CM Punk Crashes WWE Panel At San Diego Comic-Con, Confronts Triple H

CM Punk crashed the joint Mattel/WWE panel—WWE: Past, Present and Future—this afternoon at the San Diego Comic-Con, featuring Triple H, Rey Mysterio and WWE Hall of Famer Bret Hart.

Punk announced himself via bullhorn and then, with the WWE Championship in hand, sauntered to the designated question-asking microphone and began to speak. The Straight Edge Superstar took exception to WWE attempting to crown a new champion on Raw and then challenged Mysterio, or anyone else who wanted to be champ, to head out to Chicago to take him on.

Punk then asked Triple H and creative writer Brian Gewirtz why Zack Ryder wasn’t on television. Triple H, in what appeared to be a kayfabe response, told Punk that things had changed on Raw and there was a new regime. He told Punk to give him a call. Punk responded by telling Hunter that he was certain Stephanie had his phone number.

    HHH/Punk would be great but what about the title? When Punk “returns” he should face the WWE champ to crown a true champ. Kinda like what they did with the IC title back in the 80’s.

    I would love to see Taker finish his career absolutely dominating whoever he faces at Wrestlemania. I dont mean a 30 second squash match. I like christian, always have, but I think he would be perfect to take punishment from Taker for 10 mins, keep getting up, and then Taker finishes him easily for his last match.

  • rko

    Punk vs H3=the new Stone Cold vs McMahon feud from the attitude era.

  • Monte


    I also didn’t consider Christian as Taker’s opponent. That’s an interesting thought. I mean, Taker battled Edge at WM, so why not Christian? The question is, can they build up Christian enough to make it look like he has a legitimate chance at not only facing Taker at WM, but stopping the streak?

    But what I think will happen there is that Taker wins, goes 20-0, and comes out on Raw the next night as himself (not as Taker) and basically does like Shawn Michaels does, to make it official.

    But as far as Punk/HHH, I think if they build it right, and put together the right match, it’ll be great.

  • Monte


    It would probably be a good match. It could be a good way for HHH to “retire” from the ring. Make the stakes kind of high. It will be interesting to see what type of match they come up with.

    Although for a match like that it would probably be a good idea for one of them (probably Triple H) to be a monster heel, and the other to be a very over face.

    get rid of smackdown!!!

    CM Punk vs HHH would be good for Wrestlemania. If Taker comes back, he can face Christian or Sheamus.

  • Monte

    This does seem to be an interesting storyline. Although I haven’t watched WWE programming in years (I usually keep track on this site) because I have a young child.

    But if this is a buildup between Punk and HHH for WrestleMania next year, then this means that obviously we wouldn’t have Taker vs. Triple H 3 at WM, right?

    So, in light of this, if it is a buildup to WM, who’s Taker gonna face?

    It’s going to be interesting to see how they build up this Punk/HHH feud and the storyline over the next X amount of time (I’m assuming until WrestleMania).

  • JIR

    I will enjoy watching Punk to his thing away from the WWE shows were he doesn’t have to hold back

  • K Roy

    they wont show this on raw for anyone wanting or expecting that to happen. it doesnt make sense to and if you think they will you are not grasping what they are doing with this angle, its supposed to be “real” therefor why would they promote him crashing their panel with their title if it was real? the more they ignore him on tv the better it gets…

    Joey Styles tweeted a footage of this epic ‘promo’

  • Mordecai

    If you have WWEgames (THQ) on your facebook, they also posted the video up on their page from youtube as well.

  • cm punk mark

  • Maestro

    Punk has just hit legendary status! He is the new Stone Cold.

  • Center

    CM Punk is the New Money. This storyline is pretty entertaining.

  • Patrick

    that was f’ing hilarious!

  • Logan

    Long live CM Punk

  • Devil_Rising

    HHH isn’t really wrestling anymore. He’s “The Boss” now…..kinda.

  • mark

    lol now this is funny

  • moles1

    there just setting up hhv cm punk for summerslam or mania

  • William Regal, Born Naughty

    @ Visonary Journalist, Where was it stated that CM Punk signed a six month extension?

  • Stumpy

    Just saw the vid. I like the way they made it look spontaneous like it wasn’t expected. This is definitely going in the right direction as long as they don’t screw it up. It’s sad how we all automatically assume that the Big E will indeed screw it up. Probably because the normally do.

  • CM Mark

    Punk is always gold…

  • Visonary Journalist

    I hope some people still dont think hes “fired” because he signed a six month extension. So expect to see Punk a lot more.

  • Long Rod Von HugenDong

    Guys W-E doesn’t allow to post links, but check Joey Styles tweeter, the video is there

  • CC

    @Visonary Journalist.
    The reason they wont do that is that its not a comedy skit like the Austin/Booker feud, and thankfully so.
    This way is much more original as its creating more buzz about the company, and has people not knowing if this is real or not.

    Not really sure the time Invasion took place really classifies as the attitude era either.

  • Long Rod Von HugenDong

    For those wondering, here is the video of the whole situation

  • TheMark

    Sounds great. Hopefully the video gets online.

  • Bill

    Guys, it’s on YT already. I just saw it, & it’s pretty hilarious.

  • Nicholas G

    Watch CM Punk to show up on Raw this Monday night.

  • Stumpy

    Hopefully the cameras were rolling to tape this little “conversation” so they can play it back on Raw at least. I really like how they are delivering this storyline outside of the two shows to make it appear “real”.

  • rko

    I hope this got taped and airs on Raw.

  • punk mark
  • Visonary Journalist

    …And Cut out Mysterio To make it seem like he wasnt there.

  • Jimbo

    This is the best storyline in wrestling in the last 7-8 years.

  • Bill

    This would’ve been good as something to show on Smackdown, since it’s pre-taped.

  • Nate

    I’m starting to really love this fucking guy.

  • Visonary Journalist

    Why Couldnt they do What Austin N Booker did in the attitude era when they fought at the supermarket and do this live at raw. This would have been a great segment to tape but raw is live not tape. And it wont have the same feeling if they tape it and not have them commentate the live reaction to it. Unless they pretend its live.

  • CC

    I pissed myself laughing when I read that last sentence.

  • Jake

    Looks like wwe is really breaking the mold with this storyline, and I think they hired some of LOST’s pr people cause they always used to this stuff cant wait for what’s next
