Socially Relevant

Just as he said, CM Punk has made the WWE socially relevant once again. Check these links for some pre-MitB commentary from ESPN and a fantastic interview via GQ:

The GQ&A: CM Punk

Last night lived up to (and perhaps even exceeded) expectations. Fun show, compelling, left us asking questions and looking forward to Raw tonight!


For most of the last 30+ years of my life, I've been watching WWE. As a kid, Monday Night Raw hooked me from the start. From Bret Hart and Razor Ramon, to Stone Cold Steve Austin and The Rock, to CM Punk and Daniel Bryan.. I've witnessed the ups and downs and I'm proud to have enjoyed pro wrestling through the years. Though I now watch in a much different fashion than I did when I was a kid (finding out Vince McMahon was the owner and Jack Tunney no more than a figurehead was like finding out Santa Claus did not exist), I feel like I have a much greater appreciation for the hard work pro wrestlers do and the things they sacrifice to entertain us. It's still real to me, dammit!
