By the way, Justin Gabriel is uber talented, and I still have no clue why he is still the WWE's resident jobber. To my knowledge, the last time he won a match on Raw or SmackDown was against Antonio Cesaro, which led to their US title match last October at Hell in a Cell. That was nine months ago.
CM Punk vs. Alberto Del Rio had an interesting ending that was good for the storyline build-up between Punk, Heyman and Lesnar. The match itself was good, but the fact that Punk snapped on ADR for hitting Heyman shows that he is still loyal to him as a friend, which would be even more of a devastating blow if Heyman fully turns his back on Punk. If booked right, the stage could be perfectly set for Punk/Lesnar at SummerSlam, with a story that could add even more to the passion of the match.
