WWE News – Backlash over the HHH era
Speaking of Terry Funk, the wrestling legend publicly endorsed CM Punk recently. Funk believes that Punk can do great things for the WWE if the McMahons let punk have some freedom in his promos. Funk is a big proponent of allowing wrestlers to use promos as an extension of their personalities and not the current method of being a puppet to the creative writers. According to MondayNightMayhem.com, Terry Funk made the following comments:
“I think he’s in sync with wrestling fans. I think he’s in sync with the country. I think it’s a very smart move on what he’s doing right now. I have a lot of respect for the guy. I have a lot of respect for his ability in the ring. I think CM Punk is a hell of an in-ring performer. If they let him go and go on his own, they might find out that he’s a hell of a talker.”
Punk has been widely praised by fans, peers, legends and pundits for his recent storyline over the last month. Punk shook up the wrestling industry with his work/shoot promo on the June 27th episode of WWE RAW. It was so well done that mainstream media outlets like ESPN covered the buzz.
Punk is currently set face John Cena at SummerSlam on August 14th to determine who’s the real champion as both men hold a version of the WWE championship belt. It’s being rumored that Punk will lose to Cena and potentially feud with HHH.
