"On behalf of Kevin and Tamara Nash, I have to unfortunately report that their son Tristen Nash has tragically passed away at the age of 26," read the statement that was released by wrestling reporter Sean Ross Sapp.
"Tristen recently starting working on Kevin's new podcast and the two enjoyed their time together," the statement continued. "The Nash family asks if you could please respect their privacy during this time."
The cause of Tristen Nash's sudden death has yet to be disclosed.
Last week, Tristen posted a photo of himself working with his wrestling legend father on Kevin Nash's new podcast titled "Kliq This." The Kliq was a group of wrestlers in the World Wrestling Federation during mid-1990s that included Kevin Nash, Triple H, Shawn Michaels, Scott Hall, and Sean Waltman.
Earlier this month, Tristen shared an Instagram post about his "beautiful future wife."
A few days later, he posted an Instagram photo of himself and Savanna Kern with the caption: "The best friend I could ever have. The love of my life and beyond brilliant. I love you so much Savanna."
On Sept. 12, Tristen reportedly called Savanna his fiancée.
Tristen was the only child of Kevin and Tamara Nash.
Fox News reported, "Upon the news that Tamara Nash was pregnant, Kevin Nash left WWE for World Championship Wrestling in 1996, according to Wrestling Inc. It led to an easier schedule to help his family and would ultimately lead to the famous New World Order group, which included Hall and Hulk Hogan."
In April, Kevin Nash shared a photo of his son Tristen with the caption: "My reason for living."
In December 2021, Kevin Nash shared a photo of him and his son Tristen at the Phoenix Zoo in 2000.
Tristen was a singer and songwriter in the band the Builders.
Tristen had tattoos expressing his love for his mom and dad on his fingers.
"Kliq This" podcast co-host Sean Oliver reacted to Tristen's death.
"I met a great young man this year named Tristen. He worked with me and his dad on a podcast we have, and proved to be smart, sweet, savvy, witty, and mature beyond his mere handful of years. There were big things coming for him, but it was not to be," Oliver wrote on Twitter. "The unfairness of our short time on earth rears it's ugly head again & we are rendered speechless. To steal a heart so pure, full of potential, is cruelty beyond understanding. Won't try. I have his last text to me: 'Love you.' I read it 50 times in 2 days &, T, I'm gonna read it a lot more."
The wrestling world offered condolences for the sudden death of Tristen.
WWE star the Iron Sheik wrote on Twitter, "KEVIN NASH MY HEART BREAK FOR YOU BUBBA. I LOVE YOU FOREVER."
AEW wrestler Matt Hard said, "My thoughts are with Kevin Nash & his family following the passing of his son. It’s absolutely tragic."
Wrestler Karl “The Machine Gun” Anderson added, "Thoughts and prayers to Kevin Nash during this time."
Kevin Nash, 63, wrestled under his ring name of "Diesel" in the WWE, then used his real name in World Championship Wrestling and Total Nonstop Action Wrestling. Nash is also a founding member of the New World Order, along with Hulk Hogan and Scott Hall.
Pro Wrestling Wiki stated, "Between WWE, WCW, and TNA, Nash has won a total of 21 championships. He is a six-time World Champion: a five-time WCW World Heavyweight Champion, and one-time WWF Champion. He was the longest-reigning WWF Champion of the 1990s, having held the title for 358 days."
