Tonight was an amazing, but bittersweet victory. The money in the bank is about picking your moment, and tonight was my moment. The bitter part of the sweet is not being able to celebrate with Colt. We shared the moment when I won the briefcase at Wrestlemania, but tonight I'm in Oklahoma and he's still in Florida.

It still feels unreal that I won the WWE World Heavyweight Championship on my first Raw as an official member of the Raw roster. I keep expecting to wake up from a dream to find that I still have the briefcase.

After several hours of celebration, I go back to the hotel room and crash. I'm tired but also too wired to sleep. I take the belt out of my bag and run my fingers over it, as if feeling it will make it more real. I'm so lost in thought that I jump when my cell phone rings. When I pick it up, I see Colt's number on the caller id.


"Hey champ," the part that misses Colt fades at the sound of his voice.

"What are you doing?"

"Fondling the belt." Ok, I didn't mean to say that out loud.

I hear him muttering on the other end, and I could have sworn that he said something about fondling him.

"What was that?" I ask, there is no way I could have heard that right.

"I said I wish I was there for you to fondle me instead."

So I did hear him right. I wish he was too, but there is nothing I can do about that. However I have an idea, it's just a matter if he will go with it.

"What are you wearing?" Cliché I know, but as good as start as any.

I hear him chuckle.

Even though he's not there, I can almost feel him there. After the call ended the feeling of missing him came back.
