Here on a Saturday afternoon, I sit and am thinking about tomorrow night’s WWE Money in the Bank pay per view. Since the event is close by in Chicago, naturally me and a group of my friends got tickets months ago. Initially I was excited about seeing two MITB matches, but until recently the level of intrigue went through the roof. Hometown favorite CM Punk will square off against for this night a maligned John Cena. Having been to a couple recent shows in Chicago, what they say about the crowd is true, they are passionate. I was there when The Rock and John Cena had their first in ring confrontation, the place was electric. That same night, HBK, Triple H, and The Undertaker all had words for each other, once again it was electric. But any time CM Punk entered the ring, the building erupts with “CM Punk” chants even after he berates the crowd in an attempt to get heel heat.
This era of wrestling it’s difficult to find a person or angle that generates so much interest that we have today. There is no more big competition anymore. WWE television is more exposed than before with two majors shows every week. The internet makes it difficult to come up with a shock anymore. The exposure of the internet has led to two unofficial groupings of fans, the casual fan and the internet fan. While it’s a whole different discussion of what each fan wants, it’s relevant in the direction the WWE has gone. Since the days of the beer guzzling Steve Austin and the Diva’s stripping as far as the censors will let them, the WWE has moved into a family friendly direction. Naturally WWE will market their guys that will generate the most money for them, guys like John Cena and Randy Orton. For years we seen people like John Cena triumph over evil while the internet darlings in the company aren’t treated to the standards their supporters want them to. Enter CM Punk, one of the internets biggest icons.
CM Punk is from a different cut from John Cena. Instead of the chiseled jaw and the huge muscles, he has tattoos and a lip ring. Punk came up through the independents instead of home grown from the WWE. Taking nothing away from Cena’s matches over the years, but Punk is the more polished ring worker. He’s also one who is best when shooting from the hip, but this isn’t the Attitude Era anymore and what goes on TV is way more filtered. Despite that, Punk still has been one of the premier performers in the company. In reality CM Punk’s contract is close to being expired, and being out of characteristic of the WWE, they made that into a storyline. Punk going into the PPV number one contender is threatening to win the WWE title and leave the company with it. Punk has also cut a couple of promos that is being shot from the hip, within limits of course. Just like that, people are viewing to see what he has to say next. But there is that uncertainty if there will be a next. One of the most compelling Pay Per Views not named Wrestlemania in a long time, could be a historic night. Will WWE do what they usually do and have Cena triumph over evil again or will the pull the trigger on a very compelling finish?
We know whatever happens Cena will still be employed, that’s no doubt. But there is true uncertainty behind Punk’s future and the only people that know are probably him and McMahon right now. I don’t think Vince wants to see him walk, especially after seeing what he can truly bring to the company. He certainly doesn’t want to see him in some other company’s ring, he’s perhaps the most valuable name in pro wrestling right now. The only thing for sure is that I can’t wait to see it live tomorrow night.
