Many people are saying that Jeff Hardy deserves credit for making Punk look like a real main eventer on the way out. I agree but lets not forget that Punk himself made the most of the situation. Turning him heel was the best thing that could happen to him. Anyone who's seen his heel work in Ring Of Honor will tell you the same. His mic work as really come out these past few months with some great promos. I love watching him preach to the fans about living a clean life and being straight edge.

Only in wrestling could the heel talking sense be booed over the babyface. Jeff fails a couple of drug tests and fans love him. CM Punk is a true role model of how someone should live their life if possible and he gets booed. When he first signed for WWE the Ring Of Honor fans went on about how he wouldn't be used right. How wrong could they be? He's the number one heel in the company right now and hopefully in the midst of a very long and deserving title run to make up for the short and badly run title runs he's had so far.

He carried the promos with Jeff like a proper pro. While Jeff would shout on the mic and say little it was upto Punk to do the majority of the work so not to expose the limited mic skills Jeff has. He will probably carry Undertaker on the mic in his current fued as well. Not because Undertaker is poor on the mic but because his character is a man of very few words. I just hope Undertaker doesn't undo the good work Jeff as done for Punk by getting the better of him too much.
