The Money in the Bank main event saw an emotion-filled contest between CM Punk and John Cena.
At SummerSlam, they delivered again.
Thw WWE Universe was witness to a submission wrestling clinic that went both ways.
It wasn't a submission that finished the match but it was great to see Cena attempt to put his doubters in their respective places. The crowd still serenaded Cena with a "You Can't Wrestle" chant, as custom in every Cena match.
Triple H also showed his authority as referee. Both Cena and Punk were about to be counted out. Triple H hit nine with no signs of movement from either competitor. Instead of a second count-out finish on a major WWE PPV, HHH left the ring, picked up Cena and Punk one at a time and threw them both back into the ring. He wasn't letting the most important match in WWE history end on a double-countout.
As the match progressed, Punk laid out Cena with the GTS and Cena kicked out.
Punk went to the top and delivered an elbow, which got a big "Randy Savage" chant from the crows.
The finish may have tarnished a great contest as Punk delivered another GTS and pinned Cena to win the undisputed WWE Title.
The reason the title of this slide has an asterisk next to "undisputed" is because Cena had his foot on the rope. Cena protested but it didn't work, Punk was still the champion.
That was until...
