– Did CM Punk blade, did Punk not blade; the bottom line is the current WWE Champion is going to “push the envelope” every time until it is pushed back. These are the exact words I was told by one of my sources regarding the steel cage match against Jerry Lawler on this week’s WWE Raw. The match was an “old school” cage match with an “old school” feel and Punk wanted juice and that’s what we got. Since there was no clear shot of Punk blading there will be no backlash because he can always claim the blood came the hard way.
– There was an indirect shot taken towards Jon Jones on this week’s broadcast during one of the CM Punk/Jerry Lawler segments. The dig came when Lawler said something to the tune of he was a man and didn’t back down from a fight. I was assured this was because of Punk’s friendship with Chael Sonnen.
– If you thought this week’s WWE Raw
sucked was lackluster, you aren’t alone. Vince McMahon was reportedly infuriated about how bad the broadcast was and was ranting the show looked second rate. Vince didn’t like the match lineup, specifically mentioning David Otunga vs. Zack Ryder, the tag match involving Brodus Clay and Sin Cara and Ryback looking bad in his match against Jack Swagger. One source said Vince was throwing a tantrum, calling out the producers in front of people. I’m told it’s a long show and everyone is burned out and now the frustration is getting played out on live television.
