Of course the crowd in Chicago went crazy for the return of their hometown hero. It was unusual to see Jericho standing there watching as the fans gave this incredible return reaction to Punk.
It was also unusual to hear Michael Cole go back in time and call a wrestler like Dick The Bruiser a “sports entertainer.” Bruiser hardly resembled that image!
Jericho was jeered every time he was in charge.
It was a grueling battle but after a few attempts by Punk with his “Go To Sleep” and a kickout by Jericho, he was finally able to do two in a row to pin Chris.
APTER THOUGHT: Both Punk and Jericho were in top form and put on a great match. They are tailor made opponents for each other.
Did you get the feeling that Punk is trying to distance himself from Paul Heyman (again)?
