Triple H is Walking backstage with Teddy Long going over the contract for his match with CM Punk, the contract signing is up next.

Back from the commercial and Teddy Long is in the ring. Out comes WWE COO Triple H. HHH says after conferring with the Board of Directors, he canceled CM Punk vs. Kevin Nash last night and put him in the match against Punk. HHH says the Board was kind enough to let him take the suit off for one night to deal with Punk. He asks Punk to join him in the ring.

Punk takes a seat, saying all this is unnecessary. Punk asks Triple H why they're here. Triple H says last night was a bit unfair and he knows he caught Punk off guard. Punk says no, he did not catch him off guard. Nothing in WWE catches him off guard anymore. Triple H says Punk has disrespected him and his family. Punk tries to talk but Triple H tells him to shut up because he isn't done talking. HHH says despite Punk disrespecting his family and holding WWE hostage with the title, he tried working with him. HHH says he bent over backwards to work with Punk but that still wasn't good enough. Triple H asks Punk who he thinks got Living Colour to let Punk come to the ring to Cult of Personality. HHH says he got that done and paid the bill. HHH says he got Punk's shirt approved that says best in the world. HHH says he gave Punk Nash last night and he still pushed his buttons. HHH says he's trying his ass off to be the bigger man and the COO around here but he can only take so much. Punk has insulted him as a man, now he has to deal with him as a man.

Punk likes that. He says he wants to face Triple H, not the COO. Punk says the new Triple H sucks. Punk says Vince McMahon couldn't separate personal issues between business issues and now Triple H is doing the same thing. Punk says he doesn't hate WWE, he loves this place. If he hated it, he wouldn't be here. He'd be at home a lot happier. Punk says he wants change. He recognizes when things suck and speaks his mind. Punk says he wants things to be better for everybody. Punk says he is dying for a change. We are dying for a change, he says. Punk wants to be the catalyst for that change. HHH says Punk wants to be the catalyst as long as it benefits him. HHH says about half of the people agree with Punk and the other half could care less what he says. HHH says some people actually like WWE the way it is. Could it be better? Sure, he says, and that's why he's here. HHH says Punk only wants change if CM Punk is on top. HHH says Punk is no different than anyone else who has been in this business, including him. HHH says he looked people in the eye and told them he was going to step on them. HHH says Punk is doing it the opposite way, the back door way. Punk says he isn't trying to be a martyr and isn't trying to step on anyone. Punk says he wants everyone to like what they see, not just half. Punk wants it to be fun again. Punk says right, he is doing this for himself. Punk says before he became a wrestler, he was a fan, and at his core he is still a fan. Punk says he will do what he knows is for the better and what will make WWE fun again. Punk says he says bad things about Stephanie McMahon because it's fun but also to push Triple H's buttons. Punk says Triple H failed, he is just like Vince McMahon. Punk says he thought Triple H and himself wanted the same things but it turns out that Triple H is the same 'ol vindictive person. Punk says he's seen it before.

Punk says this match has been a long time coming because they've never liked each other. Punk tells Triple H not to fine him or suspend him after he kicks his ass at Night of Champions. Punk signs the contract. Triple H says one of the differences between he and Punk is respect. HHH says he respects Vince McMahon for what he's done and says they wouldn't be right here tonight if it weren't for Vince. HHH says comparing him to Vince is a huge compliment. HHH goes to sign the contract but Punk tells him to hold up. Punk goes on and says HHH has lost touch. He's the guy who likes to point at his crotch and tell people to suck it. Punk says he wants change. Triple H says if Punk wants change, he's going to get it. HHH says this is how he's not like Vince and signs the contract. HHH says Vince would have got in the ring with Punk at Night of Champions and taken a beaten because it's good for business. HHH says it's not business between he and Punk, it's personal. HHH says he's going to kick Punk's "skinny fat ass" and drops the mic.

Here comes Kevin Nash, Punk gets up ready to fight as Nash heads to the ring. Triple H holds Punk back. Nash gets in the ring and they go at it. Punk fires away with kicks and backs Nash in the corner. Nash comes out and drops Punk with a big-boot. Triple H shoves Nash. Nash pushes Triple H and he falls on his ass. Nash stands over Triple H and clutches his fist before walking out of the ring.

Sheamus vs The Great Khali up next.

