So, CM Punk battles The Rock on Sunday. His promo while good was more of the same. Best in the World this. Best in the World that. And rehashing his lines from his promo where he said the people don’t matter. The interesting part, especially after The Shield attacked The Rock was that Vince, who botched his line, said that if The Shield interfere in Punk’s match, CM Punk will be stripped of the WWE Championship. The part that made me laugh was when Punk said the belt was prestigious again since he’s held it.
That belt has not been prestigious in years and CM Punk sure as hell hasn’t helped it any by holding onto the belt for over a year. Yeah 428 or whatever number days as champion. Impressive but there’s one slight problem and that is what are you gonna be saying when you lose the belt? Are you still going to call yourself the Best in the World? It didn’t really work for Chris Jericho. Because the fact is that once Punk loses that belt and once he’s the FORMER Champion, those 428 days are gonna mean precisely dick.
Chris Jericho was the first undisputed champion, but as the years went on, it became nothing more than just a little blip on the screen, nothing more than a pebble falling to the ocean and making zero impact. The biggest problem with CM Punk’s character right now is that without the belt, without his championship reign, his character is useless. It’s about as useless as a jar of Slim Fast to Vickie Guerrero. As much time and energy I guess as WWE has put into CM Punk, they might have put Punk himself in jeopardy. The Miz was in the main event at Wrestlemania two years ago. Look at him now, he’s trying to rebuild himself but still, he’s nowhere close to where he was years ago. Is this what we’re going to have to expect with CM Punk? Is the guy that keeps calling himself the Best in The World going to be reduced to where the only thing he’s best in the world at is being an after-thought.
