- WWE released the following video of highlights from CM Punk's WWE Title reign in 2012: - This week's WWE Classics Five-Star Match of the Week was chosen by The Miz and he picked Chris Jericho vs. Shawn Michaels from WrestleMania 19. Miz told WWE Classics: "One of my favorite matches of all time was Chris Jericho vs. Shawn Michaels at WrestleMania in Seattle at Safeco Field. The reason why it’s my favorite is because I enjoyed the build up toward it with the story that Chris Jericho always wanted to be Shawn Michaels. He dressed like Shawn Michaels, did moves like Shawn Michaels and he felt that he was better and he could beat Shawn Michaels. Not only had he become a big star like his hero, but he also felt like he was better than his hero. They put on this spectacular match that was high-flying, hard-hitting, and just everything you want in a Five-Star Match. The greatest thing, in my opinion, was the ending. Shawn Michaels pins Chris Jericho, and then Jericho has this emotional moment where he’s almost crying. And you feel it. You feel the inner kid coming out of Chris Jericho. And they both go for that hug and you’re seeing this wonderful moment, and then the mean Chris Jericho comes out. He gives Shawn Michaels a low blow, shoves his face and walks out triumphantly. He didn’t win, but the thing you remember from that night was Chris Jericho making you feel that emotion." Big Backstage *Update* on Chris Jericho's 2013 Return to WWE...
