Chris Jericho ruins CM Punk’s “metal” moment
LOS ANGELES – In his continuing mission to ridicule CM Punk, Chris Jericho’s latest insult took place outside a WWE ring - specifically, at the 2012 "Revolver" Golden Gods Awards ceremony Wednesday night, while accepting Punk’s Most Metal Athlete award on behalf of the WWE Champion, who is currently overseas.

“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.
For the third year in a row, the Fozzy frontman hosted the awards ceremony that honors some of the biggest stars in heavy metal and hard rock. ( MORE ON THE GOLDEN GODS)
