The Best vs. The Beast. WWE has posted a new video to its YouTube channel in which they show the full No Disqualification match between CM Punk and Brock Lesnar from SummerSlam 2013.

You can see the match in its entirety below:

FULL MATCH - CM Punk vs. Brock Lesnar - No Disqualification Match: SummerSlam 2013


The action started at a breakneck pace, with Lesnar outmuscling his smaller foe and focusing his punishing offense on Punk’s ribs, not yet completely healed from The Beast’s attack on Raw weeks ago. Despite speculation among certain segments of the WWE Universe that Punk would be wholly overmatched, however, The Best in the World proved completely fearless, and his never-say-die spirit, galvanized by the decidedly pro-Punk fans in attendance, allowed him to survive maneuvers that would have undoubtedly downed most Superstars.

Lesnar tossed Punk onto tables, slammed his body with a steel chair and rocketed him overhead with a belly-to-belly suplex on the floor. The farm-strong Lesnar placed a table cover over a prone Punk and leapt on him. A lariat that landed on Punk’s jaw and neckline prompted Michael Cole to describe the scene as a “sickening assault.”

Still, Punk would not give in. Even when Lesnar clamped on his Kimura Lock, the same maneuver that has broken the arms of Triple H and Shawn Michaels, The Straight Edge Superstar not only avoided submitting, but even reversed the hold into a cross-armbreaker and eventually a triangle hold that nearly made the big man tap.

At ringside, Heyman alternated between mockingly imploring Punk to “stay down” and encouraging Lesnar to “punish him.” It was more than Heyman’s taunting, however, that led to Punk’s downfall.  After Punk connected with the Go To Sleep, Heyman broke up the pinfall. The Best in the World got even, punching Heyman and even slapping on the Anaconda Vise, but the brief and sweet moment of retribution was halted by the wallop of chair strikes from Lesnar.

With the upper hand, Lesnar dropped Punk with the match-ending F-5 onto a chair, some 25 minutes after the opening bell.

Editor’s Opinion:

The only thing that would have made this better is if Lesnar had mangled Punk even more. I can’t stand CM Punk and any time that he loses makes me very, very happy.