As we come back from break we see that during the commercials Matt Striker tried to get some comments, he was unsucessful as Nash just stared him out and walked off.

Here comes Kahli & Sheamus.

Sheamus picks the win by DQ after Jinder Mahal interceades into the match, Kahli and Mahal try to carry on the assault on Sheamus after the bell but The Great White gets the upper hand and delivers the Celtic Cross to Jinder Mahal.

It's Main Event time, the steel cage is being lowered and we are getting set for Randy Orton putting his World Title on the line against Christian.

Really great match between these two and after an RKO from the top rope Orton retains the title.

After the match here comes Mark Henry and he is handing Orton a beating & it is one hell of a beating Orton is left out in the ring as Mark Henry poses over him with the belt.

COLUMN: "Shooting from the Hip" #5 by Tony J Mirabella

So, last night we got a “supershow” on Monday Night Raw, which featured superstars from Smackdown. We got to see matches that we’re not used to seeing, and storylines involving inter-mixing of both brands.

I enjoyed Raw last night, simply because I’m not a regular Smackdown viewer, and it was nice to see these guys. I have nothing against Smackdown, I’m just a creature of habit, and don’t usually catch it.

One thing everyone needs to know is my view on the brand split. Hate it. Have hated it since day one. Now, I realize why it was done. It makes sense from the standpoint of spreading out your talent. If you have 4 or 5 top guys, it makes sense to have some of them exclusive to one show or another. It also makes sense from the standpoint of time. Having all your top guys on both shows means you have to block those shows so everyone gets a chance to shine. 2 hours isn’t a lot of time to do that.

However, and this is just my opinion, the WWE doesn’t have nearly the talent it had when the brand split first happened. Back then, you had Austin, the Rock, HHH and Shawn Michaels, just to name a few. Now, sadly, other than Cena, Punk and Orton, what break out stars do you have? Mixing or merging the brands makes sense now.

Also, I’ve never been a fan of having two separate world titles. It makes no sense. There should be one world champion representing the entire company. It devalues the world title by having two separate champions. Can you imagine how much the Superbowl would be devalued if two teams could hold claim to being the Superbowl champs?

And, getting back to what I was saying earlier, TV viewers are creatures of habit. A WWE fan who watches Raw does not necessarily watch Smackdown, and vice versa. That means you are limiting the exposure of certain talents on one brand or the other. It also means that some matches we may want to see simply don’t happen because of brand exclusivity.

I thought it was cool last night seeing Sheamus run in to backup Cena. Seeing Randy Orton on Raw was also a treat. And, who else marked out for the Sin Cara mood lighting on Raw? Show of hands? Let’s see, 1….. Okay. Bad example. When I want to see two men, barely dressed, throwing each other around in a darkly lit room, I’ll rent some gay porn.

Bottom line is, Raw had a lot of mark out moments last night, and it was all because of the Smackdown guys being there. I’m looking forward to the Smackdown supershow tonight, again, because I know I’ll get to see guys from both brands. The brand split should be ended, and both titles consolidated. End of story. Take a vote on WWE.com and ask the fans what they think?

Now, to switch gears for a moment. I’d like to talk about the HHH and Punk storyline. I’ve got two words for you, and they aren’t “suck it.” TOO FAST! What I mean by that is, why do we have Punk ready to fight HHH at Night of Champions? Why would HHH, who just became COO, get in the ring again so soon? It should be Punk VS Kevin Nash, with Nash putting Punk over. That’s the only reason Nash should be there. To put younger talent over. HHH vs Punk should have had a slow build to it. What’s the rush with WWE storylines these days? We, as fans, do have patience, and if a storyline is well done we don’t mind a slow burn over several months.

After Night of Champions, what do you do with CM Punk? If this match does happen, Punk HAS to go over. Either that, or HHH has to win via interference from Nash or someone. If HHH beats Punk cleanly, it will totally devalue the push he’s been given.

But what do I know? I’m just a stupid fan. At the end of the day, I don’t want to see HHH just become Vince McMahon version 2.0. The Game has always had a unique personality, and it should be retained.

That’s it for this week. Tune in next time where this entire column will be presented in mood lighting. After all, if you think this column sucks, maybe the dark lighting will just cover up all my mistakes. Seems to work for Sin Cara. Don’t worry though. A strobe light will illuminate the ring for your kissing pleasure.
