New CM Punk DVD in the works



CM Punk via Twitter this morning.

“Oh hey. Day 1 of filming for this little DVD thing I’m doing. No time like 5:30 AM to capture my true crabby essence.”

“Man. This DVD is going to be so great. #LWF #MAW #SDW #IWA #IWC #ROH #OVW #WWE.”

“Who owns the IWA footage?” –funniest thing I’ve heard all day.”

    I am a huge fan of C.M. Punk. I have been following his career since he made his debut on the wrestling scene. I have read a ton of magazine articles on him before I ever saw a wrestling match involving him on tv. I heard about his exploits in the IWA-Midsouth and Ring of Honor. I even saw him in the NWA-TNA as one of Raven’s lackeys for a little bit. But I still had not seen him wrestle.

    Then finally he debuted in WWE and I saw his first televised match in the WWECW show against Justin Credible. It was far better than I could have ever expected. All the magazine hype had truly done a good job of being honest about how gifted this kid is wrestling wise. And I can honestly say I have been fan ever since.

    I wanted to say all that before I got to my main point. I bought a C.M. Punk dvd a year or two after his debut in WWE. And discovered that in his early days, C.M. Punk came off very cocky, arrogant, and used a whole of swear words.

    I am not saying I have not heard wrestler cuss before, but he was the first wrestler I had ever seen during a match with Chris Hero to break one of the 10 commandments that said, “Though shall not say the Lord’s name in vain.” When I hear C.M. Punk say in the match with Hero….”Oh my f***ing God!” I just could not believe it. I was truly shocked and disappointed.

    I had always thought of C.M. Punk as a high-class type of wrestler before I had seen that. But now I know that he is capable of acting like street people who curse more than sailors.

    I am not mad at him, and I certainly don’t want him to change for me or anybody else. He can continue to be himself, after all the fans love the way he is, including me. It was just disappointing that I will never be able to hold him in the same regard as a class champion like Bruno Sammartino, Pedro Morales, and Ric Flair. He will forever be categorized with the anti-heroes of wrestling like Stone Cold Steve Austin & Randy Orton.

    But at least I can still hold him in high regard when it comes to be in great company with fellow ECW wrestlers. I think of him as an ECW original and I am confident that he would have been if the real ECW had survived past 2001. C.M. Punk admits himself that he is a Paul Heyman guy, to the chagrin of Vince McMahon.

    Anyway, the point I am making with my statement on this dvd matter. It will be good to see a new C.M. Punk dvd; but I hope this time I will not have to hear any curse words in it. That is the one blessing out of WWE made dvds. They take the cursing out now that they have left the WWE Attitude behind.

    Thanks for reading.

    Sincerely,

    Triple_P

    Wow Triple P … it’s called a gimmick. Did Stone Cold’s cursing cause this effect on you? Cuz he made an S LOAD of money for the WWE, no wonder the indy guys like CM Punk were following suit. And now people are comparing 2011-12 CM Punk to 96-97 Austin, it makes sense.

    Plus, if you didn’t notice … people curse. Sorry to break your bubble. Just because you don’t like it doesn’t mean it’s not going to happen. Freedom of speech. If you don’t like it, don’t buy it, turn it off.

    Punk is one of the best of the last decade. He is one of the few who made the indy scene relevant. Cursing doesn’t even matter.
