TIME FOR WWE TO GET PUNK'D

CM Punk is one of the hottest names in wrestling that isn't on WWE or TNA television. A majority of Ring of Honor fans feel the man can simply do no wrong. WWE on the other hand doesn't quite see him in that light. Regardless of what they think, Punk could be the man to save the company. This column will take a look at how to debut him in a way that will make the fans care and give WWE a new face it has desperately needed for some time.

Without changing his true to life gimmick of being straight edge, WWE could debut him in a way that will get the fans talking. It could be announced that Stone Cold Steve Austin, known to dabble in the art of beer-drinking, is returning to television. When he shows up, he can do a basic Stone Cold promo about raising hell and throwing back some beers. The next week, Austin can again come to the ring, and as he's ready to crack open a few Steveweisers, the debuting CM Punk could hit the ring and throttle him. Punk laying out a legend like Austin would open up the eyes of the fans.

Punk could lay into Austin about his disgusting habits, and how Punk is straight edge, and better than you. A hot feud would ensue, with Punk obviously getting the upper hand throughout. Austin would have to keep his ego out of the way and let Punk establish himself as a rising star and the future of the business. It wouldn't be like a debuting Gene Snitsky taking it to Kane. You would have a future main eventer in Punk, a stud in the ring, and arguably one of the better talkers out there.

Punk could target another superstar who goes against his straight edge ways. Edge and Lita have forced the crowd into watching them undress and have live sex in the middle of the ring, and Punk could take offense to that. No promiscuous sex is one of the rules of being straightedge, so Edge could either boast about it, and take offense to the "straighEdge" gimmick being a ripoff of his own name. This could be a longer feud than that of Austin/Punk simply because Edge is a regular performer. The promos during this time would be off the charts, with both men's talents being completely displayed. Punk and Edge have similar cocky charismatic traits, so they would certainly play off each other well.

With rumors of stars like Vince McMahon, Shawn Michaels, and Triple H being not so high on Punk, he could target one or all of them upon his debut. He could rip into McMahon himself, which clearly would show him off as being a star who people should take notice of. The matches that HBK and Triple H could have with Punk would be outstanding.

Punk could tell it how it is, saying they're scared he's going to take their spots, and that they should be. The possibilities are endless for how Punk could debut in a meaningful. Let's hope WWE finds the perfect way to do it.
