While It wasn’t this bout that brought an end to their longstanding feud in Ring of Honor, it was among its most notable.
Their feud would conclude in Ring of Honor nearly four months later, but this match helped further their story in the most gruesome and intense manner possible.
Before the match even began, CM Punk shared with the audience how it felt being in a building that didn’t sell alcohol.
To put that into context, Punk’s mantra of being straight edge is that he doesn’t drink or use drugs. However, his holier-than-thou attitude didn’t sit well with those in attendance.
