In early 2011, regular WWE Jobber, R-Truth, underwent a drastic character alteration. The Truth turned his back on his best friend in John Morrison while claiming to be a victim of the WWE system. Dressed in Confederacy attire, R-Truth exposed what many considered ridiculous claims of a conspiracy against him and his pursuit of the WWE Championship.
As explicit as WWE conspiracies are currently, there are also a number of subliminal conspiracies occurring under the radar of the WWE Universe. Despite this, I am well aware of the numerous conspiracies and I intend on exposing their targets in this article.
Daniel Bryan: The current Mr. Money in the bank, Daniel Bryan, should be riding a huge wave of momentum fresh off his shocking win in SmackDown’s Money in the Bank ladder match. Initially, Bryan put together a small streak of victories before becoming embroiled in a feud with Wade Barrett. The former Nexus cohorts were set to face off at SummerSlam 2011. At the event, Wade Barrett defeated Bryan with the Wasteland. This loss would also upstart the downfall of Daniel Bryan.
The American Dragon has lost every noteworthy match he has been in since SummerSlam. As of late, Bryan has been used as a stepping stone for the Sin Cara vs. Sin Cara feud. Considering his status as Mr. MITB, you’d think Bryan would be booked better than he is. After his latest loss to Sin Cara (Original and Fake), Bryan cut a promo for WWE.com stating that he felt he was cheated. Bryan believes the switch from SmackDown may’ve been planned and things haven’t been going how they’re suppose to since he won the blue briefcase.
It seems as if Bryan is finally realizing the conspiracy against him and his plans to become World Champion at WrestleMania 28.
While Bryan is a victim of the conspiracy, he still has the MITB briefcase. The following Superstar has been to subject to similar treatment but can be defined as worse considering who he is.
John Morrison: The Monday Night Delight hasn’t been so delightful since his return to RAW a few months back. JoMo has undeniably accumulated a number of losses. Simply put, Morrison has won one singles match since his return while partaking in tag team matches with guys like Alex Riley, Kofi Kingston, and Rey Mysterio for victories. Perhaps the most noteworthy and conspiracy supporting loss would be to Alberto Del Rio in a 47 second squash match.
All signs point to Morrison being buried or conspired against by WWE Management/Vince McMahon. It’s no secret that McMahon isn’t too fond of Morrison because of his refusal to initiate physicality with Batista over Melina. Maybe Vince McMahon is conspiring against Morrison because of it.
You never know!
Awesome Truth: The Miz and R-Truth are arguably the most prominent victims of the conspiracy (besides the superstar I will discuss next). While the gripes may’ve been outrageous at first, it seems as if there has been some legitimacy to these claims as of late. For example, Awesome Truth was victims of bad refereeing by WWE appointed officials. During a matchup for the tag team championship against Air Boom, Kofi and Bourne utilized underhanded tactics while the referees were “distracted”. Despite this, Miz was able to handle his own and administer the Skull Crushing Finale on Evan Bourne. Once again, the official was too “busy” with R-Truth to make the count. This infuriated The Miz as he physically assaulted the referee. Instead of explaining the repercussions of his actions to his partner, Truth partook in the assault on the ref as both fled the ring shortly afterwards.
After attacking the COO, Triple H and another referee during the main event, the Awesome Truth understood their actions could mean termination and sincerely apologized to Triple H the next night on RAW. Despite the COO seemingly forgiving the duo and fining them $250,000, Triple H fired them after a loss to John Cena and CM Punk.
The Awesome Truth has exposed the conspiracy as it continues to plague the mentally and professionally. What if the referee was actually in on the conspiracy? What if someone working behind the scenes doesn’t want Truth and Miz as Champions? What if someone intends on holding the duo back?
From the looks of things, it’s hard to deny the conspiracy against the Awesome Truth.
CM Punk: The Voice of the Voiceless has been conspired against since he announced his plans to take the WWE Championship at WWE Money in the Bank and leave. While the actions of Vince McMahon at MITB inexplicitly displayed the conspiracy against Punk and his plan to win the WWE Championship, it seemed as if the conspiracy against Punk ended after McMahon’s removal from the WWE. However, CM Punk found himself in the middle of a full blown conspiracy at the conclusion of SummerSlam 2011.
After defeating John Cena in a matchup for the Undisputed WWE Championship, CM Punk was attacked by Kevin Nash. Big Daddy Cool destroyed Punk with a Jackknife powerbomb. After Nash’s attack on Punk was over, Mr. Money in the Bank, Alberto Del Rio, cashed in on the 2nd City Saint to win his first WWE Championship.
The circumstances surrounding Nash and what motivated him to attack Punk were unclear. The constant bashing of Triple H and his wife by CM Punk pointed to Triple H’s (or Stephanie’s) involvement with Kevin Nash. Nash later revealed that he received a text that said attack the winner of the WWE Championship bout featuring Punk and Cena. While Nash alluded to the perpetrator, Punk was convinced that Triple H was the guilty party.
After numerous weeks of attacks, bickering, and confusion between the three, Triple H granted Punk at match with Nash at WWE Night of Champions. However, Triple H removed Nash from the matchup while inserting himself in it to exact revenge for Punk’s derogatory comments. Triple H’s actions angered Kevin Nash, who was later fired for physically assaulting and goading Triple H into assaulting him.
Before he terminated Nash, Triple H revealed that it was Nash who sent himself the infamous text message. Despite this development, Punk didn’t believe Triple H’s story and felt as if Nash and Hunter were still conspiring against him.
At this point, the involvement of John “Funk Man” Laurinaitis also came into question as he was the one who originally hired Nash and worked with him closely afterwards.
Triple H and CM Punk continued their weekly verbal destruction of the other with Punk convincing Triple H to resign as COO if he was to lose at Night of Champions.
At Night of Champions, Punk’s match with Triple H was compromised by Awesome Truth, Laurinaitis, and Kevin Nash before Punk and Triple H were able to fight off the adversaries.
However, Triple H defeated Punk after a Pedigree and retained his position as the COO.
Despite this, the conspiracy is apparently still active. The actions of John Laurinaitis are becoming more and more questionable with each passing week as Punk has apparently let his guard down when it comes to Triple H. We should get more answers through tonight’s edition of Monday Night RAW.
Could Vince McMahon be tied into the conspiracy? Maybe things aren’t what they seem?
One thing’s for sure and that’s the conspiracy in the WWE.
And I intend on exposing it and the perpetrators through the Conspiracy 101 Series.
