Defending WWE Champion CM Punk’s promo when he said he could beat Hogan

Last night on Monday Night RAW, during reigning WWE Champion, CM Punk’s promo near the end of the show, Punk  once again said he could beat Hulk Hogan.       – – –  While that may  sound  a bit cocky, or even little absurd,   Punk would later  shine some reasoning to his explanation.     He  brought up facts.   Facts like he  “wrestles in much more physical matches” than Hogan ever did, like TLC matches, Steel-Cage matches, Hell In A Cell matches, Ladder matches, and the list goes on and on here.       And not just that, but the fact he does this quite often.

Once Punk mentioned that, it really colored a picture in my mind.   I couldn’t imagine how Hogan would fair in a TLC match, as he’d be a new cumber to that match.      Much unlike the straight-edge savior, who has competed in these match-types numerous-times,  now to clear it up:  I’m not in any shape, way, or form  trying to diss-credit Hulkamania as his career achievements stand sky-high, way up high.     Hogan is an inventor, shaper, if you will  for Pro Wrestling.   If not for  him, Professional wrestling may not be near as popular as it is today.       The Golden Era, which Hogan was apart of in the 1980’s was a crucial time  for  the company, though some would argue the Attitude Era was bigger; it doesn’t change the history and the turning points the Golden Era created.      – – – CM PunkThe bottom line here is simply the fact that these are two completely different wrestling “superstars” in two completely different era’s.      What Hogan did can’t just be ignored; what CM Punk has done in his 415 days and counting reign as WWE Champion is more than remarkable, and deserves some respect, he’s earned it, no doubt about it.
