Your problem is with WWE, not Punk. They don't want him to play a Stone Cold like tweener.

You know what, take crowd reactions out of the picture entirely. That there are smarks who will cheer Punk regardless doesn't mean he's not playing the WWE heel style (i.e., a coward) to near perfection. Moreover, the crowds are idiots. Look at how much they cheer guys like Sheamus and Cena (well, the half of the crowd that is passionately pro-Cena), who often do not act like good guys. They will beat people up from behind. Sheamus is frequently racist, and Cena is a misogynist (just like The Rock), but they get cheered.

There's no question my problem is with the WWE, not Punk. I just hate that he has turned into a corporate puppet to some extent.

I also hate that they have used Cena so crappily over the years that he is just wasted now. By now Cena should have had 2 heel turns and been back to a good guy. I might not find him so annoying if he had.

And The Rock...well, let's not even go there.

What makes me even more reticent is that The Shield will probably turn out to be nothing more than The Nexus revisited and I'll start to get bored with it too.

And if they don't teach Ryback at least 2 more words to add to his vocabulary he will get more boring that he already is.

No idea. I'd like it to be Ziggler. He's long past overdue as far as deserving to win, and I think he could become a major face if they turn him. But del rio is a face, so that won't happen there, albeit he's a face that isn't really getting over.

Maybe turn Jericho, but he's off tv for a few weeks I think, to tour with his band or something.

It's not like they have a lot to choose from.

Turn Orton or Ryback if you have to. They need another legitimate main event heel badly. Jericho really isnt worth it because he will be gone after Mania anyway. Should be Rhodes Sandow or Barrett but this shitty booking keeps them in upper midcard hell.

Edit: I believe once Ziggler cashes in it will bump him up to ME status, provided he actually keeps the strap for an extended time.

Kinda cool to see them go from in-character to shooting, then back to character so quickly. But if I had to guess-based on my experiences at wrestling shows in the area-the average wrestling fan is pretty close to what I would consider stupid....

And I had to pause at his "we don't depict murder or rape" line. Katie Vick? Vince's limo explosion/his fake death? I guess we're not supposed to remember them since they happened before the PG Era, but still...

It does seem to be an obvious card. Still, I would rather see Taker than not. TBH though that has a lot to do with me being there. If Punk was somehow in the Main Event you are still looking at a Cena win. Still not sure what they are doing with the rest of the guys.

Yeah. I guess they throw Orton in with Sheamus and Ryback to face The Shield (although all three of the former should probably turn heel.

I still think it's stupid they don't open with a TLC match. I loved that about Mania. What they do with Ziggler is one of the things I am most interested in. Don't forget about Kane and Bryan. I would like to see Jericho vs. either Ziggler or Bryan. It also does seem like Henry is building for something.

Throwing Orton, Sheamus, and Ryback in a 6 man tag seems like such a waste and lazy. I would prefer(if they were demanding a big tag) that it be Sheamus and Ryback vs. the Shield with a stipulation on the line. As you mention, one of the 3 faces should turn heal. Orton is rotting right now. I was thinking they might turn Ryback heal to fight Sheamus during the one segment on Raw.

The Streak is so mythic now that it's actually counterproductive. The audience will never actually expect Taker to be in danger at a false finish, so the dramatic potential is neutered. Furthermore, if anyone were actually to end the streak, they'd probably face more fan resentment and backlash than actual rub.

I think punk is the perfect candidate though. Especially if Taker isnt planning on wrestling again next year. they could build it up as his last ever match and thus leave an opening for him to lose.

Which makes me wonder as to its purpose. He got to a round number, he's largely broken down, the last two matches of his that I saw were essentially drama-absent spotfests.

If they were going to put someone in with Taker they should do Lesnar. Another option would be Jericho, simply because he's the best worker on the roster and he has plenty of charisma to add to the match.

I was thinking Lesnar a while back before the HHH stuff. I thought he was going to end it with Cena next year but that may well be Rock v Cena 3. I think at this point they are looking at Wrestlemania XXX as the round number, not his win total.

