CM Punk finally got his hands on Paul Heyman inside (well, technically on top of) Hell in a Cell, and The Straight Edge Superstar followed that up on Raw with another victory over Heyman’s resident muscle, Ryback. Under Street Fight rules determined by a WWE App vote, the longtime rivals battled with fists and implements in equal measure, Punk striking first with a Kendo stick and Ryback (fighting without the absent Heyman) retaliating with a big spinebuster. “The Big Guy” set up a table for the coup de grace, yet Punk struck back and planted The Human Wrecking Ball with a flying elbow through the wood, following up by Anaconda Vise-ing Ryback into submission.
Punk’s celebration was over in the blink of an eye, however, before he suffered the same fate as Daniel Bryan earlier in the night when The Wyatt Family emerged from the shadows to take the former WWE Champion down. The buzzards, clearly, are circling. The question is why.
