Re: Chris Jericho's Theory on Punk's Heel Turn
Dammit Jericho, write a follow up to Undisputed!
He's right about this too. I see it as another point where the line between reality and onscreen blurred, Punk as BITW face had gone as far as it could (the heel turn was coming the moment he came back, it was inevitable) and it was clear that Cena's going to be the main event regardless (i.e. at MITB, the only reason the Raw MITB went on last was because Cena was in the match. It makes much more sense for a title match to close MITB because you have the tension of whether the corresponding winner will cash in) which would understandably annoy any worker not named John Cena or Vince McMahon, so it was decided to use it onscreen. A heel Punk gets to call Cena and Vince out on this whereas a face Punk can't without turning heel.
