Del Rio sets up the ladder, moving it to the center of the ring, and then he slowly begins climbing to the top. Punk and Miz both make it into the ring and Del Rio's got his hands on the title. They tip the ladder and Del Rio crashes down into the ropes, crotching himself. Del Rio falls to the outside where Ricardo is quick to attend to him. Miz and Punk trade blows in the center of the ring. Punk gets the upper hand with a couple of stiff kicks, and both men fall back down to the mat.
Back in the ring, Ricardo sets the ladder up, and begins climbing for the championship. Punk and Miz tip the ladder, sending Ricardo out of the ring, crashing to the arena floor, and through a table on the way down. The crowd goes nuts and the replay from the overhead camera is absolutely insane, and a little hard to watch.
Punk lays in to Miz with a couple of kicks before shouldering him. Miz fights it off and tries for the SCF, but Punk fights it off. Punk charges Miz in the corner but Miz moves and Punk's shoulder connects with the ring post. Miz somehow connects Punk's handcuffs to the turnbuckle post, stopping the champion from moving. Punk tries to hit Miz, but he's just out of reach. Miz gloats, but Punk catches him with a kick to the side of the head to take Miz out.
Miz goes to the apron to try and break the turnbuckle arm from the ring post. Del Rio brings a ladder into the ring and he and Miz both set up a ladder, trying to climb to the top. Punk is trying his hardest to unscrew the turnbuckle, and he's successful. Punk runs up the ladder and all three men are at the top. Punk fights everyone, hitting everyone with rights. Punk knocks Miz off of the ladder, then knocks Del Rio down to the mat. Miz pulls Punk from the ladder and climbs right up, but Punk pulls him down, hits the Go to Sleep, and sends Miz crashing out of the ring and down to the floor. Punk reaches up, and he pulls the title down from the ceiling, winning the match.
They air replays of a great main event as CM Punk poses to end the show.
