Reigns spears Cena. Goes for the cover. Ref starts the count. Cena raises his head, looking for who’s making the save.
Given the selling level, I’m not sure if I should call this a Reverse Rollins or an Anti-Ziggler.
You may have heard by now that Punk has been officially added to the Alumni section.
Having an idea of his intense passion for the business, I’m happy for him and sad for us fans.
I’m happy for him because most of us can’t begin to comprehend the physical and mental stress that goes along with striving, scratching and clawing for the #1 spot, year in, year out.
I’m sad for us fans because he’s an undeniable asset to any company. He’s one of the very few whose promos are consistently top-notch and bring in something fresh every time. And you can count a lot of very good matches in the record books.
(I’ll highlight vs. Cena at MITB 2011, vs. Brock at Summerslam 2013 and everything with Jericho & Bryan)
Personally, it wasn’t the pipe bomb that “converted” me. It was the several promos the following weeks, plaguing Cena, Triple H, Vince, Laurinaitis with controversial, wise-cracking replies, up and down, left and right.
That was consistently must-see and very entertaining and not a one-time super promo.
So, in closing, I do feel he’ll be back eventually (to either WWE or RoH) but whatever happens I’m very glad he stopped by and gave us a lot of memorable moments.
Now… IT’S PHOTOSHOPPING TIIIIME!
