The fans of WWE and the IWC themselves know how powerful CM Punk is.
He has backstage influence in his storylines, his opinions matter to Vince McMahon himself, has huge drawing power and his merchandise sales are through the room. This man seems like he is on top of company and the WWE Universe.
Or is he?
The John Cena vs. CM Punk feud had something in it that CM Punk is not playing with right now: reality.
Yes, he often refers to many real life events with both Triple H and Kevin Nash but they do not have the same punching power as they have in the past. In the John Cena vs. CM Punk feud CM Punk had a lot to offer with stating the opinions of the fans right to John Cena's face.
CM Punk told him that the fans are sick of him, he is boring, cannot wrestle and pointed out the vast majority that know what he does in the ring is merely an act in the sense that he is a product of WWE's status quot. He stated he was the pillar of change and wants to make WWE fun again.
The way to do it was to remove John Cena as champion and to walk out the champion. He did just that at Money In The Bank. It was the shocker of WWE and I myself even believed WWE would find a way to mess it up but did not. The fans of WWE and the IWC were ecstatic at the possible change being rushed in and what it could mean.
The feud continued with CM Punk being gone from WWE for two weeks before returning because John Cena capturing a second WWE title that was made. From there it escalated itself every week and got better because of CM Punk's promos. When the match at Summerslam happened people expected CM Punk to win but not get screwed.
That is where WWE seemed to falter a little bit because both WWE fans and the IWC felt Alberto Del Rio should not have been champion yet considering CM Punk had only held the title for three weeks and Alberto Del Rio himself was not proving himself a top superstar.
After the occurrence WWE began the mystery to who sent the text message for Kevin Nash to attack CM Punk. The John Cena feud was abandoned after Kevin Nash cost CM Punk his number one contender shot.
They went into a CM Punk vs HHH fued, and then into a CM Punk and HHH fued. Really? I mean we go from "voice of the voiceless" vs "hated by the voiceless" to a tag team main event. I thought he lost it. I honestly thought that Punk became a one trick pony.
However, as they slowly moved away Nash and HHH into their own fued. They put punk back into the title picture and here comes another shocker. Dwayne main events Survivor Series? I mean instead of giving the WWE title match any importance, they made it a warm up.
Anyways, what im getting at is i think they should have let punk keep the title for longer than three weeks. And the WWE belt moving around like whore wasn't a great idea either. My question to you folks is "Was this entire Punk stint s good as it could have been?" i don't.
Thanks for reading.
