Kevin Nash's WWE Legends Deal

As most of you know Kevin Nash has been under a WWE Legends deal for some time.  This happened around the time of the 2011 Royal Rumble as Diesel was one of the surprise competitors.  According to this note on Lords of Pain, Nash is actually under a different type of deal than most who sign them.
Kevin Nash is reportedly is signed to a different WWE Legends deal than everyone else. Usually the Legends deals are that you make a percentage of the revenue your name and likeness generate, and they pay you a small amount of per year as a retainer of sorts. Nash is receiving a significant amount of money and as you know, right now is doing very little work for the company. Nash is said to be frustrated because he thought the reaction he got at the Royal Rumble would lead to something else on TV.
 There was a lot of speculation at the Rumble that they may be setting up Big Show/Diesel as a special attraction match at WrestleMania 27.  That did not come to pass as Nash did not appear and Big Show was involved in an 8-man tag against the Corre.

On the subject of Nash I think he's worth a follow on Twitter.  He can be found at @RealKevinNash.  For instance here are his thoughts on Sunday's MitB.
MITB better than any mma ppv I've watched. Punk continues to gain my respect and Jay is the FUCKIN man,WWE at it's best
 For all his shortcomings, I think Nash has a sharp wrestling mind.  I would love to hear that he is being used more effectively by WWE whether on-screen or behind the scenes at some point in the future.
