Why Punk Wasn’t At RAW, The Rock #1 Contender To Cena & More

CM Punk

was kept off of Monday’s RAW to sell the effects of his match against The Undertaker. Paul Heyman announced on the show that Punk will be back next week.

– After losing the WWE Championship to at WrestleMania 29, it was stated on RAW that is the #1 contender by way of his rematch clause.

– On Monday’s RAW, Kane and Daniel Bryan saved The Undertaker from almost receiving a 3-on-1 beatdown at the hands of The Shield. The babyfaces chased the heels off and got a big reaction from the rowdy New Jersey crowd. When RAW went to commercial break, the 3 men exited up the ramp together, stopped on the stage, and all did Undertaker’s signature fist raise together.

    I reckon Shield will win again. Taker could put them over big time if they beat his team even by breaking the rules… But I reckon Taker will get the last laugh or Taker returns to face one of the guys from Shield at Mania?

      remind me to make sure you never work as a writer in that town, ever. noone gives a damn what they’ve done in the indies. as far as the WWE crowd is concerned, noone from the Shield is even remotely qualified to take on Taker at Wrestlemania, or anywhere else anytime soon.

      • Peer Pressure

        Indy fan-boys just don’t get it. They’re gonna try to say, “well the crowd from RAW and Mania loved them”, avoiding the fact that both crowds were full of babyface hating,indy loving smarks.

      • Pozessed

        Lol I didn’t say anyone should break the streak did I? I am just trying to throw different ideas, chill out bro, I have my ideas and you have yours, nobody is telling anyone to like or accept my opinion on what should happen.

    • Peer Pressure

      You’d love that to be Dean Ambrose, wouldn’t you?? Dean Ambrose to go over Taker at Mania 30. LOL! Not in this lifetime.

      • Pozessed

        As I’ve said, I didn’t say anyone should beat the streak did I? It is just an example of you trying to draw out another conclusion to bitch about.

        • Peer Pressure

          I’ve been in the IWC since 2009. I know how you guys think. I’ve seen dudes make comments about Ambrose beating the streak way before he was even on the main roster.

          • Pozessed

            You guys? Dude, I don’t consider myself an “IWC” guy or anything, I am just a guy giving my own opinions and thoughts on things. I don’t think anyone should beat the streak at the moment to be honest, the only guy I think should have beat it is probably Kane but it is too late for that now and I do not see anyone coming who can beat it anytime soon.

            Well you are an IWC guy and there’s no way you can change that. You comment on here or any wrestling site you’re IWC.

    Kane could revamp himself just by being the ally or enemy of the Undertaker but he can’t be with Daniel Bryan or anyone else during and in between those interactions and Kane would need to either stay silent (not speak) or be a complete monster. IMO

    • Pozessed

      Daniel Bryan can be a serious person but I think he is stuck with the Yes/No stuff for quite awhile, but they did change Angle into the wrestling machine which was very successful. I agree Kane should become more monstrous but the more I think about it, Kane has always been the monster for most of his career, although this is sometimes very awkward it will be good for if he ever changes gimmick in the future.

    lmao look at the headline of this piece on the main page:

    “Find out why WWE Champion CM Punk wasn’t at Monday’s RAW”

    4:20 arrived early this year, WEEEED the SI

  • Forceton Banfodder

    After Punk’s long reign, this new belt design, the fact that Punk is slated for time off after Mania, and no good #1 contenders for the title. I think it’s safe to expect Cena is probably going to have a long run…

    • Peer Pressuer

      Not if Ryback can help it.

      • Forceton Banfodder

        Maybe. I was pretty disappointed that Mark Henry didn’t win the #1 Contender match last night.

        • Peer Pressure

          Dude, I cut off my stream after Henry won. LOL! Hopefully they put the strap on him at the next PPV.

    • GodsLoyalSon

      2 or 3 months tops

      • Forceton Banfodder

        I hope you’re right, but I was thinking about it, but who do they have on RAW other than Punk who can hold the strap and represent the company? A small pool, Henry, Bryan, Kane, Ryback? Lesnar would be good, but I doubt he’s around enough to be considered a choice. Maybe Orton comes back and wins it again? Whatever happens, It looks like its back to the status quo and they’re going to let Cena hold this title for a while.

  • Heretoshowtheworld

    The WWE is gonna screw Ryback up!!!! Cena will not lose the title til Summerslam or later! Ryback is going to lose the Title bc of Henry and Henry vs Ryback will go on as a feud for months! I see CM PUNK or HEEL RANDY ORTON winning Money in the Bank and going after Cena at Summerslam! BTW WRESTLEMANIA 30 Main Event- THE STREAK vs THE TITLE!!!! The Undertaker vs John Cena! That would be BADASS!

  • Dave Smith
