Former WWE star Paul Heyman had the following to say following last night’s Night of Champions PPV: “I had to flip from watching Inglourious Basterds to see HHH vs CM Punk. Fill in your own punch line for that one, folks! I thought they (and all the others involved) put on one helluva show. It took 3 Pedigrees and a Jack Knife to beat Punk. I know a lot of people are pissed Punk got pinned, but if you’re going to get beat, isn’t that the way to do it? As with everyone else, it’s all in the follow-up (right, TNA?) … let’s see what they do tomorrow night on #Raw. Hey, I hashtagged #Raw! Ah, it’s only been almost 5 years since I left. Maybe I’ve mellowed just a little. Nah!”
As noted prior to last night’s Night of Champions PPV, Beth Phoenix was penciled in to win the WWE Divas Championship as of this weekend, but WWE changed plans at the last minute likely after the plans were spoiled online. Fans in Buffalo last night — Beth’s hometown — were not happy with the result of the match and started chanting “bulls–t” afterward.
