Punk wrestled in the tag match main event, teaming up with Antonio Cesaro against The Miz and Ryback. During the match, there was a spot where The Miz delivered a stalling suplex on Punk. The Miz botched a stalled suplex and nearly dropped Punk directly on his head. The crowd instantly knew the move did not go as planned, as Punk rolled out of the ring. WWE officials ran over to Punk and checked him out for several minutes.
The match continued and Punk did return to action, but was visibly shaken up and was wrestling at a much slower pace than usual.
