323 days. Thatâ€™s how many days itâ€™s taken me to see no future for CM Punk after he drops the WWE Championship.
I cannot quite pinpoint it, but last night was the final knife in the coffin of CM Punkâ€™s main event status once he drops his title. It might be the fact that WWE has desperately tried to get Punk booed, or it might be that his current rivalry with John Cena has
CM Punk still cannot muster up any respect from an injured John Cena, Daniel Bryan & Kane got a team name which was the best a bad trio, and WWEâ€™s tag team division is finally becoming relevant again.
Last nightâ€™s Raw was just as engaging as last week, and once again it was all down to CM Punk and Paul Heyman. Thatâ€™s not to say the likes of AJ and Mick Foley werenâ€™t

Night of Champions Recap
After the disaster of SummerSlam, Night of Champions was a big improvement. Pretty much every match was worthy of pay-per-view (letâ€™s just ignore the Zack Ryder v. Antonio Cesaro match; once again I watched purely for Aksana), and despite its poor ending the CM Punk v. John Cena WWE Championship match was one of the best encounters between the two (it
Before I proceed onto tonightâ€™s blog, I want to do two things.
I want to applaud Michael Cole on his professionalism, firstly. If I were in his situation tonight I would have left with Jerry Lawler, and for Cole to stay behind the desk (albeit silently) in order to bring us fans prompt updates on Lawlerâ€™s situation had to be extremely difficult.
I would also like to
Anybody who follows my Twitter account will know two things â€“ I was especially active on social media last night, and I really enjoyed Raw. Michael Cole must be really proud of meâ€¦
The reason I enjoyed Raw last night was not the same as most people would have, Paul Heymanâ€™s appearance in the closing seconds. Rather, I enjoyed Raw last night because it had a strong opening
I donâ€™t know about you guys, but my respect for CM Punk has increased.
Itâ€™s not just the fact that he once again communicated with the IWC, or that he made a match with Jerry â€˜former King of Memphis, Tennesseeâ€™ Lawler look half decent (my favourite match of the night was John Cena vs. The Miz for those interested). It was also that he perked me up after what was
Last week I labelled the end of Raw as a disaster. I should have known that it was just a precursor to what would be the worst SummerSlam I have ever seen. If you ignore the fact that Punk retained, Jericho finally won a match on PPV in 2012, and Santino lost his United States Championship on the pre-show, WWE really dropped the ball here.
So close yet so far.
It was clear tonight that WWE forgot they now have to book three hour episodes of Raw if you ask me. There was no main event, and they had nothing better to improvise than what has to be the least progressive and relevant ending to Raw in a long time.
Before the catastrophe that was Brock Lesnar, Triple H and Shawn Michaelsâ€™ poorly improvised
The difference between a face and a heel when youâ€™re an older fan is often the opposite of what the WWE considers to be its â€˜universeâ€™ sees as a face and a heel, and tonight was a prime example of the audience being split between who the bad guy really was.
Back when I was a kid the heel was the guy whose ideals I didnâ€™t agree with, or the guy who decided to take a dislike
Arrogance is something which is thrown around WWE (and pro wrestling as a whole) an awful lot. Just look at Dolph Ziggler, Chris Jericho (heel or face, the man exudes it), Damien Sandow, and even TNAâ€™s Bobby Roode use it to be different. Itâ€™s now time to add an exaggerated sense of arrogance to CM Punkâ€™s heel turn, and itâ€™s actually working on me.
Not only did we get the new,
