CM Punk hasn't had any great pipe bombs on Raw recently, and that's really too bad, because it was his great promo work which had everyone falling in love with him last summer.
On Monday, we witnessed the Punk's best pipe bomb in months. He absolutely killed it on the mic.
Punk shot down Lauranitis, ripping into him with pure anger and fury. The promo was flawlessly done, and the crowd was absolutely loving it.
But then, the unexpected happened. John Lauranitis cut a really good promo where we saw a side of him that we hadn't seen before.
Johnny Ace lashed out in pure frustration of being bullied and pushed around on his show. Then he did the most heel action he could by slamming the microphone on Mick Foley's forehead.
Lauranitis and Punk finished the show perfectly, plain and simple. Who knows where this will lead, whether Lauranitis does screw Punk at the Rumble or Punk manages to piss off the interim GM even more, but this feud is really heating up, and it has the potential to be something special.
