What better way to start off the month of February 2014 with instead of talking about the merits of both Nickelback and I,FRANKENSTEIN,I’ll instead talk about more wrestling news(lots has been happening in the squared circle universe lately)…
* CM PUNK LEAVES THE WWE: Lots of massive chatter have been running amuck around the ‘Net for the last couple of days after CM Punk walked out on the WWE,right before both WrestleMania 30 and the end of his current contract,with both Vince McMahon and the Punk fans wanting Punk back,but Triple H and many of the behind-the-scene people wanting Punk to be gone. With Punk gone(for now),the wise thing for him to do right now is to just merely take some lengthy time off and possibly take the Brock Lesnar route in joining the UFC,since Punk fights more like an MMA fighter than a wrestler and he would be a great fit for the Land Of Georges St. Pierre(GSP),Frank Mir,Ronda Rousey,and (of course)Dana White,working there for a few years and then returning to the WWE to work a limited schedule with much higher pay,for if it can work for Brock then it can also work for Punk,rather than Punk being forced to return and then quickly retreating away once again(instead of making high demands for both better pay and a top spot[while near the end of his previous contract] like he did three years ago).
* MATT HARDY ARRESTED: Former WWE superstar-turned-indie wrestling performer Matt Hardy has befallen upon his demons again,this time having been arrested(along with his wife Reby Sky) for being intoxicated and getting into a physical altercation with Sky. Very sad to hear this,remembering how Matt spent the last two years heavily plagued by drug abuse problems that landed him in both jail and rehab and nearly ruined his career,which he re-invented via heavily working through the indie circuit(in federations such as Ring Of Honor and Extreme Rising). Hopefully ,Matt will keep his head fully clear and stay out of further trouble that could possibly scar(and ruin) his career rebuild attempt.
* MORE STING IN THE WWE: With CM Punk gone and MVP having debuted in TNA,it’s getting to become more possible that Sting will make that long awaited jump to the WWE,with the WWE executives talking with Sting about becoming a possible new WWE Raw General Manager after Wrestlemania 30,for as silly as it sounds I’d rather see the Stinger don the General Maanger attire than both the ridiculous Brad Maddox and the obnoxious(and highly unwatchable) Vickie Guerrero,for anything to get Sting into the WWE,as well as be a bravely strong crusader for Daniel Bryan and all of the other face wrestlers.
There you go with more wrestling news,for I’ll discuss more when they crop up…
