CM Punk rant

So I’m just as devastated that CM Punk just up and left the WWE as everyone else. He’s second only to Chris Jericho in my WWE-loving heart. 

HOWEVER, the more and more I think about it the more and more I’m coming to the conclusion that he’s acting like a child.

Did he put in the work to main event WrestleMania? Absolutely.

Did he deserve to main event WrestleMania more than Batista? Abso-freaking-lutely.

But c’mon. Before he left he was still in the main event all the time. He was still booked strong. His spot in the top echelon of the company was secure. He’s the longest reigning WWE Champion of the modern era. And he’s complaining that he doesn’t get to close out WrestleMania? 

Come. On.

Not everyone is going to get what they want when they want it. You have to play the cards that you’re dealt and continue to show the company that, no matter what, you’re a hard worker. Not quit and leave both the fans and the wrestlers who you claimed you wanted to work with and put over (like DEAN AMBROSE) high and dry. 

Think about all those months (years?) Randy Orton was getting the shit end of the stick, being completely underused as a babyface on SmackDown. Dude HATES being a face. He practically fell into obscurity. But he didn’t complain. He didn’t quit. He continued to play by the rules and now he’s WWE World Heavyweight Champion.

Or what about Daniel Bryan? He’s been treated WAY WORSE than Punk in recent months. WAY FREAKING WORSE. But he soldiered on and now he’s been launched into potentially becoming the new face of WWE.

Punk needs to suck it up. Yes, there’s a lot more to the story that’s not being told and he was unhappy with the company for quite some time, and I understand that there’s only so much a person can take, but still. He shouldn’t have just up and quit like that. I’m hopeful he and Vince will be able to work it out and he’ll return, but I’m not holding my breath, either. 

In the mean time, the WWE Universe needs to continue to appreciate the wrestlers who are still there putting in the work for them, no matter what.


January 31, 1919: Jackie Robinson Is Born

On this day in 1919, baseball great and civil rights icon Jackie Robinson was born in Cairo, Georgia. Robinson smashed records and knocked down major social barriers on his way to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1962.

Happy birthday, Jackie! ^_^






- Dave Meltzer reported on the latest episode of Wrestling Observer Radio that with the addition of Summer Rae to Total Divas we should be seeing more of The Shield’s Dean Ambrose on the show. In WWE’s teaser for Season 2 it said:…

:’( I still won’t be watching lol…

Do. not. want.

"You’re just butt hurt Rizzo committed highway robbery on your organization."

I cannot even deal with the CM Punk stuff I just scroll past anything I see because I will burst out in a river of tears.
