WrestleMania 28: Chris Jericho and the Epicness on the Monday Night Aftermath

Amber GibbsCorrespondent IIApril 3, 2012

WrestleMania 28 was a great adventure indeed, but the best part about WrestleMania is the night after WrestleMania! The night had a string of events happen that was enough to make any hardcore WWE fan scream at the top of their lungs.

The first awesome event started with the “voice of the people,” CM Punk. He got himself into a WWE Championship match with Mark Henry, but it wasn't until after that match was over that the fun began. Y2J, loser of the Best in the World match at WrestleMania, emerged from the crowd with a mic in hand. He vowed to make Punk drink, and that he did—two bottles of Jack, that is.


More than one awesome thing happened in this aftermath encounter.

First, Jericho pulled out what looked like a legitimate bottle of Jack Daniels! Second, he actually poured what seemed to be brown liquor down CM Punk's throat! Third, Y2J slipped while kicking CM Punk's head and fell to the floor! Fourth, Y2J seemingly smashed a bottle of Jack over CM Punk's head.


The next tremendous moment of the night came after the triple threat United States Championship match. Santino retained his title and was on his way to receive a double-team from American Perfection when Brodus Clay came to the rescue, and Dolph Ziggler became one of my top current wrestlers.


American Perfection walked toward Santino Marella and Brodus Clay to give a small brawl for the fans. Dolph Ziggler jumps in the air toward Brodus and became the victim of a Funk-a-saurus headbutt. The headbutt sent Dolph Ziggler flying back down the ramp and left him selling the head butt on the ground until the commercial break.


Last but definitely not least, John Cena walked out to the ring to address the crowd after his loss to The Rock at WrestleMania last night. That’s not the epic part, somewhere between the fans in Miami booing Cena and screaming “We want Lesnar!” The unexpected happened.


While Cena stood in the center of the ring pleading with The Rock, who probably had already vacated the area, to come out. The crowd gave a barrage of chants for Daniel Bryan, The Rock and Brock Lesnar. As time ran down on Monday Night Raw, Cena looked hopeless and the crowd as well as I thought we’d be leaving the show with Cena looking distraught.

Then the music hit and Brock Lesnar, after a few seconds, walked down the ramp. After a quick stroll around the squared circle, Lesnar walked into the ring to see an extended hand from Cena. The hand resulted in an F5, and John Cena was left flat in the ring.

Lesnar even kicked the hustle, loyalty and respect hat. Poor Cena—you just want to give him a hug.

Now next week, one can only hope the WWE keeps up the excitement, and as for John Cena, it’s safe to say…

Here comes the pain!
