According to Justin LaBar of WrestleZone and Bleacher Report,
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter is reporting WWE creative is working on a major angle for the summer.
Reportedly they are working on coming up with a "knock your socks off" storyline similar to how the Nexus angle captured attention in 2010 and CM Punk did in 2011. There is a lot of pressure to come up with something because of the low ratings and current product.
What "major angle" could WWE possibly come up that could garner as much attention as Nexus did in 2010 or CM Punk did last summer?
Your guess is as good as mine, but perhaps the major angle WWE creative is working on deals with CM Punk, Paul Heyman and Brock Lesnar.
A few weeks ago, Paul Heyman tweeted the following:
@HeymanHustle: It's going to be one wild F'n year!
CM Punk responded by tweeting,
@CMPunk: “@HeymanHustle: It's going to be one wild F'n year!” They have NO idea.
B/R's own C.I.M. wrote an article wondering what the two men's plans are.
Who could blame them for predicting such a thing? Punk and Brock are "Paul Heyman guys," and all three men have (or at least have had) issues with the WWE brass and landscape.
Will CM Punk join forces with Paul Heyman and Brock Lesnar?
Considering both the Nexus and CM Punk summer angles dealt with changing the WWE landscape, perhaps fans shouldn't be surprised if WWE's upcoming angle deals with something similar.
If the angle does in fact involve CM Punk joining forces with Paul Heyman and Brock Lesnar, here's how I see it playing out:
It's Money In The Bank 2012. CM Punk has just finished defending his WWE Title in a brilliant ladder match against Daniel Bryan. Up next in the main event is John Cena vs. a pillow. Yes, a pillow.
During Cena's match with the pillow, Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman come into the ring from the crowd and proceed to beat the living daylights out of Cena.
On commentary, we have Booker T, Jerry "The King" Lawler and Michael Cole.
Booker: "What da Hell?!"
King: "Will somebody please help Cena?!"
Cole: "What is going on?! What are they doing?!"
Out comes CM Punk. The crowd goes nuts. The announce team is relieved. "Help is on the way!"
Punk enters the ring and...joins Brock and Heyman in their beat-down of Cena. F5! GTS! Chair-shot to the back! The crowd and announcers are stunned.
Booker: "Oh mah goodness! Tell me that didn't just happen!"
King: "No way!"
Cole: "Ladies and gentlemen, I can't explain what has just happened. Has CM Punk really joined forces with these two despicable men? What do these three men have in store for the WWE Universe?!"
Will this summer's angle be a hit or miss?
The next night on Raw, CM Punk comes out to the ring with Lesnar and Heyman. Punk explains that he did what he did because he was sick and tired of seeing John Cena in main event after main event. Punk explains that the man with the WWE Title (Punk) should be main eventing, not Cena.
Punk also states that as soon as he realized that WWE would never put him in the main event, he decided to take things into his own hands. Punk states that it's time to really make WWE "fun again."
The newly formed faction recruits under-appreciated/disgruntled wrestlers and dominates the WWE until John Cena, Triple H, The Rock, The Undertaker and Stone Cold Steve Austin step in and face the faction at Survivor Series.
The faction disbands, but new feuds are formed, such as The Undertaker vs. Brock Lesnar and CM Punk vs. Steve Austin. The end.
What do you think? What does WWE creative have in store for the WWE Universe?
