10 Questions for Vinnie Vegas - WCW Magazine [June 1992]
I thought about transcribing this entire thing but reading an in-character Kevin Nash run through every Las Vegas reference he has while answering questions is a complete time-waste. Though, there was one question asked that I found to be kinda interesting:
“WCW MAGAZINE: Is there a part of your game you’d like to improve?”
[VINNIE] VEGAS: I’m gonna be honest with you, kid. I’d like to improve my aerial skills. Hey, I’ll never be like that Jushin Liger guy, but if I could perfect a dropkick off the top rope—forget about it! They’d have to give me the belt by default.”
Vinnie Vegas with a missle dropkick in his arsenal? That would have been a sight to see! Can anybody point me to a match where Nash even attempted any move off the top rope where it came off gracefully?
Not giving the guy shit, I’m just saying that I don’t believe he ever got around to improving his aerial game.
Vinnie Vegas - WCW Magazine Collector Series Special #3 [December 1992]
“Hey, yo — I’m always an odds-on favorite to score the pin!’
Even if Vinnie Vegas didn’t stand seven feet tall, his WCW debut last year at Clash of the Champions XVIII would have been impressive. The 300-pounder made quick work of veteran Thomas Rich, pinning him in under a minute following his “snake eyes” finisher: a devastating facedrop into the top turnbuckle.
In the months since, this arrogant Las Vegas native has been testing the WCW waters in a variety of ways: solo matches, tag teams, different management. But it’s likely that he has found his calling in The Vegas Connection, a formidable tag team consisting of Vegas and “Diamond” Dallas Page. This combination is currently giving a lot of potential tag team opponents sleepless nights.
Vegas is a clear part of the energetic youth movement in WCW, but there are those who hope this massive rulebreaker won’t be too successful!”
Look at that world-famous Kevin Nash smirk!
