Monday’s Raw Super Show felt more like an episode of TNA Impact Wrestling because of its irrational conclusion to what was promised to be an exciting storyline. As revealed in the non-existent footage from Triple H’s hidden office cameras, Kevin Nash texted himself from HHH’s phone to stick the winner at SummerSlam.
As The Miz would say, really? Really? Really…?
If Kevin Nash attacked CM Punk at SummerSlam on his own accord, why was the text message necessary? What was Nash trying to accomplish? Was Triple H supposed to play along, or believe that he himself sent the message? Frankly, it doesn’t make sense.
Nash had enough influence being one of Triple H’s closest friends to earn a spot on the roster without taking such an underhanded approach. For all his wrong doings, and his constant undermining of Triple H’s ability to run WWE, Kevin Nash was fired live on Raw Monday night.
Yet don’t expect this to be the last time that Kevin Nash graces us with his unwanted presence. Shortly after being fired, Kevin Nash was met with WWE’s Executive Vice President for Talent Relations John Laurinaitis, and the two drove off together. Laurinaitis was the man who hired Kevin Nash in the first place, without Triple H’s consent. What will Johnny Ace have in store for Vinnie Vegas?
Many people applauded Triple H’s decision to fire Nash, including his detractors CM Punk and Michael Cole. But Hunter’s latest decision to add a no-disqualification stipulation to his match with CM Punk at Night of Champions is coming off as unprofessional. Although he admits that this match is no longer about business, it’s personal, Triple H’s emotions landed himself in hot water when he immediately accepted Punk’s added stipulation: If Triple H loses, he must resign as WWE’s Chief Operating Officer.
In a no-DQ bout, Kevin Nash can easily return to stick Triple H with a Jackknife Powerbomb costing him the C.O.O. position, which John Laurinaitis is most likely after. Or CM Punk can cleanly cost Triple H his job. Then again, Triple H firing Nash could have all been a ruse to catch Punk off guard for when Nash finally does get his hands on him, followed by Triple H firing CM Punk.
