Pretty much this.

Punk and Bryan both gave a great wrestling showing (It's so good to have a heel champ that can actually wrestle. It brings so much more heat when he pussies out) and that's the best you expect from the match.

Made both champs look strong, and as achieved everything Mike said.

Real glad they're taking Bryan down the heel route. Everything I've seen of him in RoH and all the other organisations was him being a heel, so I'm excited.

And it's definitely in keeping with Jericho's character. Certainly not the first time he's interfered in high profile matches like that on Raw.

I still think he's a bit rough around the edges. In 2 weeks though I imagine he'll have won me over

It's not like the indies where he is in control, sadly I have a feeling a lot of his ideas will be too strong for WWE creative :(

He is doing as he's told character wise, because I doubt very much him being a vegan would even be considered in ROH as a heel point :lol:

Yeah, i think they're trying to pull a Punk straight-edge thingy with it.

Which is why I don't like it too much.

they should just have him make everyone tap out, give him natural heat , he just gets arrogant because nobody can beat him, it's worked in other organisations
