How CM Punk Almost Dropped the WWE Title, Backstage Talk on Layla

Posted by Matt Boone May 22, 2012 4 Comments

- CM Punk retrained the WWE Championship at Sunday’s Over The Limit pay-per-view in a match with Daniel Bryan that was far and away the best on the show. Punk’s title reign continues – but WWE officials almost decided to put the title on Daniel Bryan.

The topic of Bryan winning the WWE Title was being discussed a lot over the past few weeks. Apparently the talks got “pretty serious” but the decision was made in the past week to have Punk retain.

– There was a lot of talk backstage at WWE’s Over the Limit pay-per-view about the quality of the Divas Title match with Layla and Beth Phoenix. The feeling was that Layla’s performance was a sign that her knee isn’t 100%.

      Really? The quality of a divas match? I just gotta say this, people are stupid if they wanna even discuss a “diva” match, but what else to talk about since the women’s division is long dead?

      The divas match at over the limit was pretty good… for a divas match.

      Wait… they actually discuss the Diva’s division? You mean matches are not just randomly thrown together the day of the PPV to fill some space and allow guys to take a piss / food break???? No way!!!
