IMO,Summer of Punk peaked with that classic match at MITB and from then it was bound to fall.I really didn't see Summer of Punk having as much potential as the Corporation angle.With that being said,it was horribly booked post MITB.I still don't understand the Punk/Nash/HHH clusterfuck that happened and felt it could have been handled better.

How would you have booked Summer of Punk post MITB?

Punk vs Nash should have happened later that year,and the feud should have culminated with Punk defeating HHH at WM.

I am not talking about the end result of beating the big bad villain(HHH).Barring few exceptions,I don't think it's possible to hold interest in a feud for so long.I am asking about the booking immediately after MITB.

First of all : Punk shouldn't have lost the TITLE TO ALBERTO FUCKING DEL RIO , ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ?

2nd I would have had Triple H turn heel , take the title from Punk, and never grant him a match, untill Punk wins the Rumble and Hunter has two ..

however at the time, I thought WWE should have brought Punk back around new year/rumble and lived without the wwe title for a while..

Is it realistically possible?

Rey Vs Cena should've been done at Summerslam with Punk returning the following night.

Keep Punk off of TV till around Summerslam. Have him film video documentaries of him with his WWE Belt taunting Vince and HHH.
His comic con appearance where he antagonised HHH was great. They should have had him off of TV but still have him making his presence felt and reminding Vince and HHH that he has their property.
Eventually Cena challenges Punk to prove that he is man enough to face him at Summerslam by laying down a challenge, Punk accepts and it's Cena v Punk for the title at Summerslam.
The week before Summerslam on Raw Punk resigns his WWE contract and signs another contract to face Cena at Summerslam. Punk and Cena have a pull apart brawl that leaves referees lying in their wake. To respond to this, Vince makes HHH the guest referee at Summerslam.
Punk v Cena at Summerslam. HHH screws Punk and turns heel. Then Del Rio cashes in on Cena and becomes new WWE Champ and Vince and HHH's handpicked WWE Champion. Vince could pull some legal bullshit and rip up Punk's contract and fire him at SS.
HHH and Vince then start to exert their power and laying down the law, prompting heels to side with them and babyfaces to rebel against them. Some babyfaces don't trust Cena (seeds of a heel turn down the road) and start to ostracise him.
During the next few months have Punk make Vince and HHH's lives a living hell by showing up and interfering in their business. I'd have Punk be arrested for beating Vince up. In his fury, HHH challenges Punk to a match at Survivor Series, where if Punk wins, he'll be reinstated.
Punk wins and is reinstated.
Punk then goes on to defeat ADR at TLC 2011 for the WWE Title.

I like this. I would've had Punk show up at TNA with the title. (Perhaps even talking with Dixie/Hogan/Bischoff and teasing to trash the WWE title) If Vince really wanted us to "buy the threat" of another Bret Hart to WCW scenario, he should've let him do it.

OMG, can you imagine Punk getting in the ring and letting the then, TNA World heavyweight champion (Sting) finger poke of doom him and then handing the WWE title over to him, before Sting tossed the WWE title in the trash?!?! Can you imagine? That would've been HUGE for TNA!

Then have Vince beg for Punk to come back. And he does, but there's no WWE Championship. So Vince pleads for TNA to allow Sting to come over to the WWE for one night only (Summer Slam) and compete in a triple-threat match against Punk and Cena for the WWE Championship. And Dixie says she allows it, but that it's all up to Sting.

Sting then makes a list of demands, etc. and Vince agrees.

Sting comes over for the triple-threat match at Summer Slam. Sting "retains". Punk and Cena continue their feud outside of the WWE title picture and Sting decides he doesn't want any further dealings with the WWE and is threatening to leave with the WWE title and return to TNA.

Houston, we have a problem!

On the night (next RAW) Sting attempts to leave the arena with the WWE title (after a promo), we hear... "DONG..."

And so it begins!

Yeah, if Vince really wanted to sell it that would have been awesome.
If I were booking I'd definitely have Punk show up in other Wrestling organisations and making his presence felt. I'd have definitely used the internet and viral marketing to promote Punk as a menace to the WWE officials.

I think that him leaving with the title was perfect. In the infamous pipe bomb he talks about going back to ROH, going to japan etc. Then he leaves with the title like he said he would and then he comes back a week or 2 later.

With today's technology with youtube, twitter, facebook etc. no longer being on 'the show' isn't that big of a problem. They had him show up at comic con which was great. It seemed they only took a half measure that didn't really accomplish much. With that said.

