Wrestlemania 28 results: CM Punk retains his WWE title by submitting Chris Jericho

The end of the world as we know it? Hardly.

World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) Champion CM Punk put his world title on the line against longtime veteran Chris Jericho earlier this evening at WrestleMania 28, which emanated live from the Sun Life Stadium in Miami, Florida.

"Y2J" became the number one contender after winning the Royal Rumble creative bailed on one old-timer and re-hired another, who just so happened to have a really cool jacket and a penchant for trolling the fans.

He also liked taking potshots at Papa Punk.

It didn't do him any good, as the "Straight Edge Superstar" outlasted his Canadian nemesis in a thrilling back-and-forth contest that Punk ultimately won via Anaconda Vice, moving him on to his next feud.

But where does Chris Jericho go from here?
