CM Punk responded to Paul Heyman
CM Punk is not an unreasonable man (though as the gentleman in the front row can attest, it’s clearly not advisable to boo him while he’s talking): Paul Heyman asked for an apology, and to the shock of the WWE Universe, he took him up on that offer.
Well, kind of.
As it turns out, the only thing Punk was sorry about was that he didn’t get to dismember Paul Heyman like he had promised when he got his hands on him at SummerSlam. Punk’s proposed solution – they settle their score then and there – was met with an ultimatum from Heyman: Leave the ring while he could, or Heyman would send Curtis Axel down to finish what Brock Lesnar started.
CM Punk surprised Paul Heyman and Brock Lesnar
When one agrees to battle with Paul Heyman, of wits or otherwise, one is never walking into a fair fight. Happily, CM Punk knew this to be true the second he agreed to tangle with the mad scientist (he didn’t tweet that photo of Admiral Ackbar for nothing), and he was more than prepared when Heyman summoned Brock Lesnar to the ring before their tilt was set to begin to make the fight 2-on-1.

Daring Punk to play the “stupid hero,” Heyman beckoned the former WWE Champion to the ring, but didn’t count on the fact that – IT’S A TRAP!! – Punk was already there. The Second City Saint proved himself smarter than the average beast when he emerged from beneath the ring to strike Brock with a ring camera and steel chair. Heyman amscrayed immediately, and was only able to escape the furious Punk when Curtis Axel ran interference and ate a Go to Sleep in his boss’ stead. Not bad for the self-proclaimed “Best.” Now all that’s left is to slay the Beast.
