back than anything (everything from kitchen counters to lawnmowers are designed for the average height of 5'9'').

As for cycling, surely you mean distance cycling. The guys/gals who cycle the Velodromes have legs like speed-skaters....that is to say scaaaaaaary-big.

Yes, the Undertaker wore short trunks earlier in his career:

Kane's legs look pretty thick to me even concealed with full-length tights. I know that tall guys often have trouble packing on the muscle no matter what their workout regimen is, but neither Kane or Taker has ever seemed to have that problem.

No, I am not talking about their cute little beer guts. ;-)

I don't think so. Sure I am not as big as Nash, but with 6'7" myself, and a friend of mine being 6'10", both over 100 kg, we don't have knee problems, and we never had. Depends on the person, nothing to generalize.

But the Nash pics are really a little spooky. He used to be over 300 lbs., and I wonder what he has now, his legs look like twigs, when I think of the fact that he is/was professional wrestler.

Some men just have a harder time building up their legs, is all. Plus, as you get older, your legs and arms get a little thinner and lose their muscle mass. My father played baseball well into his 40's, and his once masculine legs, while still fit and firm, are growing thinner.

Plus, looking at those pictures, you can see his legs are pressing down into the bed. That could help them to look thinner than what they are, somewhat.

Maybe his workout is more on his upper body and not so much his lower. That's probably how his knee blew out on him. It wasn't strong.

His legs look like my dad's legs.My dad is 6'4 and I'm 6'2 and both our knees are trashed.My dad is 47 and a carpenter,he spends all day on his knees and his knees hardly stay together.

My knees are the same way but mostly due to me falling down.

A LOT!!

I'm a klutz,what can I say.


BTW: With the second toe bigger than the big toe thing,I've heard it means that person is extremely intelligent.

Reese Witherspoon has the same thing,not like I pay attention to anything like that.:)

Samoa Joe brings batons into fights with unarmed men (and gets outsmarted). He cries. Often. And Sting was right, he went too far in the first Booker match, and was given ample warning to not try and kill him, and he continued.
