Raw Results 09/05/11

WWE Raw Results from Columbus, OH:

The show opened with CM Punk coming out to reiterate his claims that Triple H and Nash were involved in some sort of plot against him. CM Punk kept talking until Nash showed up from backstage, and eventually their war of words got Nash walking towards the ring.

COO Triple H came down to the ring and Nash suggested Hunter needs to do something about Punk. HHH said Punk hasn't lied to him no matter what the situation, so tonight he's getting rid of someone. Hunter revealed that he learned it was Nash who texted himself at Summerslam and then went to attack Punk. Nash started to shove Triple H again and then got punched down by HHH. HHH told Nash he's fired, and left the ring. CM Punk walked by Nash and told him "best wishes in your future endeavors."

Backstage, an irate Kevin Nash was storming off to leave in a car. John Lauranaitis was trying to calm him down and eventually got in the car with him as it left the area.

Kofi Kingston and Evan Bourne defeated the Smackdown team of Jinder Mahal and Great Khali in a non-title match. Evan Bourne hit Air Bourne on Mahal for the winning pin.

Alberto Del Rio was shown arriving in the backstage parking garage area with Ricardo Rodriguez. Del Rio had missed last week's Raw and Smackdown shows.

Beth Phoenix defeated Eve Torres by pinfall to become the #1 contender for the WWE Divas Championship. Kelly Kelly and Natalya were both on guest commentary. When Kelly went to check on Eve post-match, she got knocked down by Natalya.

Christian was talking to Drew McIntyre backstage saying he deserves one more shot at the World Heavyweight Championship. Alberto Del Rio came up and said he needed a word with Christian, so Drew left the scene. Del Rio reminded Christian that John Cena hit an Attitude Adjustment on him 24 hours before his World Heavyweight title match, so that may have cost him the match. He told Christian they'd both be champions right now if not for Cena and then let Christian think it over.

The ref jumped out of the ring and tossed Miz, sending him backstage. Punk was watching it all go down, and Truth got up to attack him. Truth punched Punk from behind and went to whip him across the ring, but Punk picked up Truth on his shoulders and hit GTS for the win.

Punk barely had time to celebrate because COO HHH came to the ring. He told Punk he changed their match for NOC PPV. It'll be a no disqualification, anything goes match because HHH wants to hurt him. HHH went to leave the ring, but Punk stopped him and said he'll agree to that if HHH agrees to his stipulation. If Punk wins, HHH resigns as COO of WWE. Hunter said "done" and threw the mic down, then left the ring.

Winner: CM Punk wins via pinfall over R-Truth.

Jerry Lawler & Myster Partner vs. David Otunga & Michael McGillicutty
