Obviously it didn't deliver, because it didn't happen.
Sheamus comes out, Punk comes out, says no and then you get Jack Swagger of all people, no surprise that Q5 did nothing.
And checking the Raw discussion thread, Punk walked out at 21:08.
So don't bother attributing any lack of rise to Punk, when it's quite possible that the first 7/8 minutes of Q5 went up, before a drop when Swags appeared.
