Kevin Nash, an actor, and WWE wrestler has spoken out about the loss of his son Tristen who died last week at the age of 26. According to Nash Tristen who had recently been working on his father’s podcast passed away from a cardiac arrest following a seizure brought on by alcohol withdrawal.
On the most recent episode of his “Kliq THIS” podcast, Nash claimed that the seizure was to blame for the cardiac arrest. “The EMT was working on him while he was practically dead in his room on the floor. They recovered him, placed him in the ambulance and made an effort to save his life.
I want to express my gratitude to the staff at Halifax Hospital including the nurses and doctors. After “a couple of incidences,” according to Nash, including one in which Tristen was drinking beer during the podcast a few weeks ago, he and his son decided to stop drinking cold turkey.
Nash stated, “I became mad at him because he had this scenario where he was in the hospital for approximately 60 days at the beginning of the year. Nash claimed that Tristen and he both decided to cut back on drinking, but that they soon experienced withdrawal symptoms and felt “not great.”
