WWE Money in the Bank Results: CM Punk Wins WWE Title

Bryan FloryAnalyst IJuly 17, 2011

Money in the Bank just wrapped up and CM Punk did what we all had hoped: win the WWE Title.

Punk and John Cena went for nearly 40 minutes and put on a clinic (although there were some botches).

What really made the match though was the crowd, which was 99.9 percent behind Punk and gave it a "big fight" feel.

The ovation they gave Punk throughout the match was one of the loudest in wrestling history.

Vince McMahon tried to get involved as expected at the end of the match, but Cena stopped him and John Laurinitas from getting involed, which ultimately led to him getting the GTS.

McMahon then called for Alberto Del Rio to cash in the Money in the Bank briefcase (while using Jerry Lawler's headset for some reason), but Punk kicked Del Rio in the head before the bell could even ring.

Punk then escaped to celebrate with the crowd as the PPV went off the air.

My take: I would think this would have to mean that CM Punk is re-signed.

McMahon will probably start off Raw tomorrow pleading with Punk to come back and how he will give him anything to re-sign and that he can be the star now that Cena is fired.

Then, there will probably be some sort of stipulation to re-instate Cena along with Punk that ultimately makes everything that happened a moot point, but nonetheless, tonight was one of the best nights in recent wrestling history.

I know one thing is for sure, I will definitely be tuning in to Raw tomorrow night.
