Wrestlemania #28: Raw World Title – CM Punk (C) vs. Chris Jericho

This is probably the show stealer.This match is a tale of two stories.  For a few weeks they started with arguing over who the best in the world was and Jericho saying that Punk ripped off all his ideas.  Then they shifted over to Jericho ripping on Punk’s family for the sake of driving him to drink.  I think the idea that we’re supposed to go with is that Jericho pressured Punk into giving him the title match and then is using the family stuff to mess with his mind and make him lose the title as a result.  I’m not sure how well they’ve done at conveying that idea which isn’t good, but at the end of the day it’s Punk vs. Jericho.  Do you really think they’re going to have a bad match?  I’ll go with Punk to retain, but him losing and exploring what he might do could be interesting.

    This could go either way and it could be MOTN. I am picking CM Punk to Retain but if Jericho wins it sets up the Rematch in Punk’s Hometown at Extreme Rules where he wins it back.

    Since Punk is the new superhero on RAW, he can’t lose the title on the grandest stage or whatever they call it to Wrestlemania.. His feud with Jericho will continue though & Jericho will cheat on Raw or other secondary PPV to take title from Punk later in the year..

    Wait. Why can’t Jericho cheat to win at Mania? He’s gotten championships before with his sneaky ways. What makes this one different?

    Because it is Wrestlemania, cheap finishes should not happen at Wrestlemania.
