Bella Twins Trash WWE Over WWE Divas Article Posted by Dave Mitchell on 09/04/2011 at 03:06 PM
The Bella twins are PISSED over an article posted on the WWE website about Beth Phoenix and Natalya Neidhart being the "salvation" to a Divas division overrun by models and bimbos. The article, which can be read here in its entirety, mentioned the Bella twins by name as WWE divas who 'diva purists' can't believe are being featured on television over more talented in ring performers. The Bellas wrote on Twitter that they woke up to the "embarrassing" article and wanted to share their thoughts with the WWE Universe.
Nikki Bella wrote:
"First off.... Um you want me to slap you with all of my awards and championships I have won? I was a #1 athlete... Which other Diva was?
Secondly, Bri & @RealKellyKelly have been the only entertainment that has happened 2 the Diva's Division & have worked harder than anyone!
Thirdly, I've seen 2 girls the past few weeks try as hard as they can to be "models" while us "models" have busted our butts.....
Oh and good luck with the up and coming Divas.... Sure you'll make a lot of money with them.... Um actually NOT!
Lastly, @RealKellyKelly & Us are better than anyone in the past so Katie Raymond check your self and come read this article to my face! NB"
Brie Bella wrote:
"Wow, I just woke up to the craziness! The words spoken by Katie are laughable, but I'm a women who will stand for what I believe in...so...
I know what I've given to the fans and that's all what matters. WWE might think your a bunch of puppets that are persuaded by their words..
I know how you all feel :) good and bad, I love it! I mean if WWE cared about Divas why do we have such little time on tv?
Why were divas such as Mickey James, Melina and Gail Kim released. Why aren't wrestlers like Sara Del Ray hired? All amazing!.......
Kelly Kelly and myself have worked to hard to have an unknown, untalented writer say the things she did. Katie (whoever) Suck it! Love Brie"
Former WWE diva Melina responded to the Bellas' rant -
"You know I love you but everyone needs to seriously calm down and think before tweeting. This is not worth it."
The Bellas responded to Melina:
"@RealMelina you know that wasn't towards you girl :) I know you know that"
Melina replied once again with the following:
"Everyone, these are all good girls. All of them. Yes everyone's experience level varies but I'm damn proud to step into the ring with them.
Wrestling is not easy on so many levels. It's not only physical grueling but mentally & emotionally. Against ALL odds you have to overcome.
Through the hardest of times you have to pretend ur ok, pick yourself up & think about others because we are role models. Even when we hurt.
2live our life in wrestling is not easy. Even though it looks like it is... If it does that means we r THAT good. but it isn't. Far from it.
I love wrestling. No matter what promotion... This is art. This is an extension of me. I may not be in the WWE but my heart is still there.
I'm going 2do what I love & Friggin go all out at @WSUWrestling. I'm so excited about it. U have no idea how much I miss being in the ring."
The Bella Twins finished off by saying:
"Well today has been fun so far haha wow... off to Columbus, OH.... Wonderin' what's in store for the Divas... Uh oh! Besos! Nikki #divas"
Stinkfaces. Booty poppin'. If you're a purist about a woman's place inside the WWE ring, you might be wondering what Fabulous Moolah is thinking looking down on the Divas division. Would the iconic figure chalk up the current flux of the division on changing times, or would she say, "Someone needs to save this"?
Beth Phoenix and Natalya, the "Divas of Doom," think so. However, are The Glamazon and third-generation Diva just the two women to call "saviors"?
First, the sly and athletic Brie Bella wins the Divas Championship using underhanded tactics. Diva purists weren't happy. Then, Kelly Kelly - who has improved markedly inside the ring - netted the butterfly title. Diva purists started pointing fingers and lashing out. This can't be happening. Not in a division that has seen the likes of Moolah, Trish Stratus, Hall of Famer Wendi Richter, Lita and Melina bear the Women's Title. On social media, the WWE Universe joined the fight, asking: How are these "model" Divas getting their names etched in the history books? Do only "pretty faces," as according to Beth Phoenix and Natalya, matter?
The WWE Universe took to Twitter to express their dismay and praise the terror-filling twosome, even making The Divas of Doom a worldwide trending topic during SuperSmackDown Tuesday night.
And so in came these sisters of destruction, carrying holy water and a torch. One was destined to dominate the ring, the other was born to an impressive bloodline. Both have worked tirelessly on their craft. This isn't to say the other Divas haven't worked tirelessly- night in and night out they put their bodies on the line for the WWE Universe's entertainment, but Beth and Natalya's livelihood isn't on the posters or the calendars. Their livelihood is made from breaking bones and taking names. That doesn't necessarily make them saviors, but it certainly gives them purpose.
