This was considered an international guest match...the commentators and the crowd took a real liking to Colt...Colt threw Punk into the guardrail and then hit his beautiful Asai Moonsault...Punk did some theatrics as if he was about to do something huge but instead he just put on a headlock...Punk went for a middle rope splash but Colt caught him and gave him a butterfly driver...they had a real fun finishing sequence...Colt hit this weird Celtic Cross neckbreaker, but Punk came back with a reverse hurricarana...Punk then hit a great Pepsi Plunge to get the win...this was a really fun match...crowd immediately took to both wrestlers and the match which made for a good atmosphere as well
