Right now, CM Punk is the hottest superstar in the WWE. So naturally, the company is going to bury him right as he's reaching his apex.
As the WWE Champion feuds with John Cena over the right to call himself the undisputed face of the Raw brand, Triple H, the company's new COO, has become embroiled in the saga, squaring off against Punk in a war of words.
Every wrestling fan knows Triple H: He doesn't have to do much to get a reaction out of a crowd, thanks to his impressive resume as an in-ring performer. But the powers that be have decided otherwise.
Despite his status within the company and the minds of fans everywhere, the creative team has decided to make it their mission to get The Game over with fans. Seeing as this move makes no sense whatsoever, it lines up perfectly with creative's line of thinking.
The last thing Triple H needs is a push. Fans know, respect and love him, regardless of his new role. Anything he says will be taken as gospel, seeing as anyone with half of a brain knows of his backstage presence.
The former WWE Champion has been groomed for a real life succession of Vince McMahon, and fans expect to see him take over in the coming years. Needless to say, a push isn't necessary.
Right now, Punk is the WWE's top commodity, and should be protected and pushed as such, instead of being the latest victim of a burial at the hands of Triple H's character. Planting the Chicago-made superstar in the middle of the ring with a Pedigree weakens his momentum and kills everything the creative team has built.
This type of thinking is the reason that fans have been crying for change, only to be teased with the promise of a new era. If Triple H buries Punk like he has done to so many superstars, it will be a cold, sobering slap to the face of fans everywhere who came back to the company in droves because of the bold, new direction of the WWE.
You can see that the creative team wants to establish Triple H as the unquestioned leader of the company, but fans have already bought into that. Having him feud with Punk is one thing, but making it the sole mission of the creative team to build up his COO character is a total joke.
Triple H needs a push like Cena needs another title run, and it's embarrassing that the creative team has even let this possibility cross their minds. The reaction to this news will be met with disgust, and rightfully so.
If the WWE doesn't catch a whiff of the foul stench coming off of this terrible idea, then the company deserves to lose all of the fans it brought back over the past month.
Triple H is an important figure in the future of the Raw brand, but CM Punk is the icon, and the creative team needs to protect him and his character at all cost.
