You could see this coming for awhile. The first domino that had to fall was John Cena winning the Royal Rumble which he did. Once that happen you knew it was likely that The Rock would defeat CM Punk.
There was a little twist to the match though.
The Shield interfered when the lights mysteriously went out in the arena (funny how that always happen at the perfect time). After a Triple Powebomb on the announce table, CM Punk covered The Rock and the match appeared to be over.
Until Vince McMahon came down and restarted the match.
Next thing you know Spinebuster followed by the People’s Elbow and The Rock became an 8-time WWE Champion. Here is some video below.
