IN THE RING
World Heavyweight champion C.M. Punk + former champion Jeff Hardy + even former champion Edge: C.M. Punk said he’s heard some grumblings (some from the fans) that he cashed in his Money in the Bank against fan-favorite Jeff Hardy at Extreme Rules. Punk is doing a semi-heel thing to encourage fans to boo him. Punk said it was the entire purpose behind the contract that is in the Money in the Bank briefcase. Punk said he’s never done anything in his life just to be popular, he only does things just to be himself. Punk held up the World title and said it was the entire reason he was a WWE superstar. Punk said he would bring respect, honor (woohoo!), and integrity back to the championship. Jeff Hardy interrupted and said he wasn’t out there to complain, but did say he doesn’t think Punk earned the World Heavyweight title. Hardy told Punk that he cashed in on the wrong guy! Punk said he understands Hardy’s point of view. Punk said it was Jeff who put himself in a Ladder match, and when he did that a light went off in his head and he knew that would be the night to cash in. Hardy said it was selfish of Punk, and asked him if he cares about his fans. Hardy said he doesn’t walk the same path as Punk, but he wants his title rematch TONIGHT! Edge walked out and said if anyone was getting a rematch at the World Heavyweight title it was going to be HIM! Hardy said it wasn’t about Edge, it was about him and Punk. Edge said he knows what makes Hardy tick, but ever since Punk came on the scene he’s been trying to figure him out. Edge said he figured out who he was trying to emulate. Edge claimed Punk was trying to emulate him, but he never has been and never will be HIM. Edge said told Hardy to get behind him because if anyone gets a rematch tonight it’s him! Hardy bashed Edge with the microphone and then gave Punk the Twist of Fate, followed by a Swanton-bomb from the top rope! Theodore Long came out and said this Monday at the Three-For-All (RAW), C.M. Punk will face the winner of Edge and Jeff Hardy tonight!
Theodore Long & WWE Intercontinental champion Chris Jericho: Chris Jericho said he wanted to know why Long was denying him his chance at the World Heavyweight title. Jericho said he unmasked Rey Mysterio this past weekend and became nine-time Intercontinental champion. Jericho said he was dressed to compete and it was time to make things right. Long said they’ll see if Jericho is worthy of contention because tonight he’ll go one-on-one with C.M. Punk in a non-title match..
