Punk Comments on Linda & WWE’s PG Era, Bad WWE-UK Ticket News, Barrett Picks Match

– It should be noted that a lot of the advances for WWE’s current UK tour have been the lowest since anyone can remember. The Wrestling Observer reports that there are seven arenas that are considered “sister” arenas booked for this week and not one is sold out. Some are only about half-way sold out. Some tickets prices are being slashed for the rest of the tour.

– The WWE Classics “Five-Star Match of the Week” for this week was chosen by Wade Barrett. He picked Bret Hart vs. British Bulldog from SummerSlam 92. Barrett commented:

“[The Bulldog] was from just down the road from me, near Wigan. I’m from Preston, very close. He was my idol as a kid, so this was a great moment and great to have a pay-per-view like SummerSlam in the U.K. I hope we get that again one day.”

– WWE Champion CM Punk told fans on Twitter to stop talking about Linda McMahon’s failed Senate bid as it relates to the WWE PG era. Punk tweeted:

“Enough about the PG era and Linda. Nothing to do with one another. Stop living in the last. Eyes front, one foot in front of the other…”

    CM Punk behaving like the asshole that he is, yet AGAIN. Sometimes I wonder why anyone would even think of following that sewer rat on Twitter. He is a disgusting pile of shit.

  • FacePuncher

    Much like you are Lisa

  • havok

    lisa you hate punk so much, yet you will click on every link that has his name on it…..you live a sad existence

    Punk is 99% right. The last 1% is because he typed “last” instead of “past,” but that’s nitpicking.

    He’s right, ask anyone who used to work there, listen to Carlito or MVP interview, especially Jericho’s, the PG era was to clear them from the Overworked Steroid infused animals label, Benoit tragedy, deaths due to performance enhancing overdosing (R.I.P Umaga, Test, Eddie, Cade).

    Yes it seemed sissy but they had to clean up the act because for all we know Pro Wrestling could’ve been banned for prime time tv let alone tv in general.

    Yes being ignorant and ignoring the past was selfish but with an incident like the Benoit one, even if you still acknowledge, do you really want that to be the reason why you remember the year 2007? Is that the first thing you want when you think of the business?

    So they had to ditch the Hardcore fans by doing things they know they would hate, become corny and appeal to kids because that was the only way to broaden the market without becoming even more extreme, they had to go back to go forward, restore the Family sit in front of the TV feel to the product but even then they still had the dark cloud of about 10 deaths in 4 years.

    Plus it didn’t help with the media blaming every death from main eventer to enhancement talent to a guy who worked on dark match on WWE, more or less any death in pro wrestling has been associated to WWE, even suicides and It’s sad that the business is so tough that people get so stressed they take there only lives but is it fair that the media blame on company for it?

    No, they took the pussy way out but in doing that they brought the wellness policy with that and if it weren’t for that Scott Hall let alone various other guy who’ve of worked there might be dead.

    Sadly it was a blessing in disguise.

    More or less the new attitude of WWE has helped save their reputation and the outlook or mainstream wrestling but the way it came about and what it took for the wellness policy to be introduced is the bullet to the knee cap.

    Sadly it was a blessing in disguise.

    @havok- I love it when people say this and then do the exact same thing on all John Cena posts and then act like they aren’t doing the same thing
