cm punk is better than you

I said this a long time ago, and it’s funny because I said it to CM Punk, but my whole goal is to leave this place better than I found it. I meant that. This business runs…people can say whatever they want about me, I was born in this business, this business runs through my veins. If you cut my arm, it’s WWE that will leak out of that. I was fed since I can remember, from my dad and if my dad wasn’t there, then another man in our family stepped up and he was most likely making money through this business. I’ve experienced a lot of hardships and a lot of great moments throughout my life because of this business. But the bottom line is it’s fed me my entire life. I don’t care who you are, you will not disrespect it. Not in front of me, not today, not any day that I’m alive.
—  Roman Reigns on what he told CM Punk via
Nikki Bella: A Story Of Sexism In Wrestling.

If you were watching Monday Night Raw today, you are well aware that WWE Diva’s champion, Nikki Bella, defended her title and is now on the way to breaking the record for the longest reigning Diva’s champion in the companies history held by former employee — AJ Lee. There’s been a lot of criticism about the reign itself as people feel that Nikki is only where she is because of who she’s dating — John Cena — and because of the bad terms the company is on with AJ Lee’s husband, CM Punk.

It’s all fine and good to have negative feelings about a heel (villains) victories, but a lot of fans tonight on Twitter and elsewhere around the web took it way too far. The character of Nikki is a strong, athletic woman who claims she’s the best because she’s managed to hold the title for so long, despite the fans knowing that she’s only kept it due to interference from her twin sister and cheating. This is what makes her a heel. Never once has her character used a man or his influence to get a leg up on the competition and hold onto the title, which makes everything I read on Twitter even worse.

Some of the things I heard her called tonight: A cum bucket a cum guzzler; a slut, a whore, 5 cent hoe. It’d be one thing if her character was well known for being a whore, but this is never the case. The hatred for her goes beyond a fictional story and straight into her real life and that’s unacceptable.

I feel this is a blatant case of sexism because if you look at a guy I previously mentioned in this article — CM Punk — he’s also been known as a guy who broke records for holding titles a long time as a dastardly heel who cheated to gain victories and claimed he was the “best in the world” yet you know what he got? people calling him great, one of the best, the true champion. He might have heard some negative things from time to time like people telling him he’s a loser and a cheater, but not once did someone take out a personal attack on him despite his history of sleeping with almost every woman in wrestling, no one called him a man whore. Or if they did, they said it as a personal accomplishment.

“CM Punk bagged Maria? wow, what a brilliant guy.”

This is a blatant case of sexism and it made me ashamed to be a wrestling fan to hear all these people saying what they said and reading the replies agreeing with it.

What makes the attacks on Nikki seem even worse, is that outside the ring she seems like a better role model than most women on the roster. She’s often posting inspirational quotes on her instagram for her “Bella army” to read and get inspired from. She promotes positive body image by spreading the message that you can still care about how you look, wear make-up and dresses and high heels, but also be an athletic, strong woman. She promotes a lot of positivity.

Wrestling is meant to be fun … if you hate the character, fine — boo them, tell them they suck and that you hate them. That’s all well and good, just don’t go attacking them personally. They put their bodies on the line for you and you can at least appreciate that, whether you love or hate them, it doesn’t matter.

To the people who chant "CM Punk!"

Keep going. Showing your support for a superstar isn’t a bad thing. If you like CM Punk and feel like chanting CM Punk’s name. You fucking go for it. Plus it annoys people on here and theres nothing better than watching loads of people getting annoyed, however Raw is in Chicago next week so have fun with that one guys.

CM Punk (2009)

You’re lying to yourselves right now, you’re lying to the person next to you, you go home and you lie to your family, and it’s insulting because right now you’re lying to me. And I can see right through all of you people and your lies because I am not a liar. I am a man who means what he says and says what he means. What I am is a prophet. I am the choice of a new generation. I am a champion that everybody can finally be proud of. I am the first and only straight-edge World Heavyweight Champion in history! And if you’re not straight-edge like me, well that just means I’m better than you!

Scene: A not-too-distant Monday night...

(The views in this promo are not necessarily those of the author.)

The opening riff of “Cult of Personality” rings through the arena…

King: Is that…is that…?!

Cole: I don’t believe it!

JBL: Believe it, Maggle, he’s back!

He walks down to the ring, climbs the corner and tears off the hoodie to reveal:

JBL: *cracks up laughing*

King: Not again!

Smiling as the crowd boos, he grabs the mic…

“At last, the wait is over…DS Punk is back!” *booing intensifies*

“And now that all of you can stop chanting my name every 10 minutes and actually pay attention, let me get something off my chest.  You see, I didn’t leave because I hate you people. I don’t even dislike you.  I like going to hockey games a lot more, but that’s another story.  What I hate is this idea you people have that I’m the best.  Because I’m not.  Damien Sandow is the best in the world.  There’s one thing I’m better at than he is, and that’s sitting at home and watching "The Walking Dead” reruns!  *nuclear booing ensues*  That’s right, I’m a Damien Sandow Guy!“

Suddenly, Handel’s "Hallelujah Chorus” cuts him off…

JBL: Who in the hell…

King: No…Oh my God!!

