CM Punk and the IWC: Enough Is Enough

Tyson JonesSenior Analyst IIIJuly 27, 2011

That's my general thought about the response in recent months regarding CM Punk and the IWC. It seems like 98.5 percent of the articles in Bleacher Report's WWE section are about CM Punk.

Another one percent goes to HHH and John Cena, with the remaining 0.5 percent going to anything else. Now, am I the only one that finds this trend just a bit annoying? Sort of like one of those instances where you get too much of a good thing. Yes, I'm saying there's too much CM Punk.

Granted, I'll say, I may, or may not be helping the situation. This is something of a CM Punk article, though I'm happy to claim it's not the usual one you'll see here. The funny part about it, though, is the usual CM Punk article.

The usual CM Punk article is about one of two things: either that CM Punk's story with Cena has been ruined by WWE with his early appearance last week (I disagree, but whatever), or (and this is actually kind of funny) about CM Punk's new theme. Yeah, seems that guys like the United States Champion, Mr. Money in the Bank, and the World Heavyweight Champion take a backseat to the debate over which of CM Punk's theme songs is the best.

It's a shame too. Just when WWE is getting better in-ring action and is delivering on a consistent basis, nobody can pry their thoughts away from what's going to happen next with CM Punk. It's enough to make you think R-Truth is right about a conspiracy, but he's got the wrong man in Triple H.

Personally, I think Punk is good. I haven't really been a fan since he left Smackdown, but he's good, but really, I'm tired of CM Punk. I'd like to read something not about the WWE Champion—and it's pretty good, the occasional article I find that doesn't have to do with CM Punk.

I even recently saw a little piece stating that CM Punk's new t-shirt was for sale, and I thought, "Really? Really—we have to write an article on this?" It's almost as if CM Punk has the entire IWC wrapped around his finger (who am I kidding? He practically does at this point).

Thankfully though, I'll admit that I've seen some good articles on guys like John Morrison, Alberto Del Rio, and Daniel Bryan. But still, I'm surprised we've not heard anything about Cody Rhodes (I wonder who's gonna make a Rachel Miller joke), R-Truth, Rey Mysterio, etc.

Anyway, I'm not trying to bash the whole CM Punk and John Cena story or anything like that, but I'm just saying, could we change the topic to something else?
