I was hoping the Vengence PPV would give me something to cut CM Punk some slack, but his latest performance has just further re-affirmed that CM PUNK sucks balls - especially now with his new GIMMICK of being PG SUPER CM Punk.
Yes, the *PG SUPER CM Punk* who claims to have no-gimmick is indeed a gimmick.
Heck, even the Maxim article calls CM Punk the *NEXT* wrestling megastar. The emphasis on the word NEXT ... not NOW ... NEXT. Meaning, CM Punk is not quite there yet ... which is so true!
Ever since the end of MiTB, CM Punk has gone down hill. He doesn't even get a POP from the crowd. Sure, there are the occasional CM PUNK chants but nothing ear shattering like how it was in Chicago (his hometown) for MiTB.
I am also one who didn't think there was anything spectacular about Punk's pre-MiTB promo because it was clearly part of a storyline. All the guy did was insult the McMahons. Who hasn't insulted the McMahons! And the guy had been announcing for weeks that he was going to leave the WWE. Clearly, he was doing what he was allowed to be doing.
Let's face the reality. CM Punk is in the league with the light-heavy-weights like Christian, The Miz, Cody Rhodes, and Jeff Hardy. As HHH calls him, CM Punk is a "skinny fatazz".
The problem with CM Punk is indeed his "skinny fatazz". He looks like a whimp. He is no Stone Cold Steve Austin.
When I say he is no Steve Austin, what I'm saying is that CM Punk cannot realistically beat up anyone he please at any time he wants. It doesn't look realistic to have Punk run to ring, beat every one up, and clear the ring like Austin could do.
We've seen this FAIL a couple times with Punk already. CM Punk's run-ins with Kevin Nash were a disaster. It didn't look realistic that Punk could make good on his threats to "kick Nash's azz". More like Nash kicked Punk's azz. Hence, Punk looked like a little boy against Nash, which is probably why Vince didn't want Punk to feud with Nash because he knew it would diminish Punk's *myth*.
This has always been the problem with Punk. Hence, why Vince has always paired Punk up with a BIG MAN in order to increase Punk's intimidation factor.
So the WWE creative is stuck with how to capitalize on CM Punk's rise as a BABYFACE. They've given Punk lots of time to do more promos, but all those post-MiTB promos sucked! They were so boring because all he did was insult the McMahons and HHH, and complain about not getting opportunities - which is BS.
CM Punk is indeed a ONE-HIT WONDER with his promos!
The guy also looks like he can't *physically* hold his own against his bigger opponents the last few months: Cena, Del Rio, and HHH. And he is not the *best wrestler in the world*. Far from it!
And now CM Punk is buddy-buddy with all the babyfaces, including Cena and HHH?!
CM Punk is now PG?!
CM Punk has become everything he said he hated about the WWE! Hypocrisy!
I'll admit, the WWE is indeed trying to maximize their profits on CM Punk's merchandise sales by keeping him a PG Super CM Punk babyface.
But the best thing for wrestling would be to turn CM Punk heel and have him form a new stable with Awesome Truth and Kevin Nash that will cause chaos in the same manner that the nWo did when they first formed.
It's not realistic for CM Punk to be SUPER CM Punk. Let Punk win by cheating through the help of this new stable.
But it doesn't look like this will happen. CM Punk will remain PG Super CM Punk for awhile.
Hence, CM Punk officially SUCKS!
