Ultimately, it was Cena impressive top rope Spanish suplex that would conclude this brutal bout. Yet, it wasnt Cena arm that was raised in victory at the finish of the night.
After Cena began celebrating what appeared to be his 11th WWE Championship victory, referee Chad Patton noted that Cena shoulders were also flat on the canvas as the Cenation leader had Punk in a pinned. As explained by ring announcer Justin Roberts, the match had officially ended in a draw with CM Punk retaining the WWE Title.
The tactic was working, inspiring visitor commentator John Bradshaw Layfield to note that Punk was wrestling a perfect match & had gone in to this bout with a thought-out game plan. Every time Cena tried to shift momentum, whether with a series of shoulder tackles or along with his Knuckle Shuffle fist drop, Punk was seemingly step ahead. Heyman, whose current association with The Second City Saint has yet to be revealed, looked on approvingly from ringside.
The smirk that Punk wore at the finish of the night as they strode up the way in ramp WWE Title & Paul Heyman in tow mirrored the they wore at the beginning of the bout. Clad in first place New York Yankeesesque pinstripes to rile up the last place Boston Red Sox faithful in attendance, The Straight Edge Superstar set a deliberate pace as they kept his powerhouse opponent off his feet. By taking Cena size advantage out of the equation, Punk clearly surmised, the bout would be a manner of wearing Cena down before finishing him off with a Go to Sleep or his signature submission hold, the Anaconda Vise.
As Punk tried to wear down the challenger with submission after submission, it was Cena pure strength that helped the Cenation leader escape Punk holds, much to the delight of Cena relatives watching the action from the front row. Cena was not only driven by a desire to one time again hoist the WWE Title above his head, but they was also determined to finish Punk aggressive & risky quest for respect at any cost. Would that desire be , though.