It might be easy to constantly search or compare the current crop of Divas to Lita and Trish, though an understanding must be made: There will never be another Trish Stratus or Lita. Any comparisons made to them are unfair. Divas Champion Kelly Kelly has worked endlessy for 5 years, becoming one of the most popular Divas, and has taken on all who have stood in her way. The Bellas have taught the WWE Universe with athleticism and determination what a little "Twin Magic" can do. But the line doesn't end there. With talented new Divas like A.J. impressing in their squared-circle prowess and not-quite-Divas-yet like Maxine and the exciting Naomi waiting in the wings, the future looks bright for the Divas division. But that doesn't mean the Divas division's time isn't now.
So does the Divas division need to be saved? Not just yet. But Beth Phoenix and Natalya are certainly doing their share to rejuvenate it.
Beth Phoenix says she and Natalya are out to change the way the fans see the WWE Divas division. She wrote on Twitter:
"Its not the Divas Division that needs saving, but the WWE Universe. Myself and @NatbyNature are on a mission to make you change your minds.. As long as I can remember I have worked my butt off and been underappreciated while the crowd adores @RealKellyKelly and @EveMarieTorres... I am tired of looking and being the best and being passed over time and time again. Im done asking for approval. And just getting started. Proving my point. #DivasofDoom. Most of all, the WWE Universe WILL listen. Because We will MAKE YOU. #DivasofDoom."
- Shots were fired in the parking lot last night after the show in Trenton. There was talk among the fans that John Cena, Alberto Del Rio and Ricardo Rodriguez had to be rushed back in the building for their safety. CM Punk and Ricardo both wrote about it on their Twitter.

SuperSmackDown results: Mark Henry crashes the cage By: Mitch Passero September 3, 2011 Tags: SuperSmackDown: August 30, 2011 WICHITA, Kan. – On a special live SuperSmackDown featuring Superstars from both Raw and SmackDown, elation went to pain for World Heavyweight Champion Randy Orton when Mark Henry came calling.
World Heavyweight Champion Randy Orton def. Christian in a Steel Cage Match (PHOTOS | WATCH) With his World Heavyweight Championship on the line, Randy Orton fought tooth-and-nail with a hard-charging and determined Christian. As both Superstars battled atop the cage then the top rope, the champion dropped Christian with a blistering RKO for the win. But before Orton could relish in his win, No. 1 contender Mark Henry rushed to the cage.
The most dangerous man in WWE then went to work dismantling The Viper by bashing him skull-first into the steel cage, clotheslining him then finally finishing him off with a brutal World’s Strongest Slam. With WWE’s Apex Predator at his feet, Henry hoisted his title high. Was the night a sign of things to come with both Superstars on an imminent collision course? Sheamus def. The Great Khali by Disqualification (PHOTOS | WATCH) When Jinder Mahal attacked Sheamus from behind, The Celtic Warrior picked up an immediate win over The Great Khali by disqualification. But afterward, Sheamus felt the vicious effects of The Khali Chop, followed by a painful assault by Mahal outside the ring. But the Irish Superstar had the last laugh when he absolutely demolished Mahal with the Celtic Cross in the ring.
Kevin Nash dropped COO Triple H to the canvas (PHOTOS) After exchanging emotional and heated words, it looked like CM Punk and Triple H might come to blows before their Night of Champions match. But before things came to a head, Kevin Nash charged to the ring. With Punk seething, the COO kept him at bay. But when Triple H lost control, Punk and Nash collided, with Punk getting a massive boot to the face. Then in a stunning move, Nash dropped Triple H to the canvas with a demonstrative show of force. The contract chaos begs the question: Has Triple H lost complete control? After the mayhem, Nash refused comment to Matt Striker. Beth Phoenix & Natalya def. Divas Champion Kelly Kelly & Alicia Fox (PHOTOS | WATCH) In a dominating display the "Divas of Doom" took care of business against Kelly Kelly and Alicia Fox when The Glamazon dispatched of Fox with a debilitating Glam Slam.
Sin Cara def. Daniel Bryan (PHOTOS | WATCH) The second match of the night featured a contest between two of WWE’s most athletic Superstars. Although both Superstars pushed themselves to the limit, it was a quick combination of moves from the ropes that spelled victory for Sin Cara. In an apparent gesture of good sportsmanship, Sin Cara shook Byran’s hand while he was on his knees. But then in an ugly display, the international sensation blasted Bryan with a kick to the head.
Mark Henry predicted pain When Mark Henry was asked by Matt Striker about facing the winner of the night’s Steel Cage Match at Night of Champions, he said “I don’t care who wins … either way, they'll be a candidate for the 'Hall of Pain.'" John Cena def. Wade Barrett (PHOTOS | WATCH) With his sights set on WWE Champion Alberto Del Rio at Night of Champions, John Cena made quick work of Wade Barrett, defeating him with an Attitude Adjustment in the night's first match. John Cena kicked off SuperSmackDown (PHOTOS) After starting his career on SmackDown, John Cena came to the ring at the historic start of a live SuperSmackDown and talked about hurting WWE Champion Alberto Del Rio. But Ricardo Rodriguez informed Cena he’d have to wait until Night of Champions for the honor of being in the ring with him. Putting a punctuation mark on Rodriguez’s statements, Cena dropped him to the canvas. Next, Wade Barrett emerged to talk smack about his upcoming match with Cena. But, the Cenation leader got in the last word: “Get this through your head … you have made my life miserable and I owe you some payback."

