“Oz: The Great And Powerful” had a great opening weekend so that gives me the perfect excuse to post this clip from 1991’s WCW Great American Bash of Kevin Nash as Oz taking on Ron Simmons!
Ted Turner owned the rights to the 1939 movie and so WCW decided to take advantage of that by naming a wrestler after The Wizard Of Oz from the book/movie.
How this was supposed to get Nash over remains a mystery. Mostly it just made him look like a bearded emerald-clothed idiot.
Oh, and he had a little helper (?) who walked with him to the ring for no reason.
Here’s a Wikipedia entry on the “Wizard Of Oz” character if you want to learn about the character Nash was supposed to be portraying.
