Good to see CM Punk making grandstand challenges to real stars on the internet. The last sign of desperate patheticness.
I'd say Chris Brown offering CM Punk an autograph makes him the winner at a canter, and makes CM Punk look daft and like a no-one. Wrestling has the perception of being panto. Chris Brown is no doubt going to look at CM Punk's tweet and think nothing other than "LOL wrestling". Everything a wrestler says, the average bloke thinks is full of shit. How many times have you heard "they're probably all mates in real life".
Twitter is so shit. Not singling out CM Punk and Chris Brown (actually, I am really), but its so small time when you see "CELEB FIGHTZ" twitter via 140 characters. I just keep imagining them going "oh this will be a zinger ... oh shit, im over 140 letters. I'll just make "you" a "u" ..." Its makes my toes curl up when Bret Hart starts twitter wars. I reminds me of slagging people from school off on Instant messager back in the early 2000s. Stop looking for attention, fuckers.
If I was in charge I'd ban them using Twitter other than to cut promos on opponents, or to put nice things about the company.
The PPV was what it was always going to be. There's an obvious lack of star power on the show, so they just made do with what they had. Kane and Cena was actually pretty great, for a 2012 main event featuring Kane and with the ambulance match stip. That could have been far worse.
The opening Elimination Chamber was fucking crap. The angle with Jericho was just lost on me and the fans werent into it at all. Which was strange considering it was the opener. Jericho just doesnt do it for me. I actually prefer CM Punk, believe it or not. Jericho is just pure ham, and not in a good way. The way he lay there with his gob open in a Open All Hours type bit of comedy during the injury angle looked so shit. Jericho is so overrated. Mostly by himself. Which brings me to ...
Daniel Bryan might have actually proved himself as the best in ring performer in the world last night. His selling, facial expressions and ring work was just world class. The look on Bryan's face when it was just Santino and him was perfect. As the fans cheered, he had a look on his face which said words to the effect of "fucking mug". It was great. The dark horse match at Mania is Sheamus and Bryan. I think they are going to tear it up, if they get the time to do so. Daniel Bryan's matches always are the one's you go "well that'll be shit" and it turns out to be cracking. Although, I must admit, I was caught up in the moment and wanted Santino to win the belt. It was awesome. Definitely the best match of the night. People say it was boring at first, but the whole match built to that spot with the Big Show climbing into the sell. Special mention has to go to the Big Show as well. How hard did he work? He was running the ropes more than The Miz was last night. Top bloke. Wade Barrett actually looked better than he'd done in ages as well. A win all around.
As I say, there was a lot of shit on the PPV last night (Swagger match, RAW EC, Yaks match), but it was built as a stop gap PPV, so to have a match as good as that SmackDown chamber was a proper bonus. Another thing, David Otunga is the most underrated man of the decade. The hilarity this man brings without any mic time is off the charts.
Oh and Mr. Excitement should be the GM of Raw, Smackdown, Superstars, NXT, FCW, TNA, ROH, ECW, WCW, JCP, JCB, Jay Z, JC Penney, et al.
