What if this does play into a future storyline between the two? Either to unify the belts, or once they're both going for the same title? It wouldn't entirely surprise me if they're planting the seeds for the feud. The only question is when does it happen? I mean if it's Rock/Cena for WWE Title, Taker/Lesnar... and Punk/Sheamus for WHC? Wasn't my ideal match for Punk, but I could dig it. Of course Sheamus would be going over, but I've accepted the fact WWE wants him as the next top face and there's not much that can be done about it unless Sheamus royally fucks up.
Everyone's different? Come on lol. I'm not trying to play the CM PUNK BREKS DA KAYFABE DURR card here but who else would get a storyline like this other than Punk? Seamus is cartoony as it gets with regards to his character while Punk is the complete opposite. He'd never get to cut a promo like that and quite frankly, I wouldn't want him to. Punk occasionally blurring those lines is more than enough. Jesus though. All I said is that I don't think he should have said it the way he did. Where's the fire lol?

Punk's notorious for treading the line between kayfabe and the real world so it was natural for him to cut the promo the way he did. Fits his character really well.

edit - HHH better knock the broomstick out with a sledgehammer.

I know you don't hate Punk, but you don't like him either, but there's those like Jammy in this thread who are all over Punk's case, which is not surprising at all considering he shits over him in every post.
I would have cringed no matter who said it because I don't think it was a good thing to say or a good light to portray your WHC in. Doesn't matter who said it or who it was said to. I didn't like it that HHH made the broomstick comment and I didn't like some of the things Cena said in his promos on Rock and I'm a huge mark for both guys. I'm not playing favorites. And I wouldn't call myself a fan of Seamus per se. I don't mind him though and usually enjoy him when he's on depending on what he's doing. I don't know where you're getting that I don't like Punk from though. I don't mark for him but that doesn't mean that I don't like him. When he does something interesting, I'm interested. When he doesn't, I'm usually not or I just go with the flow.

But that's my point. Everyone's different and chances are Sheamus wouldn't be right in the role Punk is in now. The current Sheamus, absolutely not. Even the Sheamus from 2009-2010 wouldn't fit.

I do wonder, if you haven't said in this thread yet, how would you have had Punk say that? If the problem is how he said it and not necessarily what he said, how would you have put it? (This isn't me trying to tease, I'm curious as to what your ideal way of putting the idea of what Punk was saying into words).

*slide in with my input that no one asked for*

That's the thing though, I wouldn't have CM Punk change what he said. Like I said before I would have Sheamus's reply be a much sharper "step into the ring with me and I'll show you I'm not second best." Because CM Punk has always pegged his BITW gimmick on having the WWE championship, he has said several times before that that championship means that he is the best. He never said it in such explicit comparison to the WHC but he has done. So it would have been best with a Sheamus counter.

^^^^ Yes. Seamus just standing there and accepting it didn't help matters either lol.

There's a big difference between, "I'm the WWE Champ because I'm the BITW and that makes me better than you" and "You're the WHC so you're second best to me." In the first, Punk is focusing on himself, what he is and why he is better. In the second, Punk is saying that because Seamus is the WHC, that makes him second best. He isn't talking about what Seamus himself is, he's focusing on the title and proclaiming it to be inferior because of what IT is and therefore the champion himself. I just didn't like the way it was phrased but I honestly don't think it's that big of a deal. Most people will have forgotten about it already.

EDIT - I realize that will come across as nitpicky but I can't help what naturally ran through my mind after hearing the promo.

lol, I did forget about it until I saw this thread.

But fair enough. That would've been a better way to put it. I still think it's fine what Punk said, but perhaps it wasn't the best way to go about it. And as greendayedgehead said, doesn't help Sheamus' response was pretty weak.

Not to mention also they were in Punk's hometown, with the crowd very firmly against Sheamus when talking to Punk. Hell even when Sheamus tried to show sympathy for the crowd after Punk refused them a match, they still wanted none of it. And then they cheer Punk later on.

Chicago is Chicago.

I read somewhere that a lot of Punk fans were mad because they didn't get to see him wrestle which made me because I know for a fact that they were probably the same people cheering for him when he walked out on the match. It's just so fucking stupid lol.

Actually didn't he get a chorus of boos for that? It was only after Sheamus started talking that I think the crowd re-directed their attention towards Sheamus, and then 5 seconds later when Punk was leaving in his car they were cheering him.

I heard people cheering when he dropped the mic. Cheering mixed with booing.
