Just got back from the Greenville, SC Smackdown/ECW house show and just thought I’d let you know it was great!  I can get you full results if you want em, but I thought you’d be interested to know the two most interesting things I saw.

First off, Chris Jericho’s ability to get heat is amazing. He definitely got the most heat tonight, and so much so that a fan actually attempted to rush into the ring during the speech he made before the match. Of course the guy got stopped as he was getting in the ring, but I always love to see that wrestlers can still get this kind of reaction.

Secondly, CM Punk and Jeff Hardy had an incredible Extreme Rules World Title bout which Punk ended up winning.  After the match though, Punk actually tried to help Jeff up and talk to him, but Jeff ended up attacking him to hit the Twist of Fate and Swanton to finish off the night.  Now, I get that Punk is the one getting the heat here, but clearly Jeff was the one that acted like the heel tonight in my opinion.
