CM Punk Won’t Wrestle Again

CM Punk Won’t Wrestle Again

By Eric Darsie

Week after week it seems like the discussion of “Will CM Punk come back to the WWE?” isn’t as much as the prior week. Between the Royal Rumble and WrestleMania, everyone online seemed to fantasy book how CM Punk would return at WrestleMania and shake things up (since he last appeared in the Rumble match). When WrestleMania XXX came-and-gone and Punk didn’t do a run-in during the show, I feel like the discussion pretty much crashed and burned about Punk coming back to professional wrestling.

CM Punk 001There’s been an article written from one of CM Punks closest friends about him, stating that “…he’s the recently retired seven-time World Champion…,” indicating to me that he has no interest on coming back with his current state of mind (the whole article can be found here). The author of that article, Natalie Slater, even appeared in the CM Punk DVD “Best in the World” that the WWE put out a few years back.

We all know that CM Punk can be moody and with how it sounds like where he’s at mentally, he won’t be back, if at all. Chris Jericho mentioned in a interview, saying that “It took a long time for me to be able to come back, and I was probably the same age as Punk is now too, so maybe he’s going through the same thing and after a few years he’ll come back.” Jericho said that it took him a couple of years to even put any professional wrestling on his television, and after he was in the spot mentally to watch again, he slowly started to gain the passion to come back, and if Punk is in the same spot as he was, Jericho could see Punk coming back after a few years out of the industry (the interview can be read here if you’re interested).

I can relate to all the CM Punk fans, I am a huge Jericholic and was down for a few weeks after Jericho was written off after SummerSlam 2005. The difference between the two is Jericho finished off his contract and Punk walked off. Still, I fully understand where you guys are coming from. Before he left, I was getting more-and-more behind Punk, but he wasn’t anywhere close to being my favorite like Y2J was when he left in 2005.

So, my opinion about Punk coming back? I don’t think he’ll ever come back. He distanced himself from the business in the last four months, enough that he finally started to tweet again about a week ago (his last tween was on January 27th and his first tweet back was on May 18th). Yes, he’s active again on Twitter but everything he tweeted about was in regards to hockey. No explanation about why he’s gone or any news on his wrestling career.

Only Punk, Triple H, and Vince McMahon know what’s going on with CM Punk and his wrestling career (at least in the WWE). Since he made most fame in the WWE and made a great living up there, I can’t see Punk going to any other promotion to preform again. If McMahon tried to offer Punk everything that he request, what other promoter would be able to grant every wish Punk desires?If CM Punk’s anything like Chris Jericho, he wouldn’t want to go to any other wrestling promotion than

CM PunkWWE because of loyalty. Jericho said in numerous interviews and in his books that he dreams were to compete for Vince McMahon and since he made most fame over there and still in good graces with McMahon, he will never compete for another company. I know Punk and Jericho are there own individuals. The impression I get from Jericho, who knows Punk personally, the vibes I get are the same for Punk that Jericho has.

If you dreamed about becoming a professional wrestler and you accomplished your dreams in the biggest company, headlined their biggest event of the year and held their company title on multiple occasions, why would you go to a smaller promotion? The smaller company wouldn’t be able to secure you the same finances like the giant company could, and did. The smaller promotion isn’t as popular as the giant company, unless you want to try to build up that smaller promotion. I’m sorry but I can’t see CM Punk going back to TNA, since they seem to be a sinking hole. Could Punk go back to ROH? I see there’s a better chance of that happening than him going to TNA.

I guess to put it in a condense statement: I believe CM Punk is officially done with professional wrestling. He’s done everything he wanted to do in the industry, he saved up money that he doesn’t need to compete in the squared circle anymore, and he’s happy to be out of the industry that’s hard to get out of. Let’s watch and discuss some of his best matches and support him with whatever he decides to do. If he decides to come back, let’s welcome him with open arms. Like said, I can’t see him coming back. Thank you CM Punk for everything you’ve done and all the punishment you put your body through to entertain me.

Could John Cena Turn Heel?

Could John Cena Turn Heel?