They haven't brought HHH on camera yet since Vince's "hip injury" at Lesnar's hands, so Taker-Lesnar is not impossible. I don't think they'll go that route, I think it has to be Punk with some kind of Taker interference at the end of Raw Monday night, but anything's possible at this point.

Ryback is the special needs goldberg (i stole that from somebody somewhere).

I just wish we lived in a world where they could give Daniel Bryan a run like that. Where everything wasn't predicated on physique, and actual talent *as a wrestler* (in the ring and on the mic both) was what got guys pushed.

Won't happen as long as vince is alive. I do think (suprisingly) a lot of the pushes we've seen lately that might not have happened in the past (punk, specifically) have a lot to do with HHH. And he's clearly open to bringing in and developing indy wrestlers, so maybe the approach will change in time.

HHH has an appreciation for the "old school wresting" and wrestling's history (e.g. he loves Harley Race and has Harley's respect), so he knows the way for the industry to survive is to value work-rate/talent over appearance.

Cena's title reign starting at mania is probably going to be months of wins like tonight. Punk's was smoke and mirrors, and he wasn't even the main event in half the PPVs (or the main event for many of the Monday night Raws). Cena was the star of the show the whole time. Although it's better now than it has been thanks to Punk's strong work over the last few months. But he's an afterthought now. He'll be in what's at best the #3 match on the card, assuming it's Undertaker (and I don't know how it isn't after all the allusions he made tonight...). The whole show is built around Cena and Rock, with HHH and Lesnar getting whatever focus is left over.

I do thought it was great how much they let Punk have in this match tonight. It does help him continue to look like a star. But, unfortunately, in the end he's just a loser.

I know they're making the right move in terms of making money and selling PPV buys, but Rock/Cena is just so ****ing boring. It was boring last year, and it's going to be worse this year.

Well, really, he's always been a second tier guy, even when he had the title. Cena's title reign starting at mania is probably going to be months of wins like tonight. Punk's was smoke and mirrors, and he wasn't even the main event in half the PPVs (or the main event for many of the Monday night Raws). Cena was the star of the show the whole time. Although it's better now than it has been thanks to Punk's strong work over the last few months. But he's an afterthought now. He'll be in what's at best the #3 match on the card, assuming it's Undertaker (and I don't know how it isn't after all the allusions he made tonight...). The whole show is built around Cena and Rock, with HHH and Lesnar getting whatever focus is left over.

I know they're making the right move in terms of making money and selling PPV buys, but Rock/Cena is just so fucking boring. It was boring last year, and it's going to be worse this year.

Facing Undertaker though is a great draw and I think it will draw huge interest. Also I just think after Wrestlemania and Rock, HHH, Jericho, and Undertaker disappear the WWE doesn't have that many top level superstars outside of Cena, Punk and Sheamus. I guess that depends though on how long Brock sticks around as well.

Personally, at least tonight, I thought the third guy was the best.

Dean Ambrose is insanely good on the mic, always has been. The second guy is just the big bruiser of the group but he did his job being the super-intense monster on the mic. The third guy was Seth Rollins. When Seth first started out in ROH, he was absolutely awful on the mic. He is 5,000% better on the mic now than he was in the mid-2000's.

While Hunter is a bit old I did like the fact his segment ended with Lesnar in an old school crimson mask, had a couple chair shots and it appeared that Hunter pissed himself before the match.

I will say that when his music hits it is still pretty cool. That is great intro music.

After they put this group together I actually went out to YouTube to see more about each of them in their prior wrestling groups. I actually like Ambrose from a mic guy, although his wrestling skills could use some honing. Rollins, like you said, was pretty poor in his early years, but seem to get much better. I wondered why he wasn't the voice of this group until I saw Ambrose work the mic.

As for Reigns he is just the Wade Barret of the group...big, muscular and horrible on the mic. But I am sure being The Rock's cousin didn't hurt him when it came being hired.