Ezekiel Jackson defeated Heath Slater Brodus Clay defeated Brandon James Zack Ryder defeated Tyson Kidd John Morrison defeated R-Truth
Morrison Vs. R-Truth is plugged right off the top. (Why does this feud continue to be buried?)
Ezekiel Jackson makes his way to the ring.
Heath Slater outlandishly makes his way to the ring to what appears to be another new entrance theme. It sounds like a country song more than a rock song.
Ezekiel Jackson Vs. Heath Slater
Lock up. Smart move by Slater, as Jackson's power game clearly is better and he out weights Slater by over 100 lbs. Slater fakes another lock-up and sneaks around for a quick waist lock and a cheap shot to the back of Jackson.
Jackson goes for Slater's neck but Slater squirms out. Taking to the ropes now, Slater maneuvers out of a Powerslam attempt with a shot to the gut of Jackson. A few cheap shots and off the ropes goes Slater. He is met with a clothesline.
Two count for Jackson, who ensues in a beat down on Heath. He eventually brings him into the corner and Irish whips him to the other. Slater capitalizes on Jackson's confidence by grabbing Jackson's arm and slamming him to the mat. Heath continues to target Zeke's arm with kicks, knees, Dragonscrews, inverted submission holds, etc.
Zeke's power continues to win over with a hip toss. He connected with a one arm Powerslam. Zeke hits another Irish whip on Slater. Slater finds himself up on the top rope, not in an offensive position, but Zeke's brute force from his Clothesline sends him up to the high risk district. Zeke shows his dominance by keeping his arm across Slater's neck with a big grin on his face.
Slater eventually gets down and Zeke tries to set up for his finisher. Another quick switch waist lock and Slater has backed Zeke into the corner, pounding on him with as much awkward force as the One-Man Southern Rock Band (meh) can muster. Gotta give him credit for staying on Zeke here.
Slater misses a forearm smash as Jackson dashes out of the corner. Slater finds himself in the Torture Rack.
Winner: Ezekiel Jackson by submission.

Brodus Clay makes his way to the ring with new gear. No longer are the days of a black singlet, but a black singlet with a RED OUTLINE AND "BC" written on the left pec! How exciting.
The Wichita local, Brandon James, is already in the ring awaiting his demise. Matt Striker follows by pointing out his cauliflower ears which apparently are evidence of his All-American days. Watch out, Jack Swagger!
Brodus Clay Vs. Brandon James
Brandon finds himself on his nose after a lock-up. Brodus sends him to the ropes and hits a headbutt with his mohawk. He drops an elbow and follows it up with a Falling Powerslam.
Clay hits a corner splash and takes to the ropes for the Fall of Humanity - a running crossbody.
The three count and the bell signals probably the shortest Brodus Clay match to date.
Winner: Brodus Clay by pinfall.

Tyson Kidd makes his way to the ring. Should be a good match.
Zack Ryder Vs. Tyson Kidd
Zack wins out in the lock up immediately with an Arm Drag on Kidd. He throws up the LI as the crowd chants, "Let's Go, Ryder!"
Tyson doesn't look impressed. Another lock up finds Tyson pushing Ryder into the corner. Tyson SLAPS the taste out of Ryder's mouth. This only infuriates Ryder who reverses their positions and commences mudhole stomping on Kidd. He follows up with the Broski Boot. WWWYKI!
Tyson now, outside of the ring, plays a little bait and switch and Ryder. Ryder takes a risk and goes for a flying crossbody. He finds himself crashing to the floor as Kidd jumps back into the ring. Ryder gets to his feet and is met with a slingshot dropkick.
Tyson targets Ryders head and neck area with elbows and shots to the head. Tyson snapmares Ryder down and hits a shot to the back, now back inside of the ring. Tyson locks in a chinlock.
Ryder fights out of it and sends Tyson to the ropes. Kidd holds onto the ropes and avoids a Dropkick. He tries to lock in the Sharpshooter but fails. Both go down with a Double Clothesline.
Ryder begins his assault with running forearm smashes. Tyson avoids Ryder by flipping out of the corner position. He hits a shot to the gut and heads for the ropes. Ryder reverses with a Sit-Out Powerbomb. 1...2...
Kickout by Tyson. "Are you serious, bro?" Ryder throws up the LI and goes for the Rough Ryder. Ryder finds himself landing on his butt. Tyson capitalizes with a Dropkick. Two count.
Ryder reverses an attempt, pushing Kidd out of the corner. All it takes is one second for the ROUGH RYDER.
Winner: Zack Ryder by pinfall.
Ryder films himself with the kid again reminding us to "Take care, spike your hair!"

Recap of HHH/Nash/Punk Storyline.

