The CM Punk Promo

While wearing a "Stone Cold" Steve Austin t-shirt, CM Punk at the end of last night's Monday Night Raw cut one of the best promos I have ever seen! Punk's rant targeted many people including Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Hulk Hogan and the McMahon family and said after he wins the W.W.E. Championship at the Money in the Bank pay-per-view on July 17 he will defend it in either the New Japan Pro Wrestling or Ring of Honor wrestling promotion. Classic stuff.

Shortly after the show went of the air WWE.com announced that Punk has been "suspended" indefinitely. I read a couple of comments from some on Facebook that believed this was an outright "shoot," which is another way of saying it wasn't scripted. C'mon folks, nothing gets on W.W.E. t.v. without Vince McMahon's approval. Punk's last day is supposedly July 17 and if he leaves it will be a big loss. But I would imagine that he probably will return sooner rather than later.
