"Tristen recently started working on Kevin's new podcast and the two enjoyed their time together.

"The Nash family asks if you could please respect their privacy during this time.”

Tristen was the singer in a band called The Builders.

Tributes were paid to him online, reports The Sun, with ex-WWE wrestler Ryback saying: "Sending as much love as possible to Kevin Nash and family. I'm sorry."

Wrestling coach Donny Cage tweeted: "Thoughts go out to Kevin Nash and his family. No father should have to bury their son. Heartbreaking."

And close friend and WWE legend Sean Waltman, also known as X-Pac, added: "My heart is in a million pieces thinking about what one of my best friends in life is going through. I love you for life, Kev.”

The news comes just months after five-times world champion Kevin lost his best friend Scott Hall.

Scott, who died from post-surgery complications aged 63, was known to many wrestling fans as bad guy Razor Ramon.

Meanwhile, earlier this year, 63-year-old Kevin revealed a dramatic career change when launched his own weed company – named after his famous finisher, Jackknife.

His strain is described as having a citrus, orange and berry flavour, with added ice cream.

He said: “Jackknife Power Bomb, my finishing manoeuvre, is fitting for my strain partnership as I feel it accurately represents the strength and potency of the flower. When you’re being Jackknifed, you’re not in control over the situation.

“Turning my pain into passion, I have become very familiar with cannabis and the one thing I find to be most important is quality … I am excited to hear what fans think when they try it.”
