Wow, way to show desperation and the lack of trust TNA has of their own talent. They rather use old footage of Punk in his TNA days (A time that he has publicly said to be aweful) instead of show the guys that build TNA and are still involved with the company.

I think its a dumb move. TNA hardly took Punk seriously in his run with TNA(D-Lo Brown calling CM Punk a jobber) and Punk isn't a TNA wrestler so why promote a wrestler that's not signed with your company? Its a pretty desperate move from TNA.

According to the article, it said
"Watch as CM Punk battles Abyss, Raven, Terry Funk​, Sabu, Shane Douglas and many more!" Only Abyss is currently in TNA. This is definitely promoting CM Punk. And not even mentioning Joe, Styles, or Daniels.

EDIT: Here is a list of all his matches in TNA...


July 2, 2003 - NWA^TNA: Shane Douglas defeated C.M. Punk in a CLOCKWORK ORANGE match..
~~~After the match, James Mitchell threw a fireball in the face of C.M. Punk!
July 23, 2003 - NWA^TNA: Shane Douglas, Brian Lee & Slash defeated Raven, C.M. Punk & Julio Dinero..
August 20, 2003 - NWA^TNA: Slash & Sinn w/James Mitchell defeated Julio Dinero & C.M. Punk w/Alexis Laree..
September 24, 2003 - NWA^TNA: The Gathering (Raven/Punk/Dinero) beat The New Church (Douglas/Slash/Sinn) in a dog collar match..
~~~After the match, all three members of the Gathering were hung from the rafters by chains..
October 15, 2003 - NWA^TNA: Slash & Vampiro w/James Mitchell defeated C.M. Punk & Julio Dinero..
November 5, 2003 - NWA^TNA: Julio Dinero & C.M. Punk defeated Lazz & Kid Kash..
November 19, 2003 - NWA^TNA: Julio Dinero & C.M. Punk beat Ekmo & Sonny Siaki when Trinity refused to give Siaki a steel chair..
December 3, 2003 - NWA^TNA: Kevin Northcutt & Abuss & Legend w/Don Callis defeated Raven & C.M. Punk & Julio Dinero..
December 10, 2003 - NWA^TNA: C.M. Punk & Julio Deniro defeated Legend & Kevin Northcutt..
December 17, 2003 - NWA^TNA: Abyss & Kevin Northcutt & Legend defeated Raven & C.M. Punk & Julio Dinero in a 6-man Cage match..
~~~Abyss pinned Raven after Julio Dinero & C.M. Punk turned on their leader and whacked him with chairshots!
January 7, 2004 - NWA^TNA: Julio Dinero & C.M. Punk defeated Raven & Sandman with help from.. Father James Mitchell!!
January 14, 2004 - NWA^TNA: The Gathering (Julio Dinero & C.M. Punk) defeated Sandman in a handicap match!
January 21, 2004 - NWA^TNA: The Gathering (Julio Dinero & C.M. Punk) defeated Sandman & Balls Mahoney..
January 28, 2004 - NWA^TNA: The Gathering (Julio Dinero & C.M. Punk) defeated Sandman & Mikey Whipwreck..

February 18, 2004 - NWA^TNA: Raven & Terry Funk defeated The Gathering (Julio Dinero & C.M. Punk) w/James Mitchell..
February 25 2004 - NWA^TNA: Raven & Sabu defeated The Gathering (Julio Dinero & C.M. Punk) w/James Mitchell..
April 2004: C.M. Punk is one of several TNA-contracted wrestlers who were pulled from all ROH shows (due to feinstein incident)..
~~~C.M. Punk instead decides to quit TNA and support Ring of Honor as well as Pro Wrestling World-1..

No Styles. No Daniels. No Joe. You want those matches, you get ROH DVDs instead.

They could start a TNA: Dropped the Ball series, it can include:

CM Punk:We forgot he was here too,but oh oh look he's popular now,watch him when he wasnt! umm plz?
Awesome Kong: Klash of the Kongs, The most intimidating Knockout in TNA history takes on a shaved gorilla, i.e. Bubba the Love Sponge,special commentary by Hulk Hogan,explaining y he got rid of Kong instead of the racist slug
Ron Killings: The TNA TRUE wrestling story,before the Jimmys,cigarettes and water bottles,we gave him a title run tho
Christian Cage: Captain Charisma before his obvious balding,he was TNA champ as well,more credibility as well? Sure we jobbed him out,wat's ur point?

I gotta go w/ the TNA bashers on this one, Selling out ur own talent for a quick buck is really pathetic

*Remember, this is legal.

*At a time when Punk is the biggest name in the world, it makes perfect sensefor Impact Wrestling to capitalize on him.

*Impact Wrestling is probably also doing this as a way of showing respect to Punk. I hope you guys aren't forgetting when something similar happened with Mick Foley and Hulk Hogan. The WWE showed them respect by promoting Foley's book, and releasing a Hogan DVD while they were in TNA. I don't see how this isn't doing a similar thing. I also hope that this isn't one of those cases where "if WWE does it its good, if TNA does it its pathetic".

