PUNK vs. BRYAN for the WWE Title at WWE Over The Limit

Indeed, on Sunday May 20th, Christmas will be coming early this year.

To the involved and dedicated wrestling fans, or “smart marks” (a.k.a. “smarks”),we felt that a championship match between CM Punk and Daniel Bryan (or “The American Dragon” Bryan Danielson) was destined to happen; it would just be a matter of time. Both wrestlers had made names for themselves on the hard-knock independent wrestling circuit (including stints in Ring of Honor) all over the world.  Punk and Bryan both have old-school wrestling backgrounds and styles, making them among the purest of athletes and finest technicians in the business (something that not as common nowadays). Both of their world title reigns were possibly the most dominant and popular in late-2011 to early-2012. Finally, in three short weeks at WWE Over the Limit, they will both meet again, but this time a world title will be on the line.

I’m set for this match to be an excellent watch, since the last few times Punk and Bryan have met in the ring, each match was very memorable to say the least.  The two wrestled in several “Champion vs. Champion”  matches earlier this year, when Bryan still held the World Heavyweight Title, however, their paths have crossed various times over the last 10 years in several independent promotions.  Bryan’s drive to get back into the world title picture (after losing the World Heavyweight Championship to Sheamus at WrestleMania 28 and the rematch at Extreme Rules) carried him through a Beat the Clock Challenge on last night’s episode of RAW, when he beat times set by Randy Orton and The Miz to become the number one contender, earning him the right to challenge for Punk’s championship.

I remember watching Bryan as “The American Dragon” Bryan Danielson back in 2000 when he wrestled for the San Antonio-based Texas Wrestling Alliance (TWA), formally owned and operated by WWE Hall-of-Famer Shawn Michaels.  After continuing to follow him through TWA to ROH, and now WWE, I enjoyed watching him rise to these great heights in the business.  Now, with Bryan’s new-found confidence and CM Punk’s continuing momentum from last summer to now, I’m very excited to see this match, how it’s going to play out, and what else WWE has in store.

Good job, WWE.  Two Thumbs Up!

  1. It should be a fantastic match. I didn’t watch them in ROH, but they are two of the best workers in the business and the matches they have had against each other in WWE have been great. This should be a very good program even with the 3-week build. I’m even more excited since the match is taking place in NC!!!! Hopefully it can develop into a longer feud and they will fight at the June PPV too!

  2. Today, I went to the beach front with my kids.
    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
    LoL I know this is totally off topic but I
    had to tell someone!
