Geek'd Con is Shreveport's biggest comic and pop culture event, and it will return this August for the show's 5th anniversary. The event will once again be at the Shreveport Convention Center in Downtown Shreveport. This year's show will be on August 16th-18th.

WWE Hall of Famer Kevin Nash is coming to Downtown Shreveport for Geek'd Con this August.

Big Sexy, Diesel, Vinnie Vegas, or Tarzan...whatever you know Kevin Nash as, you can't miss him. Standing at nearly 7 feet tall, Nash is an imposing figure anywhere he goes.

As a founding member of the nWo, Nash cemented his legacy in the history of pro wrestling. The history of pro wrestling can never be told without including Nash and the nWo.

But before that, he was already a major name, winning the WWF Championship in 1994 as Diesel, he held the title for 358 days including a successful title defense against Shawn Michaels at Wrestlemania XI, with Pam Anderson as his manager.

Nash also won WWF's Intercontinental Championship, and Tag Team Championship (with Shawn Michaels), making him a WWE Triple Crown Champion. He also won the WCW Championship 4 times, and the WCW Tag Team titles 9 times.

But Kevin Nash wasn't just a wrestler...he's got some serious acting credits on his resume too.

Many women will recognize him right away for his role in Magic Mike and Magic Mike XXL where he played Tarzan (a male stripper obliviously), but comic book fans likely know him from one of his many comic book movie roles.

He played Super Shredder in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze, The Russian in the 2004 Punisher movie, and appeared in the Swamp Thing TV series as Quixo.

You may have also caught Nash on screen in John Wick, DOA: Dead or Alive, The Longest Yard, Grandma's Boy, or Sabrina, The Teenage Witch.

Come see Kevin Nash this August at Geek'd Con!
