How Long Will Punk’s WWE Title Reign Last ?

300 days has already past and the strap is still remains on the waist of the best in the world CM Punk. After countless victories from clean win to typical heel finish, Punk has maintained to evolve through out each PPV and make himself an interesting champion. But this post just begs the question of when will Punk’s reign end ?. It’s no suprise that Punk is a crowd favourite from his jaw dropping shoot promo to his weekly epic promos on Raw. His in ring skills clearly match up to his mic skills and let’s face it he’s even good on commentary. With The Rock already being penciled in for a match for the WWE Title at RR, does that mean the title will finally change hands to the people’s champ, The Rock ?. It’s a prediction many have already guessed as an easy one. Many of the post 98 Attitude Era fans believe it’s time for The Rock to change the course of WWE. But even if this is the case how long til Rock leaves for a consecutive countless time. Is it even fair the The Rock gets an easy gateway to a title match, or is this silly questioning because he’s The Rock ?. He’s no doubt one of Vince’s most prized possesions in WWE, but does that mean he should get title matches whenever and wherever. A bit off topic there, and to save you from the illerate messages I’ll be recieving, yes I am a huge mark for The Rock, but everybody has a moment in their prime where they are the best (well not everybody), but in my opinion The Rock has past his prime and CM Punk hasn’t which means one thing. In today’s wrestling world Punk can put on a better match then Dwayne. But let me crank it back a notch to what I think the future holds for Punk’s current 336+ days title reign. I believe Punk will hold onto the strap til Rumble but will lose from a 5 star match with The Rock, it’s hard to admit but one of the most greatest WWE title reigns today will come to a drastic end.

Night of Champions: Thoughts

Not a bad ppv in any form, it had it’s flaws but managed to keep me entertained throught the whole show. The 2 matches that had the most impact in my opinion was Orton/Ziggler and Cena/Punk. Ziggler delievered like he does every PPV, just cut out perfectly! I didn’t have an argument in sight for this match as from the start to the end I was glued to my tv. Where does this leave Orton is the primary question, It looks like he’s either getting a WH title shot or this feud just isn’t over yet. Ziggler has run his course of being Mr Money In The Bank, I think it’s safe to say that it’s about time he becomes WH champion. It’s going to happen sooner or later, and every next PPV people have ziggler cashing in as one of their predictions. The two big possibilities now are either HIAC or Survivor Series. To be honest I don’t see why they didn’t let Ziggler cash in at NOC, the moment was quite perfect, I doubt Sheamus & Del Rio are going to continue to feud and it would make sense since the ppv is titled “Night of Champions”. Well whenever Ziggler is cashing it better be a huge pay off no pun intended. The other match that made such an impact to me: Punk vs Cena. Was a brillaint story from when the bell was rung til the ppv was over. I like many others that were watching the ppv legally and illegally had cena pinned down as the new champion. They were in boston, it all seemed to add up but from the bridge pin it seemed like that was in fact the case til the match was pronounced a draw. I was really glad that the title didnt change hands and if it did what a dreadful way to end Punk’s 300 something long title run. Seems like WWE have put enough stock into Punk to have him hold on that strap a lot more longer, and I’m okay with this. Punk isn’t getting stale he unlike most champions today evolves. Punk is what’s keeping the WWE in order and without champions like Punk I’m sure this product would slowly be going down hill. By the way how awesome was Heyman, he was a great addition ring side I hope theres more to come from him. But to put it short and sweet, great PPV what made it even more awesome was JBL’s commentary he was brilliant I’ve read he’ll be commentating on Raw as well, let’s just hope he permantely takes Lawler’s spot on commentary.

Raw 7/30/12 Thoughts.

Right off the bat from the 1000th episode, the 3 hours begins. My first initial thoughts prior to watching Raw this week was that they’ll have plenty of useless segments & majority of it will cover the social media w/ tout & twitter. Not that I was fully negative going in to Raw, but I was pretty much correct. This weeks Raw was in fact piled on with unnecessary segments, touts/twitter & recaps of last week’s 1000th episode to fill in the time gaps. Not that those segments were all unnecessary I can’t say I hated Bryan’s segment with that doctor & his tantrum he threw in the ring, all parts of why he plays such a great heel. But under the layers of no match fillers, there were great segment and great matches.

Punk opening the show, was a brilliant idea. It jumped straight to the point of why he did what he did last week. From the looks of his entrance, Punk shared some shades of a heel as he silently walked down the ramp. Punk’s body language rubbed off as a heel, but that point was made towards the end of the show. But his confrontation with Lawler was solid, and it really spoke volumes towards his heel turn. Punk really has a way with his words where he leaves you convinced but he’s still playing the bad guy. It’s what makes Punk so damn good on the mic !. And it was also refreshing to see somebody call out Lawler on his terrible terrible commentary. I dug Punk’s explanation to why he gave Rock the GTS, it’s similar to Cena’s beef he had w/ Rock months ago. Pretty much your generic ‘you left the company and then show up after years wanting the spotlight’. It’s nothing short of the same reason behind Cena’s beef towards The Rock months ago. But I can see Punk putting on a whole better spin on this as the weeks follow up to the Rumble

AJ as GM wasn’t as disappointing as I thought it would be. I’m glad she dressed for the role, shades of Stephanie McMahon as Smackdown GM with the white collar & black suit. I thought it was pretty interesting, I like that her and Bryan still have some issues to deal with that was a little fun part for Bryan but I’m worried about what direction he’s heading in next. Kane ambushed him which says to me a feud for SummerSlam, which I don’t mind. At least Bryan is feuding with a wrestler who can actually carry out a full match. I wasn’t much of a fan of his street fight match w/ Sheamus, brawling outside of the ring… kinda not my thing.

I thought the best match on Raw this week was the tag team match. Both were excellent teams, felt good seeing Christian & Jericho reunite as a tag team after so long. Ziggler tore it up, I thought he did his best work with Christian in this match. Ziggler sold that spear like a fucking boss. Incredible stuff from all 4 men, glad to see this Jericho/Ziggler feud progress. Hopefully SummerSlam will see these two guys stealing the show more then Brock & Triple H.

Cena & Big Show’s #1 contender match for a title shot at SummerSlam was pretty bland, Punk’s commentary help lift this match for the most of it. Big Show throwing Cena into Punk was pretty rad. But the end outcome was pretty dumb, I was hoping for a clean Cena win. But I guess Show isn’t done with the main event spotlight, Triple Threat match ? I don’t know if I can dig it. I thought Punk & Cena were already penciled in for SS. I guess they didn’t want to duplicate last year’s SS main event.

Overall solid show, I haven’t checked the ratings it got, but I doubt it topped last weeks episode. I really hope they don’t continue with the irrelevant segments like Vickie dancing which sadly went over 10 minutes. And showing recaps is understandable but I found the recap of last week’s Heyman/Triple H/Lesnar segment annoying to be played 2 times, especially since it’s quite a lengthy clip. If next week progresses with less unnecessary segments and more matches like an actual Divas match, then we could be working with a solid show. Otherwise WWE’s attempt to fill in 3 hours is going to look dumb and desperate to fill in time gaps with irrelevant segments that you know are done to help use up the extra time.
