Money in the Bank 2012 Results: CM Punk and Daniel Bryan Live Up to Expectations
There are always high expectations whenever CM Punk and Daniel Bryan step into the ring, but the compelling rivals delivered once again at Money in the Bank 2012.
As perhaps the two most talented wrestlers of their generation, it's no surprise that they are capable of amazing performances like the one they put on Sunday. It was a marathon match (27:42), and it featured plenty of the beautifully brutal action we've come to expect from these two.
As a No Disqualification match, we knew heading into Sunday night that this would be a particularly violent affair. It proved to be just that, as both men bashed each other with kendo sticks, a chair, and of course, their own ridiculously powerful strikes.
It was a thrilling match from start to finish, and both men had their moments. Bryan had a couple pin opportunities, and when he put Punk in the Yes Lock with the kendo stick, I thought he would win the match.
Punk was able to escape, though, and after some more back-and-forth action, he stuck one of the sickest finishing moves I've ever seen. After placing Bryan on the table, Punk climbed to the top rope, before flying down and landing a picture-perfect belly-to-back suplex that sent both men crashing through the table.
It was a fitting end to an incredible match. My only problems with the match were the predictability of AJ's role as guest referee and the downtime that occurred when Bryan kept pleading to her.
Those are small issues, though, and it's tough to complain when you watch two men compete so valiantly for nearly half an hour. It was an amazing match, and I applaud both Punk and Bryan for their efforts.
