Hey guys Knox here, hope all is well folks. I've really had an issue lately with Punk's "Best in the World" gimmick simply because he's not the best in the world. Not trying to bash Punk but it is what it is. When Bret Hart was "The Best there is, the best there was and the best their ever will be", we truly believed that. But we all know Cm Punk is not the best in the world.
Now I know this site is full of the typical internet Cm Punk fanboys but I just wanted to make a modest blog listing the wrestlers from the major companies whom I feel are better than Cm Punk. I know this will draw negative heat but it has to be said. The Best in the World is a very serious gimmick to play with, you can't just give the thing to any person with a solid buzz & fan base.
My Issue With Punk:
My true issue with Cm Punk is his ego. I dislike the way he carries himself as this big mouth prick. Before his huge push, he was a very humble guy outside the ring and now that he has a little buzz, he thinks he can say anything the hell he wants. That bothers me but maybe that's just me.
As far as "The Best in the World". Cm Punk is an amazing talent, he's awesome. But he certainly does botch alot. I remember the big match against Cena at Money in the Bank. Everyone was ready to bash Cena but at the end of the day Cena pulled out 10 new moves and the only two botches in the match came from Punk.
I feel like Punk needs to worry about selling Wrestlemania and not selling a stupid feud with an R&B singer. Your the face of the company for now. Be professional and carry yourself as the champ.
I'm not basing this list off star power. This list will be strictly WHO'S BETTER THAN CM PUNK IN THE RING. Not mic skills, World Titles or anything other than STRICTLY IN THE RING.
List of Wrestlers Better than Cm Punk:
Seth Rollins (Tyler Black) (FCW)
Once again, not bashing Cm Punk. This is just a serious gimmick calling yourself the "Best in the World". It works for Jericho because he has the overall talent, and the experience of pretty much wrestling every major wrestler in this business.
Jericho has danced in the ring with the likes of Booker T, Stone Cold, The Rock, Dean Malenko, Rey Mysterio, Eddie Guerrero, Juventude Guerrera, Undertaker, Kane, Kurt Angle, Triple H and pretty much every great. He has earned the right to use that staple as "Best in the World at What I do".
The True Wrestler who should have the "Best in the World Gimmick"?
You ask me this 5 years ago and I would say Kurt Angle. But this is a new day & age and even Angle will tell you he's not any longer but he will always be one of the greatest ever.
In this day & age from WWE & TNA, I would have to give the "Best in the World" tag line to Daniel Bryan for the WWE & AJ Styles for TNA. These are the two guys that literally are the best wrestlers from any major promotion. I feel like the gimmick would best fit them.
For the 8th time, this is not a blog bashing Cm Punk. Just had to clarify some guys who clearly outshine him in the ring. We can't blame Cm Punk. Who wouldn't accept that gimmick? Cm Punk is indeed in the ranks for the best overall superstar when it comes to drawing power, wrestling, mic skills and overall charisma. But if we're talking pure wrestling, there's a bus load of guys better than him.
Thanks guys for reading, I appreciate the support and feedback I get on my blogs. Be safe. Until then.
