Is it me, or did Punk cut one of the greatest promos in WWE history on Raw?
After Punk cost John Cena a tables match against R-Truth, he cut a promo in which he expressed his thoughts and feelings on the WWE.
He said that he was the best wrestler in the WWE, yet he's not the face of the WWE, he hasn't starred in any WWE movies, he doesn't make television appearances on late night shows and he's not on the front cover of any magazines.
The sole reason being that unlike people who have done all of that and been the face of the WWE (The Rock, Hulk Hogan and John Cena), he doesn't kiss Vince McMahon's ass.
He went on to criticize McMahon, saying that he'd like to think that WWE would be better off if McMahon died, but then again, it would be run by his idiotic daughter and stupid son-in-law.
He then starts talking about a personal story with McMahon, but the mic gets cut off and Raw goes off the air.
All in all, Punk was giving the finger to the boss, and the fact that he wore Stone Cold Steve Austin's shirt while doing it was absolute genius.
Yeah, I know. The first thing I said after watching this promo was holy sh*t!
Now my question for you bleachers is, do you think that shoot promo was kayfabe or real?
Personally, I feel that it was half kayfabe and half real.
It was half kayfabe because WWE clearly did it on purpose to create controversy and it most definitely worked.
It was half real because everything Punk said was true, he is by far more superior than The Rock, John Cena and Hulk Hogan when it comes to in-ring skills, but he's not considered as great as them because he isn't Vinny Mac's favorite.
Not only that but Punk mentioned many real things such as Stephanie McMahon and Triple H taking over WWE after Vince's death, other wrestling promotions such as Ring of Honor and New Japan Pro Wrestling and Paul Heyman seeing talent in Punk.
Anyways, whether it was real or not, Vince has done it again, he's created controversy and as a wise man once said, controversy creates cash.
