Hey Splashers! I hope all of you are enjoying the summer. Me? Nope! I'm a full-time student who is majoring in drafting. However that didn't stop me from putting my books aside and giving my usual 2 & 1/2 cents in on what has become the most talked about issue in recent wrestling history.
It's just over two weeks since CM Punk made his controversial promo on RAW, that has gripped the entire wrestling world. While I do believe that the segment itself was a staged segment, there is no doubt that much of what the he said was from the heart, and unscripted. It was the best segments I've seen since the climax in the Monday Night Wars. What made that segment so great, is that for a short period of time, I wasn't sure if it was a “sell” or if it was a “promo”. Lets face it 95% of what Punk said was true, and I think that is what made the segment real.
However once the WWE re-packaged Punks promo, and displayed it on Smackdown, the jig was up. Aside from the fact that they promoted CM Punk in a mixed tag-team match, in my home town of Boston, Ma for next week's RAW while he was still suspended was a double whammy.
However, the bigger mystery is still lurking: Is CM Punk in fact leaving the WWE? It appears to be very clear that after Money in the Bank, CM Punk is gone. So why the big push at the end of his WWE career? Everyone has been suspecting a “Chicago Screw-job” coming in two weeks. While that is most-likely the scenario to happen considering the ending segment on this past RAW between John Cena and Vince McMahon. Yet I would like to see a twist and see Punk walk out with the title, so the WWE has to make a new WWE Title, and Cena gets “Fired”.
One thing I am expecting to see in either case, is Cena turn heel. This could be the whole reason for punk's big push. It's the old smoke & mirrors game, you pay too much attention to one thing, while something else happens. To be honest, I hope the plot thickens. If this just turns out to just give one last hurrah for a great WWE Superstar who's on his way out, and it ends with “Super Cena” remaining as our @#!*% -kissing champion, then I won't be too impressed.
One last issue I would like to talk about that has to due with the possibility of CM Punk leaving...How did Zack Ryder get thrown into the Mix?! Your telling me if Punk does leave, it's goodbye New Nexus and hello Zack-Pack? Ryder may have a huge following on Youtube, but I don't think he will be bringing any Long Island Iced Z's to the ring. And if David Otunga and Michael McGillicutty need to saddle up with him, rather than go out on their own, their taking a step back rather than moving forward.
There are several other directions that people have written about. Such as R-Truth's "Conspiracy Theory", and even a "TNA Invasion". Both of these do have some legitimacy in them, but I personally think the WWE just mentioned Hogan, just to throw everyone off.
One week from this Wednesday WrestleDOWN! (7/13) will have the distinct privilege to interview one of the better female talents, that has come out of the WWE; Two Time Former Woman's Champion: Jazz!
