I don't think you can say it went nowhere, Regal clearly went out to further weaken the arm he tore up a year ago and focused repeately on it throughout his control, to the point where it dominated his entire offence (even the exploder suplex had the arm trapped for Ambrose to fall onto). Then Ambrose in a blink of an eye managed to take control with one move, leave Regal concussed and then toyed with him until Regal could stand no more. If they'd have wrestled 15 minutes longer and had Regal make a comeback and ignore the arm then you could say it was ignored, as it was Regal never got a chance to complete his work because Ambrose's transition spot fucked him up and rendered him practically immobile. And Ambrose sold all the armwork terrificly to signify its damage and purpose, and again it tied in on a psychological level with Regal taunting Ambrose about the injury he inflicted upon him the last time they wrestled.
I also found the finish captivating, you didn't need a prolonged beatdown there. It was like the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre, the teased violence was enough that you didn't need an extended gorefest, Ambrose having Regal bloodied and barely conscious whilst showing no signs of letting up was what the entire feud had built to and made you think Regal was about to be destroyed before your eyes. And of course, Ross and Rhodes made sure to signify the threat Ambrose posed without him even really doing much, it was just perfect.
