What's wrong with HHH thinking Punk was being unprofessional? If I were he and this was true, I would have suspended Punk without pay.If I were Punk, I would tell him to stick his pay up his arse.

VSG

HHH is well within his rights to think Punk unprofessional, he walked out on a contract after all. But once again, I SPECULATE that HHH is probably pretty offended the Punk doesn't really want to work with him, because the only thing bigger than Mr. "I AM THIS BUSINESS"'s nose, is his ego.

Are you really thinking Punk had no clue that he would have a payoff against HHH after the months of him fighting HHH and Kane's authority? Whether he liked it or not is up to him, but it makes no sense to have Punk into the title scene without settling scores with Kane at the very least.

What are you even talking about? I'm not talking about that at all. I'm just saying Punk doesn't want to work against HHH. Which I find hilarious and think it secretly hurts HHH's feelings because he thinks he's god.

And Punk was obviously aware of the direction, he was just not happy with it.

VSG
01-30-2014, 03:37 PM
I am saying that Punk would have known for ages that he would be facing HHH given his storyline, so why wait till Monday to walk out? Assuming all this is true lol.

Also, it does not matter if HHH thinks he is incredible or not- the booking done so far will need a Punk/HHH match to really culminate the storyline. I am not saying the booking was good, but that's how I see it anyway.

I would go a step further to say Punk is trying to make a stand for DB. Trying to get a feel for the story without talking to Punk is difficult but fuck it if ryan clark can rattle off made up info without naming one single source so can I.

Punk is bitter/worn out/fed up of no progression. The 1 step forward 2 steps back thinking of who calling shots. It's not as much about not being in the title hunt because Punk is smart enough to know you don't need the title to be over or sell merch. But if you are a guy who has worked 50 minutes on Sunday night with no mention or fanfare from the announce team and here comes batista out of shaped and gassed for 10 minutes of work then your friend who has busted his ass all year is backseated STILL when its obvious the direction the crowd wants is DB , then why not say F it and bail

his only direct quote was on twitter that read "the view never changes"

The Dastardly One
01-30-2014, 03:39 PM
But we aren't talking about the same thing at all, you're making points about my posts that I'm not talking about. He chose Monday to walk out because he obviously reached a boiling point. the HHH storyline is ONE of the things he's not happy with. It's not like he was JUST informed of it and was like "THAT'S IT I'M OUT OF HERE"

It was just one of many things obviously pissing him off. Icing on the cake was Batista getting the title shot and not Daniel Bryan.

Yeah, I think you're missing what Dale is getting at VSG. I think Hunter's ego has probably taken a massive hit by all this, if it is true that Punk didn't see having a match with him as high enough calibre.

VSG
01-30-2014, 03:54 PM
All I am saying is that HHH being butt hurt is a huge assumption. If Punk wants to be in the title scene, good for him. But where I am coming from, Punk over HHH at Wrestlemania is a worthy main event.

As I said, it was pure speculation. But let's get serious, it's not like it's grasping at straws. HHH THE GAME THE CEREBRAL ASSASSIN THE KING OF KINGS gracing Punk with a match is supposed to be a big deal, and Punk said "Nah, no thanks, I'm good".

VSG
01-30-2014, 04:01 PM
I guess my issue with the assumption was not just that he got butt hurt, but that he is hiding behind the "Punk was unprofessional" excuse instead.

Anyway I am thinking too much into this, fuck HHH and fuck Punk. We will just see what happens. If this all was a massive work, then good for them.

The Dastardly One
01-30-2014, 04:06 PM
Yeah but I could see him fighting Vince a little extra hard tooth and nail because of the shot to his ego, just my view on things. Regardless of the fact that HHH IS THIS BUSINESS and knows it's just business, he's a human being like the rest of us, and has a big ego, and would let that get in the way of things, I think. Especially considering Vince wants to mend fences, and what Vince says, goes.