JoMo is already in the ring as we come back from the break.
R-Truth comes out to monster heat from the audience. Matthews reminds us of the history between these two, that they are former Tag Team Champions.
John Morrison Vs. R-Truth
The two let the crowd get amped before locking up. JoMo is backed into the corner. The Ref counts to four, Morrison attempts to keep a headlock locked in as he is sent to the ropes. He hits a shoulder block and jumps right back on the headlock. R-Truth tries to get out and is Snapmared right back to the mat.
A "Little Jimmy" chant ensues as R-Truth fights out of a hammer lock. He hits a shoulder block of his own, the two reverse and counter a few runs on the ropes before JoMo hits a clothesline for a two count.
Truth Irish whips JoMo into the corner hard enough. Morrison holds his neck. R-Truth hits a huge shot for a two count. He follows it up with some pound and ground to more heat from the big and little Jimmy's.
Truth hits a shot to the gut and another to the back of the neck of Morrison for another two count.
Morrison manages to find enough time to get to his feet. He hits a Dropkick and Clotheslines Truth out of the ring. As Truth recovers, JoMo sneaks out and hides in wait. Truth gets to his feet and manages to duck the Parkour Master's corkscrew off of the steel steps. JoMo lands on his feet and ducks Truth's clothesline. He takes to the steps again and kicks the conspiracy theorist right in the jaw!
Back in the ring, JoMo acquires a two count. R-Truth reverses a suplex attempt and goes for a roll-up for a two count. Morrison slams Truth's head to the mat. He then nails his trademark flashy leg drop. Scott Stanford goes on to say that Morrison informed him he does not yet feel 100% following his neck surgery, but that he is "almost there."
Another Irish Whip finds R-Truth holding onto the ropes and sneaking out the ring. He baits JoMo again by the barricade, as JoMo finds himself slammed face first into the padded steel.
SuperSmackDown! promo. It re-airs Friday night.
As we return, R-Truth has Morrison in a sleeper hold in the ring. Morrison fights out with a Jawbreaker and spears Truth into the corner. He pummels R in the corner. He attempts to capitalize with a move, but is caught with a boot. Truth beats down JoMo.
John Morrison is hoisted up by Truth and smashes face first into the mat with what K-Kwik (wait, what?) calls the Truth Conviction. (What Wikipedia calls a Sit-out Suplex Slam, a Sitout Gordbuster and an Inverted Falcon Arrow all in the same article.)
Back in the sleeper, R-Truth hits Morrison point blank in the face a few times. Come on, Ref! The crowd is solidly behind Morrison who tries to fight out, but finds himself slammed on his face. Truth pulls Morrison to his feet after tantalizing the crowd. Morrison hits a stiff kick to the side of Truth's head.
Johnny Nitro (wait, what?) begins his onslaught of Clotheslines and flying kicks. Morrison then locks Truth in and nails a standing moonsault side slam. 1...2...
Kickout by Truth. Morrison stands above R-Truth. He goes for a running knee, Truth ducks it and gets to his feet only to be hit with a Moonlight Drive, Morrison's signature Corkscrew Neckbreaker. Morrison drags Truth to the corner to set up for his finisher.
Truth begins to roll away and JoMo is caught by Truth with his Suplex-Stunner. 1...2...
Kickout. Morrison grimaces, favoring his neck. Morrison is placed on the top rope, facing the audience. Truth comes up behind him but is elbowed off by JoMo. Without standing, JoMo hits the Starship Pain!
JoMo's Split-Legged Corkscrew Moonsault however meets R-Truth's knees! R-Truth then hits the Little Jimmy, a Jumping Reverse STO for the 3-count!
Winner: R-Truth by pinfall.
R-Truth shouts at unknown voices and accuses Little Jimmys and Big Jimmys of all kinds of things, but bottom line is... JoMo got GOT!
Word going around backstage is that Kevin Nash has a medical issue that is keeping him off Night of Champions and it will be cleared up, most likely, within a few weeks. While sources report that WWE won't have Nash wrestling, another believes Nash could be wrestling at the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view in October.
Fifteen years ago, Kevin Nash rocked the world by assembling one of the most influential factions in sports entertainment history—the New World Order. More than a decade later, is WWE on the brink of a new incarnation of the black and white?
The New World Order’s beginnings were rooted in confusion and conspiracy involving Kevin Nash. The current state of WWE is no different. The mystery of who sent Nash the text message at SummerSlam, directing him to take out the WWE Champion after the main event, has created paranoia amongst the WWE Universe and WWE Superstars. The atmosphere of deception, and the inconsistent stories being told by Nash, Triple H and Mr. John Laurinaitis, have led to widespread speculation that something larger is brewing. When the nWo first formed, that same sense of distrust allowed its rise to power. (HISTORY OF THE NWO | CLASSIC PHOTOS)
It’s no secret that Nash and Triple H are close friends; both individuals have acknowledged their tight knit locker room group known as “The Kliq,” also including Shawn Michaels, Sean Waltman (X-Pac) and Scott Hall. When The Outsiders left WWE in 1996, separating The Kliq, Hall and Nash would eventually form The New World Order in WCW, while Shawn Michaels and Triple H formed D-Generation X in WWE. There was even a period of brief crossover between the two supergroups – Waltman was a member of both during their heydays and, during the nWo’s WWE resurgence in 2002, Michaels joined Kevin Nash, and the two attempted to recruit Triple H. Is it possible that The Game and Nash are now bringing The Kliq and the nWo full circle?
