Backstage News on Orton, Cena Calls CM Punk Lucky, Punk Responds

– WWE’s website spoke with John Cena after failing to capture the WWE Title at SummerSlam. Cena was asked if CM Punk is the best in the world. Cena called Punk luck and said he will try to get him on RAW.

– Punk wrote the following on Twitter in response to Cena saying he got lucky with the SummerSlam win:

“I Love @JohnCena saying I got lucky. It’s not luck, it’s skill. With the odds against me, I won. Not once, but twice. Gotta #respect that.”

– At one point, there was talk of putting Randy Orton into the Sheamus vs. Alberto Del Rio match at SummerSlam but the idea was nixed. The feeling was that they didn’t need to beef up the World Heavyweight Title match because it wasn’t a main part of the show. Orton will likely be taking a bit of time off in less than 1 month to begin filming 12 Rounds: Reloaded.

    Wow, so bring Orton back for 1 month, just to have him leave again??? They should have him come back after the filming of 12 Rounds to a push.

    I was expecting punk to say “Luck’s for losers.”

    cena has a nerve to call punk ‘lucky’ least CM punk is a true champion and knows how to wrestle.. unlike cena who gets everything given to him and knows no more than 5 wrestling moves..

    Does rather suck that he’s only back for 6 weeks though. Probably explains why they didn’t bother with a heel turn yet.

  • Dave

    I guess 12 Rounds: Reloaded is his consolation prize since he had to be dropped from The Marine 3.

    Well WWE and Heavyweight titles looked unimportant to me by not having them main event
