Re: WOAT Angles/Moments Draft Thread

HHH/CM Punk/Kevin Nash Feud

CM Punk was the hottest wrestler since Stone Cold Steve Austin. He had just cut "the shoot" which got him and the WWE mainstream coverage. WWE followed up Punk's amazing promo with their first 5 star match in years when Punk beat Cena at Money in the Bank. Ideally, after winning, Punk would have stayed away from WWE for longer, but business is business, and SummerSlam was the next month. Punk comes back and faces Cena in the main event of SummerSlam. The two are having an amazing match like they always do, when the unthinkable happens:



Yes in 2011, Kevin Nash makes a run-in during the main event of the second biggest PPV of the year. As if that wasn't bad enough, this proceeds to happen:



So Del Rio wins, and the belt is taken off of the most over wrestler in years, to sell a few extra tickets for the tour in Mexico. Naturally, Punk begins to feud with Kevin Nash (in 2011.) Punk believed that Nash was a goon for HHH. Nash sorta confirmed this by saying that HHH told him to "stick the winner" of the main event of SummerSlam. HHH denied the whole time that he has anything to do with it. Punk cuts a bunch of good promos, Nash does not, and a match is set up between the two for Night of Champions. In real life Nash was not able to pass a physical, so on Raw, HHH changes the match to where he faces Punk himself. On the next week of Raw it is revealed that Nash texted himself to "stick the winner." So HHH and Punk face at Night of Champions, and guess what happens?



HHH wins because he always wins, and Punk is never the same. Punk goes on the have a nice championship reign, but never reaches the level of mainstream success he had before. I will argue with anyone that HHH going over Punk at Night of Champions is the worst booking decision WWE has made in the last 10 years. Oh and what happened to HHH and Nash?



Sledgehammer on a pole match...

Re: WOAT Angles/Moments Draft Thread

Doing that whole writeup without referring to Nash "making wrestling fun again" is a pretty big oversight.

Also for some reason I had thought the post-MITB Punk stuff had been selected earlier, but if not, strong pick here.

Re: WOAT Angles/Moments Draft Thread

we took HHH and friends and referred to all this stuff as part of it; judgement call as to whether it's OK.

Oh yeah, that's right. Meh, pick stands. Not too intent on being nitty about invalidating picks since this (even more than most drafts IMO) is about the writeup journey more than the destination.

Idk how I forgot about that. I also forgot to mention how often he brought up getting the biggest "pop" at the Royal Rumble.

Re: WOAT Angles/Moments Draft Thread

Okay, I'm making this one my last pick. I've got a few other minor things on my board, but this seems like a good way to end it.

JR's reaction in that "anal bleeding" gif will always tickle me.
