Is Bryan still tryin’?
Daniel Bryan is certainly one for underhanded tactics, but his insistence that AJ was his “future wife” seemed a little too intense to be disingenuous. AJ seemed slightly forlorn that Bryan didn’t win the WWE Title from CM Punk, and given her ominous hold over The Second City Saint, will Bryan attempt to seal their long-brewing reconciliation?
The Champ is here?
John Cena prevailed yet again, outlasting Chris Jericho, Big Show, Kane and The Miz to capture his first Money in the Bank contract. The briefcase (and the contents within) guarantees the Cenation leader an opportunity for CM Punk’s WWE Title, and the question is now not a matter of if, but when, Cena will choose to redeem the precious paper and attempt to reclaim the supreme prize for the first time in nearly a year. Tradition would suggest that Cena cash in the contract when the champion is most vulnerable, and following last night’s hellish No-DQ Match against Daniel Bryan, Punk is as vulnerable as he’s ever likely to be tonight. Speaking of which …
Is CM Punk surrounded?
There’s no beating around the bush here: It is a bad time to be CM Punk. True, The Second City Saint heroically defended his championship against Bryan at Money in the Bank, and even managed to overcome the hurdle of the unstable AJ as his special guest referee (PHOTOS). But AJ didn’t seem too thrilled that Punk prevailed over her former flame; The Voice of the Voiceless seemed definitely worse for wear at the end of the contest, and with John Cena now in possession of the WWE Title contract, Punk and Cena’s year-old rivalry suddenly has the potential to re-ignite. Cena didn’t look too banged-up coming out of his Money in the Bank Ladder Match. Punk, by contrast, might not be himself for the next couple of weeks. Couple that with the fact AJ doesn’t seem done with Punk, and things are looking dicey indeed for CM Punk’s status as WWE Champion.
