Daniel Bryan comes out and they rehash the whole CM Punk – Daniel Bryan – Kane threeway lovefest thing. And then this match starts. Holy hell, this is a match I would watch every week, for hours on end. These guys can freakin’ go!
It’s a ton of technical wrestling, submission holds, and even an inverted atomic drop. But then, AJ comes out to the ring in a CM Punk shirt. Both guys are out of the ring, so that must mean it’s time for a commercial break.
Sure, let’s take a commercial during your best match of the night. Also, why is the best match of the night coming on at the mid-way point in the show? I don’t get it. Maybe Punk’s contract states he gets to go home before 11pm? Anyhow…
We come back and with AJ at the ring side, Cole and Lawler decide to talk about her weirdness and her infatuation with Daniel Bryan and/or CM Punk. ”Like grains of sand through the hourglass, these are the Days of Our Lives.” CHRIST. There’s an instant classic going on in the ring and they want to discuss AJ’s love life? GAHHHHHHHH.
I guess if you want to watch the match you can, but Cole and Lawler are absolutely not going to mention it whatsoever. It was a great match. But you already knew that.
They get towards the end and Daniel Bryan is trying to take the padding off the turnbuckle. AJ jumps on the ring to tell the ref, who apparently can’t hear her squeaky voice and instead argues with her to get down so that Bryan can finish untying the turnbuckle pad. Punk drops face first on the exposed turnbuckle and loses.
Bryan does the YES YES YES thing, and then Kane shows up with a chair to wear his ass out. As Bryan rolls out of the ring, Kane turns to get Punk. AJ tosses Punk a chair and that allows him the upper hand against Kane. From here, AJ is all smiles and shy little glances, Punk gives her the stinkeye for a while.
And then, Commercials!
