That is what you get when you give two of the best wrestlers in the world half an hour to do what they do best.

CM Punk and Daniel Bryan went at it, tooth and nail, for around 30 minutes in a No Disqualification match for the WWE Championship. And to make it even more interesting, AJ was acting as the special guest referee.

Although she wasn't out there the entire time -- a shove from Bryan to Punk knocked her off the apron and sent her backstage -- she more than made her presence known.

Upon returning from the backstage area, she placed a folded up steel chair in the middle of the ring and allowed the two men fight over it. This about on top of the kendo stick which had already been brought into play.

Chairs, kendo sticks... what else is missing? Oh yes, tables.

Punk finally secured the pinfall by sending Bryan crashing off the top rope through a table courtesy of a back suplex. With her former beau laid out on the mat, AJ looked forlorn as Punk celebrated with his title.
