The Undertaker defeats CM Punk inside Hell in a Cell: October 4, 2009
Three years ago, CM Punk found himself defending a championship in Hell in a Cell against an unbeatable monster — The Undertaker. Sounds familiar.

Triple H defeats CM Punk in a no-disqualification match, keeps his job as WWE COO: September 18, 2011
Kevin Nash interfered, jackknifing Punk and leaving him easy pickings for Triple H, who Pedigreed him for the win. It’s frustrating that Punk never got his win over Nash. Then again, Big Daddy Cool would have likely made a mockery of it. So maybe Punk lucked out.
Had to wrap up this recap quick since Night of Champions is on live now.

Triple H retains the WWE Championship against John Cena at Night of Champions: June 29, 2008
This wasn’t a bad card … but it wasn’t an exciting one. I’d rather have watched the dark match — Jeff Hardy beating MVP — than most of the under-card. And really, Jeff Hardy couldn’t get on the pay-per-view?
Triple H retained the WWE Championship in the main event against John Cena. There was an odd point in the match in which the Game locked the Doctor of Thuganomics in a Crippler Crossface. Ultimately, Cena went down to a Pedigree. 
The co-main event featured a rematch of the previous year’s World Heavyweight Championship match between Edge and Batista. The Rated R Superstar retained again — this time due to help from Vickie and Chavo Guerrero.

In other matches:
WWE Tag Team Champions the Miz and John Morrison defeated Finlay and Hornswoggle.

John Cena retains the WWE Championship at Vengeance: Nights of Champions: June 24, 2007
The first Night of Champions will always be seen as the event that Chris Benoit no-showed on the weekend of the double-murder suicide. Benoit was scheduled to wrestle CM Punk for the vacant ECW Championship. After claiming that he was taking care of his sick family and skipping that weekend’s house shows, Benoit flat out no-showed the pay-per-view. John Morrison filled in and won the ECW Title. The next day, the world learned of the killings.
What’s also noticeable about this card is how many guys are either a) dead (Umaga and Lance Cade) and b) out of the company (too many to name). There are just six guys left on the roster — John Cena, CM Punk, Randy Orton, Santino Marella, Mick Foley and Booker T — from this card, which was just five years ago. 
Cena retained the WWE Championship in a five-pack challenge by pinning Foley. Also in the match: Booker, Orton and Bobby Lashley.
In the other main event match, Edge retained the World Heavyweight Championship by defeating Batista by count out.

The latest Are You Serious? featuring Josh Matthews, Randy Orton, the Miz, John Morrison, and the Repo Man: September 2, 2012

Poor Barry Darsow. He went from a great gimmick (Smash) to some of the worst in wrestling history (Repo Man, Stewart Payne — the evil wrestling golf pro).

CM Punk unifies the WWE Championship, defeating John Cena at SummerSlam ‘11: August 14, 2011

But the Straight Edge Superstar wouldn’t leave Los Angeles with the championship. Kevin Nash ambushed Punk, delivering a devastating Jackknife power bomb. The cunning Alberto Del Rio capitalized, cashing in his Money in the Bank briefcase. Del Rio hit an enziguri kick to the back of the head, ensuring Punk was down for the count.

Faces and heels joined forces (I love when this happens). Cena Supermanned his way to victory, becoming the sole survivor.

John Cena retains the WWE Championship against Randy Orton at SummerSlam ‘07: August 26, 2007

The Cena-Orton rivalry still felt fresh in ‘07. Not so much years later.

There was a lot of new blood on the card. CM Punk’s first SummerSlam wasn’t a success. The Straight Edge Superstar lost to ECW Champion John Morrison.

Intercontinental Champion Umaga defeated Carlito and Mr. Kennedy. 

There were also some familiar faces. Triple H beat King Booker T. Rey Mysterio won a rematch of the previous year’s SummerSlam with Chavo Guerrero.

Chris Benoit’s last match was five years ago today (June 19, 2007). Five days later, Benoit was found dead. He’d killed his wife, Nancy (aka wrestling valet, Woman), and their son, Daniel, in a murder-suicide at the family Atlanta-area home.

Benoit’s last match was on a broadcast of WWE’s version of ECW. He wrestled Elijah Burke (now, “The Pope” D’Angelo Dinero in TNA), winning the match and advancing to face CM Punk for the vacant ECW World Heavyweight Title at the Vengeance: Night of Champions pay-per-view.
