    Supposedly (just a rumour) there is a lot of backstage heat on CM Punk at the moment, which could have been the reason he lost at Hell In a Cell:

    I was shocked when i saw that Taker had won the title. He's on a limited schedule, just back from injury and Punk is the big thing in WWE right now. It didn't make any sense, and neither did having the match as an opener, so maybe this would explain it. But if this is true then it's a pretty ridiculous reason.

    And Undertaker vs Batista? Ugh :urp:

    Like all rumors, I take this for what it is - talk.

    And Wooly, do you really think that would be why he'd lose the title? C'mon.

    They probably wouldn't have had Taker lose Hell in a Cell no matter what, in my opinion. I did think Punk was going to continue as champ, but my guess is that it would have taken a lot for them to give him the rub of being one of the few (or is it only?) to beat him in Hell in a Cell.

    Who knows, maybe he'll get the title back at the next PPV. I doubt he and Taker are finished feuding, as it's really going well.

    Haha thanks for the Stats, Millz. You never cease to amaze, my friend.

    Even taking that part off of my statement, I still dont' buy in.

    I was surprised that Undertaker won the title as well, he won't be wrestling every week on Smackdown, he'll do mostly promo's in my opinion, and I believe we need more from a Champion. But I doubt this is true, it wouldn't make much sense if he lost the title because of those reasons.

    If he had dress code issues while champ, they wouldn't just make him lose the title for some kind of stupid punishment. They'd discuss it with him and he'd clearly fix the situation because of his spot.

    I think they wanted Taker to become champ, plain and simple.
