I'm still in shock what happened to Daniel Bryan proving the bad guys wrong? How the Fuck did this become the Cena show.
Yeah, they blew that the night after Summer Slam. Unfortunately, Vince has misinterpreted recent poor buyrates and is reacting in a very regressive manner, so expect lots of airtime for already-established stars (aside from an out-of-nowhere monster push for Roman Reigns, it seems) for the foreseeable future.
@demoskinos: That Nash-Punk angle was likely aborted because Nash didn't think he had enough matches in him to work an extended program with Punk (that story would've needed more than one match if Punk were to benefit), and Nash preferred his last match as an active competitor be against his best friend -- a guy he trusted to protect him, and a guy with whom he was comfortable expressing his limitations.
The Nash-Punk angle didn't happen because HHH wanted to get a (still unrequited) win over Punk.
Nash still wants a match with Punk, he's mentioned it several times since then.
