Notes: At Capitol Punishment last month (6/19/11), Orton pinned Christian in the WHC title
match after an RKO while Christian’s left leg was underneath the rope. The next week on Smackdown, Christian confronted Long about getting a rematch because he was screwed out of the title and deserves another rematch. The contract states that if Orton gets disqualified, counted out, referee with bad efficiating or interuption, he automatically becomes WHC Sheamus interupts the contract signing on the 7/1/11 edition of Smackdown. “You can’t beat me,” Christian says at the contract signing.
November 22, 2010 on Raw (Orlando, Florida); Orton retains his WWE Championship aganst Wade Barrett in a brutal match. But then the Miz enters the arena and cashes in his MITB. The Miz pins Orton in a WWE Championship match after reversing an RKO into Skull Crushing Finale. Michael Cole, Jerry Lawler, & CM Punk were all on the commentary team commentated while the Miz tried to win the WWE title. The match lasted 2 minutes 44 seconds. The expression on the “Miz girl” is priceless. After the promo, Korpela is holding the Raw briefcase until Stanford says “hey Kelly Kelly,” and Korpela drops the case.

Notes: A 6-man tag team match on Raw (Boston, MA on 7/11/11; I was there) between Kingston,
Bourne, & Riley versus R-Truth, Miz, & Swagger took place when Riley pinned Swagger, but Miz attacked Riley after the match. Alberto Del Rio then enters and takes a ladder destroying everyone in his path.
WWE Championship Match: John Cena (c) vs. CM Punk
Time: 7:54pm to 7:58pm (3 minutes 47 seconds)
Notes: CM Punk talking about how he was suspended on Raw 6/28/11. He also called everyone in the WWE a bunch of “ass kissers.” Most of this was said on the 7/11/11 edition of Raw. The first ever contract signing took place in Boston, MA when Mr. McMahon sat in front of a demanding CM Punk who wanted his face on everything, his own ice-cream bar. CM Punk says “you like the Red Sox, are a dynasty, you have become the New York Yankees.” Cena slaps CM Punk as he retreats to the stage as he says “this Sunday, say goodbye to the WWE title, say goodbye to John Cena, and say goodbye to CM Punk.” If Cena loses tonight, he will be fired.
