The feud was amazing, CM Punk's mic work certainly helped for hyping this match, and CM Punk himself proved to be the best thing happening in the WWE right now.
The match was decent, nice spots and not-so-bad booking. Jeff jumping off the ladder to the announcer's table certainly left me in awe. CM Punk got the win after punching a hurt Hardy off the ladder and getting the title, winning his first Heavyweight title without cashing in a MITB contract.
Now the most interesting aspect of this match happened during Punk's celebration; as he stood over a fallen Jeff Hardy, holding his third world title, the lights suddenly went out and the infamous "Bong" was heard, and that meant only one thing... When the lights came back on Punk was staring at the entrance ramp with a nervous smile on his face, and he was relieved that The Undertaker was nowhere to be found.
That was when he looked back down on his fallen prey to find him being replaced and none other than the Deadman in Jeff's place, chokeslamming Punk to end the night.
The coolest thing was that I didnt even notice that Taker was there until he
chokeslammed Punk! But this left me curious..
- Does this mean this is the last we will see of Jeff Hardy?
- If so, how will they sell his departure?
- How awesome will the Punk-Taker feud be??
