What can be done with CM Punk?

June 21, 2011

CM Punk announced last night what he was eluding to at the Capital Punishment pay per view the night before. He first insisted on being the #1 contender and long story short he got that after defeating Rey Mysterio and Alberto Del Rio is an awesome triple threat match. Punk then filled us in on part two of his announcement, his contract with the WWE is up at Midnight after the Money in the Bank pay per view and that he would be taking the WWE Title with him.

This of course should sound a little familiar as it is pretty much what he did when he left Ring of Honor for the WWE. CM Punk won the ROH Title and threatened to take it with him. Of course lost it before he left but it was a cool angle for the company.

Mark my works, come the MITB pay per view superman John Cena will defeat CM Punk and he will ride into the sunset. The WWE will not take a chance to do anything different and exciting.

BUT… my brain started turning the wheels last night and started thinking how the WWE could use this to build the biggest WrestleMania in its history.

Here is what I would do…

Have CM Punk first pass leadership of the Nexus back to Wade Barrett. He hasn’t been the same since he went to Smackdown and quite honestly neither has the Nexus. They need each other to survive. Punk can play up the “honest man” role by admitting he was wrong about Barrett and give him back the Nexus so he can go into the MITB ppv as his own man.

I would have Cena do his same ol’ song and dance where he cuts jokes on Punk and doesn’t take him seriously.

At the pay per view (by crook) I would have CM Punk win the WWE Title from John Cena. Before he can start celebrating the entire RAW locker room runs out to the ring to stop CM Punk from taking the title belt with him. Punk runs into the crowd and celebrates as we all watch on in shock. The announcers have few words, things like “my god”, “what do we do now”, things like that.

At this point this angle could go two routes…

Route one:

CM Punk leaves with the WWE Title and the WWE sets up lawsuits against Punk to hand over the physical belt. At that point the WWE (behind the scenes, using personal Twitter accounts) starts creating rumors where CM Punk will show up next with the Title. Rumors will fly and speculation will begin to infest social media.  WWE decides to temporarily have the World Title defended on both shows until their legal issues with Punk are settled. At this point Cena takes a few months off to deal with the fact that he completely cost the company he loves so much their most prized possession, the WWE Championship. He’ll end up refocusing his efforts on the Mania match with the Rock when someone ends up stepping up to try to get CM Punk back… Stone Cold Steve Austin. This will first start on Twitter with Austin making mention of Punk and taking jabs at him. This will start picking up as more fans catch on. Finally rumors leads to Austin showing up on RAW where he cuts a promo on Punk taunting him and his straight edge life style. How Austin who loves to drink can beat the living hell out of Punk but it doesn’t matter because Punk is a chicken shit who took his ball and went home. Punk takes to Twitter with a cell phone-made video saying he isn’t fazed by Austin. This banter continues until Punk shows up to a “movie set” where Austin is filming his next movie and Punk beats the shit out of him. Of course the WWE gets footage of this to play on their shows. This completely builds so much tension that Punk finally agrees to wrestle ONE match against Austin for the WWE Title but it will be at WrestleMania 28. Austin gets one more match in plus saves the WWE Title from the turmoil it has been in for months. Punk gets the credit of being the most infamous man in WWE history and when he is ready to come back full time he will, coming back as the biggest heel in the WWE.

Route 2:

After CM Punk leaves with the WWE Title, the WWE strips him of the title and brings in a brand new belt which they have a tournament for.  CM Punk continues to carry around the “spinner belt” and claiming he is the true WWE Champion. Again WWE-created rumors flood social media as to where CM Punk the “WWE Champion” will show up. Pictures will show up on the internet of him backstage at other wrestling events with his championship although no one ever sees him on the actual shows. These rumors and WWE’s animosity continues to grow until Elimination Chamber next year where (player to be named later) wins the match and retains their WWE Title. After the match CM Punk comes out of the crowd and completely demolishes this person until he is run off  into the crowd similar to when Punk won the title at Money in the Bank. Through social media the WWE Champion and CM Punk push their own grievances and the WWE and Punk agree to do a Title vs. “Title” match at WrestleMania where Punk will lose his title and this champion will save the good name of the WWE Championship.

If the WWE is serious about “shaking things up” anything remotely close to these ideas would help for sure.

Again, I know neither one of these two things will actually happen but sometimes it is fun to play arm chair quarterback.

