He Gone! Nash ‘Fired’ On Raw
As Punk explained that the last time Nash was relevant was the year Justin Bieber was born, Triple H made an entrance, and quickly brought the sparring match to a halt.
Triple H claimed that he had received security tapes from the Staples Center in Los Angeles, and saw someone going into his office where his cell phone was just prior to the message being sent.
The culprit? None other than Kevin Nash himself.
The COO was on the verge of firing Nash, who began to push Triple H, asking if this was about him pushing him down on SmackDown last week. After taunting Triple H, Triple H punched him in the chest, dropping him.
The former friends stared at one another, and Triple H fired him. What did Punk do?
Point, and laugh.
Afterwards, Kevin Nash was seen leaving with John Laurinaitis.
As for the decision to have Nash be the one who sent the text, I believe they ended the debate to move on with the storylines. They’re looking to milk this over multiple PPV’s, but can’t keep dedicating five minutes of air time to Punk only to have him rant about a text message that has become irrelevant to his match with Triple H.

WWE superstar Kevin Nash was fired in storyline Monday by WWE Chief Operating Officier Triple H. Wednesday, WWE.com reported Nash had been released by the company, but there could be more to the story.
The company posted the following statement on its web site, WWE.com.
“WWE has come to terms on the release of WWE Superstar Kevin Nash as of Monday, Sept. 5, 2011. We wish Kevin the best in all future endeavors.”
Speculation fueled on the Internet that this wasn’t actually a release but rather part of a continuing angle, which was reported by PWInsider.com.
SLAM! Wrestling left a message with Nash seeking his side of the story. Nash returned our call and simply said, “No comment.”
Nash tweeted earlier Wednesday about the situation.
“To set the record straight, I passed physical w/ flying colors. Cardiologist was amazed at my lipid profile. Couldn’t reach financial terms.”
He followed that up with this:
“I will not be addressing this matter again. I am moving forward with my life. Cena, it was great having the chance to get to know you.”
Nash is a former WWE Champion best known as being one of the first members of the New World Order in WCW with Scott Hall and Hulk Hogan. He returned to WWE in January for the first time since 2003 with a surprise appearance at the Royal Rumble. Nash stayed on the sidelines until SummerSlam, where he showed up following the main event WWE Championship match between CM Punk and John Cena, giving the match winner, Punk, his trademark Jackknife Power Bomb and costing him the championship.
