CM Punk and Bret Hart exchanged props on Twitter after SummerSlam. For those who missed it, Punk was paying tribute to Bret last night with his pink and black tights.
Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst was escorted out of the STAPLES Center in Los Angeles, California, the venue for WWE’s SummerSlam pay-per-view event Sunday night, by security personnel after flipping the bird while being shown live on camer
Durst, however, is denying that he was kicked out of the venue. He wrote on Twitter, “I was leaving to beat the traffic! Haha, security escorting me out?? WWE is family. hahaha. Is this really a rumor? Amazing. My boys at WWE are cracking up! Note- never leave early to beat traffic!”
Following a flight from Las Vegas, Nevada to San Antonio, Texas on August 5, Mendes, whose real name is Milena Roucka, contacted the San Antonio Police Department to file battery charges against boyfriend and former WWE talent Steven Slocum for an apparent domestic issue that took place prior to her flight. Police on the scene took photos of Roucka’s body, which showed scratches and bruising from the incident. Roucka was absent from Raw the following night and was presumably given time off to recover from the ordeal.
– CM Punk’s WWE Championship victory over John Cena and Big Show Sunday at SummerSlam extended two pay-per-view streaks. His win marked as his ninth consecutive successful title defense on pay-per-view. However, despite his reign atop WWE, it was the eighth consecutive pay-per-view in which he did not defend the title in the main event.
DID YOU KNOW? Two things went down Tonight at Summerslam.
1. This is Los Angeles, California, Home to the Los Angeles Lakers. Massive Kobe Bryant Chants took place during the Prime Time Player vs. R-Truth & Kofi Kingston Match
2. An A.W. sign was confiscated during the match between Triple H & Brock Lesnar: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ROzNrz7DbkY&feature=youtu.be
– Triple H’s retirement tease at SummerSlam was designed to look just like the Shawn Michaels farewell from WrestleMania 26, right down to how it was shot.
The idea is that Brock Lesnar did “break the spirit of WWE” and now Triple H has the doubts and doesn’t know if he is able to come back. As noted before, the plan is to build to a rematch, likely at Survivor Series.
As of now, tonight is the only scheduled appearance for Brock Lesnar in the near future.
Shortly after WWE released their storyline update on Triple H’s condition, several WWE talents posted reactions on Twitter.
Cody Rhodes ?@CodyRhodesWWE
HHH would be just fine not getting paid long as he still was able to walk down the ramp…I feel the same, so I can’t imagine hanging it up.
Santino Marella ?@milanmiracle
I’m concern for HHH, back stage he looked . . . its hard to put in words but there seemed to be no wind in his sails, if that make sense
Big win for the tag team champs,,but I’m worried about HHH,,he’s really banged up bad,,not to mention a broken arm..
Triple h and Brock was very good I expected such a match.H is long from done gladiators die inthe ring.That man is not dead by a long shot.
Vickie Guerrero ?@ExcuseMeWWE
Triple H is built of steel, he will recover and face Brock once again!
Chris Jericho ?@IAmJericho
#SummerSlam was amazing! Great match w @HEELZiggler and I proved my point! And if that was HHH last stand…what a way to go out! #truewarrior
Can’t help but wonder what is going to happen to HHH after his loss to Brock at SummerSlam. Maybe it’s his last match as it was so intense.
Confirmed for tonight’s show is an appearance by Chris Jericho and Khloe Kardashian at the Social Media Ambassador. Also, Shawn Michaels is teasing that he will be making an appearance live via satellite.
Tonight’s show will kick off at 8pm EST with Paul Heyman and Brock Lesnar speaking about the win over Triple H at SummerSlam.
WWE is focusing on the following points for tonight’s RAW:
* Will Triple H be in any condition to face Lesnar?
* What will CM Punk have to say to John Cena?
* Alberto Del Rio is looking to make a statement after the SummerSlam controversy
* How will Dolph Ziggler react to his SummerSlam loss to Chris Jericho?
* What’s next for Daniel Bryan and what does AJ Lee have in store for Kane after he put his hands on Josh Mathews?
Shawn Michaels tweet: I’m moved to the country for peace and quiet…all these TV & Satellite Trucks definitely ain’t peaceful!
As noted before, AJ Lee is promising consequences for Kane on tonight’s RAW after he assaulted Josh Mathews at SummerSlam. Apparently those consequences will be anger management sessions like Daniel Bryan had a few weeks back.
Cm Punk tweet : I Love @JohnCena saying I got lucky. It’s not luck, it’s skill. With the odds against me, I won. Not once, but twice. Gotta #respect that.
showing that the hype for night of champions will proceed between cena and punk
– Regarding Charlie Sheen not working SummerSlam, word is that WWE is still open to doing business with him but now they’re looking at having him back for WrestleMania 29 in 2013. WWE wanted Sheen for SummerSlam but the deal just couldn’t come together in time.
