Another fan tweeted: “My condolences to Kevin Nash, losing your best friend and son in the same year gotta be tough.” The elder Nash’s best friend was Scott Hall.

Jason Solomon posted: “No parent should have to bury their child. My condolences to Kevin Nash and his family after the loss of his son, Tristen, at only 26 years of age.”

Scott Waltman, a fellow Hall of Famer, paid tribute to Nash and and his son. He wrote: “My heart is in a million pieces thinking about what 1 of my best friends in life is going through. I (heart) U 4-Life Kev.”

Producer Billy Corben wrote: “RIP Tristen Nash. My heart breaks for Kevin Nash, Tamara and their family.”

Another fan tweeted: “To be hit with this on his best friend’s birthday just makes it inconceivably harder. Condolences to Kevin Nash, RIP Tristen Nash.”
