Jericho accepts an award on behalf of CM Punk

Saw the following on DOT NET earlier today, WWE is continuing to use multiple platforms to get their angles and characters over.
“I want to accept this for him, and even though he beat me at WrestleMania, and basically embarrassed me, I will give this to him in good standing,” Jericho said ... then smashed Punk’s award over his knee and tossed it off the stage.

The article also mentions that Jericho has hosted the Golden Gods awards for three years now so there was an established reason for Chris to be there already.  I think that's good as it makes the whole thing come off a bit more naturally.
