Several people have said that but I'm almost positive that Jericho and Styles are now 2-2 in their series.  They exchanged victories on TV and Styles won at the last PPV, then Jericho won at WM.  I think people were fine with Styles winning 2-1 in the best of 3 series, but then it started to make no sense when Styles had to beg Jericho for a 4th match after he already won, and then he winds up losing that match he begged for.  That's just not the way you book a babyface.

I thought Lesnar/Ambrose went exactly as planned. Ambrose comes out looking like the sympathetic face that won't give up. Got his ass whipped around for 20 minutes.

The match was substantially shorter than that, maybe 12-13 minutes, and Lesnar dominated 90% of it and only sold the weapons shots, then still won.  Again, not the way you book a babyface IMO.  Not to mention that the weapons were a perfect way to have Lesnar lose while still remaining strong and elevating Ambrose nonetheless.  Lesnar didn't need that win at all and Ambrose looks awful for losing it.