From a casual watcher that used to be pretty avid, Ambrose is brilliant. Reminds me a lot of Larry Zabyszko.

Also, Cena vs Punk was an excellent match in my view. One of the best I've seen in a while, but it was obvious build up. And while I don't loathe Cena like a lot of you do, I was still pissed he got a clean pin after a match that good. Doesn't bode well for Punk who has become my favorite of all.

The comparison of Ambrose to Zbyszko is pretty much spot on....Ambrose on the mic reminds me alot of RoadDog, great on the mic and average in the ring.

The problem is that while Punk is never going to beat Taker, at least he had some momentum to sell the match a month or so ago. There were ways to get Punk out of the Rock or Cena feud and still have Punk keep some momentum. They have him end both by clean losses and now he has no momentum at all.

I've never seen him go heel. So I don't know about that. But I think he's come a long ways from the rapping bullshit that he was doing the last time I saw him. He's playing the classic good guy. I dunno, I'll learn more as we progress to Mania. I've been tuning in to Raw and Smackdown for the last few weeks. Watching the pay per views (not that I'd ever pay for them) and keeping track.

I'm just going to go ahead and say something you guys have probably been saying for years. CM Punk is an absolute super star. He is one of the very best wrestlers I have ever seen regardless of era.

No, he's not some juiced up monster, and I watched his bio. Clean living and all of that jazz. His spot he did last May or whenever it was, was hands down the most captivating promo I've ever witnessed. "Breaking the 4th wall" or whatever it was, it was just incredible.

His in ring skill is really 2nd to no one I can think of. I'll bet he and Jericho have had some epic matches. I remember the one I saw a couple of weeks ago was a fucking clinic.

This is the first time I've marked out like this on a wrestler in the better part of a decade. I'm starting to believe he is the best in the World, and maybe the best of all time. He would've killed it in the Attitude era, and he may be the only guy on the roster who you could say that about.

Yep. Cena is a mediocre wrestler at best. Yet through Punk, he was able to have one of the best matches I've seen in a long time on Raw. Seriously how Punk carried him is awe inspiring at saddening at the same time. Why on Earth the best wrestler, best on the mike and far and away the best heel isnt in the main event at wrestlemania is just sickening.

Obviously I'm not behind the scenes, but I get the sense that he's this generation's Shawn Micheals, a guy who doesn't fit the prototype of what Vince McMahon wants, can cause all kinds of trouble backstage, but works his ass off, is convinced he's great, and makes himself a star.

You are basically talking about Ring of Honor circa 2003-2004. If the WWE could get away from their dumbass prototype that says Ryback is awesome because he is a roided up freak, they could open up and actually be entertaining again by bringing in guys that can actually work in the ring. Guys on the TNA roster like Joe and Austin Aries would be a great start. They have some indy guys currently like Ambrose, Rollins, Kassius Ohno (Chris Hero) and El Generico that are all great workers. You have a lot of guys in ROH that would be great, like the Briscoe Brothers, Kevin Steen, Davey Richards, Eddie Edwards, etc. But they have to get away from the "taller and musclebound is best" bullshit.

Ok took some time to think bout wrestle mania

I'm sorry I just don't get it it seems like wrestlers are doing what's best for them not what's best for the company. I also can't believe Vince McMahon is letting this happen.

Examples:

Cena vs Rock : cena needs his ego soothed after losing last year

Should happen: cena finally goes heel and cheats to win with the shield or something total swerve no one sees coming.

What will happen: cena will win congratulate rock and say he did it for all the fans making every real fan throw up.

HHH vs Lesnar: Hunter needs to win to feed his ego

What should happen: Vince makes HHH lose siding with Lesnar

What will: Hunter will squash him and entire McMahon family come out and celebrate. Ummm boring.


Finally Undertaker vs Punk: this could be a great match wonder how much dead man has left.

What should happen: love both these guys but punk should win and then brag bout ending the streak and he wants his title back.

