    wtf @ kevin nash!

  2. Attitude Era 12 says:

    Kevin Nash…. wasn’t expecting that

  3. dc guy says:

    Nash wow yes love it keep him on tv pls

  4. santyago says:

    A double screw-job, both for Cena and Punk. Can’t wait for the next development of this!

  5. aag44 says:

    Not going to lie, I had NO IDEA what the hell was going during the PPV’s last few minutes. If it had been only Punk winning, I would’ve said that the ending was predictable. Had it ended with Del Rio cashing MITB, I would’ve said predictable. But Nash’s appearance seriously threw me off…

  6. Ian says:

    And tomorrow night on RAW we will find out that it was all Triple H’s plan in the first place…so they have taken a great storyline and build up and pretty much took a big ole steaming crap on it in one night…sorry but as an old school wrestling fan I do not like this one bit and wish that they would allow the MitB winners to have more balls, its getting a bit old with the entire cashing it in after someone has not only wrestled a grueling match but then got randomly beat up.

    With that being said though, I see Del Rios as the ultimate transitional champion or short term champions because I guarantee he loses it after they get back from Mexico and the only reason he won it is because they are going to Mexico soon.

  7. Ian says:

    And BTW Kevin Nash sucks…he hasn’t been near decent in a decade and can barely move…him interfering was ridiculous.

  8. ted says:

    Kevin Nash wow and you wwe marks c ry about tna using old guys

  9. jlatimer11 says:


    Not only has the majority of the MITB cash-ins gone down exactly like tonight, I can’t find one instance where someone has cashed in the briefcase and lost.

    It’s way too predictable.

  10. drxfeelgood says:

    This is ONE case, compared to a large portion of TNA’s roster. I mean seriously, Sting and Angle are the main event right now!
    Idiot. It’s TNA marks like you that make TNA fans (like myself) look stupid as sh*t.

  11. Ronald B. says:

    HHH vs Nash

    Hell in a cell!

  12. f u says:

    Who cares wwe will always b on top lol great ppv

  13. Michael says:

    All MITB cash ins have been successful thus far. At this rate we will see another “streak” to go along with the Dead Man’s Mania streak.

  14. Jon says:

    I seriously don’t understand why everyone is complaining about how the mitb briefcase is being used. If you have a title shot wouldn’t you want to use it in an opportune time? What they’re doing is just logical. Sure it’s predictable but it works. Imagine having an opportunity like that and instead waste it by challenging the champ when he’s prepared, then the challenger would just look stupid compared to the previous mitb winners.

    Business wise I understand the concept as well. The mitb briefcase is a way for the head office to gauge the reaction of the crowd to its winners (who are usually those poised to leap from midcard to headliner). If the champion works then they have a new headliner and they just need to build him up properly, if not then they can just keep bringing up that he’s a fluke.

  15. Jon says:

    Besides if you guys complain to much they might make Daniel Bryan the first mitb winner to lose just to stop you guys from complaining too much

  16. I would have imagine shawn michaels coming out and sweet chin music punk.

  17. kidd-cage says:

    out of the 4 major ppv’s of the wwe, Summerslam was very good and better then the disappointing Royal Rumble & WrestleMania 27 this year.

  18. James says:

    That ending confused the hell outta me. I really wish they would have let Punk keep the belt.

    I really don’t see this hype around del rio that most of the internet wrestling community sees but meh whatever.