As the arena erupts at their hero’s triumphant return, the camera catches DS Punk, frozen in shock, awaiting CM Sandow’s revenge.

The End.

People only like Dean and Seth because they are from the indies.

Roman Reigns is better wrestler than Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins.

Roman Reigns can’t wrestle.

Roman Reigns is obviously the most hard working member of The Shield.

Dean Ambrose is a greasy, bolding, junkie and you shouldn’t like him.

Roman should manage/be a spokesman for Dean like Jesse was for Festus.

Roman is only being pushed because he’s Anoai.

Seth is a scumbag traitor and he should die.

Seth was the worst of The Shield.

Mox is finally back

Actual shit i have read/stumbled upon this past week

Sooooo....this happened at PayBack:

1. This one white man first booed Roman, later on during Roman’s match said “You’re the reason I hate Samoans” but then he followed it up with “Bring back Rikishi”, then in the end CHEERED for Roman.

2. I literally thought I was the ONLY one cheering for Roman from how loud they were booing him.

3. I can kinda understand why people are calling Roman “John Cena 2.0” because he literally kicked out of every finisher AJ performed on him, even the back-to-back finishers. While AJ gets speared and he couldn’t kick out.

4. Going to see a live show was the only time my heart was racing from anticipation and excitement.

5. Enzo’s injury scared the FUCK outta me!

6. I was quiet as a church mouse when they were chanting “CM Punk” at Vince.

7. All the chants I heard before, during, and after the show were: “AJ Lee” “CM Punk” “Colt Cabana” “Woo” “Nattie” “Goldberg” “Fight Owens Fight” “Ole Ole” “Oh Enzo Amore” “How You Doin’” “You can’t wrestle” “Roman sucks” “You still suck” “AJ Styles” “Yes!”

8. The boos weren’t as severe as the show went on, but after Roman’s match they weren’t so many boos, but they still booed.

9. Someone said Rosey is better than Roman.

10. People were hoping for Finn Balor to come out during AJ’s match

11. I was hoping Seth Rollins was coming, but he didn’t.

12. I didn’t realize until after the match that AJ hit back to back finishers and Roman still kicked out, but one spear was enough to end AJ.

13. Anderson and Gallows needs to sit their bald asses down somewhere.

14. I was almost afraid to cheer for Roman because he how much he was getting booed. Almost.

15. When I tell you I thought I was the only one cheering for Roman in that arena….that’s how loud they were booing him. Despite sitting around at least 4 Roman fans.

16. A little girl had a “Chyna” sign. My heart 😭

17. One or two people said “We Want Sandow” “Push Damien Sandow” or “Free Sandow”

18. The pyro and explosions for Jericho, Ryback and Styles were loud as fuck.

19. For those saying Roman’s fans are just women and children, you’re wrong.

C2E2 was unforgettable. Most importantly, the best part of my day was meeting CM Punk. He wished me happy birthday and he was suck a sweetheart. I was on the verge of tears but he was helping me feel better by making me laugh. I also gave him a letter I wrote and then I was like “I wrote this for you” He grabs it and was examining the green envelope and he was like “you wrote this for me?” And then I was like “Well.. no there’s a letter inside that I wrote for you.” We both laugh and he says “Ah okay, makes sense” and laughs again. When he finished signing my shirt, I tell him if he can wish me a happy birthday and he says “Oh happy birthday! You should’ve told me before I signed the shirt"jokingly. I was like "awwe well… my name’s Lizzy” WHAT POSSESSED ME TO SAY THIS? I DON’T KNOW. He then says “Awwe well it’s very nice to meet you, Lizzy” and he shakes my hand and locked eyes and I just feel the chills. I start to tear up and I’m like “Oh my god.. sorry I’m gonna cry…” and he looks at me and he’s like “No, no, don’t cry. Just happy tears, happy tears” and smiles at me. We say goodbye, share hands, and off to the Spotlight panel. His panel was AWESOME! And the photo-op was amazing! I was thw first one in like and as soon as I walked in the booth, he smiled at me and began stretching and said “You ready to do some yoga? We’re gonna do some yoga today!” I was like “Awe really? I don’t do yoga!” He stops and laughs then says “nah I’m just kidding! What do you wanna do?” And i asked if I can hug him and agrees to it. So he gets close to me and it felt like i waa standing next to a giant. Keep in mind, I’m 4'11". So we pose and then he flexes 😂😂 This man is the reason I’m here right now and he made my birthday wish come true. Meeting him completed my life and I couldn’t ask for a better role model than him. I love him with all my heart and support him to infinity and beyond❤