I would have him show up in Ring of Honor. Send a camera crew with him going into the building, jump the railing claiming he is back in Ring of Honor. Let him defend the title and win against an upper mid card talent. Edit a recap of it and put it on RAW. Have him labelled as a trader and how they are going to take legal action for stealing WWE property.

I'd have punk blog about these types of things, where he holds his own cell phone camera, let him run his mouth about WWE. Post it on twitter, youtube etc. Then have punk head to japan, defend it in New Japan or NOAH. Do the same type of thing, have a recap on raw.

Make sure there is a lot of confusion on raw about what they are going to do with the title. Who is champion, who deserves the title. Have the wrestlers complaining to the GM/Triple H etc.

Management announces that Punk has agreed to meet at WWE headquarters to resolve the issue. WWE is filing charges against punk, for stealing their property. Have it be Triple H and the rest of the authority figures being ultra serious and formal, But punk knows it's a joke. Let Punk get in a few pipebombs tear management apart. Punk's whole point is that people only get ahead by sucking up to the WWE corporate image. It has nothing to do with talent. WWE feels Punk disgraced the company and they demand their property back.

The way I would show it is through multiple segments played on RAW. This would allow it to seem like they were talking for a while and a lot more was said. Punk is given an ultimatum, give the title back or the matter will be taken to court. Punk is given 1 week to comply.

During the week have on WWE.com/twitter etc. state that Punk has agreed to bring the title back to WWE next week on RAW.

Have Triple H come out and refresh people what is going on. Have Punk's music hit, he walks out with the title. Triple H is saying how 'Punk is doing the right thing blah blah blah now hand it over'. Punk says 'he said that he agreed to bring the title back to the WWE. But he is still the champion, if they want to keep the title they are going to have to earn it.' Triple H says 'it doesn't work like that. The title is WWE proper...' Punk gives Triple H a kick to the head which knocks him down. Punk begins to walk out through the crowd. Triple H gets on the mic 'ok punk if that's the way you want to play it, FINE. Forget the lawyers, forget the courts. You've made this personal. At [next ppv] it will be me and you punk. If you win you'll get your new contract. We'll give you all the endorsement deals you want. But if you lose, not only will you lose the title, but you will be banned from WWE.'

Punk likes the idea he agrees to it. and the next ppv is Punk vs HHH. They do a montreal screw job angle where punk loses. Security escorts punk out of the building, but he goes after taking out several security members.

Next night on RAW Triple H begins his whole 'best for business persona' he did it because it was the right thing to do. Have Cena come out and claim that Triple H was wrong for screwing punk out of the title. Triple H compromised the integrity that WWE stands behind. And disrespected the wwe but most importantly the WWE universe.

Eventually I'd have punk come back and distract Triple H having cena win the title. Which would then lead to a triple threat for the title. Have Punk win, but there would a stipulation if he won he'd get the new contract.

