WWE Raw August 8, 2011: CM Punk Pins Alberto Del Rio
CM Punk vs. Alberto Del Rio
King immediately tries to pass off Punk's face heat as simply GREAT heel heat for Alberto Del Rio...good Lord, why can't they just admit people like the guy? Del Rio stomps away but Punk fires off some kicks before hitting post on a blind charge and injuring his shoulder. ADR hits Divorce Court for two and stays on the arm, something that he's always been good at doing.
A sunset flip attempt by Punk is countered by Del Rio elbow dropping the arm but he misses a charge against the ropes and goes splat on the floor. Del Rio gets frustrated and runs into a neckbreaker, earning himself a high knee-bulldog combo. Punk looks to finish but Del Rio runs him into the post again and hits a Back Stabber for two. Punk manages to avoid the cross armbreaker and hits a kick to the face to setup the GTS for the win.
Winner: CM Punk
-Totally don't understand the booking here: Why job Del Rio clean to Punk? Isn't that a match that people might pay to see on PPV later on? Not anymore of course, since you just gave it to them for free on TV. Anyways, a good match from two guys who know what they are doing in there **3/4.
