Didn't see that coming.
The match between Punk and Cena was lackluster. With no new title belt, a SuperCena appearance and a terrible DQ finish, I thought the ending to the 1,000th episode of Raw was going to be terrible.
And then the Rock's music hit and I texted my roommate, "OH YES."
Rock dominated Big Show, dropped the spine buster, started the People's Elbow and... got laid out by Punk! My next text to my roommate was, "YES YES YES YES YES."
Punk, looking ever conflicted, proceeded to mock the Rock with his won set-up and then nailed the GTS and slowly departed with his WWE Championship.
My roommate then responded, "He's going to be the most talked about wrestler for a while now. This was the one big moment he needed to be THE guy."
I couldn't agree more.
CM Punk wasn't having it anymore. No more being overshadowed by the likes of the Rock and John Cena. No more Mr. Nice Punk.
This was truly the most epic moment of Monday night and I really cannot wait for what should be an epic pipe bomb next week.
Awesome. So awesome.
