WWE Raw Backstage Fallout, featuring Rey Mysterio, Sin Cara, Layla, Wade Barrett, Kofi Kingston and R-Truth: September 17, 2012
Love the focus on tag team wrestling. The belts mean something on Kane and Daniel Bryan. Throw in the Prim Time Players, Sin Cara and Rey Mysterio, and Kofi Kingston and R-Truth, and the WWE has a real tag division.
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.
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.
