Yea he gave it over **** I think.
They used a ring rust story because Punk had been off for a while, they needed him back to sell a PPV in Chicago, and Jericho was the only credible Main Eventer not engaged in a feud.
I really liked it the first time I saw it, but on rewatches it got worse and worse, the hot hot crowd tricks you when you watch it live and are psyched to see Punker back in action.
I think I gave it **3/4 on my 3rd and final watch. Not horrendous, but not up to snuff for 2 guys who put on an absolute masterpiece at WM28.
