Taker's match will end with him holding the urn to the night sky infront of 80,000 people, and that will be our last image of the urn and Paul Bearer. As I type that, I actually think it's kind of amazing.
That said: Agreed the spilling of the ashes was distasteful, but mehh who cares? It's Punk. He's getting heat.
Lastly, to say Punk seriously can't hang in a wrestling ring with anyone is just being a hater. I love Coffee Talk man, I've praised you for it. But Punk's unarguably a great wrestler. If we're talking in-ring abilities, he's every bit as good as Stone Cold or the Rock were, and I'm sure you think they are serious enough to hang with Taker.
