So it seems like the clear cut plan right now is Punk v.s. Darby Allin. How is this going to work out though? Is Punk really going to come in after a 7 year absence and immediately start putting over a younger talent? The last we saw him, his UFC fight was so atrociously bad he actually holds a UFC record. As far as I know, there's never been in a instance in UFC history where the winner and loser of the fight both got fired. Punk lost to someone who competed part-time in MMA and THAT guy got fired for not beating a horrible fighter fast enough.
So now Punk, who obviously controls his fate with a scripted match, is going to come right back and lose to a guy who weighs 150 pounds? Or do you think he's now in Jericho territory and doesn't care as long as the fat check cashes? I mean Jericho has always had the most self-awareness of anyone in the history of the business. However, that doesn't seem to be the case so much anymore to agree to do the death match last week.
Who am I kidding? If I could get millions to have a completely untalented, scumbag meth addict take a pizza slicer to my head on national television, I'd do it in a second. Shiny new red Lamborghini…thanks Papa Khan for giving Tony his inheritance early!
I know people are going to freak, but I think Punk should go over Darby if that's the first program, because the money is going to be in Punk challenging Omega for the title and then putting HIM over. The bigger they can make Omega, the bigger that it'll make Hangman when they finally get around to changing the title.