This is how I would have done it

1. Punk defeats Cena at MITB and escapes through the crowd, wouldn't change anything here
2. HHH sets up a WWE Title Tournament to crown a new Champion with the finals at Summerslam
3. This sets up Rey vs Cena for the WWE Title at Summerslam
4. Rey defeats Cena at Summerslam to become the WWE Champion
5. Next night on Raw after a match, Del Rio cashes in the MITB and wins the WWE Title
6. This leads to Del Rio vs Rey at Night of Champions, Del Rio retains with some outside interference from Ricardo, after the match Del Rio continues attacking Rey's arm and snaps it, Cena tries to make the save but it's too late
7. This sets up Del Rio vs Cena at HIAC for the WWE title, after being handed a lead pipe through the cage by Ricardo, Del Rio Retains
8. Due to outside interference we get Del Rio vs Cena at Vengence in a NODQ match, Cena overcomes the odds and defeats Del Rio
9. Del Rio demands and is granted is rematch the next night on Raw, Cena again defeats Del Rio
10. Cue "CULT OF PERSONALITY" Raw goes off the air with CM Punk and Cena standing in the middle of the ring with their respective WWE Championships
11. Next week on Raw HHH sets up Punk vs Cena II at Survivor Series in Madison Square Garden to crown the Undisputed WWE Champion
12. Punk defeats Cena clean in MSG to the delight of the New York crowd
13. HHH sets up Punk vs Cena vs Del Rio at the TLC PPV, in a TLC match, Punk retains after pushing Del Rio off the ladder and landing ontop of Cena on the outside of the ring
14. A 15 man battle royal is set up to crown a number one contender for the Rumble, Ziggler wins setting up Punk vs Ziggler
15. Punk defeats Ziggler by rolling him up and grabbing his tights(something Ziggler attempted earlier in the match)
16. Ziggler complains about Punk's cheating and is granted a rematch the next night on Raw, HHH makes himself the Special Guest Referee, Punk defeats Ziggler with the GTS this time
17. HHH hands Punk the WWE Title and when he turns around HHH swings him by his arm and hits the Pedigree
18. Next week on Raw HHH explains that he brought Punk back to quiet the critics who said Punk is the rightful Champion, but Cena couldn't get the job done because he's weak, he says he can't have a Punk represent the company as Champion and makes a 3-1 gauntlet match that night for the WWE Title Punk vs Miz/Ziggler/Del Rio
19. Punk defeats all three men to HHH's dismay, after the match Punk grabs the mic and tells HHH if he doesn't want Punk holding the WWE title that he should do something about it himself and challenges HHH to a match at WM28
20. HHH declines and says he is a businessman and doesn't want to soil his hands touching CM Punk, HHH makes a match that night Punk vs Kane for the WWE Title
21. Punk defeats Kane with HHH sitting at ringside, after the match HHH attacks Punk with a steel chair, grabs the WWE title looks at the WM28 sign and accepts the match
22. After several weeks of instense promo's between the two we get Punk vs HHH for the WWE Title at WM28
23. After gruelling match, Punk defeats HHH is spectactular fashion using the Pepsi Plunge (Pedigree of the middle rope, used by Punk on the indies and ROH)

In case you've never seen the Pepsi Plunge


With Punk taking on HHH, this leaves Undertaker to take on Jericho
-Jericho returns after weeks of promo's and only says a few words, "It is the end of the world as you know it" drops the mic and leaves the ring
-Jericho goes on to win the Royal Rumble
-Next night on Raw Jericho explains that he isn't going to challenge for the WWE or World Titles, he's using the right to challenge a Champion to challenge for the Streak and says if Taker accepts, it will be the end of the world as we know it (meaning he will end the streak)
-Taker returns the following week and accepts Jericho's challenge, as he leaves the ring Jericho attacks Taker and beats him to a pulp
-After an incredible match with several false finishes including Jericho almost making Taker tap out to the Walls of Jericho, Taker defeats Jericho after a Tombestone

Exactly this. The title tournament should have stretched out over the Summer. Make it huge. Culminates at Summer Slam with Cena vs Mysterio. With Cena winning. Next night on Raw, Cena is going to be presented with the new title and during the ceremony Cult of Personality blares and Punk walks out on stage.

During the months off Punk could have stayed in the news with appearances at other sporting and entertainment events with the title - keeping fans up to date via his twitter if nothing else. He could have went to indie shows with it etc.

Cena vs Punk could have been the big epic feud of this era. It's fuck up to me is right up there with the Invasion Angle botch.

  • Night after introduce Triple H as a 'Corporate' figure with him convincing Vince to let him 'deal' with this matter and try to sign Punk, Vince isn't fired or relieved of his duties
  • Summerslam Main Event is John Cena vs Rey Mysterio
  • CM Punk makes a run in through the crowd (commentators stay silent) and hits Cena with the belt
  • Triple H does 1 or two promo's regarding Punk, and invites to clear the air at Night of Champions
  • Punk/HHH Promo with Kevin Nash attacking Punk and Del Rio cashing in on Punk (causing for there to be 2 Champions Rey and Del Rio)
  • Night after Triple H says he had nothing to do with Nash attacking Punk, Punk fucks up the entire night, brawl to kick off the show with Triple H and then a run in to fuck up Del Rio later, escorted out by cops
  • Punk then demands he gets his hands on Nash, and Del Rio but only if he resigns
  • Nash/Punk at Survivor Series, Punk/Del Rio at TLC with no finish. Jericho wins Title at Rumble and Punk wins Rumble.

He should've stayed away longer than he did. That just felt rushed.

And HHH should've went heel. Having HHH getting close to half of the face cheers in the matchup was dumb. He should've went heel.....and he should NOT have beaten Punk.

I would've done what a few others in this thread said and had the WWE Title tournament stretch out to SummerSlam with Cena going over Rey in the finals. Have Punk come back and do the Undisputed title thing at NoC, then a blow-off match at HIAC between Punk and Cena.
