Re: Please shed some light on why The Shield got involved in CM Punk Vs The Rock.
They done it because they were paid to by Heyman at least (and probably Punk too but he may deny knowledge of it). They kept the lights out because in Punk and Heyman's mind that would be inconclusive enough to prove that it was The Shield who interfered.
But Vince threw the old "can't call what you can't see" line out the window and accepted that it was The Shield who done it.
What I want to know is... and no one touched on this that I recall - why didn't Punk just do the obvious heel tactic and get disqualified in a traditional way. The match had countouts and DQs applicable as far as I could tell so why didn't he take that easy way out?
I could understand Punk wanting to beat Rock due to the feud and such but when it clearly wasn't working he coulda just grabbed a chair and whacked the Rock with it - problem over. Presumably if he did do that Vince would restart the match anyway, but why wouldn't Punk's character at least try that get out clause?
It's why I hate the whole DQ title situation... every heel would, by their character's standards, use this get out every time they could.
