WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP – CM Punk © vs Undertaker
Breaking Point was a night where a new champion was crowned but a champion got away with robbery of the World Heavyweight Championship. Undertaker made CM Punk tap in the Submissions Match and became champion.
Unfortunately, Smackdown GM Theodore Long got in the way of Taker’s victory by saying that the submission move Hell’s Gate was banned due to former GM Vickie Guerrero banning it. So the match went on.
Soon as Undertaker was about to take advantage of the match, Punk clipped him by the legs and had him with the Andaconda Vise and all of the sudden Referee Scott Armstrong rings the bell.
Punk was declared the winner, but if you watch the replay, Undertaker did not tap. Referee Scott Armstrong gave the title to Punk and both went to the back to avoid The Deadman.
This wasn’t the first time that Montreal went through something controversial as this. Bret Hart & Shawn Michaels fought for the WWE Championship at Survivor Series in 1998, of course Michaels had Hart with the Sharpshooter and ex WWF/E referee Earl Hebner rung the bell to declare Shawn Michaels the winner.
However, Bret Hart did not submit and the man who orchestrated the ending was the Chairman himself Vince McMahon.
There were questions that need to be answered on Smackdown. Scott Armstrong admitted that he was ashamed of the events that took place at Breaking Point and he felt guilty. Not only the Undertaker and the WWE Universe were livid but Mr.McMahon was upset as well.
McMahon told Theodore Long to explain his actions and tell the audience the truth , plus to apologize for the controversy. Before Long would address the Universe, McMahon warned him about how you don’t mess with The Undertaker.
Long admitted that there was a plot involving him, Scott Armstrong and World Champion CM Punk to prevent The Phenom from winning the championship at Breaking Point. He was remorseful about his actions.
After Theodore Long made his public apology, the security escorted him to his for protection. However, the smoke didn’t clear for Long when The Undertaker took him for the ride.
On the Sept 25th episode of Smackdown, Long would be back after his abduction of The Deadman. CM Punk would of course lecture the WWE Universe until the druids came to ringside with a coffin. As Punk, would open the coffin cautiously, there lied the Smackdown GM tied and gagged.
Punk unties and ungasgs a petrified Long and he would announced that CM Punk would defend his title in a rematch against The Deadman, but this time in the demonic structure that’s Hell In A Cell and what’s worse, he allows Hell’s Gate to be used.
Then he makes a non-title match between The Undertaker and CM Punk. Of course, CM Punk found a way to beat the challenger for his World Heavyweight Championship and that was by count-out.
Now at Hell In A Cell, this will not be any regular match. These two adversaries will be locked in the steel structure. This will be an all out war.
CM Punk has never competed in the Hell In A Cell, while The Undertaker has experience the Cell by fighting the likes of Shawn Michaels, The Rock, Stone Cold, Triple H, Rikishi, & Kurt Angle in Armageddon 2000, Mick Foley/Mankind, Big Boss Man, ex-WWE wrestler/UFC Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar, Batista & Edge.
Will the Straightedge Superstar walk out of New Jersey still the World Heavyweight Champion? Or will The Undertaker put an end to Punk’s reign and become champion for the seventh time in his career? Win or lose, these two will not be the same after this hellacious match.
STAR RATING: It’s hard to say if this rivalry will continue into the next PPV that’s Bragging Rights, but if it’s the final chapter to their rivalry, this will be a good match. This match will be better than the last match at Breaking Point and no controversy. The fans deserve better than a remake of the Montreal Screwjob.
PREDICTION: The Undertaker. Hands down this is The Deadman’s kind of match. Experience and war wounds of the Hell In A Cell match will prevail over CM Punk’s inexperience in this match.
Punk has won two Money In The Bank matches, Samoan Strap Match and the TLC Match, but this match is the biggest and challenging match in Punk’s career. CM Punk’s chances of holding onto the title will come to an end this Sunday.