NormanSmiley
01-30-2014, 04:15 PM
Punk flat out said "dave is my friend but now is not the time for him to be here, its Daniel Bryan's time"

same sentiment I think for HHH, I think if it made sense and added something to the whole scheme of it he would be a team player but I think Punk sees it more for what it is

2 years ago "hey punk we are going with Cena/Rock so we are gonna give you Jericho and they are going on last not you

last year, hey same thing as last year but this time you get to have the undertaker

this year, we found another guy to come back and be in the main event so what about you and HHH on 4th?

agree Dale, for me the appeal to the story is Punk put himself in a position to say no thanks when his name can generate some buzz outside WWE and show how much the people in charge have their heads up their ass

Damian Rey
01-30-2014, 04:23 PM
If true, I don't think Punk magically decided Monday would be it. He's been more than vocal in the past about part time guys/retreads coming in and taking main event spots. We know having to see Rock main event 2 years in a row didn't make him happy, but it can be argued easily that Rock was a huge deal and was "best for business" as a draw. Batista is not, and never was. He was always second fiddle to Cena, and now he comes back, with one match, and gets auto penciled into the main event. I can completely understand how that would be the tipping point for Punk.

I also would understand that the idea of working with HHH is an underwhelming one. Outside of Mr. Steele, did anyone really enjoy his matches with Lesnar. The first two bored me to the point that I didn't bother with the third. His matches with Taker weren't anything special either, and are book ended by two classics with HBK and CM Punk. Not to mention, the last time I remember Punk and H having a match, during the summer of Punk, H won with a pedigree, 1-2-3, after a clusterfuck of run ins. Then ends the show crotch chopping the hottest name in the company to end the show.

So yeah, Punk having little to no interest in a match with H is not surprising at all. I get that walking out is unprofessional, and H having his ego stepped on a bit is only natural, but he, Vince and WWE need Punk a lot more than Punk needs them. Replacing his merch sales, the live crowds that cheer him, and his ability to put on matches with just about anyone is not going to be easy, and there's no one currently on the roster in position to take his spot.

I'm just imagining HHH trying to process Punk not allowing himself to get forced into working with him.

"HE...doesn't wanna work with ME.... no that doesn't make sense.... just give me a second.... HE... doesn't wanna work with ME...." and it all manifests itself as him going "C'mon Vince he walked out, he's unprofessional we don't want him back."

lol it's all subjective... I didn't see the first one but I wasn't particularly swept away by the hell in a cell match. It was good, but not eye popping. Though honestly I enjoyed the summerslam and extreme rules matches with Brock, but I'm a big Lesnar mark.

I do find in funny that the idea of him being butt hurt by CM Punk not wanting to work with him is so unfathomable to some. If someone didn't want to work with me I'd be pretty fucking pissed lol.

CSL
01-30-2014, 05:58 PM
thought the "first" one was good, thought the HIAC match was pretty much the perfect "sports entertainment" match, had absolutely everything and could pretty much have only been performed on that level by maybe 2 or 3 other living guys not already involved in the match.

As for the other point, I'm steering clear. It's already basically become "internet fact" that Triple H is pissed off because Punk doesn't want to work with him/is one of the defining factors in him quitting WWE. All of which is still nothing but complete speculation.

Well I have no problem speculating, and honestly from everything Punk has said (he answered questions in his q and a and whatnot) it seems pretty consistent with it all.

I love wrestling and I love speculating and going along with the news, afterall it's our only window into it all. Not everything is going to be completely accurate, (see: Curtis Axel's blown out hips) but this seems somewhat cut and dry.

And it ISN'T a fact that HHH is pissed off with Punk for not wanting to work with him, I just find it fucking hilarious that Punk doesn't want to work with him, and it seems pretty logical that HHH would be butt hurt about that. There's nothing wrong with having some fun, we're all marks here at the end of the day.

Compared to the HBK series and match with Punk, the HHH series was not very good. The HITC match was better, but not on the level of those other 3. It is all subjective, but I don't dig those matches/hail them as classics like I'm sure quite a few people do. I found them to be boring, drug out signature move fests. Especially the first one. Lot of laying around going on in both, and again, in my view, particularly the first one.

tbh the "Punk doesn't want to work with him" part is probably the part I find the most difficult to believe. This has been something that has been reported online for some time now which means A. it's bollocks or B. Punk has known for quite some time now that that was the plan for him. Don't see how that equates to him suddenly becoming so disillusioned with the whole direction/program. Seems to conveniently fit the story more than anything.

