Talking about how Punk earned the victory, he hit a GTS early on, but Allin tumbled outside the ring, which prevented him from getting pinned. Punk’s next GTS came in the closing moments of the bout, and this time, he pinned Darby Allin right in the middle of the ring to earn a hard-fought victory.
