The COO’s position was on the line.
CM Punk had challenged Triple H to put his COO title on the line because he believed that he was the one behind the conspiracy that had cost him his championship.
Apparently, Punk’s words made it too personal for Triple H to pass up, thus, agreeing to the match as long as Punk agreed to the stipulation.
That stipulation was that the match was going to be a No Holds Barred match.
Once the match was about to end, both men had already put their bodies on the line, not budging or showing any weakness.
It could’ve gone either way but one GTS and Pedigree after the other, eventually, one was to come out on top while the other was to be down and possibly out.
And it was to be true, as Triple H defeated CM Punk after he performed a pedigree on him.
But before Triple H won the match, signs of the conspiracy appeared.
R-Truth and the Miz interfered because they felt that there was a conspiracy against them and that Triple H had planned it against them on purpose.
So what did they do?
They attacked both Triple H and CM Punk.
Then they put CM Punk over Triple H as he was down for the count.
Once the referee was about to hit the three-count, HHH kicked out. The match was not over and the Miz and R-Truth considered this as a part of the conspiracy as they attacked the referee and took him out of the match.
The referee wasn’t there to count the pin as CM Punk hit the GTS on Triple H.
This then led to John Laurinaitis’ appearance with another referee but before he could count the pin, Laurinaitis asked the ref to check on the other ref, preventing the pin count in the process.
Eventually, the referee counted the pin only for it to be ruined by R-Truth who wanted Triple H to lose his job as COO yet by preventing Punk from winning, he allowed Triple H to keep his job.
The battle eventually ensued and Kevin Nash eventually appeared.
He attacked both men but right when he was going to damage Triple H more, he was struck by HHH’s trademark sledgehammer.
A few seconds later, Punk felt the pedigree and lost the match.
Triple H kept his job as the COO of the company and the conspiracy was still living.
The problem is, was the ending the right way to end the show?
Think about it.
If Punk had won the match, Triple H wouldn’t have been COO right now and Vince McMahon may have most likely been here right now, putting an end to the conspiracy in the process by simply firing everyone that seemed to be a part of the conspiracy
But that didn’t happen.
Then, CM Punk could’ve also bragged about how he got rid of Triple H and if Vince were back, he could then become the same CM Punk that caused trouble for the WWE and made many people interested at around the time of the Money in the Bank PPV.
He could’ve cut more of the promos that made the MiTB PPV interesting and stayed stable at the top.
He could’ve been the perfect anti-hero if it all went well.
Instead, none of that happened.
Instead, we received the clusterfuck ending that those of us who saw the PPV actually witnessed.
So, was the ending to CM Punk/Triple H match the right way to go?
I think not.
I think that the WWE could’ve done better with the way they concluded this match. I think that there was a better way to end it……………with a CM Punk victory.
But, I guess it wasn’t meant to be.
You could’ve done better WWE……you could’ve done better.