I don't need to read it, I've read all of "the news items" pertaining to it. Work or not, there's clearly something going on. I'm just not yet about to buy into Punk going from Punk being the way he was in that Helwani interview, which was shot Thursday or Friday to "I'm upping and leaving now" after the PPV/before Raw. Yeah he's a bit disillusioned, this is blatantly obvious and he's one of those guys that won't just stick around for the cash. But the Triple H stuff? Not buying it. Has to be more to it/something else if it's legit. The most "interesting" thing I've heard mentioned is the concussion talk. He did take that chokeslam through the table at the Rumble (which I thought at the time seemed somewhat unnecessary after going 50+ minutes and Kane already getting his heat by eliminating him)

The Dastardly One
01-30-2014, 06:24 PM
But we're not saying HHH is the only reason he's leaving, it's just one thing he's disgruntled with

The Dastardly One
01-30-2014, 06:31 PM
Sorry let me explain further. I don't think anyone believes that Punk has any beef with HHH, or hates him or anything like that. From what has been reported, it is one of the many things that is pissing him off. He just doesn't see it as a direction he cares to take his character, and even more grating is Dave Batista is now in a main event with Randy Orton after not being around for a long time... winning the royal rumble after he got his ass kicked for 50 minutes and got chokeslammed through a table. And on top of all of that, D Bry, his good buddy whose one of the hottest guys in the company was in the curtain jerker and not booked in the rumble, when he thought (right or wrong) it was his year.

THEN like you said, there's the concussion stuff, which is confusing everyone even more. The HHH stuff was just a little fodder and I found it particularly amusing. He didn't want to work with HHH, and now HHH is telling Vince not to bring him back because he finds him unprofessional.

Give him time train under pressure. One of three things will happen. He'll either excel and leave me as the only person who is right in the room, or he'll get a solid mid card status for a while until he turns heel and Cena eats him in a supplemental feud while Randy is suspended for his 8th second strike, or he'll kill himself and he's not our problem anymore.

CM Punk Chants At NXT + Punk Signs Confiscated
By Ryan Clark on Thursday, January 30th, 2014 at 10:53 PM ET
– RingsideCollectibles.com has released the image of their upcoming exclusive CM Punk action figure, which is Punk when he was in WWE’s version of ECW. You can check out the pic at the link posted. The figure will be available to pre-order at Ringside Collectibles soon.
– Pro wrestling legend, announcer, and trainer Les Thatcher recently recorded a 90-minute guest spot on Wrestler’s Eye Radio talking about the CM Punk situation with Punk walking out of the WWE.
– Fans at tonight’s WWE NXT tapings at Full Sail University in Winter Park, Florida were reportedly chanting for CM Punk throughout the show.
– Also, CM Punk signs were being confiscated by security at the taping. At one point, fans were asked to chant “NXT” to the opening of a TV episode. Instead, there was a sizable Punk chant from the fans. As you can imagine, this don’t go over well with WWE officials. Triple H, who is said to be extremely upset over the CM Punk situation and feels disrespected, was backstage at the show as he always is. As noted earlier, Vince McMahon is now dealing with the CM Punk issues.

If CM Punk wants to walk out more power to him. Just the same as Vince firing people IMO. If he saved his money and no longer needs to work for the big corporation then he made the right choice. Why be anywhere when you are not happy? So what if it is close to Mania? Punk is not happy and decided he did not want to be part of this anymore. He should not have to go to work for a few more months due to the time of year it is when he hates his job and is an independent contractor.

01-31-2014, 08:55 AM
surprised this hasn''t made this thread:


WrestlingINC.com reports that one of their readers attended CM Punk's Wizard World Q&A in Portland, Oregon this past weekend and said he doesn't think Sting should come to WWE because he doesn't have anything left in the tank and would again take away from the younger Superstars. Punk called Batista a friend but said he didn't feel the time was right for Batista to return because it was so unfair to take away from the other wrestlers who work hard everyday.

Punk said he's been frustrated with WWE's direction and feels the writers aren't in touch with what fans want. He's good money-wise and hasn't really spent much money so he's not worried about receiving a paycheck.

Punk said he's interested in UFC if his body can handle it but right now he doesn't think his body is in any shape for it. He said he's been really sick, especially September through November of last year. He's had weekly MRI's and blood work done but doctors can't figure out what's wrong. He started eating meat again and is starting to feel better but isn't close to 100%.

