WWE promised us answers: Who sent Kevin Nash the text message to stiff CM Punk? Yet instead gave us more questions: Did somebody want Alberto Del Rio as the WWE Champion? Is John Laurinaitis conspiring against Triple H? Is there someone pulling the strings to keep CM Punk away from the WWE Championship?
The truth is… there is a conspiracy in the WWE. Just not ones that involve either The Miz or R-Truth.
Fet up with WWE’s politics, The Miz and R-Truth have finally formed an alliance. The two WWE Superstars have been absent from the main event scene since late June, having since been regulated to multi-person matches. Although The Miz and R-Truth could easily dominate the Tag Team division, their alliance is about forcing their way back into the World Title picture.
Another alliance that has taken the WWE by storm is Kofi Kingston and Evan Bourne who were crowned the new WWE Tag Team champions after defeating former champions Michael McGillicutty and David Otunga. Talks of a revival in the Tag Team division are certainly headed in the right direction now that the high-flying duo of Kingston and Bourne are representing the division.
This marked Evan Bourne’s first title in the WWE.
Triple H, WWE’s COO, was probably behind the broadcast announcers speaking ill of McGillicutty and Otunga, calling them “The Bland leading The Bland.” But he still claims that he did not send Kevin Nash the text message to stiff anyone.
As for the confrontation between Nash and Punk from last week, Triple H told Nash that he could not enter a physical confrontation with anyone because he was not employed by the WWE. Yet that didn’t stop Nash from landing a vicious forearm to Punk before being lead out of the arena by Triple H.
Triple H, if it’s just for the cameras or not, sincerely doesn’t appear to have any dealings with Kevin Nash as it pertains to the SummerSlam incident. But does John Laurinaitis?
Last week Laurinaitis invited Kevin Nash back to his office. (Insert hilariously funny Nash-Laurinaitis after hours scenario here.) And this week Laurinaitis informed Triple H that Kevin Nash was in a car accident and sent to the nearest hospital. With Canada supplying free universal health care… there was no need for Triple H to leave Raw in the hands of Laurinaitis to go tend to his buddy Nash.
It was all a ruse.
At the end of an incredible main event between CM Punk and John Cena for the right to challenge Alberto Del Rio for the WWE championship at Night of Champions, Kevin Nash shouted out Punk’s name and proceeded to make his way down to the ring. Yes, fans of AMC’s Breaking Bad were all well aware of what had just happened. Just like when Walter White had Saul deal with Hank Schrader with a phony emergency phone call notifying Schrader that his wife, Marie, was in a car crash and air lifted to the nearest hospital, Triple H would later find out that Kevin Nash was perfectly fine. Laurinaitis’ ruse cost Punk his championship match at Night of Champions.
Which begs the question, is someone within the WWE seriously against CM Punk being the face of the company? Could Stephanie McMahon really have it out for Punk, or could it be Mr. McMahon out for revenge for the stunt Punk pulled back at Money in the Bank? Sounds like the conspiracies keep racking up.
