OKLAHOMA CITY — The stark image of an empty locker room posted on WWE.com hours before the Raw SuperShow may have led the WWE Universe to believe that the night’s event might not even happen. After all, the majority of the Raw roster refused to compete if Triple H was still in charge. Leave it to Mr. McMahon to turn the evening into one of the most contentious nights in history.

CM Punk & WWE Champion Alberto Del Rio def. The Miz & R-Truth by Disqualification

What started off as a showdown between the WWE Champion and The Straight Edge Superstar soon exploded into tag team warfare when Interim Raw General Manager John Laurinaitis reinstated the controversial duo of Miz & Truth and set this match on the spot. Quickly abandoned by his spineless partner, Punk was forced to go it alone against his devious opponents. But when The Awesome Truth began to double-team The Voice of the Voiceless, The Game rushed to the ring to defend his former rival in a show of solidarity the WWE Universe could actually get behind.

Following the match, the Interim Raw General Manager proposed yet another idea to bring to the Board — a bout pitting CM Punk & Triple H against The Miz & R-Truth at Vengeance.
