Do we think there is any chance that CM Punk will keep his title on Monday? I personally can't see it.

i don't know.. if anyone's going to be the first guy ever to lose MITB then my vote would be on Cena as it's clear he doesn't need the title to be involved to be the main event man, but what with The Rock tweeting again about wanting to win the WWE championship, it would set it up nicely if Cena won the title as they could have a match for the title later in the year (Summerslam probably a bit close, but i wouldn't bet against it)

Very true when you consider that Cena has been in every Main Event match this year (ok, the Rumble had 29 other guys in it but it was still the main event of the PPV).

Sorry Punk? Your the WWE Champ or something?? Didn't see you there because WWE have put you in Cena's shadow....

the Bleacher Report are always saying how Punk isn't over with the fans so the WWE have to rely on Cena, but to me Punk seems far more over than Cena is, with the added bonus that he can also wrestle.

I've read a few reports that say he won't. They always say that those who win the MITB, always win the title after cashing in the contract. So for Cena to lose, as he's the one that is basically expected to win, would be huge. To have him lose clean would be nice but it's possible that The Rock or Big Show will interfere, costing him the win.

Cena is so over that he could lose the match clean and it wouldn't hurt his character but WWE being WWE they'll want to protect him and if he does lose, it'll be with interference.

Or, if they really want to mix things up and it being the 1000th show, Punk can turn heel and use a heelish move to keep the belt (use Cena's briefcase to knock him out whilst the ref's down or something).

To me it looks like Cena is more over with Kids and CM Punk with adults.

Raw 1000 was good, loads of attitude era stars making an appearance, and some other great returns. WWE finally legitimizing the IC title and a very eventful main event match!

Good show.


Edit: Seems like there was a good reason for that:

Ha. I did laugh at The Undertaker at one point during his intro:


Also, Stephanie McMahon:

Yeah, i've wanted Stephanie to come back to the WWE for a long time but the most we get are the odd skit with her and HHH in the family home every now and again, so it was a welcome surprise for her to turn up. It'd be nice if she stuck around but i don't think she will.

The thing with the Underaker made me laugh too. It's always funny when a wrestler has a wardrobe malfunction

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lp3wr8l2o

also, can't remember who it was but the other week in WWE i remember noticing that after someone got thrown out of the ring, their trunks had split open at the back

Haven't there been an unusually large number of face/heel turns for main eventers lately?

Kane, Jericho, Christian and CM Punk (perhaps) have all switched in the past few weeks and Big Show a couple of months ago

I wonder if the amount of face turns is designed to allow career heels like The Miz and Ziggler back into the main event picture..

Ziggler may "put him out of action" as a part of the current Ziggler push

RAW was pretty average again.

so it turns out he's not leaving quite yet, at least one more match from him, at Summerslam, but i expect he's off after that.

Did anyone else think that when looked at from the all-black side, Rey looked like he was wearing a gimp outfit on Smackdown?
