HHH vs Punk at NOC now.
I prefer that to Nash.

I missed Raw due to having no power, but reading the report it seemed like a decent show. I'm gonna miss the live Smackdown tonight probably too! DAMNIT!
I like the idea of scrapping the Brand Extension. Might make me start watching Smackdown again.
Trips vs Punk at NOC seems like a HUGE match for a secondary PPV. I see Nash running in and costing someone the match, either Punk or Trips. No way there is a clean finish to this match.
Greg, your thoughts about the New Age Outlaws was on my mind the other day, and I almost included them in my Mania Legends vs Stars of today Card, but I just didn't know who they would face? I don't see Kofi and Borne together all the way to Mania, and there aren't any real established teams, so I just didn't know what match to put them in.

Jericho has no desire to come back to wrestling right now.
Edge is a bad fall from dying or being paralyzed.
Austin may work a match but I wouldn't count on it.
Let's not go too far with the old guys all coming back...This isn't WCW or TNA although at least guys like Jericho, Austin and The Rock aren't cripples.
So many ways the Nash thing could go. The "surprise" would be that Nash is actually on the side of Punk when all is said and done.
In fact, that is how I expect this to all go down. They are playing up the HHH/Nash are good friends thing so much that it leads you to believe that the outcome is HHH and Nash screwing Punk....but there is no title at stake and this isn't a big PPV, so why would you do that? What good does it do to screw Punk at NOC in a non title match?
The only thing that makes sense is that Nash turns on HHH, joins Punk and they create some kind of a faction.

I can't see this being a real big match between Punk and HHH. I would love to see Punk fight all the corporate suits and wreak havoc and go into a big match with HHH at Wrestlemania, and I think thats what we will end up seeing.
Theres a few ways this can go:
1. The Match happens and this feud is over.
2. HHH gets hit with a car or jumped or something and someone steps in for the match.
3. Some incarnation of the fingerpoke of doom happens, where Nash, Punk and HHH align at the PPV. The alignment would be great, but not that way.
4. Nash turns on HHH, Punk wins and a long feud ensues with Punk/Nash/Others vs HHH.
Option 4 is how I see it, and would set up a big time match between HHH and Punk down the road at the Rumble or Mania.

The ONLY problem with the line of thinking that has Punk and Nash aligned is this...Nash cost Punk the title at SummerSlam. What possible reason would Punk have to give up the belt JUST so they could swerve Trips at a later date? It makes NO sense at all....which is exactly why the WWE would be dumb enough to do it.
The only thing I see that makes sense is Del Rio and Nash are aligned, but if that's the case, it puts Punk and Trips AND Cena all on the same side...which would really screw the bad guys!

I am not sure how long his contract is, its a Legends deal, so hes allowed to work for independent shows, but WWE can pull him from any show if they want him on the air.
08-30-2011 03:03 PM #59The latest on Kevin Nash is that he is only back for a short run and not a full-fledged return. Nash is still signed to a WWE Legends deal and able to take indy bookings but must pull out of them if a WWE commitment comes up first. Before he came back, Nash was specifically interested in working with CM Punk.

Really hope that this 'Super Smackdown' goes well so that they will consider this time slot permanently. Apparently this is viewed as a pretty big show and it's success could go a long way in determining what WWE does scheduling wise going forward.
