BOSTON, MA –WWE Champion John Cena and CM Punk used every tool in their respective arsenals as they battled to determine which Superstar was truly “best in the world” in front of the Cenation leader’s hometown Boston crowd. Ultimately, it was Cena’s impressive top-rope German suplex that would conclude this brutal bout. Yet, it wasn’t Cena’s arm that was raised in victory at the end of the night.
After Cena began celebrating what appeared to be his eleventh WWE Championship victory, referee Chad Patton noted that Cena’s shoulders were also flat to the canvas as the Cenation leader had Punk in a pinning predicament. As explained by ring announcer Justin Roberts, the match had officially ended in a draw … with CM Punk retaining the WWE Title.
