Oh boy. You're adorable. I'll ignore how obviously incorrect your claim that the entire crowd was full of smarks and pose you this question; if the entire crowd for roughly a year and a half was full of smarks, and everyone buying the WWE network were smarks, then how would pandering to them not be the best decision?
Hes got the GOTG cash cow now and was even in a bond film.
Filming a movie for 3 weeks and collecting a multimillion dollar paycheck is better than taking bumps and doing house shows for a whole year for less
While that's true, Batista is a wrestler at heart and just like Rock they consider the ring to be a way different experience in terms of instant gratification and I guess actualisation. Basically it's the best ego-trip ever, so he'll back.
Batista said in an interview that he'd more likely meet The Rock on a ring than on a set when asked about him, so I guess it's not impossible. Maybe not during the short period.
And Vince hates CM anyways so it's a good riddance to him.
DEAL WITH IT
heel batista was based as fuck man.
You mean the chant of "Daniel Bryan" that kept popping up for (again) a year and a half despite all attempts to cool him down?
You can keep being a contrarian if you want be we all know 2 things; I'm right and you're booty bothered.
>People like Batista now cause Marvel and 007 shite, but you all forgot than he was slow as fuck and the only good match than he had is that last run was against DB and Orton.
They don't forget at all. He was a joke for the entirety of his run and only sharpened to a semi-serviceable state for his final few matches which were all multi-mans he could be easily protected.
They're just memeing.
Pisses me off that a whiny bitch ruined her dream because he got so mad at not having the biggest wrestling company in the world revolve around him. The fucking ego on Punk is disgusting
What killed Punk was his ego. If he just dropped the pipe-bomb, but didn't make everything about *him* it would've made it look more like WWE's fault. Now it's just a clean 50/50 WWE being shit + Punk being bitchy.
He was one of my favorites during attitude era. I even ran a gangrel fan-site back in the late 90's. come.to/the_brood. it's long gone now though.
I agree and event though I too junped on the DBry bandwagon, I was hyped for Batista's return. I guess it all turned out to good in the end though becuase I fucking loved heel Batista and the Evolution reunion/ Shield feud.
What storyline would Punk be involved in today ?
Its Wrestlemania season so I assume he would be denied a spot in the main event.
Maybe Punk vs HHH and he would have went full blown 4th wall breaking again
face run against triple h, culminating in a world championship fight in the third-to-last match at wrestlemania.
triple h wins clean, and the next night on RAW opens the show by vacating the title and retiring.
following a falling out with the company, CM Punk decides to pursue a career racing F1 cars.
>steph and trips leave RAW in a limousine
>after getting through the exit ramp a large truck zooms in from the side of the building
>it smashes into the limo, rips it in two, and sends blood and glass flying everywhere
>the driver of the truck emerges
>it's shane mcmahon and he's visibly intoxicated
His health concerns were valid. The fact that other wrestlers endure similar in scale (and maybe even worse) issues isn't a mark against punk, its a mark against Vince for creating an environment that rewards ignoring your well being and punishes worrying about it. His ego is irrelevant.
