Raw Recall for Aug. 17, 2011
SAY WHAT?: NASH BRIDGES
“Don’t really answer this, it’s a rhetorical question: If Triple H told you to jump off a bridge, would you? Because I think that would be good for business!”
-CM Punk, interrupting Kevin Nash’s explanation for his
“business”-inspired assault on The Second City Savior one night earlier at SummerSlam
TAKE THAT: THE KINGSTON DUO
The high-flying duo of Kofi Kingston & Evan Bourne brings new meaning to the term “wing man.” The Dreadlocked Dynamo & “Air” Bourne clashed with WWE Tag Team Champions David Otunga & Michael McGillicutty in a non-title bout, and put away the champions with the combined power of Trouble in Paradise and the Shooting Star Press. Consider the “boom” dropped.
OH, SNAP!: HUSTLE, LOYALTY, REMATCH
You didn’t think that emerging victorious in his first-ever WWE Championship defense would be enough to sate Alberto Del Rio’s massive ego, did you? After turning back Rey Mysterio in The Ultimate Underdog’s hometown of San Diego, The Mexican Aristocrat cruelly applied his dreaded cross ambreaker and threatened to break Rey-Rey’s arm. Fortunately, John Cena stormed the ring and chased off the devious Del Rio, vowing to reclaim the illustrious prize in a WWE Championship rematch.
OUCH: DEEP-SEATED RESENTMENT
John Morrison isn’t usually quick to anger, but when it comes to his intensely bitter rivalry with former friend R-Truth, we can understand the hostility. The Guru of Greatness battled the conspiracy theorist on his own terms in a Falls Count Anywhere Match, which spilled over the ringside barricade and into the crowd. Ultimately, Morrison’s parkour expertise prevailed, and he ultimately finished off his unorthodox foe with a suplex onto an announcer’s chair followed up by a devastating running knee to the face. Take a seat, Truth!
