CM Punk Drafted to WWE Smackdown

Well, CM Punk has been drafted to Smackdown. While this is unfortunate as I cannot view Smackdown live, I'll have to settle for viewing it on tape delay anyway. I will use this space and time in order to lay out some of the best feuds for CM Punk that I look forward to while CM Punk is on WWE Smackdown.

5. CM Punk vs. The Undertaker

This feud is a dead give away. Haha, you get the joke? Because the Undertaker is the dead man? Ahem. Anyway, this match should be great. The Undertaker's PPV matches have been amazing even as he ever so gracefully ages, so long as the matches are against younger guys who can bump, work and sell. If anyone, I would hope for CM Punk to end The Undertaker's streak next Wrestlemania.

4. CM Punk vs. Chris Jericho

Although these two were both on Raw, they have never had a solid feud against one another. I am really looking forward to seeing what these two could do in a heated feud involving two PPV matches of 20 minutes each. Make the second one a ladder match and it sells itself. These two could truly steal the show.

3. CM Punk vs. Jeff Hardy

This is another feud that while the opportunity has been there, it has simply never happened. One day these two will lock it up. Can you imagine what CM Punk vs. Jeff Hardy would be like in a ladder match? How about throwing Christian in there as well making it a three way dance for the World Title? That would be so amazing that I would actually buy a PPV for once. You guys listening? CM Punk is awesome.

2. CM Punk vs. Edge

This is a feud that we never really got to see play out. CM Punk won the World Title from Edge by cashing in the Money in the Bank briefcase last year, but Edge was in actuality injured so we never got to see the two have a revenge feud. If CM Punk were to win the title again it would be very interesting to see Edge chase CM Punk for the title. Or more likely perhaps, we will see Edge win the World Title soon and then CM Punk cash in the Money in the Bank briefcase to win the title from Edge once again.

1. CM Punk vs. Rey Mysterio

Rey Mysterio is amazing and has many years left in him. He is a great performer and that he continues to work the style that he does is amazing. Soon I look forward to seeing Rey Mysterio vs. CM Punk in a match, hopefully for the Intercontinental Title. If given 20 minutes I think this match could be the best match on any PPV anywhere ever. Ever.

CM Punk - Intercontinental Triple Crown Champion

CM Punk has won the Intercontinental Championship!

On WWE RAW CM Punk faced off with William Regal in Punk's hometown of Chicago. The match was long and grueling, with both opponents getting to do wrestling moves back and forth to each other in a showcase of struggling and what I think might have been grit. At one point it looked like Regal's mouth got busted open, though the announcers didn't acknowledge that.

Later on into the match, CM Punk did a springboard clothesline that he does all the time and it was awesome.

Finally CM Punk hoisted William Regal up on his shoulders for the Go 2 Sleep. Regal threw viscious elbows to CM Punk's face but CM Punk continued to show what I think might have been grit or determination or some sort of emotion possibly and then finally dropped William Regal's Face onto his knee, pinned him one-two-three, and sent him back home to the nursery.

CM Punk hoisted the WWE Intercontinental Title, but there is something that the announcers and WWE have yet to acknowledge.

CM Punk is the fastest ever WWE Triple Crown Champion, like a year or something crazy like that. Amazing show of faith in a young and amazing talent. He's held the ECW Title, WWE World Title, Intercontinental Title, and WWE Tag Titles.

CM Punk truly is and has been destined for many great things in the WWE and as a wrestler. Congratulations on your Intercontinental Championship, you'll need it on your mantle to go with the rest of your WWE gold and bling. BTW, you still have that ROH Title on your mantle?
