Heel or face? Truthful or whiny?
To be honest I have very mixed feelings on tonight’s version of CM Punk.
I enjoyed his brutal honesty tonight because that is what made a lot of us fall in love with him. Punk felt real at times where he crossed the line of scripted to original. His banter with Jerry Lawler produced a lot of moments where I found myself agreeing with everything Punk said.
The problem is there were also times where Punk came across as a big baby.
Anyone who follows me on this site knows that I believe that the WWE champion should always be the focus of Raw. So while I agree with CM Punk, I did not need him to whine about it every five seconds. It was especially annoying when he kept demanding everyone’s respect.
You do not gain respect, especially from the fans, by whining about it.
I think the CM Punk we got tonight leaves a lot to interpretation. There are going to be people who agreed with everything he said and did tonight. There will also be people who accuse Punk of being an unoriginal, cookie-cutter sellout.
I am somewhere in the middle.
I love CM Punk, but I am not going to sit here and defend him when he came across like a spoiled brat at times.
What did you think of CM Punk’s actions tonight?
