That was awesome! (clap clap clapclapclap): Wait a dadgum minute ... that isn't Jeff Hardy!

I'm not going to lie. I'm kind of over CM Punk.

I still think he's a damn fine wrestler and one of the best Superstars the WWE currently has on the roster but his brief stint as the biggest name in the company revealed -- at least to me -- what kind of person he is.

He just doesn't seem very nice.

I know that seems childish and lame but I always thought of Punk as the kind of guy I would like to grab a Pepsi with. And maybe all of the attention he's received since his infamous worked shoot promo this past summer has put so much pressure on him that he simply can't be bothered to deal with idiot marks that tweet him or even the occasional level-headed wrestling fan who lets him know that his current direction pretty much sucks.

And while I've kind of soured on him as of late, I can still appreciate him as a performer and one of my favorite moments of his -- nay, in all of wrestling -- came back in 2009 after Punk defeated Jeff Hardy in a steel cage match, forcing "The Charismatic Enigma" to leave the company.

But he returned the next week... or did he?

The kids' reactions, oh, the kids' reactions are amazing. Especially the shaggy haired kid. He looks like something dookied a shooter in his bowl of Cookie Crisps.

The segment ended with brother Matt Hardy rushing the stage and defending his younger sibling. Matt was always the most sensible one of the two, you know?
