Winner: The Awesome Punk (12/20)
Thanks to those that participated in the competition; as promised The Awesome Punk gets his prize of a review plus also an influence on the booking of the next pay per view, which will reveal to him specifically once I post a few more shows.
In the meantime, here's some news to give this post some extra substance.
The WWE has been rattled by the news that as many as eight top stars are leaving the company and it has been confirmed that three have already done so for differing reasons. The Big Show and Kane have both retired from in ring competition to give their bodies a rest and although they have been offered blow-off feuds they have declined. Show and Kane are expected to work a backstage role in mentoring and training until their contracts expire, and apparently neither have ruled out appearing on screen once or twice since then.
Also confirmed to have retired, but by force, is Mark Henry, who has been told he suffered a pinched nerve in his shoulder after wrestling at a house show on the weekend of Capitol Punishment. Henry has followed doctor's advice to immediately stop competing and he will do so. We are yet to know if the WWE will release him from his contract, but like Show and Kane, he may work backstage until his contract expires.
Other names linked to this big storyline are Triple H, Rey Mysterio, The Undertaker, The Great Khali and surprisingly World Heavyweight Champion Christian as well. We'll get further news regarding these other names as soon as we can, but for now, the extent of this drama is surrounded by mystery and uncertainty.
PS- I'm still in the process of returning reviews for Capitol Punishment and anyone that hasn't got theirs back, rest assured it's coming.
