Brock Lesnar Attacks CM Punk On WWE RAW

Coming off the heels of what are some calling the best pay per view in years, the WWE delivered an equally compelling Monday Night RAW. The show was capped off with a memorable segment featuring Brock Lesnar and CM Punk.

Brock Lesnar returned to WWE television for the first time since defeating Triple H at Extreme Rules. What made this one so good is that nobody expected it and the return was one of those rare WWE surprises that are so hard to come by in this day and age of newsletters and Internet leaks. The angle kicked off the expected summer feud between Lesnar and Punk.

Punk is now a babyface, something he made clear when he opened up RAW by confronting new WWE world heavyweight champion Alberto Del Rio. Punk challenged Del Rio to a match and subsequently told Paul Heyman he no longer needed him, the same message he conveyed at Payback. Punk told Heyman once again that while Brock and Curtis Axel need Heyman, he doesn’t, and politely asked Paul to stay out of his business.

Punk wrestled Del Rio later in the final RAW match. After the match Punk was alone in the ring when Brock’s music hit. The place went nuts, like every other crowd that has heard Brock’s music. Brock came down to the ring, circled, grabbed a microphone, and got in Punk’s face. Brock then threw down the mic and F5’d Punk to close out the show in one of the more memorable segments on RAW this year.

It would appear that the rumored Punk vs. Lesnar SummerSlam match will now take place at Money in the Bank. I liked the angle but I think that they missed an opportunity for a slow turn. It just seems odd that Punk basically took his ball and went home and after less than a year of being the number one heel is all of the sudden a babyface. I would have liked to see them do a deal where Heyman keeps interfering in Punk’s business and Punk slowly gets angrier culminating with Heyman’s interference costing Punk a big match at MITB, Punk going off on Heyman the next night on RAW, and then Brock doing exactly what he did to Punk.

That said it will be really interesting to see where this one goes. Neither go should lose the match but someone has to lose. The big money is in Brock at WrestleMania 30 not Punk which tells me that Punk is going down. On the other hand a loss right after a big babyface turn isn’t exactly the best way to keep Punk hot either. Maybe they split and leave a third match open for WrestleMania depending upon what The Rock decides to do?

Either way it’s always fun to see Brock back so enjoy the F5!
