Savio Vega Shoots Back at Kevin Nash & the Kliq
Author: J. Zarka, [email protected]
Yesterday, we put up a story where Kevin Nash inferred the reason Savio Vega was let go from WWE was due to a prank Savio pulled on Shawn Michaels and Scott Hall on an overseas flight back in 95/96. Here is the exact quote Kevin Nash made:
“I remember when Savio cut Scott and Shawn’s hair. Like fucking took a little piece of the mullet! I don’t think Shawn or Scott fell asleep on a plane after that, Savio didn’t either. I don’t think he was around much longer after that. I think he was pretty much, ‘Adios, amigos!’ because fucking Scott brought him in! Scott brought him in as his buddy from Puerto Rico. I don’t give a fuck what they did to him, you don’t fucking [do that]. I guess he didn’t know what the food chain was.”
Savio Vega has since shot back and reached out to us on Twitter. This is what he had to say:
@pws_official hey Nash he is not telling the true I not got fire why he is not say the kliq plant to get me fire n yoko ear w happen is more

As English is Savio’s second language, typing in English naturally isn’t his forte. The point he was trying to make was, “Hey, Nash is not telling the truth. I didn’t get fired. Why is he not saying that the Kliq planned to get me fired? Yokozuna heard this and more.”
Back in September, Pro Wrestling Stories had a phone interview with Savio where he talked about a variety of topics, including his rise to stardom in Puerto Rico, being a witness to the murder of Bruiser Brody, his time in WWF, the 1995 King of the Ring tournament, being the first person to hand singles losses to the Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin, and of course, the stranglehold of the Kliq backstage where the conversation of how they tried to mastermind Savio out of the company came up.
We’ve heard Kevin Nash’s story, now hear what Savio has to say about it.
