This has to be the 1,000th article pertaining to CM Punk in the last 60 days. I wouldn't blame you if you immediately noticed the title and scurried away to read about John Cena or Triple H.
All that said, the CM Punk drama took an interesting turn for the worst, according to diehard CM Punk fans.
Kevin Nash made his return to Monday Night Raw, after his controversial actions at SummerSlam. He addressed the WWE universe that somebody texted him the night of SummerSlam, and told him to stick the winner, no matter what.
He then went on to claim it was only business. When Triple H came out at the beginning of the show and told the audience he had no clue who texted him, Nash called him a liar. When a friend asks Nash for something, he does it, so says Diesel.
Before I move on, did anybody notice Nash's dyed hair and beard?
This brought out CM Punk, who is severely furious with many people. Long story short, he called out Kevin Nash for lying and sticking up for his best friend. Being the loud-mouth Punk is, a lot more was said, even a shout out to his sister, Shalene.
Just to get this out of the way, Nash told Punk to hit the weights. Isn't that the thing WWE should stay away from?
Regardless of the situation, CM Punk is feuding with the one man the IWC didn't predict, Kevin Nash. Along with Triple H, they seem to have Punk cornered and without the WWE title.
I compiled a list of six predictions for CM Punk and his current feud. Let's hope I didn't miss any outcomes, I'll feel like Sin Cara after his first match on SmackDown.
This is a night where every championship is on the line, well except for maybe this one. This prediction is probably the most unlikely from my list.
This is if what we saw from John Cena and Alberto Del Rio is a sign of things to come.
Reverting back to the introduction slide, Triple H claims he doesn't have a clue who contacted Nash from his cell phone. Then again, they are very good friends and Hunter is Nash's son's godfather. There is an obvious connection to them both.
It is unknown if Triple H or Nash will ever wrestle in the near future. Rumors spread about a Triple H vs. CM Punk match at Survivor Series, but this is Night of Champions people. Unless Hunter is back to his burying ways and wants a title, this match will be strictly "business".
Here is how I see it playing out: Punk had his meeting with Triple H on Monday night. Assuming that it did not go as planned, Triple H chooses to side with Nash regardless of the text to get rid of Punk. He then fights back and demands a match at NOC.
Either of them accepts, and the match is official.
Again, this prediction is the most unlikely because we are not sure who is in wrestling condition at this moment.
This match would definitely be what's right for "business".
This outcome is probably the most likely out of the six.
On Raw this past week, Rey Mysterio was defeated via pinfall by Alberto Del Rio to retain his undisputed WWE championship. After a back-and-forth match, Del Rio continued to put Rey through torture, as he locked him in the cross-armbreaker.
Out came the superman himself, to save the day. John Cena had a few words for Alberto, who he considered cheap and lazy.
This almost guarantees a match at Night of Champions, if we run things through with the old WWE creative. CM Punk also has a rematch clause. He did confirm that he is not mad at Del Rio for what he did because Punk has been there done that two times before.
To resolve everything quite easily and quickly, a triple-threat match for the WWE championship is the most logical choice of them all.
The thing is, WWE doesn't always do what seem logical anymore. With Punk feuding with Kevin Nash and Triple H's family at the moment, his title opportunity might have to wait.
This prediction would make me the most frustrated, but also open up more ways for this angle to evolve.
The video shown above shows CM Punk kicking Johnny Ace in the skull. At Money in the Bank, Lauranaitis decided to run a Montreal Screwjob and call the match early. Cena broke the hold of Punk and punched his lights out.
Johnny Ace has two men he could be mad at. One is Punk for talking poorly about him, and Cena for mocking him during their contract signing for SummerSlam.
To add more fuel to the fire of controversy, Johnny Ace and Kevin Nash met backstage on Raw, while Kevin was looking for Triple H. He dismissed the idea of meeting with Hunter, and told Nash they needed to talk in private about some "things".
What are these things? Could it be a plot to screw CM Punk? Regardless if it was Lauranaitis who texted Nash at SummerSlam, there is something fishy going on about the Executive Vice President of Talent Relations.
So, if a match between Punk and Del Rio occurs, expect Funkman to be in the middle of it.
