Brock Lesnar shocked the WWE Universe by taking down fan-favorite Triple-H in the main event of SummerSlam 2012, which took place inside the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California on Sunday night. After losing the match, Triple-H slowly made his way out of the ring as the crowd cheered him on, hinting at a possible final stand for The Game.
In the other major match of the night, CM Punk retained his WWE Championship title in a Triple Threat match against John Cena and The Big Show. All three had their moments during the match, but the decisive blwo came when Cena, the West Newbury, Massachusetts native, delivered an Attitude Adjustment to Big Show, leaving him motionless in the middle of the ring. As Cena went for the pin, CM Punk pushed him out of the ring and stole the pin.
