CM Punk & Intercontinental Champion Curtis Axel def. The Prime Time Players

A win is a win, but Paul Heyman’s proverbial roost is in a state of unrest following Curtis Axel’s series of shenanigans on CM Punk during their match against The Prime Time Players. Things were tense between Heyman’s two acolytes from the beginning after Axel tagged into the match and refused to let Punk back in. Axel seemed to have the bout in hand at first, but his gloating got the better of him when Titus O’Neil & Darren Young reclaimed the advantage, isolating Axel from Punk in the corner.

A big boot to “The Big Deal” gave Axel the gap he needed to reach The Second City Saint and Punk showed the youngblood how it’s done, making good on his word to take out both Players single-handedly. But Axel was not to be outdone, tagging his way into the match on an unsuspecting Punk and stealing the pin from The Straight Edge Superstar after he had already put Young down with the Go to Sleep. Needless to say, Punk was not exactly eager to take part in the victory celebration, leaving in a huff while Axel preened in the ring.