What will happen: undertaker feeds his ego beats punk and retires never losing on wrestle mania. It is cool to end it this way but would be better if punk is tough in this match if they shake hands and taker says punk is toughest sob he has ever faced. This would further launch his career. Taker has allways done this so this is a possibility.

Overall pretty predictable mania hopefully I'm wrong and shockers happen.

Rock vs Cena.
Cena unfortunately wins because Rock "coming back" is only temporary. This sucks because Cena is a giant tool. Even if he turns heel he's still a tool. He will always be a tool, and he just needs to jump off a cliff to be quite honest. But little kids love him and he's the poster child for the PG era of WWE/Raw.


Undertake vs. CM Punk
I just don't think the WWE will tarnish a record on one of their greatest stars ever, one that put the company on the map, for someone that no one will know/remember in 20 yrs. CM Punk isn't a larger than life star, in fact no one really is except "maybe" Cena and only because he's been used over and over again as the company's poster child.

There wouldn't be a better time to turn him. But they'll never turn him. He's the company's hero to little kids, he sells tons of merch, he's their only regular roster mainstream media capable guy outside of the miz.

From what I have always read Taker has always had the locker room in mind when making decisions, with the exception of the streak. It's not like he has been some title driven guy.

they tried doing this during his 404849082 day run with the title. They put CM Punk on every comic con, panel, and local news station they could and it just didnt stick as well as it does with Cena.

Pretty nothing show so far. The Michaels/HHH/Brock segment was okay, but nothing people haven't seen 3000 times already. I thought Punk's backstage interview was really good. And I thought the Rock was really great. Otherwise not much to get me excited for mania. Definitely not buying this year.

We'll see what Taker does "eviscerating" punk verbally.

In terms of advancing his character, they absolutely should turn him. His character gets heat that only X-Pac could understand.

But they are a business first now, so they won't. He pushes too much merchandise and fulfills an ungodly amount of make-a-wish requests.

They'll tease it every year around this time in hopes of getting the people that hate him on his side. It doesn't work and he'll be back to his ol' trick the following Raw. Maybe if they didn't fuck up so much at development.....

Oh and Punk is definitely losing. They wouldn't burn takers streak on someone who won't be on TV for awhile post mania.

I'm a huge punk mark, but that closing segment was awful. Paul E dressed up as Paul B was funny for about .5 seconds in a "holy shit they didn't" sort of way, but it was just crap after that. Pouring ashes on him? WTF.

It cost me a little bit of cash, but a little while back a guy was selling literally EVERY ECW show from '93 onward, including PPV's, on iOffer. Some guy taped every show on VHS (including hilariously awful commercials) and transferred them to dvd. That is some good 90's rasslin. 1995 was a fun year for ECDub, when they had guys like Foley, Guerrero, Benoit, Malenko, Funk, Public Enemy, Perry Saturn and the very early days for ECW mainstays like Dreamer, Taz and the Dudleys.

Punk/Undertaker is all I'm interested in. How they'll sell the audience on a false finish like the tombstone last year (or was that the year before? either way). That whole match will be about trying to convince everyone that Punk can win despite everyone knowing that he won't. There should be something awesome in that match.

I'm not interested in seeing HHH beat Brock. I'm also not interested in seeing them set up Shawn/HHH for next year.

I'm not interested in seeing Cena beat Rock.

I could not possibly be less interested in anything than either Ryback/Henry or the dancing fat guys against whoever it is that's the other team in that match.

I love Jericho, but I'm not interested in seeing him try to make Fandango look good.

I'm not interested in seeing them waste singles talent like Ziggler and Bryan in a mixed match.

I'm mildly interested in how they keep the Shield strong, if they do that. But I'm not interested in seeing them either lose to the 3 faces, or win with Orton turning.

Just a lame looking card.

The Dudleys would generate molten nuclear heel heat at their apex in ECW. Heyman definitely knew how to create great heels. Hell, the guy made even Justin Credible be someone that the crowd would buy into as a heel.