By Eric Darsie

One of the most popular topics to debate on wrestling podcasts, websites, and message boards is the idea of John Cena turning heel. On one of the podcasts I listen to, the Still Real to Us Show (can be found here), had several different episodes discussing if Cena could do what the smarks want him to do, and that’s “turn on his fans.” One episode I remember them talking about it was their WrestleMania XXIX episode (can be found here) when Cena challenged the Rock for the WWE Championship.

Once again, that topic was brought up on the Bryan and Vinny show twice this past week over at WrestlingObserver.com, where on the Monday, April 28th, 2014 show (can be found here) and on the Wednesday, April 20th, 2014 show (can be found here). Granted on both shows, Bryan Alveraz didn’t want to discuss Cena turning heel again, but it was being brought up again on their message board. Why him bringing it up caught my attention was one of the reasons why he believes Cena turning heel wouldn’t work, and that’s all the charity work John Cena does.

On Monday, April 28th’s WWE Monday Night Raw, a video package played airing Cena granting three wishes with Make-A-Wish that he recently granted.   With his feud against Bray Wyatt, WWE Creative is starting to tie in fans “starting to turn on” John Cena, and are being brain washed by the Wyatt Family. Bryan mentioned on one of the Bryan and Vinny shows that the spilt reaction started as far back as SummerSlam 2005 when Cena defended the WWE title against Chris Jericho. In a sense its foolish to mention that the fans are starting to turn on Cena because of the Wyatt Family since Cena mentioned it many of times before on numerous promos, as well as the announcers mentioned it during programs, and previous opponents mentioned the spilt reactions.

Does the charity work make John Cena a babyface? In the eyes of children and parents, yes. Along with what the character stands for, John Cena is a babyface, hands down. In the eyes of the female’s fans, Cena is a face for his good looks and keeping up with being in great shape. The male demographic and the internet community is tired of seeing Cena as the top babyface and demands a change in character. Like what Bryan Alvarez said during one of the Bryan and Vinny shows this past week, nothing will change if Cena’s character does.

We already saw John Cena face everybody in main events. Randy Orton, Triple H, Batista, Chris Jericho, Shawn Michaels, Bray Wyatt, Daniel Bryan, they all faced John Cena as heels (or as a face). If Cena happens to turn, we’d had to see him face those guys (or other guys I haven’t mentioned) all over again, only the tides had changed. Some of those feuds I don’t want to see again. Batista isn’t accepted as a babyface, Shawn Michaels won’t wrestle again, and his feud against Randy Orton was overdone when they had it before hand.

Besides having to rehatch a lot of feuds that’s been done before, the merchandise sales would go down because the kids and the women would feel that Cena has turned on them (and he would’ve, if he became a heel). John Cena is the top selling superstar in merchandise sales (can be found here), so if he turns, it could hurt the WWE financially. As a member of the internet community, that doesn’t matter to me but I do understand that WWE wants to make the best moves for the company financially.

If the WWE is concerned about their merchandising sales if they turn Cena, then should build up a new babyface superstar to take his place, if WWE Creative and Vince McMahon decides to make that decision. Daniel Bryan could be the face of the company if they keep building him up like they have in the last few years, but he isn’t in that place right now. Maybe in a few years Bryan could be the man to carry the torch for Cena, maybe. That decision is in the hands of the WWE and in my opinion; I can’t see them making that power play.

So, could John Cena turn heel? He could, Hulk Hogan did it in 1996 when he joined up with Kevin Nash and Scott Hall and turned on all the Hulkamanics and WCW. I feel like it would have to be the right storyline, like it was for Hogan in 1996. The ratings didn’t jump right away for WCW Monday Nitro when “Hollywood” Hulk Hogan and the New World Order formed, but with the heat they gained while steamrolling over all the babyfaces, fans tuned in and wanted to see what was next for the New World Order. If the angle and storyline was right, John Cena could turn heel. Like mentioned earlier, WWE needs to build up the next top babyface and marketing tool if Vince McMahon and the Creative Team wants to turn John Cena. But as of now, I don’t expect John Cena to be other than the babyface he’s been for almost about a decade now. We can fantasy book it and all, but all it’ll be is fantasy. Let’s enjoy the product that the WWE is putting on and let’s see what’s next, for the next line of main eventers and next line of feuds and storylines.
