Hall and Nash take part in a special pre-event meet and greet as part of Capitol's partnership with Wrestling For Innocence, an organization dedicated to help those who are wrongfully imprisoned.
Hall and Nash come to Nashville not only to sign autographs and meet the amazing fans of Music City, but also to raise awareness for Adam Braseel, who was wrongfully convicted of murder in 2006.
The two outsiders, who changed the wrestling business 23 years ago, join current Bellator heavyweight and former world champion Jake Hager, who will not only be signing autographs, but will also competing for the first time inside a Capitol Wrestling ring.

In 1994, Nash (as Diesel) won all three titles comprising the WWF Triple Crown, and at that year's Slammy Awards won the MVP (now Superstar of the Year), and—with Shawn Michaels—Best Tag Team (now Tag Team of the Year) awards.
Between WWE, WCW, and TNA, Nash has won a total of 21 championships, including being a six-time world champion (a five-time WCW World Heavyweight Champion and one-time WWF Champion), and a 12-time tag team champion between the three promotions. Although he held the WWF Championship only once, Nash is the longest-reigning titleholder of the 1990s, with a 358-day run. During his time in WCW, Nash also became the first wrestler to defeat Goldberg and in the process ended his undefeated streak of 173–0 at Starrcade 1998.
Nash was a member of The Kliq, a group that included Shawn Michaels, Triple H, Scott Hall, and Sean Waltman. He is one of the three founding members of the New World Order (nWo), along with Hulk Hogan and Scott Hall. Nash will be inducted into the 2015 WWE Hall of Fame.

Hager attended the University of Oklahoma as a two-sport athlete, participating in both football and wrestling. He switched to wrestling full-time in his sophomore year, and in 2006, set the record for most pins in a season with 30 as an All-American. Following a try-out, Hager signed a WWE contract in mid-2006. He made his debut for the WWE developmental territory Deep South Wrestling in September, and was moved to the Ohio Valley Wrestling territory in January 2007. A few months later, Hager debuted for Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW), where he was the final FCW Southern Heavyweight Champion and the inaugural FCW Florida Heavyweight Champion.
In late 2008, he debuted for the ECW brand under the name Jack Swagger, and in January 2009, he won his first world championship, the ECW Championship. In 2010, while a member of the Raw brand, he won the Money in the Bank ladder match at WrestleMania XXVI, and two days later at the April 2 SmackDown taping, he cashed in that opportunity and defeated Chris Jericho to become the World Heavyweight Champion. He held the championship until June 2010. In January 2012, Swagger won the WWE United States Championship for the first time.