Capitol Punishment Preview

June 18, 2011

WWE Champion John Cena vs. R-Truth

Mascara De Fuego: John Cena. This is the match that needs to go to Truth. The WWE has done a great job in getting over Truth. He is the most unique heel on the roster. This build up in the last couple of months has worked and the pay off would be Truth on top if just for a brief moment. Problem is that although the WWE is doing a good job here, its still the WWE and they will instead put over another “John Cena defies all the odds once again” snuff match.

Great Puma: What will happen: John Cena wins. What I want to happen: R-Truth gets a clean victory over John Cena. Who else can make the name “Jimmy” have so many connotations? R-Truth has been on a tear in the last few months and he deserves a run with the title here. Truth is a wrestler who has paid his dues over the years and is now finally making use of his opportunity on the main event stage. Let’s hope this isn’t the last we see of R-Truth in a pay per view main event.

World Champion Randy Orton vs. Christian

Mascara De Fuego: Randy Orton. I hate the Christian turn, its forced and unnatural. They should have built to the full heel turn, every week slowly turning against the fans. Instead they just did a fast forward job on it which totally fucked it up giving it away in a matter of weeks. Smiley faced, baby kissing Orton wins.

Great Puma: Christian finally gets his title back. I actually think they’ll do it. I’d much prefer a face Christian winning the title here but I’ll take what I can get. Could the WWE be so predictable in pushing their favorite sons ALL the damn time? Hopefully, they’re realizing that pushing different talent adds interest.

The Miz vs. Alex Riley

Mascara De Fuego: Alex Riley. I have to say I am a little surprised how fast Riley has caught on with people. Whatever did the trick it would be just kill Riley (ala Kofi vs. Orton) if they don’t put this kid over. Miz has been getting bitched out a lot recently but his character can bounce back with this loss, Riley wont be so lucky since he’s so new to this portion of his career. Going from lacky, to being mentored to full time wrestler. If they are serious on building stars, they need to take the chance.

Great Puma: The Miz. The Miz will go over but I expect Alex Riley to whup his ass from pillar to post and then some. Miz will get a cheap victory and then Riley will still save face by finishing the Miz after the match. I wouldn’t book my former WWE Champion to lose to his former lackey. It just doesn’t sit well with me worked action soap opera or not.

Intercontinental Champion Wade Barrett vs. Ezekiel Jackson

Mascara De Fuego: Jackson. I’m going to hate this match, I can feel it. Such a shame too I did think this angle with the Corre was going to blow up and then it did but in a bad way.

Great Puma: Ezekial Jackson. Bobby Lashley/Brock Lesnar 2.0 is in effect. The WWE loves their big men and Jackson seems to gathering a following slowly but surely. After all was said and done, The Corre was merely a launching pad to Ezekial’s push to stardom. Sad.

The Big Show vs. Alberto Del Rio

Mascara De Fuego: Alberto Del Rio. Cool to see Show serious again and actually in a real feud but the WWE wont do shit with it. ADR needs to be built back up quick on RAW and hopefully this helps.

Great Puma: Alberto Del Rio. This is actually wishful thinking. Show coming back from being ran over is a sure sign that he’s winning this match. I hope it doesn’t happen because ADR hasn’t established himself as the number one heel on Raw like he was on Smackdown.

CM Punk vs. Rey Mystertio

Mascara De Fuego: Mysterio. Another classic here and I’ll never get tired of this feud. They need to start adding main event shit to these matches like #1 contenders matches like a best of 5 or something so they can make this feud more than just about the great matches. Give it a little more beef, substance.

Great Puma: Rey Mysterio. Like MDF, I never get tired of seeing these two wrestle. Perhaps these two could main event Summerslam in a steel cage in August. I doubt they’ll book it but Punk and Rey Rey always know how to put on the match of the night.

United States Champion Kofi Kingston vs. Dolph Ziggler

Mascara De Fuego: Ziggler… no Kofi… well, these two have been getting the same build with the extra promo packages and having the commentators build them up like they just started in this. Anyhow it will be a good match just not really excited for it.

Great Puma: Kofi Kingston. It’s sad that Kofi Kingston is becoming the Junk Yard Dog/Tito Santana of his era. A talented and well-beloved face that never gets the opportunity to run with a major title. There’s no reason to take the title off Kofi and there’s no reason to put the title on Dolph. I just hope they go above and beyond our expectations and wrestle a great match.
