THE  WINNER:  THE  BIG  SHOW.

WWE  Champion  CM  Punk  explained  what  the  term  “pipe  bomb”  meant.  He  stated  that  a  “pipe  bomb”  means  honesty.  He  stated  that  he  meant  everything  he  said  on Monday,  June  27,  2011  in  Las  Vegas,  Nevada  (Remember  that?).  He  stated  that  in  the  WWE,  the  more  popular  you  are, the  more  money  you  make.  He  mentioned  how  John  Cena  had  a  terrible  year  last  year,  but  still  gets  multiple  title  shots.  He  also  stated  how  Daniel  Bryan  was  forced  to degrade  himself,  how  Brodus  Clay  was  made  to  dance  in  the  ring  with  small  children,  and  how  Tyson  Kidd  is  ignored.  He  also stated  that  there  are  two  types  of  people  in  this  world:  those  who  were  born  to  be  in the  spotlight,  and  those  who  pay  to  see  the  people.  CM  Punk  then  told  the  fans,  “You  do not  matter!  What  you  want  doesn’t  matter!”.

As  CM  Punk  continued  his  rant, The  Rock  arrived!!!  The  Rock  labeled  Punk  delusional.  He  told  Punk  that  when  he  won  the  title,  he  didn’t  reject  the  people,  the  people  rejected  him.  He  also  told  Punk  that  he  looks  like  “Popeye  on  crack”,  and  that  he  doesn’t  matter.  He  stated  that  at  the  Royal  Rumble,  he  won’t  stop  him  from  winning  the  WWE  Championship.  Punk  told  Rock  that  whenever  he  returns,  he  will  fight  him.  Rock  then  told  Punk  to  get  two  brand  new  tattoos  of  what  will  happen  to  him  at  the  Royal  Rumble,  and  delivered  his  finisher,  the  Rock  Bottom,  to  CM  Punk!!!

Match  #’s  1  and  8  are  the  highlight  matches  of  the  night!!!

Antonio  Cesaro  lifting  up  The  Great  Khali  was  the  highlight  moment  of the night.

ANALYSIS:  The  only  saving  graces  were  CM  Punk,  The  Rock,  The  Shield,  The  3MB,   RyBack,  Natalya  Neidhart  and  Ricky  “The  Dragon”  Steamboat.  Enough  Said.
