CM Punk's Hatred For McMahon, Controversial "Homo" Comment, WCW Contracts, MITB Favorites

Written by Richard Gray on Jul 6, 2011 - 10:36:38 AM

What are your thoughts on this CM Punk situation? I cannot see John Cena losing at Money in the Bank due to the "fired" stipulation and it seems WWE is moving into a great program between Vince McMahon and Punk, similar to what McMahon did with Steve Austin back in the Attitude Era. Would you agree?

As things currently stand it appears that CM Punk will be leaving WWE after Money in the Bank on July 17th as a WWE spokesperson stated this at this link. I have not heard the creative plan for Money in the Bank but if Punk is not going to re-sign (which looks like is the case) I have a hard time believing they will do anything other than feed him to John Cena. The CM Punk stuff is very entertaining and his promo on WWE Raw a couple weeks ago was excellent but the incident earlier in the week may have affected his negotiations for a new contract. We are working on obtaining full details.

What will be CM Punk's next move? Do you think he goes to Impact Wrestling? Do you think Punk knew what he was doing when he called that fan a "homo"?

No one I speak with seems to believe that CM Punk has Impact Wrestling on his mind. I think he would work in Ring of Honor before going there; however, it's always important for me to not that anything as possible. As for if Punk "knew what he was doing" at the house show on Monday, that is impossible for me to give a fair answer but I can give you my opinion. I believe Punk got carried away and obviously did not know he was being filmed. The incident got him a lot of backstage heat and as I mentioned in the question above, we are trying to figure out if the heat did indeed put an end to contract negotiations.

I just watched "The Rise and Fall of WCW" on DVD. What were some of the big contract prices and who were the big winners?

First of all I would recommend the Monday Night War DVD and "The Very Best of WCW Monday Nitro" over "The Rise and Fall of WCW" set as the latter featured a lot of canned footage from the Monday Night War DVD. As for the big contracts and big winners, workers such as Kevin Nash, had large guaranteed contracts with creative control. These large contracts "justified" lengthy main event pushes for everyone that had one while at the same time leaving workers that had small downsides left in the mid-card or in permanent enhancement roles. I do not have numbers and details on the contracts but you can look who was pushed in WCW throughout the years and you can see who had these loaded contracts.

Who do you feel are the two favorites to win the Money in the Bank ladder matches later this month? I would like to see Sin Cara get a push for the World Heavyweight Championship.

The obvious number one contender for the WWE Championship is Alberto Del Rio given what happened on WWE Raw with Sheamus being in line for a shot at the World Heavyweight Championship. I do not think Sin Cara is ready to get elevated to the main event as he is still in the "adjustment" period of his WWE career. I also want to be clear I am not giving you creative plans but rather my opinion. I have not heard the direction WWE plans on going but I am using information from current storylines. A case can be made for more workers in the Raw Money in the Bank ladder match rather than its Smackdown counterpart.
