The main event of the SummerSlam pay-per-view (PPV) last night (Sun., Aug. 19, 2012) at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California, featured Brock Lesnar forcing Triple H to tap out to his "devastating kimura lock."

It was the same finish we saw when "The Brockness Monster" attacked "The Game" back in April to set up a match between the two. It was explained then that Lesnar broke Trips' arm. Now? The same.

From WWE.com:

It has also been released that The King of Kings broke his left arm in the same place that he did when Brock attacked him on the April 30 episode of Raw, an assault that lit the fuse on their tremendous rivalry. Although Triple H had initially refused medical attention last night, an examination this morning confirmed the severity of the injury.

The Wrestling Observer has noted this is an angle done to make it special when Triple H inevitably returns again, possibly even for a rematch against Lesnar down the road. We know the angle hasn't been wrapped up just yet because Lesnar is scheduled to open Raw tonight (follow along by clicking here) with Paul Heyman and Shawn Michaels will be appearing via satellite.

Stay tuned.
