The transformation of Kevin Kelly into Nailz was one of the more bizarre ones for the few people who knew who he was. A gimmick 180. Never thought anything of him in the ring. The only thing Nailz is remembered for is choking Vince in his office.

Hilarious in retrospect how right-wing batshit crazy this angle was that an abused inmate would be the heel in this angle. Bossman had admitted to being a corrupt prison guard when he first debuted as a heel, so he got what he deserved here.

Then WCW did the most WCW thing ever and brought him in as The Prisoner or something. Out of all the ex-WWF guys to bring in, and all the gimmicks to steal, they even had to take this one.

This one was impossible to suspend disbelief, even for a child. Escaped convict, wearing orange prison jumpsuit, attacks former prison guard on national television. Is now employed by wrestling company.

Angle needed blood. No reason why a blood capsule or something couldn’t have been used to signify internal bleeding. He didn’t need forehead blood because Nailz did most of his work on the body, but if Bossman had the mouth drool blood and got stretchered out it would’ve been much better. But Nailz sucked. He was a roided up Mr Magnificent in the AWA and he sucked there, so now he’s an upper mid carder against Bossman? Total shit, and he looked ridiculous with what I call the roid hairdo (Stringy, dead, and dirty looking) and the jumpsuit. Like what was said before - if this was a legit angle, he doesn’t even make it to the arena dressed like that. And the other person, think it was Rossi, mentioning WCW...they brought him in as The Convict, and I think he wore the same outfit. If I recall, he only appeared on TV once, possibly twice, before WWF legal but then with the cease and desist.

I remember they actually called him Nailz on WCW Saturday Night but then he was just the Prisoner at Slamboree against Sting the following day.


Think he was the Convict later, including at that WWN taping for Crockett.

Right before Survivor Series '92, they aired an angle to set up a Nailz vs. Undertaker feud since they were finishing up their respective feuds with Big Bossman and Kamala at the PPV. Nailz won a squash and was inexplicably still ranting and raving in the ring when the music started for Undertaker to walk in for his own squash, leading to a stare down with them getting separated before they could come to blows. However, just as the feud was getting going at the house shows, Kevin Wacholz decided the best way to get across to Vince that he was angry over his paycheck was to start choking him. Taker wound up facing Papa Shango and The Berzerker as subs on the road.

They had some “gruesome” photos in the WWF magazine from this attack

It wasn't inexplicable really. Naillz had called out the Boss Man and wouldn't leave until he came out. That's when UT came down for his own match.
