What are your thoughts of CM Punk winning the World Heavyweight Championship and bringing it to Raw? Mine is congrats Punk you deserve it now you have two World titles under your resume and a Money in the Bank to boot I hope you defend that title in a lot of high profile matches!

I'll get the pessimist in me out of the way first (sorry, after years of pro wrestling, you take the good and the bad and there's always plenty of both over the years), as some around the Net (not here so much, more on the wrestling sources I check) see this as like being the Rey World title run or even when Jericho unified the belts, that it will be a flat push, still some burying of Punk and mainly that the Cena factor still plays out as being overshadowing, while JBL will work to be #1 heel on RAW now with his political swing.

Well those pointed out I wouldn't be surprised if Punk's push is nowhere near say a HHH push or even Cena, Orton, Edge, etc. I will say maybe some in WWE are opening up that they need to FINALLY make new stars, not give away cash and not develop or push new guys. I hope to be right on this as you look at young champs now:
-CM Punk World Champ on RAW
-Kofi Kingston (who has his unique style and fanbase even if was stuck on ECW and RAW fans had no clue who he was, I see this NOT being like a Santino title rush) is IC Champ
-Ted Dibiase Jr. and COdy Rhodes are RAW tag champs
-MIckie James as Women's Champ
-Miz and Morrsion as Smackdown Tag champs

Right there are folks under 30 with titles. A good and really the proper move WWE used to do during the Monday night wars, even if it takes time and effort to make new stars. We fans get sick of the same old so I'm all for sometimes a change in the scene so with that awesome moment of PUNK WINS to pretty much pull a moderate RAW up, all hail CM Punk, ROH talent forever and GTS FTW!

I'm in agreement with whats been said so far.Hopefully this could mean a start of a new direction for RAW with new stars been produced.Only question i have is who will Punk feud with first for the title, JBL seems the only heel free at the moment unless we get a Cena or Batistia heel turn with in the next few weeks with Cena's being the lesser option because he's still over.Maybe CM Punk heel run is in the air woulf be intresting to see if the WWE goes with that but for now lets all rejoice and celebrate the era of Punk

All i can say is finally after Edge had cashed in on the money in the bank against weakened opponents all the time someone decided to cash in on him at his weakest point, i have been a fan of CM Punk both as a wrestler and a professional (although i would still love it if WWE allowed him to use the Pepsi plunge once in a while) so i am over the moon to know that RAW is straightedge LONG LIVE THE ERA OF PUNK

LOL! CM PINK? Hail CM PUNK! You rox hard mann! he deserves to get the title!

It was great to see CM Punk win in a way that Edge cashed it in, against weakend opponets. It's also great that the WWE is pushing the superstars that are at the Mid-Card section of the Roster. I mean, look at the Champions right now. (Look at trigunkwan's post) CM Punk's era as a Champion will last a long time in my Opinon.
