Re: CM Punk Promo... I'm Sorry.
I disagree for 2 big reasons.
For one, he only looked good before The Rock came out. Once The Rock came out, he looked like a little weenie by comparison. The only part where Punk actually mounted any verbal offense fell flat for me because he was threatening a dude who is almost literally twice as strong as him, faster than him, and much bigger in stature.
My girlfriend laughed at out when Punk made the threats, and when I asked why after the show, she said because it was impossible to take him threatening The Rock seriously. It just seemed awkward.
And two: The "good part" of the promo, before The Rock came out. . .yeah, it sounded familar. Why you ask?
Skip to 2 minutes in:
Basically the same shit. "I got you to cheer for me, I don't give a shit about any of you. I manipulated you all. I was lying all along". Brings up super heroes. Attacks the fans. Calls the fans puppets. Says he hates the fans and that he's better than them. Says each and every thing in both promos.
The only really difference is that he's calling himself the "devil" in that promo instead of "god". It was just a recycled promo. Just like the pipebomb promo against Cena before MITB was a patchwork recycle of the Carlito promo against Cena a couple years prior.
