WWE Raw Results – August 29, 2011
RAW this week starts with Triple H out to the ring. His suit still sits badly around his shoulders. Trip say it’s his job to give the absolute best the wee can give. That this company survives and thrives. Starting tonight and in the future, we won’t only get RAW Superstars, but Smackdown Superstars to give a RAW Super Show. That’s a cool part of being COO. But there’s bad thing at this job, being lied to, texting, car crash all of this lies. Worst is that it’s coming from one of his best friends. Kevin said Trip is trying to keep Kevin from being a man, so why doesn’t Nash come to the ring and explain this.
Punk’s music hits and he comes down to the ring. The fans love him. Video from last week when Nash distracted Punk and caused him to lose to Cena for the contendership. Punk is clapping at Trip. He calls Trip a performance. He was in some movies, but this was Oscar caliber. Punk wants Trip to man up and stop lying.
At this point Nash’s music hits. Trip gets between Punk and Nash. Nash loudly says he lied! He had his driver call Laurinaitis and tell him he was in a wreck. He knew it would pull Trip from the building and he needed to finish with Punk, so he got rid of Trip. Punk’s been trying to make a fool out of Nash and that’s over. The thing is that it’s not Trip that Punk is offending, it’s Trip’s wife! This is a pregnant pause.
Nash might not have acted the way Trip wants him to, but what type of man is Trip. Another pregnant pause. Trip says the kind who isn’t lied to by a friend. He can’t trust Nash who lied to his face. He’s asking one more time like before – leave! Leave and don’t come back.
Nash said he did lie, only about the accident, not the text. When Trip was out of the building, Laurinaitis signed Nash to a very lucrative contract. So, buddy, old pal, if he wants to fire Nash he has to do it in front of everyone. It’s written in that Nash can sit home and get paid.
Trip says he won’t fire Nash, but the lying stops now. Punk starts choking, dry heaving and playing a gagging mess all over the mat, but noting comes out. Punk says Trip and Nash are acting, the way Punk is now. Trip can’t get his hands dirty, so Nash does it. Not only does Trip accept Nash’ apology, but hires Nash back! Punk then says, “Hey everybody, the Kliq’s back, yeah!” Punk even threw up the hand for it. Kliq is a funny name as that’s what people do with their remotes when Nash is on. Huge pop for that. It’s also the noise Nash’s knees makes when he walks.
Nash says he’s officially back, why doesn’t Trip book the match that everyone wants, the match Punk says he wants. Punk says at NOC as Nash’s a Champion ass kisser. Trip has to talk to the board of directions, meaning his wife. She’s the one who runs this company. Trip doesn’t wear the pants in the family, but he does wear her panties. “Pipebomb!”
Trip is very rattled by this and glares at Punk who doesn’t back down. Trip says Punk wants the match? Fin, Punk and Nash, NOC. As far as those two, he has two words for them both. Trip raises his mic high for the fans to yell. ‘Suck it!’

ADR’s actions show that he doesn’t have class is a coward Champ and has mastered the ancient art of “BLEEP!” (No clue what Cena said, but the announcers were shocked by it.)