When the original nWo formed in WCW, it started with three Superstars before expanding its ranks and grew exponentially in numbers. If the nWo reformed today, who would populate its ranks? There are a number of WWE Superstars who would fit in perfectly with the group’s agenda.
TNA Wrestler Addresses Rumors That He Was Headed To WWE

Former TNA Wrestler Matt Hardy posted a new message on his twitter page regarding last night's cryptic video.
The YouTube Video was not in any way a suicide note.. No words such as death, suicide, kill, heaven or hell were included-I wanted to see people's optimism or pessimism towards my words. It's pretty clear to me what their reaction was, and I needed one last attention grabber to let the World know that Matt Hardy has re-found his true self. After the events of the last couple of weeks, even though I've made some terrible mistakes, I have come to a revelation in my life. I realized that since the "MATTHEW" videos, with the damage inflicted on my body over the last 15 years and, more importantly, how I was coping with the severe pain, "Matt Hardy" had lost his way. I went from being the guy who wanted to change the world, entertain and inspire people to being someone who was more concerned about shock value and making the world unravel my cryptic messages and videos.
Tonight's video at http://bit.ly/dvfwOb represented the end of the "New" Matt "MATTHEW" Hardy, as I've come full circle back to the "Old" Matt Hardy. They say what doesn't kill you makes you stronger, and I believe that statement defined my last two weeks. Regardless of if its in a wrestling ring or not, I WILL change the World, make it a better place, and inspire and motivate others to do the same. I am of sane mind, completely clean of any and all crutches, and feel better then I have in years. You'll be surprised at my stories from the last two weeks, as well as my future plans and aspirations.. More videos will follow on http://www.youtube.com/MATTHARDYBRAND to explain my revelation and reveal my future plans. I apologize to anyone who was taken off guard or frightened by my final, cryptic YouTube entry. I want to reassure everyone that I am doing great right now. Stay tuned, as I'll be upgrading and launching several new ventures in the days to come. Be well all, I wish you all the best.
He followed that up with yet another cryptic video on his youtube channel.
Matt Hardy uploaded what appears to be an apparent suicide video note on his Youtube account. The video reads: "Goodbye world... My time here is almost complete... I only have a few hours and minutes... I loved you all... Regardless of how you felt about me... I'll miss you all... September 23, 1974-August 31,2011"
Obviously this is very troubling, and I encourage anyone with Hardy's information to get in touch with him immediately or call the cops ASAP. He also wrote "Goodbye" on his Twitter and posted a link to the video, which is below.
UPDATE: THIS HAS BEEN CONFIRMED AS A HOAX. An apparent suicide note Matt Hardy released this evening via YouTube has been confirmed as a hoax.
Jeff Hardy's wife, Beth Britt, is steamed with Matt's latest attempt 'to work the Internet' as police showed up to her North Carolina residence this evening on a suicide call.
She angrily wrote on her Twitter account, "When the cops show up to our house at 11 pm, for a "suicide call" the fucking joke is over @MATTHARDYBRAND. Stop trying to work the Internet."
A fan wrote to Britt, "Who the hell calls 911 and sends them to the wrong f'n house?" She responded, "Apparently someone that believed the stupid video."
She then wrote, "I guess you got what you wanted @MATTHARDYBRAND. Everyone is talking about you, again. But it's not in a good way."
Apparently Hardy feels suicide is a joking matter. Again, we appreciate all your concerns and calls regarding the video and tweets. Something like that needs to be taken seriously. It's better to at least check and be safe rather than have it be too late.
Instead of the twenty-sixth week of NXT Redemption, it's time for the special "NXT Graduates" event! The special opening titles roll, showing rookies from all seasons of NXT. Matt Striker is on the PPV pre-show stage and says tonight we're taking a look at the successful rookies on NXT. We get a short look at rookies such as Justin Gabriel, Brodus Clay, and Daniel Bryan.
-The first rookie we look at is Wade Barrett, the season one winner of NXT. There's a recap of last Friday's Smackdown, in which Barrett cut a promo on how he's shaken the foundation of WWE. He sees fighting a local competitor as a personal insult and refuses to fight him. Barrett walks out of the ring and backstage.
-A Brodus Clay promo airs, taking sound bytes from his promo after being eliminated in the NXT Season 4 finale. It was an amazing promo, totally worth checking out if you haven't seen it.
