It was bound to happen eventually, but I don’t think anybody expected it to happen last night. As I’m typing this, I’m looking over my shoulder because my girlfriend is standing directly behind me, hasn’t seen RAW yet, and doesn’t know what happened, so I don’t want to spoil it for her. She was with me at WrestleMania 24, she saw CM Punk win Money in the Bank live and in person, and we’ve watched him carry that briefcase around on television for the last three months, wondering when he’d cash it in. Well, Edge found out the hard way last night, as he showed up on RAW and walked out minus one World Championship. Even by the halfway point of the show, the WWE writers kept us guessing as to whether or not Punk would even leave with his newly won title in hand, but alas, he did. When my girlfriend does see it, I might ruin it ever so slightly for her though. See, she’s a Jeff Hardy fan – and if Jeff hadn’t violated the wellness policy and missed WrestleMania, he would be World Heavyweight Champion right now. Think about that for a second. Jeff Hardy could be World Champion. Lesson for you kids: Don’t do drugs!
