AJ now holds all the cards due to her being the special referee in the WWE Championship match between Bryan and Punk at Money in the Bank 2012, and when a psychologically unstable person feels they have power over the one that created them, they become more dangerous than ever. She can ultimately decide who walks out of Money in the Bank as champion.
Bryan realizes this, and he's begun to show compassion toward AJ once again. Punk has not. As fragile as AJ’s mind is, she is not stupid. She realizes that Bryan is only being nice to her because he wants to win. It is still unclear what AJ wants, but if I had to guess, she wants to put Bryan through as much pain as she herself feels she has experienced.
Bryan is unwittingly positioning himself as a pawn in a dangerous game. CM Punk appears to not yet be aware that he, too, is on the board playing the same game (just like Bryan), and there’s only one who really knows what the end game will be. That’s a woman who is sinking further and further down the rabbit hole of reality.