-We get a recap of NXT Season 3, the all-Diva season of NXT. We are reminded of the wedding between Aksana and Goldust. The next rookie we take a look at is AJ. A clip of AJ & Kelly Kelly vs. Natalya & Alicia Fox from Smackdown two weeks ago is shown.
-Natalya is in control for most of the clip, until AJ hits an impressive leg scissors takedown. Natalya quickly takes control again and tags in Alicia Fox. Alicia slams AJ's head against the mat and doesn't allow AJ to get a tag to Kelly, instead dragging her away and tagging in Natalya. The two hit a double suplex and Natalya slaps AJ in the face. Alicia gets tagged back in and chokes AJ in the corner with her foot. AJ quickly fights out of the corner and gets the hot tag to Kelly Kelly, who takes control with a hurricanrana on Alicia. A bulldog and stinkface from Kelly Kelly followed by a roll-up which Natalya breaks up. Kelly then hits her finisher for the win. For a package promoting AJ's success, this may not have been the best choice, since most of it was her getting beaten down.
-NXT Season 1 contestant Justin Gabriel is highlighted next. News footage from South Africa shows how popular Gabriel is in his homeland. Gabriel says he hadn't been home in 3 years before WWE went to South Africa recently. Back to Matt Striker, who says that his sister called him 8 times back during the first season asking who "that gorgeous South African was." Matt then puts over Gabriel's 450 Splash.
-After that, clips from Gabriel's match against Tyson Kidd from two weeks ago is shown. Quick chain wrestling from both men. Tyson takes control, dropping Gabriel face-first into the second turnbuckle, then snapmares him out of the corner. Tyson whips Gabriel and hits a back elbow striker. Tyson then applies a surfboard stretch. Gabriel gets to his feet and hits a big enzuigiri to the back of Tyson's head. A number of kicks to Gabriel's torso knock him back and Gabriel takes him down with a spinning heel kick and a rolling elbow strike. Gabriel hits a springboard splash, which Tyson tries to counter into a half crab, but Gabriel counters into a roll-up attempt and STO of his own. Gabriel goes back to the apron and climbs to the top rope, but Tyson runs up to try a superplex. Gabriel knocks him to the canvas and hits his 450 Splash for the three-count.
-An Alex Riley promo is shown. Riley says there are things he's done that he isn't proud of, while clips of him aiding The Miz are shown. He says that now he's going to earn respect, while clips of him fighting The Miz air, as well as him teaming with Rey Mysterio and John Cena.
-Striker reminds us that Alex Riley isn't the only one who had to put up with The Miz as a pro, as Daniel Bryan had to deal with him on NXT Season 1. Bryan would go on to win the United States Championship from The Miz at Night of Champions last year. The Smackdown Money in the Bank Ladder match from this year is highlighted, as former NXT rookies Heath Slater, Justin Gabriel, Daniel Bryan, and Wade Barrett were in it.
-Daniel Bryan gets a ladder, but Slater & Gabriel baseball slide the ladder onto Bryan. Slabriel start to fight over who gets the ladder into the ring, and Slater eventually gets it set up. Gabriel scales the ring to the top turnbuckle and climbs on the ladder, but Bryan hits a missile dropkick, knocking Gabriel from the ladder. Sheamus takes out both Heath Slater and Daniel Bryan with double-arm strikes. Kane clears the ring, and Barrett comes in, only to be whipped into a ladder by Kane. Slater gets in the ring, but gets a side walk slam for his troubles. Kane to the top rope, but Sin Cara knocks him off the top with a kick. Gabriel tosses Cara out of the ring, and he starts fighting Bryan, who gets whipped. Bryan hits a suicide dive to Barrett on the outside. Gabriel hits a somersault plancha onto Kane on the outside. Slater gets in the ring and hits a corkscrew tope onto the outside. Sin Cara then hits a top rope splash onto Sheamus, who was outside the ring. Cara and Gabriel go at it until Gabriel gets a hurricanrana, sending him out of the ring. Sin Cara hits his top rope flip bottom onto Daniel Bryan. Sin Cara tries to get a ladder into the ring, but Wade Barrett hits a big boot on Cara and sets the ladder up between the ring apron and the announce table. Cara gets into the ring but gets a Brogue kick from an awaiting Sheamus. Sheamus then moves to the apron and hits the infamous powerbomb through the ladder on Sin Cara. Medical personnel are called out to tend to Sin Cara.
