I'm not saying the match was bad. In fact, I think it was great, but as soon as things began to look messy, I got lost.
We witnessed impressive performances by both CM Punk and Triple H and the back and forth action was great.
However, things got messy when R-Truth and the Miz came out of nowhere and attacked both superstars. It was obvious that Miz and Truth were coming to cost HHH the match as they dragged Punk over HHH so that the referee could make the count.
However, HHH was able to kick out at the two count. Miz was upset about it and he attacked the referee, Scott Armstrong, who surprisingly blocked Miz's punch attempt and gave him one instead.
But in the end, team Awesome Truth beat the referee and pushed him out of the ring.
John Laurinaitis came in next, but HHH and Punk attacked Miz and Truth and cleared the ring. Next HHH hit the pedigree and waited for the count. As another referee was running, Laurinaitis stopped him. But when Punk hit the GTS and pinned HHH, John told the referee to count.
This was when the dumbest thing happened.
Truth pulled Punk away and attacked him. Okay, Truth, didn't you come in to make sure HHH lost? Punk was one second away from the win. Why did you pull him away? Is this another conspiracy theory?
John Laurinaitis texted someone on his phone and moments later, Kevin Nash, who was fired by HHH, returned.
Nash attacked HHH and then Punk after being attacked. Nash dropped him with a jackknife powerbomb.
HHH nailed Nash with a sledgehammer later and entered the ring to finish off Punk.
Yeah, I know, that was messy and I'm sure you were lost.
But again the match wasn't bad, and even Paul Heyman said via his twitter account, "I thought @CMPunk and HHH (and all the others involved) put on one helluva show. It took 3 Pedigrees and a Jack Knife to beat Punk."
I hope I don't hear people saying Punk was buried. Unfortunately, I already have. In fact, I've been reading this even after he won the WWE Title.
