LOS ANGELES – In a 3-on-1 Handicap Match, one might expect the larger number to come out on top. But by chokeslamming Joseph Mercury onto a prone Luke Gallows, Big Show proved that just because CM Punk’s group of cronies are straight edge, it doesn’t necessarily mean they’re better than you – in the squared circle.

For weeks, CM Punk and the Straight Edge Society have been at odds with The World’s Largest Athlete, most recently attacking the Superstar’s hand in a brutal steel step assault, damaging tendons.
During parts of the match, The Straight Edge Society seemed to have the upper hand. Outside the ring, the group pummeled Big Show after smartly grounding him, trying to wear down the giant and give their team a better chance at pulling off the victory. But their overzealousness and cockiness in the numbers game backfired.
Never one to back down, Big Show used his anger in the bout, manhandling the bald-headed Luke Gallows and Joseph Mercury to The Second City Savior’s dismay. Though the odds may have been stacked against Show, the Knucklehead star stood firm.
Before the WWE Official finished the three-count, Punk was finished, too. The leader walked out, disgusted with the dismal performance he had just seen from his followers. With Serena falling off the wagon, and The Straight Edge Superstar continually reprimanding his devoted cohorts, the foundation of The S.E.S. appears to be on shaky ground.
What’s next for The S.E.S.? CM Punk has always been intent on saving everyone else, but can he save his own society?
