CM Punks pipebomb promo of June 2011 brought an incredible amount of press attention to bear on Phil Brooks, his character and WWE as a whole, which he wasnt shy about exploiting. More on that later on. However, this underrated little segment on Monday Night RAW from a few weeks later owed a great deal to it too. You can make a valid argument that Punks pipebomb brought the worked shoot back to prominence in WWE, and this would be your prime slice of evidence. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qvyb3dj8RQA Triple Hs admission that he was now a WWE official, his reference to his family connection to McMahon, and more than anything, his clearly heartfelt love for the chairman of the board, made this compelling enough but McMahons performance was Oscar-worthy, actually eliciting chants of Thank you Vince! from the crowd in attendance.
