CM Punk says Triple H “just doesn’t get it.”

September 22, 2011


Two of my favorite industry people, not named Paul Heyman, got together and discussed all things MMA and it’s effect on the sports entertainment business. CM Punk visited Arial Helwani’s MMA Hour show this week and some interesting tidbits were dropped. Here’s what CM Punk had to say about Triple H’s recent statement about how the UFC has to evolve:

“Triple H just doesn’t get mixed martial arts. he doesn’t watch it either. Saying the UFC needs to evolve, I guess he’s not wrong, but I think he’s missing the picture that UFC is evolving.”

The interview is twenty minutes well spent and is available right after the jump.


Transcript of CM Punk’s Promo on RAW

June 27, 2011

Here’s the transcript of CM Punk’s groundbreaking promo on RAW that melted Stone Cold Steve Austin’s TV.

John Cena, while you lay there, hopefully as uncomfortable as you possibly can be, I want you to listen to me.

I want you to digest this because before I leave in three weeks with your WWE Championship I have a lot of things I want to get off my chest.

I don’t hate you John. I don’t even dislike you. I do like you. I like you a hell of a lot more than I like most people in the back. I hate this idea that you’re the best. Because you’re not. I’m the best. I’m the best in the world. There’s one thing you’re better at than I am and that’s kissing Vince McMahon’s ass.

You’re as good as kissing Vince McMahon’s ass as Hulk Hogan was. I don’t know if you’re as good as Dwayne though. He’s a pretty good ass kisser. Always was and still is.

Whoops! I’m breaking the fourth wall! (CM Punk waves to the camera)

I am the best wrestler in the world.

I’ve been the best since day one when I walked into this company. And I’ve been vilified and hated since that day because Paul Heyman saw something in me that nobody else wanted to admit. That’s right, I’m a Paul Heyman guy. You know who else is a Paul Heyman guy? Brock Lesnar. And he split just like I’m splitting. But the biggest difference between me and Brock is I’m going to leave with the WWE Championship.

(more…)’s Top 5 Rankings: Legends reign supreme

April 12, 2011

The two writers of, Great Puma and Mascara de Fuego, got together with pro wrestling historian, Gustav Faraday Widmore, along with The Academy of Wrestling Arts & Sciences (AWAS) to put together the Top 5 professional wrestlers for the week of April 11, 2011. This list was based on in-ring performance, promos, consistency, favorite cereal and other measures. Wrestlers 3 through 1 are after the break.

5. The Miz

Mascara de Fuego – Miz is truly a superstar no matter what anyone says. This guy has worked his ass off to where he is now. Its no secret that I thought he wasn’t anything special when he first came to the WWE but he worked and worked at it and climbed to the top with hard work. He is a great character that finally defined his spot in the WWE main event at this year’s WrestleMania. Yeah, the match won’t go down as the best but it’s the little subtle things that happened during that match that furthered his spot. They had Miz dominating Cena, they had Miz kick out of the AA, its things like that that further push Miz further. The guy has worked his ass off and he deserves the spot he is at in the WWE.

Great Puma – Miz went from green to great in seven long years. He is living proof that hard work and passion pay off and yes…dreams do come true. Miz may never be at the work rate level of a Shawn Michaels or Chris Jericho but he doesn’t have to be. His greatest attribute is his ability to speak on the mic and connect with the crowd. He is now considered a top five entertainer when it comes to promos and he hasn’t even reached his peak when it comes to wrestling ability. Miz always seems to improve week after week and his latest match at WrestleMania is a strong indication of just how hard Miz is trying to improve. I look forward to seeing Miz wrestle a year from now just to see how great Miz is going to become. Miz is number 5 for now but there’s no reason he won’t be near the top of the list sooner than later.

4. (TIE) Rey Mysterio and Cody Rhodes

Great Puma – These two are tied for fourth because, together, they have created one of the most compelling feuds that doesn’t involve “Yabba Dabba” chants. In the weeks leading up to WrestleMania, Cody and Rey put forth great promos and even greater storytelling in the ring. Cody’s wrestling has been turned up a few notches and he was already performing at a high level. Cody’s addition of grittier mannerisms and roughneck brawling has made his in-ring work a pleasure to watch. Rey on the other hand is a mini-phenom. Like the Undertaker, Rey’s character and wrestling style have withstood the test of time and excelled in an age where wrestling fans are more fickle and educated than ever.

Mascara de Fuego – Rey and Cody put on one of the other solid matches at Mania this year. Rey is always a great performer to watch and pairing him up with Cody to get him over was very wise for who ever made that choice. When people look back at the career of Cody, they will look back to this match as the starting point to his rise to the top. What can be said about Rey that hasn’t already been said before, he’s a true wrestling legend. As battered and bruised as his body is at this point in his career, he still goes out there and doesn’t miss a step. Two talented individuals at number four.

IC Title Rematch
Wade Barrett and Kofi Kingston wrestle to a no contest

  • Kofi starts off hot but gets booted off a springboard attempt to the outside.
  • High Cross Body from the top by Kofi for two.
  • Kofi goes for Trouble in Paradise but Barrett boots the hell out of him in mid-flight.
  • Kofi actually hits Trouble in Paradise again but the Borre enter the ring.
  • Santino and Kozlov come in but get served.
  • Big Show and Kane come in the ring to play Giant and Big Red Captain Save-a-Ho’s.

~ It was what it was. They had to promote their Wrestlemania match. I’ve been looking forward to seeing the Borre getting plundered for weeks now. I’m also expecting to see a Wrestlemania Cobra sighting.
