And there was his best friend in real life Triple H, who is now in a bigger position of the company, on his side.

So we will never have a chance to see both guys tearing their biceps in the ring at the same time anymore..... sad.....

I wonder if they're gonna bring in a different kliq member to try to continue things? Maybe bring XPac in and have him get upset with Hunter for "selling out" and firing Nash and betraying the group?

I'd say Hall would be a better candidate but i'm 99.99999% sure that they wouldn't put any faith or major storylines on his shoulders.

I'm watching 9/05/11 Raw on youtube and notice that CM Punk is a fan favorite now, while Nash is being boo'd and Triple H got cheered. I thought Punk was a heel at SummerSlam which was a couple of weeks ago.

So who's the face and who's the heel in the Triple H-Punk feud?

The last time I heard his news, Waltman is still in wrestling shape. So, it could happen. But for Scott Hall......

Punk is the "people's face". He has tried to be Stone Cold-ish fan favorite, an anti-hero against the authority, since his big "shoot" rant. Johnny Ace plays Mr. McMahon role while Trip plays Linda McMahon-ish somewhat neutral character.

It works well..... kinda?

Ahh, kinda like the old Attitude Era days with tweeners, heels and faces.

Good to see the fans being heavily involved with the angles again. Truth is another guy who's getting a huge reaction; I hope he gets the WWE belt down the road.

I don't see Truth getting it. He gets a good reaction. And his recent co-op with Miz has been quite entertaining. But the "conspiracy" angle seems to fit him well.

He was getting a huge buzz when he first turned heel, got him a PPV main event title match but they cut his push short and gave it to Punk like after that one-month Truth-Cena feud.

Truth should be the next heel champion after Del Rio's run.

If this is true, WWE creative is so damn lazy. How many times they have used this "future endeavor" angles within a year?

I think WWE releasing Nash is a part of their story line.

WWE is now playing with "firings". Well, Triple H just fired The Miz and R-Truth tonight. We will see them back very soon.

Honestly I think its pretty damn smart what WWE is doing by using the whole "future endeavors" thing to further storylines, using Twitter to have wrestlers really seem upset, using the news sites as ways to get in the fans heads...

IMO pro wrestling stopped being as good once all those internet sites came along cuz they ruined the fun and suspense of it, but now theyre using the news sites to THEIR advantage by blurring the lines again. Now it's at a point where people read spoilers and backstage news on the dirt sheets and go "whatever it's just part of the plot", so most people just completely discredit "backstage rumors" altogether.

They took the thing that ruined so many of their storylines, and ruined it by flipping the tables and making it part of their storylines.