-Sheamus scales the ladder in the ring, but Bryan follows him up the ladder. Sheamus gets Bryan on his shoulders and Kane hits a Doomsday Device on Bryan. Sheamus then takes out Kane with a clothesline. Sheamus sets up a ladder between the ladder in the ring and the second turnbuckle. Kane then takes control with a big boot on Sheamus and a chokeslam on Cody Rhodes. Gabriel tries a double axe handle but gets a chokeslam as well. Kane tries to climb the ladder, but Bryan won't let him. Kane drops to the floor and tries for a chokeslam, but Bryan attempts to apply the LeBell Lock on the ladder. Bryan hits a modified tornado DDT and everyone is down. Slater gets into the ring and climbs the ladder, but yet again, Bryan follows him up the ladder. They both try to climb but Slater hits his Sweetness neckbreaker from halfway up the ladder. Bryan rolls out of the ring and Slater starts the climb. This time, Wade Barrett stops him, pummeling him in the corner. Slater counters and climbs to the top rope, but Barrett trips Slater, making him land where the sun don't shine, so to speak. Sheamus and Barrett duke it out for a moment, before both men grab a ladder and use it to launch Slater from the top rope onto Kane from the outside. Sheamus starts leveling everyone in the ring, Barrett, Gabriel, and Rhodes. Sheamus sets up a ladder on the top rope and grabs Justin Gabriel. He drops Gabriel face-first onto the ladder on the top rope and levels him with a Brogue kick. Sheamus then starts climbing. Kane meets him at the top, but gets knocked off by Sheamus. Kane chokeslams Sheamus onto the ladder connected to the turnbuckle. Kane then starts the climb, but Rhodes, Bryan, and Barrett come in and stop him. Barrett hits Wastleland on Kane, and Gabriel hits a very impressive 450 Splash from the sideways ladder on the top rope. Barrett Wastelands Gabriel to the outside onto Slater, takes out Bryan, then hits a pumphandle slam on Rhodes. Barrett then scales the ladder, only to be stopped by Rhodes. Rhodes clotheslines Barrett out of the ring as Bryan slowly climbs up the ladder. Rhodes climbs up after him, and Barrett climbs up behind him. Bryan applies a guillotine on Rhodes, who falls from atop the ladder. Bryan then gets picked up by Barrett, who attempts a Wasteland from atop the ladder. Bryan counters out with a number of elbows to the temple and kicks Barrett off the ladder. Bryan then unhooks the briefcase and wins the match. Still such a great moment to watch.

Del Rio update: Stuck in Mexico? Posted by Roscoe De Soto on 08/30/2011 at 10:53 AM
WWE Champion Alberto Del Rio was not at RAW last night and word is that the visa paperwork he went to complete in Mexico over the weekend is not done yet. Until that's completed, Del Rio can't enter the country to work.
Regarding his match with Sin Cara at tonight's live SmackDown special, word backstage is that the match has been canceled but if Del Rio can make it to the tapings in time tonight, it will still go on. WWE had a detailed video package for the match set to air on RAW last night but held off.
The reason why Punk vs. Nash was changed Posted by Roscoe De Soto on 08/30/2011 at 10:16 AM
WWE officials made the decision some time in the past week or so that Kevin Nash won't be wrestling for them. It's likely Nash will stick around for the time being and participate in the occasional angle but unless something changes, he won't be having a match. This is why CM Punk vs. Kevin Nash at Night of Champions was changed to Punk vs. Triple H. WWE knew going into RAW last night that Nash wouldn't be wrestling.
Nash recently went to Pittsburgh to do physicals for the company and something happened there that made them decide that they don't want Nash in the ring taking bumps and doing something as physical as a whole match. There is still some chance that Nash could end up wrestling but something happened after the physicals that have put a roadblack in front of Nash's return match.
The decision to put Triple H in the match with Punk wasn't made until yesterday. The original plans had Punk going over Nash at Night of Champions.

Raw results: Triple H to battle Punk By: Greg Adkins August 29, 2011 Tags: Raw: August 29, 2011 TULSA, Okla. – As if Triple H isn’t busy enough. Not only did WWE’s Chief Operating Officer figure prominently throughout the first ever Raw SuperShow, combining Superstars from both Raw and SmackDown, he also informed one Superstar that he’ll be hanging up the suit and tie to square off in three weeks at Night of Champions.
Triple H informed CM Punk he will face him at Night of Champions (WATCH) If you want something done right, you have to do it yourself. WWE COO Triple H informed CM Punk at the end of the night that he had spoken with WWE’s Board of Directors – CM Punk’s match against Kevin Nash at Night of Champions had been canceled. Instead, Punk will be facing a different opponent, Triple H himself!
John Cena & Sheamus def. Christian & Mark Henry (WATCH | PHOTOS) In an unprecedented pairing, John Cena teamed up with Sheamus to take on Christian & Mark Henry in the night’s main event. Mr. John Laurinaitis thought he'd arranged the match, but he was sternly reminded by WWE COO Triple H that not only had he already arranged the match, he is also still the boss. Nonetheless, with four of WWE’s most potent Superstars clashing inside the ring, the bout rocked the BOK Center to its foundation. With The World’s Strongest (and possibly scariest) Man inducting more Superstars in his “Hall of Pain,” punishment was sure to be doled out. Although Henry did not disappoint, his overwhelming strength would not be enough. Cena managed to lead his team across the finish line by pinning former World Heavyweight Champion Christian.
