— WWE’s new “Are You Serious?” YouTube show is a direct copy of Colt Cabana and Marty DeRosa’s $5 Wrestling project. WWE producers working on the “Are You Serious?” show were specifically told to create something similar to Cabana’s show.
It’s believed that Punk was trying to quietly arrange the appearance to make waves and get some attention for both himself and WWE. WWE was not happy with the idea of Punk appearing on another company’s program so they nixed the appearance. As noted last week, Punk still attended the show and was backstage.
