Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread
If I were to argue, Punk's hot streak ended @ HIAC 2011 when he jobbed to Del Rio without any outside help for Del Rio (in a Cell Match0 , so essentially clean. After Summerslam he was still molten hot because everybody thought he was going to be involved in a COMPELLING storyline that got him back to the title scene, and the loss vs Trips didn't hurt him at all IMO, because it was all a part of the storyline.
When HIAC went off the air I was like "Yeah... They fucked him up" . I swear that this title reign is an APOLOGY from WWE to Punk for fucking up his momentum in order to get Del Rio heat and the HHH-Nash feud started. There's NO fault to Punk on that one.
"He's not the biggest. He was never the strongest. He was never the fastest. He was overlooked. He went in the sixth round. So with that being said, all of the intangibles that a quarterback is supposed to have, they overlooked it with him because it was burning from inside of him" - Ray Lewis on Tom Brady