Ring of Honor fans are wetting their pajamas at the sight of the title.
Yes gentlemen, a Ring of Honor invasion is a definite possibility. It will fit a lot more once you read the last slide. Let's run through the list of ROH stars that are going to, or might make the jump to the hallowed grounds of WWE.
Colt Cabana - This guy became famous with the WWE crowd when CM Punk wore his t-shirt during commentary on Raw one night. Adding to that situation, Punk dropped Cabana's name during his famous shoot promo.
Since that time, questions have been circling if Scotty Goldman (Cabana's first run with WWE) would actually return to the company.
By making the jump even more likely, he worked a dark match on SmackDown a few weeks ago. He faced Wade Barrett in a singles match and was pinned. Being that he is Punk's true best friend, future partners would work just fine.
Kings of Wrestling (Chris Hero and Claudio Castagnoli) - These two define a real tag-team, which the WWE clearly lacks. David Otunga and Michael McGillicutty are the tag-team champions. That's enough reasoning to believe the area is very weak.
This past Monday on Raw, Kofi Kingston and Evan Bourne seem to be hunting for tag-team gold. The Kings of Wrestling have much better chemistry.
ROH fans will tell you, they have pure wrestling talent. They could fit in very well with CM Punk and Cabana.
This invasion might not be as memorable as the WCW invasion storyline, but it will certainly shake things up around here.
Don't you just love the family connection?
Sure these two have had their ups and downs, but doesn't it seem ironic that somebody from Triple H's phone texted Kevin Nash and called him "big guy"? This mystery texter sure sounds a lot like Hunter.
Whether it is Vince McMahon, Stephanie McMahon or Funkman John Lauranaitis, I believe Vince will be back. The angle is set up to believe Triple H got Vince fired, and he is back for vengeance. If he ever makes is return to TV, I'm sure he will be against the man who started the whole fiasco; CM Punk.
Logic says CM Punk is the anchor of this change, and if he would have never had beaten Cena at Money in the Bank, everything would have been different.
Vince, again regarding his TV return, will want a piece of Punk. This will lead to a Vince/Triple H/Nash and Funkman feud against CM Punk.
That previous sentence leads me to my last prediction...
This is definitely my favorite scenario because it will get the most reaction.
For those who did not know, Stone Cold Steve Austin feuded with the Corporation. This stable included Vince McMahon, Shane McMahon, Undertaker during his Corporate Ministry, the Stooges, Big Bossman, the Rock and Ken Shamrock.
From 1998-99, this stable ran through WWF, winning many championships and legitimately running the show. There was this man who was considered, the first anti-hero; Stone Cold Steve Austin.
He did everything to ruin the lives of the Corporation, and was the perfect claim for insubordination. Beer baths to beating up Vince McMahon in the hospital, Austin made his mark.
As for the current day Corporation, here is what my stable looks like: Vince McMahon (if there is a return to TV), Triple H, Stephanie McMahon, Kevin Nash, John Lauranaitis and Alberto Del Rio.
This is where I tie my last slide into it. Weeks after weeks of torture to CM Punk, let's say he decides to sweeten up the pot a little bit. He then brings in Colt Cabana. Once he realizes that is not enough, then the Kings of Wrestling debut.
As for John Cena, I'll leave that up to you guys if he could be a part of this group.
Currently, CM Punk is in the perfect situation to make this prediction happen. The facts align that both ROH guys I mentioned will debut sooner rather than later in WWE. News broke out a few weeks ago that said the WWE will debut the Kings of Wrestling as a tag-team.
The "Reality era" could keep a consistent basis, if they are mentioned as a ROH duo. The invasion storyline would be a perfect option. My only problem is if the WWE actually considers this, then they need to make it different.
I'm sure not many fans, if any, would like to witness the Corporation angle any similar to the original angle.
CM Punk is not the next Stone Cold, he is the next CM Punk. If that does any justice, it would be different, and something to remember.
I'm not going to end my slideshow with a diva. Just like the status quo, this will be the conclusion. I hope all of you enjoyed my piece and the debate can now begin below. I appreciate all of the reads and comments very much.
That's right. I'm a Paul Heyman guy.
