CM Punk had his hands full when he defended the WWE title in a triple-threat match in Indianapolis that year, squaring off against both Ryback and John Cena in a triple threat main event.

The group would come to be called The Shield – and that move the Shield Bomb. They would also go on to multiple world championships and tag-team titles and one, a certain Roman Reigns, would defeat The Undertaker at WrestleMania.
