When you talk of the Reality Era, it definitely reached a breaking point after this match.
The match itself caused more controversy than what the match was intended to do, that is, if your name is John Cena.
Lets start with the match itself. It began with Alberto Del Rio getting attacked by both John Cena and CM Punk. The match continued with one man getting attacked outside so the two other guys in the match can work each other.
When Punk was outside the ring, he introduced a table and set it up outside the ring. His intention was to bulldog Cena through it, however, he was tossed against the cage and then Cena walked into a chair assault by Del Rio.
Punk returned for some offense, nailed a Randy Savage-esque elbow drop on Del Rio, but when he tried it on Cena, Del Rio knocked Punk through the very table he set up moments earlier.
It was just a flurry of offense by all three men, but then, Ricardo Rodriguez interjected by attacking a referee outside the Cell and unlocked the door.
He introduced the steel pipe and Cena cut him off at the pass, delivering an Attitude Adjustment to Del Rio's ring announcer before Del Rio used the steel pipe to knock Cena out of the Cell, snagging the key and locking the door.
Del Rio was in control of a vulnerable Punk, who was still dazed after being put through that table. Cena was coming to and realized that he was locked out of the cage.
He watched Punk fight valiantly but to no avail as Del Rio used the pipe and captured the WWE Championship.
That was when hell came to Hell in a Cell.
Cena came in and attempted an assault on Del Rio, but Miz and R-Truth came in with hoodies and began their assault as the cage lowered to the ground.
Miz and R-Truth attacked everything and everyone inside the Cell, as the locker room emptied to try and get in, but the door was locked. Triple H came out, angered by the situation as an official came out with a bolt cutter to open the door.
Cops showed up and as soon as the door opened, the two "fired" Superstars surrendered.
As they were brought out, Triple H attacked the two men, and had to be restrained as the PPV ended.
We have a new WWE Champion, but to steal a catch phrase from Jim Ross, business just picked up.
Result: Alberto Del Rio wins WWE Championship by pinfall
