WWE Raw: CM Punk vs John Cena, Kevin Nash with Triple H and other videos from the Aug. 22 show

via <a href=""></a>

WWE, for whatever reason, was late getting its videos up for this past week's episode of Raw, which emanated from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada on Aug. 22.

The show featured the continuation of the feud between CM Punk and Kevin Nash, with Triple H riding along as an (apparent) unwilling participant.

John Cena and Punk also had another, incredible match to determine who will face Alberto Del Rio at "Night of Champions" for the WWE title. Speaking of "ADR," he had himself yet another great match, this time against mid-card jobber, John Morrison.

And, of course, much more.

CM Punk, John Cena and Alberto Del Rio open the show squabbling like children before Triple H comes out to set them straight and book the evening's matches.

Alberto Del Rio gets a match with John Morrison, most likely for the sole purpose of making him look good. What makes "ADR" so damn special, though, is that he made Morrison look as competent in the ring as anyone ever has.

The issues between Vickie Guerrero, Dolph Ziggler and Jack Swagger advance, with Alex Riley the movable pawn in the middle.

Evan Bourne and Kofi Kingston def. David Otunga and Michael McGillicutty to win the WWE tag team titles in a match that was far more exciting than one might think.

Kevin Nash and Triple H attempt to clear the air on the entire text message ordeal before CM Punk hits the ring and calls them on their bullshit. "The Game" makes sure to let everyone know Nash doesn't actually work for WWE.

The Miz and R-Truth take over Raw and deliver one of the best segments on the show, connecting with the crowd about as well as they ever have.

They further advance the storyline with Triple H and Kevin Nash, this time by adding the Johnny Laurinaitis wrinkle, who claims Nash was in the hospital when really ...

... he was getting ready to crash the main event and cost CM Punk his match against John Cena, which was another classic between the two and may have been even better than any match they've had so far.