Brie Bella def. WWE Divas Champion Kelly Kelly in a Non-Title Match (WATCH | PHOTOS) Brie Bella – so beautiful, so talented, so completely devious. As her sister Nikki hovered ringside, the Bella twin battled WWE Divas Champion Kelly Kelly, who was cheered on by Eve. In the non-title bout, Brie and her sister used Twin Magic to fool the referee and score a cheap victory.
WWE Tag Team Champions Kofi Kingston & Evan Bourne def. David Otunga & Michael McGillicutty (WATCH | PHOTOS) Kofi Kingston & Evan Bourne are for real. The new WWE Tag Team Champions – officially named Air Boom, thanks to suggestions from the WWE Universe – were forced to defend their championships against David Otunga & Michael McGillicutty in a title rematch. Air Boom rained down their aerial assault on the former champions and managed to retain in their first-ever title defense.
After the match, Otunga took issue with announcer Jerry Lawler, ripping off his headphones, after the WWE Hall of Famer had mocked the losing team as "boring."
Sin Cara def. Jack Swagger (WATCH | PHOTOS) Jealousy once again reared its ugly head – and took a bite out of Jack Swagger. In his ongoing attempt to woo Vickie Guerrero to manage him, Swagger took on Sin Cara. As Vickie observed from ringside, her current associate, U.S. Champion Dolph Ziggler berated her and belittled her new potential client. Ziggler even went so far as to distract The All-American American. The interruption allowed Sin Cara to capitalize for an easy victory.
CM Punk def. The Miz by Disqualification (WATCH | PHOTOS) The downside of speaking your mind is that you make a lot of enemies. CM Punk learned that the hard way when he battled The Miz. The blunt Superstar admirably kept pace with his opponent until R-Truth tipped the scales. Miz’s co-conspiracy theorist attacked The Second City Saint in an effort to make a statement and allowing Punk the win by disqualification. As if that weren’t enough abuse, Kevin Nash joined the party and rendered his tormentor motionless with a powerbomb in the center of the ring.
John Cena called out WWE Champion Alberto Del Rio; SmackDown Superstars interrupted (WATCH | PHOTOS) Integrating SmackDown Superstars on Raw is a boon for the WWE Universe. For John Cena, though? Not so much. The Cenation Commander-in-Chief demanded that WWE Champion Alberto Del Rio face him after Del Rio’s cowardly ambush the week before. Instead, Mark Henry emerged and threatened to add Cena to his “Hall of Pain.” Then it was Christian’s turn. Captain Charisma took the mic to discuss how he will soon be the new face of the WWE after he overcomes World Heavyweight Champion Randy Orton tomorrow night in a Steel Cage Title Match on SuperSmackDown.
Just as he and Henry began to size up Cena as a punching bag, Sheamus flew into the ring to thwart his SmackDown adversaries, who reluctantly fled the squared circle.
World Heavyweight Champion Randy Orton def. US Champion Dolph Ziggler in a Non-Title Match (WATCH | PHOTOS) As part of Monday night’s groundbreaking Raw Supershow, a new initiative combining Superstars from Raw and SmackDown, World Heavyweight Champion Randy Orton clashed with U.S. Champion Dolph Ziggler in a non-title match. The SmackDown Superstar appeared surprisingly evenly matched against his Raw counterpart as Ziggler’s outspoken manager, Vickie Guerrero, looked on. Although the U.S. Champion failed to best The Viper, one Raw Superstar looked pleased – Vickie’s potential new client, Jack Swagger, who watched the bout from a monitor in the locker room area. (Prior to the bout, Orton RKO’d Zack Ryder, as seen in this WWE.com Exclusive)
Triple H announced the Raw SuperShow; arranged CM Punk vs. Kevin Nash at Night of Champions (WATCH | PHOTOS) Friendship can be a lot of work, especially if you’re friends with Kevin Nash. After making a major announcement that moving forward the Superstars of both Raw and SmackDown will appear on Monday Night Raw, WWE COO Triple H demanded that his longtime pal offer him an apology in front of the WWE Universe for lying to him last week. The former WWE Champion emerged and admitted that, yes, he had his driver tell Mr. John Laurinitais he’d been in a car accident to get Triple H out of the arena. He did so, he said, in order to payback CM Punk for embarrassing him earlier in the night. Although Nash confessed to the deception, he continued to maintain that he did not know who had sent him a text message instructing him to attack Punk two weeks earlier.
For his part, The Second City Saint wasn’t biting. Instead, he accused The Game and Nash of being in cahoots. Despite their fervent differences, however, Punk and Nash did agree on one thing. Both were exceedingly in favor of the WWE COO arranging a match between them at Night of Champions. After giving the proposal some thought, Triple H agreed and arranged for the two to face off in three weeks.

Confirmed today that the cowboy has a partial separation in my shoulder which occured during the M.A match 2 weeks ago. Been working through the pain hoping it would just go away but just to much to bear. Have to take it easy or could be out 4-6 weeks. Damn my luck.