He craps all over The Rock for not working every show, but praises UT who worked less dates than Rock did last year. In his most recent interview he stated how much he loved having Batista back and it wasnt the same as Rock returning b/c Batista came back for the long haul. Yet now he is ticked that Batista won the Rumble? Also in that last interview he mentioned how he will reserve his judgment on the WWE Network till he gets his royalty check. No one blames him for wanting money. No one blames him for wanting financial security. But you were blasting Rock, b/c in your opinion he came back for the money, yet you make a statement like that?! And its no secret that Rock didnt come back for the money. Simple mathematics. WWE cant pay enough to Rock remotely what he is making on a feature film.

They had a great match which ended with your boy stealing Punk's thunder. A great match is all well and good but it didn't do anything to help Punk, he never got the win back and it's not like HHH needed to go over. Same bullshit, different day, and you're still a moron :)

This is WWE's problem constantly. Something Nash even brought up. They get certain guys that have a definitive connection with the fans, and they don't go 100 per cent in with them. They don't use the momentum to the full potential. They half protect them, half hang them out to dry. Are you're in or you're out, fans can tell when a guy isn't the upper echelon. You ever notice that the top shelf guys often times don't even get beat with run-ins?

At the end of the day, you put Punk over 100 per cent clean with HHH, it puts him in the upper echelon, HE'S main eventing instead of Cena and Laurenaitis. But they obviously didn't have the faith in him to do that, so they jobbed him in the most cop out manner of booking possible.

I actually thought the way Ryback lost at Hell in a Cell was fucking perfect. If they had Punk just cheat at then get the 3 count it would have still be awful because you would have taken away Ryback's aura of invincibility that got the crowd behind him in the first place. Instead they didn't even have him get pinned for a legit 3 count while also getting the over-done undefeated streak distraction out of the way. It was perfect.

The way they booked him AFTER that match was WWE retarded, clueless booking at it's absolute worst.

Shadrick
02-01-2014, 06:26 AM
If true, I don't think Punk magically decided Monday would be it. He's been more than vocal in the past about part time guys/retreads coming in and taking main event spots. We know having to see Rock main event 2 years in a row didn't make him happy, but it can be argued easily that Rock was a huge deal and was "best for business" as a draw. Batista is not, and never was. He was always second fiddle to Cena, and now he comes back, with one match, and gets auto penciled into the main event. I can completely understand how that would be the tipping point for Punk.

I also would understand that the idea of working with HHH is an underwhelming one. Outside of Mr. Steele, did anyone really enjoy his matches with Lesnar. The first two bored me to the point that I didn't bother with the third. His matches with Taker weren't anything special either, and are book ended by two classics with HBK and CM Punk. Not to mention, the last time I remember Punk and H having a match, during the summer of Punk, H won with a pedigree, 1-2-3, after a clusterfuck of run ins. Then ends the show crotch chopping the hottest name in the company to end the show.

So yeah, Punk having little to no interest in a match with H is not surprising at all. I get that walking out is unprofessional, and H having his ego stepped on a bit is only natural, but he, Vince and WWE need Punk a lot more than Punk needs them. Replacing his merch sales, the live crowds that cheer him, and his ability to put on matches with just about anyone is not going to be easy, and there's no one currently on the roster in position to take his spot.

Pretty much. In the short term I can see it making sense because it's a clash of "legends" of sorts, but it's not like HHH or Brock needed 3 matches, maybe the one at summerslam where Brock went over, but three was overkill considering how limited Brock's appearances are. But his match with Punk naturally eclipses ANYTHING he did with HHH, as would his matches with any of the top of the new breed food chain. But HHH IS THIS BUSINESS and thus him having a series of matches with a hot commodity like Brock eclipses the importance of the future of the company's t.v. product and making new stars :) Right James?

I would argue that this was more the WWE's fault rather than Triple H's. This was TERRIBLE booking on the WWE's part.

The main-event of Wrestlemania that year should have been Triple H vs. Austin.....with Triple H going over. Either that, or you could have just had Rock/Hogan as your main-event, and make it a title match.