The thing is, Punk doesn't even like guys in TNA(Hulk Hogan, The Hardys, D-Lo Brown) so why show him respect when he doesn't think highly of there company? I think its desperate and kinda funny that TNA is doing this since they had a great chance to showcase Punk's talent a while back but gave him a forgettable run there but once he blows up big in WWE, NOW TNA wants to promote him all of a sudden? This is just an idiotic and desperate move on TNA's part.

Also, the only reason Foley's book was even plugged by WWE was because Foley defended Linda Mcmahon during the whole campaign of Linda's which Vince obviously liked.

Wonder how the guys in the tna locker room feel that their company would rather showcase a wrestler from their rival company than anyone of them. Way to build morale tna. dumbasses!

Cause WWE didn't do it to increase their ratings, or get more visits in their homepage, they did it out of respect to Foley.
TNA is taking advantage of the large promotion and hard work that Punk and WWE are putting into this storyline.

The point of doing something like this is to use people who recognize Punk to make them take notice of the talent they currently have in the current roster. Sadly, as I listed here (http://www.ewrestlingnews.com/community/showthread.php?8262-Impact-wrestling-promoting-punk&p=196243&viewfull=1#post196243), Punk's only current TNA Star he faced was Abyss. Most of it was former WCW and ECW people and some I do not recognize.

The difference is, CM Punk isn't TNA's creation nor was he utilized there so it makes no sense to hype up someone you had no faith in from the start.

I understand that BUT that's not why people are mad at. The reason is because they are hyping up someone out of desperation. If CM Punk didn't blow up big like he is recently, do you really think TNA would be hyping up CM Punk like what they are doing now? I mean, D-Lo Brown did call Punk a jobber when Punk was in TNA so what does that tell you? Just another desperate move for $$$.

Why do you keep trying to prove a point? WWE does not even care about TNA. They even advertised Mick Foley's book while he was in TNA. And the vintage collection was to go along with the WCW dvd that they released awhile back. I believe they even had Hulk Hogan. Those guys actually stayed for longer periods of time within WCW or WWE. So they have the rights. CM Punk was not huge in TNA. He was not even there that long, and he even openly said that his time there sucked. TNA is simply biting off of CM Punks current fame. If CM Punk had never joined WWE then we would not be seeing that footage in the TNA vault.

The guy that keeps comparing it to Sting needs to quit trying to make it so broad. If Sting won the TNA championship and then 2 weeks later the WWE said "Watch The Icon Sting in his beginning of NWA all the the way untill the demise of WCW. See his humble beginnings to multiple time World Champion." THEN and ONLY THEN would it be the same. Since none of their footage is Sting-exclusive then it is now way remotely the same.

Even if you buy all of the On Demand stuff, wont you want to see where he is now? Oh yeah, WWE.

Then, if you actually buy stuff like this On Demand, wouldn't you want to buy WWE's larger and more impressive, probably better presented, selection of WWE videos, including title runs. It's stupid. Say, TNA somehow get $20 dollars out of a guy for the whole set (Yes, I have roughly no idea on American pricing). Hyperthetically, won't the guy just go over to the WWE after and go, wow there is even more here, vast amounts more! And spend like say $20 dollars there, oh look a Punk T-Shirt - $20, oh my son might want a Punk action figure - $15 dollars.

Not a great idea, you get 20 quid, but your rival might get triple due to it. Smooth.

Anything that might draw in extra cash is a good move. In addition to what you mentioned there is also a chance they might check out other footage from TNA's past and tune into Impact.

Exactly, it might get you the short cash injection, and show people what TNA is like.

But people are more likely to wonder where he is at now, and how the others are too, since hardly any of the other wrestlers are on TNA either.

Whoever thinks this is a great buisness idea, they don't know business.

Even if you buy all of the On Demand stuff, wont you want to see where he is now? Oh yeah, WWE.

Then, if you actually buy stuff like this On Demand, wouldn't you want to buy WWE's larger and more impressive, probably better presented, selection of WWE videos, including title runs. It's stupid. Say, TNA somehow get $20 dollars out of a guy for the whole set (Yes, I have roughly no idea on American pricing). Hyperthetically, won't the guy just go over to the WWE after and go, wow there is even more here, vast amounts more! And spend like say $20 dollars there, oh look a Punk T-Shirt - $20, oh my son might want a Punk action figure - $15 dollars.

Not a great idea, you get 20 quid, but your rival might get triple due to it. Smooth.

Actually, their idea is not that bad. CM Punk became really known in the WWE. Most fans only know about his time in the WWE. And now he is really hot and even known beyond the WWE audience. People pay big bucks for CM Punk. This means that everything spent on Punk will go straight to the WWE. What TNA actually is doing is trying to 'steal' some money out of the pockets of the WWE. That money would've went to CM Punk merchandise, owned by the WWE, but instead it goes to TNA now.

So how is this different from a University or High School or Youth Academy using one of their graduates as a promotional tool?

Its still a bad idea. Punk maybe the talk of the wrestling world but hes still a WWE wrestler and TNA promoting him makes WWE seem superior. All they are doing is trying to get money from this which isn't a bad thing but as TBOZ mentioned, it will make the viewers who watch Punk's matches on TNADemand want to follow his current stuff which is in the WWE.

For me, its not about them promoting Punk on TNADemand but I just find it funny how TNA gives him a short run and D-lo Brown calling Punk a jobber but now, all of a sudden, TNA wants to promote him. lol
