This Millenial generation of wrestling fans are so starved for “Attitude Era” atmosphere that they try to emulate it’s rebelliousness at every chance they get. Every little thng is “Holy Sh!t” this or “This is awe-some” that, when it is never ever really warranted. Their latest incarnation of F the establishment is as a tribute to their former poster boy for that movement. They have also made me hate that guy now.
I used to love and respect CM Punk, then as his appropriately monikered name suggests, he “punked” out. He took his ball and went home at the time his employers, the industry and his beloved fans needed him the most.
At first when fans chanted his name, they were confused and legitimately wanted him back because they didn’t know what happened. Then we found out that he wasn’t coming back, and that he is ridiculously suing the WWE for using his likeness, a likeness and trademark THEY own, in their latest game. The audacity to sue them while breaching his contract at the same time is completely lost on his (ironic) sheeple. F*ck them, and their chants. They ruin the shows, discredit the performers in the ring (including his wife AJ Lee) and still claim that RAW sucks without Punk. They don’t even try to enjoy the show, their elitist enjoyment comes from cynical tweets and horrible memes.
The WWE muted chants of a FORMER employee who is CURRENTLY suing them for appearing in a game, DURING THE LAUNCH OF SAID GAME??!! OH the frickin horror! You don’t say. I guess they should have just called the game CM PUNK is Raw?? Why didn’t Sting claim to want his match to be with Punk, since that’s the only wrestler people care about?
Because you Punk-fellating a**holes Punk is and never will be, the be all and end all of wrestling. Best in the world my a**. He wasn’t even the best in his company at any given time. His wife however, has been arguably the best wrestler or personality in her division (and makes a strong case for any division) ever since she skipped into her solo career. But you Phillip Brooks fans could care less about her and just use it as a chance to spout your overused useless chants, and all she can do is shrug it off.
But damn, it must be tiresome. Remember when people used to actually CHEER FOR HER? Yeah she forgot too.
Punk quit because he was unhappy. Boo-hoo.
“He was unhappy. He had enough. He couldn’t take it anymore… A year before he walked these was daily conversations of, ‘I don’t think I’m going to be able to take this. I’m not sure how much longer I’m going to be here. I don’t know how much longer it’s going to be before I just decide to go home.’ I’m surprised it lasted that long…
Every day with him was an exercise in him finding the balance to simply continue on and find the passion he needed that he to do it. And I think what happened was he walked in the day after the Royal Rumble and he couldn’t find that passion. He couldn’t convince himself or persuade himself, ‘OK, whether I’m happy or not this is about the performance, my legacy. It’s about I take pride in what I do. And whether I’m happy or unhappy when I go out there I’m going to be the best CM Punk I can be.’ And I think somewhere during that day he couldn’t find that.”

Now I admit the announcers blatantly ignoring or acting like they don’t know what the fans are chanting is borderline asinine.
Even when they do address the chants, it’s not enough.
Some of you wrestling fans ruin the fun. NO ONE should do this. Ridiculous.. pic.twitter.com/ifozPtKhTg

Googling for this post has at least taught me one thing, there actually are some intelligent wrestling fans like myself, who are sick and tired of these voices for their championed ex-voice of the dumb and stupid CM Marks.
When you look at Punk now, especially in the context of that red carpet interview, doesn’t it just feel as though he’s laughing in your face? Well, it shouldn’t. The fact is he won. Punk left at the top of his game and he didn’t look back. CM Punk leaving WWE is akin to Michael Jordan leaving the Chicago Bulls in 1999, except Punk is being a real jerk about it.
Seriously, he moved on … well from wrestling and away from his fans, whom I assume he abhors given the history of his fan interactions when he WAS an actual wrestler with a job. He hasn’t moved on from WWE yet, he craves the spotlight that this suit is affording him, and kicking Vince one more time in the nuts probably greatly amuses him.
CM Punk really does ruin everything (at least when it comes to WWE).
Hey McMahon’s do what’s best for business and give the cry babies what they want…. a Self Destruction of CM Punk DVD.
I know I want to watch that … I may even pay $9.99 for it. Sticky notes included.
