The New York Yankees was the reason John Cena finally slugged CM Punk. Wow that was compelling TV!(?)
Watching the final segment of RAW tonight was a roller-coaster of highs and lows and it appeared that no one really was sure what track this was all taking as far as I can tell. It was all too long and all too confusing.
A few weeks ago the entire world was buzzing about CM Punk’s excellent tirade against the WWE system and the people who run it. Tonight I felt it was sent on a wrong turn going into the “Money In The Bank” pay-per-view this Sunday night. It was — again — too long and too predictable.
I really wanted to be psyched about Cena vs. Punk at MITB but now that fever just isn’t as high for me after tonight.
While I’m complaining a bit, I might as well add that Mr. McMahon’s character just isn’t cutting it — and it’s not just his fault. He’s made to look like a “pansy” at times and that doesn’t work when you think about what a monster boss/heel is has been in the past.
Come on Vince, tell the writers to bring the “grapefruits” back when it comes to you’re TV appearances!
On a parting note about the Sunday PPV, I will be at the King Of Prussia (Pennsylvania) Fox and Hound Restaurant on Sunday night covering the event, watching on the ginat screens there. Come on and join me, some great fans, the Voice Of Choice Nation Radio team, and some surprise guests. Oh by the way, there is no charge to watch the PPV but they Fox and Hound has some magnficent food (the burgers are exceptional) and drinks.
Thanks and I’ll see YOU at the matches!
