WWE Payback 2013: 14 Things We Learned from the New PPV

April 7, 2013 was the last time we saw CM Punk in the ring. Sunday night, he returned to the ring in his hometown of Chicago.

The "Second City Saint" was a bit rusty and a bit lost at first, but in the end, he proved he was still "The Best in the World."

For the WWE's "Payback" pay-per-view was exciting and pretty good for a new event, with three titles changing hands and a whole bunch of confusion to be had and explained.

The Shield, all three members, retained their titles. Randy Orton and Daniel Bryan continued their confused relationship. Kane lost his chance to be United States champion. 

Kaitlyn tried to kiss AJ goodbye and lost the Divas title, but Lee's beau Dolph Ziggler lost the World title in the process.

Did we see Ziggler become a hero in defeat when Alberto Del Rio continued to punish Ziggler's skull after he returned from a concussion?

Shades of respect for the heel, like Stone Cold Steve Austin in his match with Bret Hart. 

Oh, and John Cena retained the WWE title by putting Ryback through the ambulance the hard way.

Here is what we learned tonight.
