More On CM Punk's Condition At Raw, Why John Cena Went Over Clean, What You Can Expect In Cena vs. The Rock II

Shares 368

We noted earlier that CM Punk worked this week's WWE Raw while battling through an illness.

We're told he had a stomach virus and he didn't like the way his promo came across. Punk felt the promo didn't come off as clean as he wanted and cited the fact that he felt like crap. The illness did cause Punk to get tired quicker than normal but he was so into the match, he was able to prevent his condition from hurting the match's quality.

The reason John Cena went over Punk clean was to build Cena back up for his Wrestlemania 29 main event against The Rock. The fact of the matter is there isn't anyone else on the roster Cena could have beaten to give him the momentum needed for his Wrestlemania program.

Look for the writing team to underscore Cena's redemption as a promotional aspect of his WWE title match against The Rock.

    Reminiscent of Michael Jordan’s Game 5 flu game against the Utah Jazz. One of Punk’s most memorable moments comes when he is in one of his worst conditions of health. That’s respectable!

    Cena blows!!

    • Couldn’t agree more. And for those people that will come out and defend him & call me a hater, all I can say is stealing moves from others and then claiming them as your own doesn’t mean jack. First, he puts Punk into the Crippler Crossface, then a sitout powerbomb, known in the E as the Batista Bomb, and last a Frankensteiner, known south of the border as a hurricanrana? Seriously? To me, he’s now down to 4 Moves of Doom!

      • Then you must hate Punk also because most of his moveset is “stolen” from Japanese wrestlers, the Macho Man and Jerry Lawler.

          Punk pops off one pile driver and you say he’s stealing from Lawler. Lots of guys use the pile driver.

          • It was a joke, I was just responding to thepowerserge who agreed with Chris that Cena blows because he “steals” moves from other wrestlers.

  • Chris

    He didn’t like the promo? If that was “bad” then nobody on the roster can ever be better than horrible.

      That promo wasn’t all that good.
