CM Punk and His 5 Best Feuds in the WWE
Right now, we are seeing the beginnings of a new great feud from CM Punk with the COO Triple H or Stephanie McMahon or Kevin Nash.
The options are unlimited with his current feud, but it makes me remember his past and the great feuds he has had already in the WWE.
Here, in my opinion, are his Top Five.
These are the feuds that were good, but simply not good enough for this list:
JBL in 2008
Undertaker in 2009
Chavo Guerrero in 2007/08
5. John Morrison
This really good feud began at the WWE pay-per-view Vengeance: Night of Champions.
CM Punk had been set to face Benoit for the ECW Championship, but due to his “absence,” John Morrison replaced him and won the title.
Punk began a heated chase for the title, challenging Morrison often for it, ending at a last-chance 15 minutes of fame match, which Punk won on ECW TV for the ECW title.
4. Randy Orton
This feud began with Punk gaining retribution for an incident—long forgotten by many—in which an Orton-led Legacy jumped Punk before a title defense in an Championship Scramble Match.
It was very unique, as the WWE actually acknowledged the past.
It was a nice feud that culminated with Orton eliminating New Nexus and a very good—through predictable—match at WrestleMania 27, which led to a great RKO spot for the Orton win.
3. Rey Mysterio
A great feud for Punk and his Straight Edge Society.
From Punk trying to get Mysterio to join and to lose his mask, but getting his come-uppance by losing his hair, the most memorable (and creepy) part was CM Punk singing “Happy Birthday” to Rey’s daughter on SmackDown, as seen in the video.
It was one of the best feuds of 2010, maybe even the best.
2. John Cena
This may surprise you, but I think it is only his second-best feud.
It was very intriguing—hell, exciting—with two great matches at back-to-back PPVs with great mic work from CM Punk and good work from Cena.
It was a great feud that would normally be a No. 1 feud in a wrestler’s career, but it wasn't for him.
1. Jeff Hardy
My top feud for CM Punk, this was a great contrast in the lifestyles of Hardy and Punk and was deeply personal on many levels.
Beginning with Punk cashing in his second Money in the Bank briefcase, this took great advantage of CM Punk's ability as a heel for the first time in his WWE stint.
I still remember their match at SummerSlam, and even more so Jeff’s last match in the WWE on SmackDown.
This match helped make CM Punk.
So this is it on the list of CM Punk's best feuds in the WWE.
