It's no longer about business now, it's extremely personal as The Game, Triple H, faces the Voice of the Voiceless, CM Punk.
The domino effect that led to all of this began when CM Punk gave the promo shoot of a lifetime, venting real-life frustrations and bashing the McMahon family. CM Punk would then go on to win the WWE Championship at Money in the Bank and left WWE with it.
This would lead to Triple H replacing McMahon as COO of WWE. Then came Summerslam, where CM Punk was attacked by Kevin Nash after his title match, resulting in losing his title to Del Rio right after. Nash then claimed he got a text message from Triple H's cell even though HHH said he had no involvement, and soon it began tumbling down.
Nash and Punk's personal vendetta against one another kept getting raised with screw-overs and pipe bombs, while the lies from Nash continued to pile up onto Triple H. Punk continually insulted HHH, his wife and manhood without backing off. Soon, Triple H had had enough, and after cancelling Punk/Nash, put himself against "The Best in the World" at Night of Champions.
Soon the situation with Nash exploded, as he was revealed to have set up the whole text message controversy and was promptly fired by Triple H. With Nash gone, Triple H and Punk continued their war of words and in order to settle it, it was made a No DQ by HHH. But Punk had Triple H agree to the stipulation that if he lost, he would have to resign as COO.
The explosive build-up came to its climax this past Monday on Raw. When CM Punk was about to give out another pipe-bomb, his mic was cut off abruptly...not once, but twice. HHH wanted to hear what Punk had to say so he gave him a microphone, but Punk blasted HHH right in the head with a literal pipe-bomb.
It is safe to say that in this match we will see a brutality that only this level of personal animosity could give.
Ironically, this match, where there are no titles but only a personal grudge, is the most hyped, built-up and anticipated match on a PPV where all titles are on the line. This match is what the world is waiting to see and it couldn't be any bigger than this.
I don't have any idea what will happen. CM Punk could win, Triple H could win, Kevin Nash could come out and screw one of them over or Shawn Michaels could get involved—the possibilities are endless. And with the stipulation of HHH resigning if he loses and Punk on the roll of a lifetime, this is the match that could change the landscape of WWE forever.
So, as a huge fan of CM Punk, I will go with "The Cult of Personality" to pick up the win and establish himself—finally—as a huge star for the company.
Prediction: CM Punk
