The segment with A.J. Lee, Daniel Bryan and CM Punk was certainly edgy. (Not just because Michael Cole offered himself to A.J., either.)
A.J. is not just breakout star of the year right now. She is also the most intriguing character in WWE. She is the one who moves the main event scene at this moment. She is right in the midst in ways that very few (other than the most perverse of General Managers) have been.
She is WWE’s King Maker.
WWE has done right to take their time with the fallout from WrestleMania. Many times when A.J. was expected to interfere, she did not. Now there is no mistake that she will be involved in the main event at Money in the Bank.
Daniel Bryan and CM Punk took very different approaches. Daniel Bryan praised A.J. and CM Punk chastised her, yet both ended up making out with her in very same minute.
Yes, back-to-back, one mouth after the other.
For my memory we have never seen a referee make out with both competitors. What it is going to be like in this three-way at Money in the Bank? I don’t dare to guess.
All three were on point, and I will let you be the judge as to whether Michael Cole deserves a Best or Worst for placing his body on display for A.J. and the SmackDown audience.
Just for the record: I believed A.J.'s kiss with Daniel Bryan more than with CM Punk.
That is not a prediction. Just saying.
