For those of you not up on recent WWE happenings, CM Punk, the self proclaimed “best in the world”, has up and quit the WWE. Just straight walked out on operations the day after the Royal Rumble. Took his ball and went home, ala Stone Cold. No reason for it and, publicly, nobody has heard from him since. Past issues with Punk leads me to believe that he wasn’t happy with how the company was using him, and you know what, Punk? If that is the reason then you need to seriously reevaluate your situation. Between 2012 and 2013 nobody, and I mean nobody, was bigger in the WWE than CM Punk and his loud mouth manager, Paul Heyman. CM Punk owned the squared circle. Girls wanted him and guys wanted to be him. Somehow he thought that changed in the past few months. Got news for ya, it didn’t. Go ahead and replay any WWE event since Punk’s departure. “CM Punk” chants can be heard throughout the night, and to be honest it is ruining some of the best programming WWE has put on in years. Fans need to realize this is the fault of the WWE. WWE didn’t show Punk the door, neither did they want to, Punk walked out all on his own. Say what you will about Batista’s win at the Rumble, but HHH and Vince, like always, have a pulse on whats going on with the WWE Universe.
From what is rumored, Vince has been meeting with Punk. Which is gracious on his part. I would have told Punk to go fuck himself. Punk fell way off my list after this stunt.
PS- What are you going to do? Go wrestle for TNA? Only a matter of time before you shoot a funeral home promo. That’s when you know you’ve hit pro-wrestling rock bottom.
Summer is a time for fashion statements, and nothing will blow away your drunk friends at a BBQ like a nice obscure NBA jersey. Lets look at my top 3 for this summer.
1.) Hakeem Olajuwon – Toronto Raptors
As far as i’m concerned the best looking jerseys in the NBA are the Golden State Warriors, but nothing beats this Olajuwon Toronto Jersey from his 2 year stint there in the early 2000’s. Get this jersey and immediately break the ice with anyone (well, at least sports-loving dudes. Not promising any chicks) you’re with.
2.) Dominique Wilkins – Boston Celtics
3.) Karl Malone – Los Angeles Lakers
In the 03-04 season Malone joined up with Kobe, Shaq, and Gary Payton to make a NBA Finals run that would end by being decimated by the Pistons 4-1 in the series. While Malone isn’t one of my favorite players, the Mailman’s Laker threads cannot be denied.
If all else fails, do what I did. I made myself a Celtics #11 Drew Bledsoe jersey.
