Backstage News on Why WWE Opened RAW with Paul Heyman, Was CM Punk Ever Planned?

– CM Punk was not at last night’s RAW and was not in the script that they went to air with. One person in WWE creative said on Friday that Punk wasn’t even discussed but didn’t rule out a surprise return. Most people within WWE didn’t know Punk would not be appearing for sure until Monday afternoon.

There was never a script written that included Punk in any way, beyond the few mentions that were made. There were going to be other mentions, by who we don’t know, but those were nixed from the script.

Last night’s RAW opened the way it did because WWE officials felt that if they ignored the Punk situation, the chants would become more powerful as the show went on. The feeling was that if they addressed it at the start of the show, the crowd would settle down some.

    I didn’t know you were psychic. I don’t give WWE ANY of my money, FYI. And a lot of people are doing the same.

    Yeah the matches are so boring and yet you still watch Raw.

  • Terry 3bo

    the crowd continued go crazy, despite their best efforts. Every boring match you put, people will chant CM Punk or anyone else.

    So, CM Punk the new “face of the WWE” sometime if he does come back? Maybe save Triple H from embarrassment from losing to DB at WM 30, thus having the opportunity to be champ given to him? I’d laugh, but I hope not. “Oh!!!! You like Daniel Bryan huh? Take dat!!!!! CM PUNK!!! CM PUNK!!!”
