  • Yeah, I agree all the way. CM Punk hasn't done anything in WWE. No real great matches, great promos or anything. and outside of a few Raw appearances, and PPV's, he's been on ECW for the past 2 years. The casual fan probably has no real idea who he is.

    • His ECW Title win against Morrison was the only match of his WWE stint id say was a standout match. I mean, anyone whos watched any of his indy work knows the guy can wrestle, but, the WWE version of CM Punk is lightyears different from the WWE version in an alarming number of ways.

      • I don't think it's through any fault of his own that he hasn't had any great feuds. He has the mic ability and in-ring ability. He had some great feuds when he was in ROH so he definitely has it in him to have quality feuds its just those damn WWE writers.

        • Right, thats my point though. He hasnt been put in the situation to all of a sudden be the World Champion on the flagship show. He has all of the abilities, sure. But I mean, Elijah Burke has all of the abilities too. If Elijah Burke were to win MITB next year, flounder on the 3rd show while doing nothing, and then show up on Raw and win the world title, it would be the same exact thing.

            • I agree with what everyone has said. Even CM Punk's OVW stuff was awesome. Definitely feels rushed but F it, I'll take it. So long as they don't put him over as the paper champion that JBL was calling him...

              • Wow, I really didn't think WWE had the balls to do it.

                • I haven't been this excited for something they've done in a long time:

                  • It's amazing to see Punk carry the title. I just hope they can find someone worthwhile for him to feud with. If they do, that might bring me back to watching the WWE.

                    • Unfortunately, I think the perfect feud for him would be Edge. Or maybe even Randy Orton...

                        Can you please elaborate on this as I've never seen Punks indy work. I've only heard about his cult like following on the indy scene and to be honest when he first debuted on WWE TV I was a little disappointed but then I remembered he probably had to dramatically alter his style to fit the WWE TV style matches. I'm a pretty big fan of his now.

                        • Check youtube, there are some great matches of him against Eddie Guerrero, Raven, Samoa Joe, and tons of his ROH work and other indies.

                          Here's a great one, against Homicide (From TNA) when both were in ROH -

                            • Thanks Jay, Does anyone know who Atlas Ortiz is and where he came from? Do we really need another guy that looks like Carlito, isn't that gimmick infringement lol? Is Collin Delaney's gimmick just that he's the second coming of Mikey Whipwreck? Compared to Collin Mikey was like Big Show lol. When is John Morrison going to get to ditch Miz and get a big singles push?
