CM Punk is the best thing in wrestling right now.

So a couple of weeks ago CM Punk beat Jeff Hardy in a “Loser Leaves WWE” match.  The kids were heartbroken.  I’m actually disapointed he’s leaving as well.  He has matured greatly in the last year or so and has had some GREAT matches, but he needs some time off and I certainly don’t blame the guy for it.

I do most [heck, all!] of my blogging at work.  I started writing this blog on Thursday, September 10th, but work has been so busy that I stopped exactly at that spot above and haven’t had a chance to continue it until now.  So – Thursday I am writing about how much he has matured in the past year…and Friday he gets arrested for steroids – BUNCHES of steroids, painkiller and cocaine possession.  The guy has a massive legal battle and very possibly jail time ahead of him.  This blog wasn’t really going to be about him, however, so I’ll continue more or less in the spirit I started in.                         – – – – – continuing

CM Punk came into WWE as a good guy.  In real life he lives a drug free lifestyle.  No drinking, no drugs.  His “Straight Edge” lifestyle had been briefly brought up in interviews but he didn’t really harp on it that much.  In the past few months they decided to turn him into a bad guy.  They did this by having him preach to us fans about our “hedonistic” and “drug hazed” lives.  Now with me not being a drug guy I loved it, but even if it wasn’t about drugs I would have thought he was awesome.  He has transistioned into a very memorable and confident bad guy.  The feud with Jeff Hardy was inevitable, as Jeff (in real life) has had two strikes against him with the WWE Wellness Policy, which has been widely thought to be (but never officially acknowledged) for recreational drug use.  Punk REALLY dug into Jeff over the last couple of months and it was highly entertaining.

Anyway, CM Punk beats Jeff Hardy in a “Loser Leaves WWE” match one Friday on Smackdown.  The following Friday, however, the show starts with Jeff Hardy’s music and his video on the big screens!  Has Jeff shown up regardless of his loss?

When Punk came out, he looked so similar that it fooled a lot of the crowd.  He did the little dance  and hand gestures that Jeff would do when he came out.  ABSOLUTELY HILARIOUS.  He even kept it up as he got in the ring and went to the corners and did Jeff’s pose, then walked around clapping as Hardy would do.  A lot of the young kids in the crowd went CRAZY!

"I can't believe he's going to be here!!"  One of the kids is wearing Jeff's armbands.

But then…and this is where I start my path to hell…those kids realize it’s not him and EXTREME disappointment builds.

This poor kid realizes that it isn't Jeff Hardy in the ring, but rather his nemesis CM Punk.

This picture is too brilliant for words.  Suffice to say, the kid is none too pleased with Mr. Punk.

So, Punk is the Champ on Smackdown.  Here’s to a long reign for the man.  Hopefully he can last and headline Wrestlemania!

Since I’m talking wresting, here are some other random thoughts..

* Coming in as the SECOND best thing in wrestling right now is Chris Jericho.  I don’t know if there has ever been anybody as CONSISTENTLY awesome as this guy.

* I get a kick out of the way that Ted Dibiase (jr.) does his fist drops just like his father, The Million Dollar Man (more Like Father Like Son!).
