Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread
Punk/Jericho from ER was definitely a letdown for me. I don't think Punk/Bryan was at all, though. The use of weapons was very effective, unlike the Punk/Jericho match. Sure, their OTL was a technical masterpiece, but the MITB match showed that both could brawl as well as wrestle, and it showed the progression of their feud and just how personal it had become. They started as opponents showcasing their technical skills (who really is the best in the world), but as their feud lengthened and AJ was thrown into the mix, a lot of the holds used in their OTL encounter went right out the window. Plus, the YES! Lock with the aid of the kendo stick was awesome.
