Triple H announced WWE Champion John Cena vs. Alberto Del Rio vs. CM Punk in a Triple Threat Hell in a Cell Match, promised to fire someone (WATCH)
Triple H was steamed. Less than 24 hours earlier, at Night of Champions, WWE’s Chief Operating Officer competed against CM Punk. Although he prevailed in the bout and retained his position as COO, The Game was nonetheless furious about how it all went down. Not only did The Miz & R-Truth attempt to interfere in the bout, an already terminated Kevin Nash marched through the crowd and amubushed both men.
Perhaps feeling badly about how events transpired the night before, Triple H informed his now respected rival, Punk, that he was being included in a Triple Threat Hell in a Cell Match against newly crowned WWE Champion John Cena and Alberto Del Rio.
The Voice of the Voiceless appeared pleased to hear he would receive a title opportunity in two weeks, but he was hardly finished making a statement. He began to expound on who he thought was behind the odd incidents of the previous several weeks.
Before Punk could reveal the full extent of his hypothesis, WWE’s Executive Vice President of Talent Relations, John Laurinaitis emerged. The Second City Savior then explained that he felt the Executive VP was the mastermind behind the shenanigans. When The Game asked Laurinaitis if Punk was telling the truth, however, Laurinaitis appeared evasive. When Executive VP attempted to fire the anti-establishment Superstar, Triple H immediately reversed the decision. WWE’s COO did insist, however, that by the end of the night someone would be fired.
WWE Champion John Cena & CM Punk def. The Miz & R-Truth (WATCH: PART 1 | PART 2)
Before WWE Champion John Cena and CM Punk join Alberto Del Rio in a first-ever Triple Threat Hell in a Cell Match in two weeks, the pair teamed up to face The Miz & R-Truth in the night’s main event match. The contest was arranged by WWE Chief Operating Officer Triple H as punishment for the two attacking a referee as well as The Game himself at Night of Champions. The two conspiracy theorists appeared to be putting up a respectable offense against their formidable foes when The Second City Savior delivered a grave GTS to The Cleveland Screamer in his hometown to lay him out for the victory.
After the bell, The Game emerged to wish one Superstar the best in their future endeavors. Actually, make that two Superstars. The Game fired both Miz & Truth, who looked gutted by the decision. As “The Awesome Truth” absorbed the news, they grew enraged and attacked Triple H from behind in the locker room area. As they lashed out on the COO, various Superstars broke up the ruckus and tossed Miz & Truth from the arena.
