trash talk and respond to Punk's "best in the world" comments. Rewatch the segment where Bryan is working over Punk's arm, I believe it's right after they came back from commercial break. Bryan looks up and laughs to himself as he mutters, "Best in the world? Best in the world?" It's subtle but it's there.
The match was full of subtlety and amazing selling. Both looked crisp and no noticeable slip-ups. I too dug the "ROH-style" match they worked and I wasn't fazed by the ending since it not only set up a potential WrestleMania match between Jericho and Punk, it not only kept both competitors looking strong, but it kept to Bryan's heel character. Smart finish, in my opinion. Easy ****.