The WWE completely fucked over Jericho during his World title run. Even though he defeated Austin and Rocky on the same night, it was made to look like a complete fluke. All throughout Jericho's run, Jericho was made to look wildly inferior to his opponents while continuously getting "fluke" victories.

Jericho's lack of established credibility as a World Champ, thanks to woefully bad booking of his character, helped lead to a lackluster main-event. The WWE also changed Triple H's character way too much (as they have a tendency to do when they attempt to turn a successful heel into a successful face) and so Triple H's pops had been on decline since his January return.

Jericho never had his "Triple H over Foley" moment.

If I had to do it all over again, I would have kept Austin as a heel champ until Mania.

Completely agree on this one.

Ironically enough, as much as people label Orton as "Triple H's boy", Triple H pretty much destroyed Orton's momentum BIG TIME on two separate occasions.

The first one was shortly after Summerslam in 2004. Although Orton was getting huge face pops, the WWE made the mistake of 'busting their nut' and turning him face way too soon.

If the WWE had Orton become the new heel leader of Evolution, with Hunter turning face, then Orton would've been way better off for it in the long run.

In fact - if HHH and Orton had completely switched spots/roles during that time (i.e. heel Orton having a run as champ, and then jobbing to Batista at Mania' in 2005), then Orton would have been a much bigger star than he ended up being.


The SECOND time Orton got fucked over by HHH, was when he lost clean to HHH at Wrestlemania that one year (2009?). Orton should have gone over as he was at the absolute peak of his heel-dom with Legacy.

Orton should have been booked to kick Stephanie in the head that one-time as well.

Problem with that is no one wanted to boo Austin. After all the heel shit Austin pulled, the Raw after Survivor Series, he came out to confront McMahon and Angle, and the place popped huge for him. He didn't even have to do anything and he was already a huge face again, because no one bought him as a heel in the first place.

They could have done a double-turn at Mania then.

Besides - it's not like fans haven't cheered 'cool heels' before (i.e. Rocky during the Corporation days).

Austin was still popular during his heel days, but fans gave appropriate reactions. Angle got a huge pop when he made Austin tap at No Mercy 2001. The Rock, Jericho, Benoit, Undertaker, RVD, and Tazz, all good tremendous pops whenever they had their matches and/or confrontations with Austin.

I disagree with the statement that 'no one bought Austin as a heel in the first place.' Austin wasn't hated, but fans were giving massive support towards all/most opponents that Austin faced that year.

Remember when Scott Steiner came to the WWE and was hot as shit, and then HHH buried him. Steiner hadn't wrestled in a while so HHH wanted to make him look bad by having a ridiculously long match and wouldn't take some of Steiners moves.

Remember when HHH fought Orton at Wrestlemania and Orton got in no offence? That was fun.

Remember how HHH had a 15 minute promo on Raw that went about 13 minutes too long? Oh wait, that's every week.

Remember that epic Booker T and HHH feud? Where were you that day when that match was signed? Timeless. I may have been in heaven.

Remember when HHH unmasked Kane and it was an amazing moment, and then went on to bury him in every match, as well as fuck Kane's gf's corpse.

Remember when HHH and HBK had one massive sword fight reunion and fought 2 on 5 handicap matches against 5 young talent in the Spirit Squad that resulted in 2 of them leaving wrestling all together after DX won every match and then shit on them by throwing them in a box with OVW stamped on it.

Remember when HHH beat Sheamus in two straight matches, lost the third because Sheamus beat him up before the match, left for 10 months and came back only to pedigree Sheamus through an announce table and that was it because he just had to face the Undertaker. That was a great way to blow off a feud.

2.Then on Monday have Bryan make him tap in a match for the Title.

3.Have him come back at Summerslam for a street-fight with Sheamus and put him over cleanly.

4.Lose to Ziggler at Rumble in a 2/3 match.

5.Have him commentate Wrestlemania. Starting a feud with The Miz which leads to a match on Monday where The Miz beats him dirty, but strong.

but all the scenarios being tossed around in all of them they are searching for a spot for HHH to be on the card... is this needed? if HHH isn't in a match where somebody is taking on the authority angle does he have a place on the card from a storyline POV?

and seeing as how there is nobody for him to give the rub to why are they endlessly searching for a spot for him? does HHH on the card still drive up buyrates?
