WWE SummerSlam 2011 Results: What Does Kevin Nash's Return Mean?

TJ NagyAnalyst IIIAugust 14, 2011

Big Daddy Cool has finally returned.

In probably the most thrilling surprise of the night, Kevin Nash appeared out of nowhere and left his mark on the biggest event of the summer.

Wholly thanks to his jackknife powerbomb on the newly crowned CM Punk, Alberto Del Rio was able to cash in his Money in the Bank briefcase and leave L.A. with the WWE title. 

The reason behind Kevin Nash's actions are still unclear, since he fled as quickly as he came. Even Triple H seemed pretty shocked by the appearance of one of his best and oldest friends. Hopefully, Nash will make his long-awaited return to Raw tomorrow and explain his shocking actions.

There's a lot of questions that definitely need to be answered as to why Nash decided to go after Punk. The former Second City Saint has continually run his mouth about Triple H and maybe Nash took it a little personally. Maybe even Mrs. McMahon-Helmsley brought him back to stick up for her man. Her appearance at SummerSlam just seemed too arbitrary to not mean anything.  

There's also the possibility that Nash simply wanted to announce his big return and it really didn't matter who the champ was. Still, since Punk was his unfortunate victim, the seeds of at least a small rivalry have most likely been planted.

It will be interesting to see what Triple H says about all this, since his response to Nash's attack was basically the same as everyone else in the crowd. Shock and awe.

In my opinion, there's definitely going to be a showdown between the two in the next few weeks. However, it will be interesting to see how it plays out, since the next pay-per-view event is Night of Champions. Putting these two men in a match on that night would be somewhat puzzling. 

In any case, it seems pretty obvious that we'll see a triple threat match at the PPV next month. Punk should automatically get his rematch clause against Del Rio, and Cena (besides always being in the main event) has a very valid argument after the controversial way in which he lost at SummerSlam.

All the same, Nash's devastating return might just foreshadow a pretty big shakeup in the upcoming weeks.

There's still too many questions left unanswered to even predict what tomorrow's Raw will have in store for us, but hopefully things will become much, much clearer.

In the meantime, welcome back Mr. Nash.
