Agreeing with that. Punk losing to Bryan by AJ as the ref would have not taken away his credibility, and it would keep him face(did not want a heel turn at all). Although I am enjoying Bryans current position, he could be higher up the card. Im only expecting Punk to actually get interesting post SummerSlam.
As for the first hour ratings, they will always struggle in my opinion. Other two hours, meh, surprised hour 3 had less than hour 2.
