WWE Night of Champions: HHH Beats CM Punk, Kevin Nash Returns
BUT WAIT...suddenly, the Miz and R-Truth charge the ring and lay a beating on both guys. HHH takes the Skull Crushing Finale and CM Punk gets Little Jimmy or Shut Up or whatever he's calling that move this week. They drag Punk on top of HHH and the referee counts...to two. Uh oh. Miz gets in Scott Armstrong's face and Armstrong actually blocks a Miz punch before getting beat down by both heels.
John Laurinaitis makes his way to ringside as HHH and Punk recover to get rid of the heels. HHH jumps on Punk and delivers the Pedigree but there's no referee. Another one comes charging from the locker room but Laurinaitis stops him and orders the new ref to attend to Scott Armstrong.
Punk uses this time to recover and hit Go 2 Sleep on Hunter and NOW it's just fine for the new ref to enter but R-Truth breaks the count at two. Punk nails Truth with Go 2 Sleep as this match is in danger of being overwhelmed by overbooking. The crowd is absolutely dead for some reason.
Punk springboards back into the ring but this time HHH is waiting and nails him with a Pedigree...for two. That was a great false finish because I was totally buying that the match was over. That move ALMOST woke the crowd up too.
BUT WAIT (again)...now Kevin Nash makes his way through the crowd and knocks out both guys in the ring. He beats the hell out of HHH and goes for the Jackknife but Punk attacks and takes the powerbomb.
Nash politely clears the announce table but HHH knocks him out with a sledgehammer he grabbed from under the ring. This match really needs Jim Ross to oversell all the chaos and put this over as a major event. HHH gets back in the ring, hits the Pedigree and this time it's enough to get the win.
-Doesn't anyone find it odd that the main event of Night of Champions was a non-title match? Anyways, minor things aside, the match was getting really good before the booking totally overwhelmed everything at the end. This was the very definition of an overbooked match as they threw everything but the kitchen sink into one match which totally clouds this storyline even more.
Actually, so much stuff happened during the match that the crowd had no idea whether to cheer or boo at the end of the match and just kind of stood there watching in silence. The match was technically fine and entertaining but the ending was nine different kinds of screwy and is really going to confuse the casual viewer. As expected though, it was a really good match and I guess it will make people watch Raw, so that's a good thing ***3/4.
