Well, there actually is quite a difference between how your body functions when you're 22 as opposed to when you're 37! I'm 35 years old, and I can tell you the difference is really quite noticeable, and when I was young I didn't think it would be this bad.
Also, Nash using a "normal sword" wouldn't really measure up to the total awesome badassness of the Grosser Fluss. There clearly can't even be a comparison.
As far as his other exploits you mention:
"He helped in Greenhill with a few others": This is pretty much plot based and doesn't have much to do with his combat prowess. Nothing here really shows how he's a "great fighter." It only shows him being a capable tactician.
"slayed a stray dragon with Humphrey, Futch, and Sheena": Yep, he fought against a dragon with three other people, including a tank of a man and a dragon knight who knows a lot about dragons and how to kill them. You also can't discount Sheena who gets good blood from his swordmaster father and magic-using mom. What does Nash do here that makes him sound like a "great fighter" as you say?
"killed a vampire with Seirra,": this was mostly done by Sierra though. Nash really wasn't able to do anything against Rean. All he did was allow Sierra to suck his blood so she had enough strength to destroy Rean. Again, nothing here shows Nash is a "great fighter."
"beat Seed and Culgan in a duel": First of all, a "duel" is fought between two people. Not three or four, but two. Second, he didn't beat Seed and Culgan in that fight. He merely wounded Seed, and was defeated by Culgan. He was able to get out of that tangle because his sword was coated with poison, which would have led to Seed's certain death. Nash bargained with Culgan to let him go in exchange of an antidote. Again, doesn't show how Nash is a "great fighter."
So, now then, it would seem as if your premise is based on exaggeration and / or conjecture that lacks factual support. What this means is your opinion loses much of any value, so I would hope you can provide better backing for your supposition.
