    CM Punk on Raw

    Post  Mr Torrie Wilson on Tue Jun 28, 2011 12:08 pm

    You know this place is dead when no one is even talking about this yet. I just had a look at this on youtube. Fucking awesome promo. Zero confidence that it will go anywhere but still, holy shit. That was more inside-y than that time Hogan burnt a copy of the Wrestling Observer on WCW TV.

    I checked it out on Youtube as well, extremely entertaining.I even looked up his promo's from the week before so they are highly recommended.

    It's really a retread of the summer of Punk storyline from ROH except he's telling everyone from the start that he's leaving with the title. Unfortunately I can only see it ending with Cena saving the WWE and Punk taking some time off. I would love to be wrong though!

    You know this place is dead when the ECW thread is still sticky. When a guest checks out the area and sees that, they give the place a miss. It would take 5 seconds to fix.

    Great promo, even better than Paul Heyman's one on Smackdown 10 years ago.

    Raw has greatly increased in recently weeks, I don't follow the internet any more so idea why, a new writer? R-Truth's new gimmick is original and interesting. The Mark Henry & Santino fued against Big Show has been as good as any upper mid-card feud they've done, and that includes the attitude era, for the love of god don't end up with a tag match with Kane. CM Punk is the perfect opponent for Cena due to the opposing demographies that cheer them on. CM Punk leaving has shades of the Dudleys leaving ECW. Mark Henry is being booked well, bloody hell!

    That Hogan promo on the Wrestling Observer, where he recommended fans to check out the internet for their wrestling news was very strange, as was the whole dark side of hulkmania angle.

    I also think it will go no where and agree with Punk that he is currently the best wrestler in the world. I liked how he wore at Stone Cold shirt during the promo, a wrestler Vince had no choice but to push and perhaps before making Vince so much money didn't want to main event his company, there's definitely something behind him wearing it!

    No way is he leaving the company with the title. I just hope there's no ringing of the bell screw job.

    Obviously I don't expect Punk to leave with the title, I meant I would love him staying on past the 17th or 18th whenever his contract expires. As it's borrowing quite heavily from the ROH angle why not have him win the title and stay on to defend it?

    Or could he do an Alundra Blaze incident. Some of the stuff he has been saying recently has been a bit close to the edge and a bit risky even for Punk.

    The Dudley boy angle I mentioned early had them win it on their last night, cut a promo about how WWE was were the real stars were (image the heat that generated!), issue an open challenge only to lose them.

    It's an exciting situation with loads of great possibilities that sadly looks like ending with a Cena victory and a crappy promo.

    I can't believe I'm actually looking forward to next week's raw, perhaps rewatching the Bela V Kelly submission match will readdress that!

    I just watched it this morning and was floored by it. I think what I liked best about it was the confidence and standard of the man's delivery. CM Punk has literally been the best thing in wrestling for the last 3 years in my books, and his exit will be the last nail in my wrestling coffin. I hope to God someone realises what a huge mistake they are making letting him go. Mind you, I bet Johnny Ace really has it in for him now!

    It was very good, very good. But please don't speak naively as if this isn't a worked shoot.

    Because the PPV is Money in the Bank it's possible Punk wins the title and someone immediately cashes in, similar to the Dudley's example SS mentioned and could possibly build someone massively over night or even just re-elevate someone

    Watched this live and was in awe. Best promo in years, CM Punk killed it. Watched it like 3 times now.

    I think you've nailed it mate. It worked well in ECW because the fans were really in to the company and hated WWF.

    I would have Punk cutting another promo, more personal than the one on Raw, perhaps in front of Vince who tried to stop him from winning the match but somehow inadvertently helped him (there you go, I've prevented Cena from looking unsuperhuman, this angle writes itself!)and the MITB winner sneaks up behind Punk and leathers him with the case. Vince makes the 3 count and the crowd go bananas. If punk is going he'll have serious kudos in the independents.

    CM Punk is suspended (Kayfabe Outlaw) and Vince is going to issue a statement on Raw.

    Good move.

    It was building up nicely, especially with the comic book convention thing.

    But then he returns with his title the night the tournament to crown a new champion finishes.

    It does seem a bit early to be coming back but he probably has only signed a short term contract running to Summerslam, Punk did seem very honest in the build to MITB that he wanted time off

    Punks promo work has been phenomenal the last few months, and love how he now uses his old ROH music. Not sure why Big Lazy got involved at SSlam, have a feeling it was John Laurinitis who sent the text..on the sayso of Vince

    True true, but the whole thing has lost it's fire a bit. Still a good watch though.

    As long as it's not the rumoured nWo revamp...

    Seriously, just because it's Nash and his shirt last week looked like his Nitro debut.

    Then again, it's about time for WWE to rehash another old idea. Haven't done that since Punk's "exit"
