Paul Heyman: People are pissed CM Punk got pinned, but if he's going to lose that's the way to do it

via www.wwe.com

In the wake of WWE Night of Champions last night (Sept. 18, 2011), a lot of questions are being asked regarding the booking of the show, namely why it was that CM Punk was made to lay down for a Triple H pinfall.

There are quite a few folks that believe Punk was "buried" and is well on his way to losing all the luster he once had just a few short months ago. Paul Heyman chimed in with his thoughts on Twitter last night:

"I thought CM Punk and HHH (and all the others involved) put on one helluva show. It took 3 Pedigrees and a Jack Knife to beat Punk. I know a lot of people are pissed CM Punk got pinned, but if you're going to get beat, isn't that the way to do it? As with everyone else, it's all in the follow-up (right, TNA?). Let's see what they do tomorrow night on Raw."

As I remarked last night, Punk and Triple H went back and forth and had one hell of a match. This was no burial; Triple H took just as much of Punk's offense as Punk did Triple H's. Not to mention, Punk kicked out of a Pedigree with no assistance or outside interference.

Believe it or don't but that's not something Triple H just lets anyone do.

And yes, it took gobs of interference and attacks from all sides to finally get a pinfall for either man. As Heyman said, Punk took multiple pedigrees and a jack knife powerbomb from Kevin Nash. I believe he also took R-Truth's finisher. That's three separate finishers, one of them twice, from three separate guys.

Punk wasn't buried last night; in fact, he was made to look just as strong as Triple H. The burial, if there is one, will come in the weeks ahead. Stay tuned.
