Backstage News From Raw Supershow – CM Punk Makes Off Color Comments About Triple H Accompanying Floyd Mayweather To The Ring For Title Fight, Last Minute Change To The Main Event, Big WWE Injury Occurs, Punk Headed To Wrigley Field Later This Week

As I mentioned in today’s Ask WNW, WWE Champion CM Punk was in rare form backstage at last night’s Raw Supershow. I’m told Punk made a few off color comments regarding Triple H accompanying Floyd Mayweather to the ring for his title fight last weekend in Las Vegas. Punk took a shot at Hunter for not fully selling his “broken arm.” Many feel this has to do with the fact that WWE would not allow CM Punk to accompany Chael Sonnen to the octagon for his UFC fight earlier this year.

Speaking of Punk, there was a last minute change to last night’s Raw Supershow main event as the original plan was for Daniel Bryan to interfere in a singles match between Punk and Lord Tensai. The thinking was Punk wouldn’t look weak losing in a handicap match. The change is why Bryan didn’t have an intro and had very little in-ring time.

Punk had an icepack on the back of his head after the match, presumably from one of Tensai’s sloppy spots.

Punk has a busy week as he’s scheduled to throw out the ceremonial first pitch at the Chicago Cubs game against the Atlanta Braves at Wrigley Field on Wednesday.

    I think it might be time to pull the plug on Tensai… Gimmick change or take time off for in ring work.

    I'm guessing it was the botched sit down choke slam that hurt him. It looked horrible.

    The Baldo Bomb? Matt Bloom (Tensai, Albert) has been using that finisher for years.

    • Chromeydaniels

      He totally botched it last night though.

      • Philip Thompson

        Yes, it was clearly botched. His ring work is sloppy and he clearly shouldn't be getting pushed like he is. He's stealing a spot from somebody younger and more talented and more over.
