Word going around the WWE locker room is that the reason CM Punk lost the World Heavyweight Title last night is because of heat on him stemming from an incident on the recent European tour, according to Dave Meltzer’s Wrestling Observer Newsletter.
The story goes that there was in issue with how Punk was dressed, and The Undertaker tried to nicely tell Punk that he was the World Champion and was representing WWE overseas so he should dress better. Punk said something to the effect of "what about John Cena?"
This got back to WWE management and they took it as Punk thinking he was a bigger star than John Cena. Then the decision was made to take the belt off Punk at Hell in a Cell and put the match as the opener. There are a couple versions of the story going around, but which ever one is being told, the end result remains the same.
There are some backstage who are wondering why Undertaker was given the title considering his limited schedule and health problems with the feeling that it was too soon to take the title off Punk. Word is that WWE is planning on going with a Batista vs. Undertaker feud for the World Heavyweight Title.
Guys like Undertaker aren't neccessarily the most "professional", they're the guys who care about the overall product more than themselves and are willing to do whatever it takes to do the right thing for everyone. How about that backstage rumour of him threatening to beat someone up if he didn't do the job? Professional by no means, but it was certainly the best thing to do.
Edge once said "If you go into a storyline thinking it's gonna suck, then it's gonna end up sucking." I find that a very refreshing stance on things tbh, and it explains why he's often been in situations where he's been called 'above his role'. Make the best you can of it, unless Vince is approaching you about another of those creepy incest angles he's wanting to try out.
Right, so since I don't really have the time to consume 7 hours of WWE programming weekly anymore (or, in some instances, the interest), I thought it'd be a cool idea to make this a regularly updated thread where I and others who are in the same boat can be advised as to what matches are worth...
With the year coming to a close, and December generally being a nothing month in Wrestling, I thought this would be an interesting conversation to have now.
Across every promotion, who has been your Wrestler of the year?

With WWE announcing Corbin will "humiliate" Roman on SmackDown this Friday in Fayetteville, NC; it reminded me of when Triple H and Shawn came out as Vince and Shane back on RAW in 2006 (which ironically was in Fayetteville, NC also).
Now that both guys have had lengthy ME runs, who do you prefer?? Me personally, I don’t think either of them are FOTC material and should never be the top stars consistently. However I do think both guys are perfect for the midcard (IC title) and upper midcard (occasional ME run when needed). If...
