CM Punk defeats John Cena, Alberto Del Rio Cashes in at Summerslam 2011

The biggest match of the years, possibly in the history of WWE took place. It was WWE Champion John Cena vs. WWE Champion CM Punk for the Undisputed WWE Championship. Even before the match started Punk had some choice words for Stephanie McMahon backstage. The match itself was a classic. Both men put on a great match tonight and in the end Triple H’s costly mistake as special guest referee allowed CM Punk to become Undisputed WWE Champion.

However the night wasn’t over yet. Out of nowhere comes Kevin Nash and blindsides Punk with the Jackknife Powerbomb. This allows Alberto Del Rio to come out and cash his Money in the Bank and become the new Undisputed WWE Champion to end the night.

Other results on on the show include:

-Kofi Kingston,Rey Mysterio and John Morrison defeated Alberto Del Rio, R-Truth and The Miz
-Mark Henry defeated Sheamus by count out
-Kelly Kelly (c) (with Eve) defeated Beth Phoenix (with Natalya)
-Wade Barrett defeated Daniel Bryan
-Randy Orton defeated Christian (c), Orton becomes new World Heavyweight Champion

I really enjoyed the Orton vs. Christian match. It started out with a surprise appearance by Edge telling his best friend that he was a crying whining baby. Christian thought Edge would be in his corner but it wasn’t to be. The finish was incredible and I can’t even put it into words how brutal it was.

All the matches were solid and we even saw a cameo appearance with Ron Artest and Jimmy Hart. It was a nice solid pay-per-view. There are a lot of questions and storylines that are going to come out of this and I will be curious to see how they play out. What a great summer it has been for WWE, what a great Summerslam that will go down as controversial and shocking.
