More on Why Punk Was Kept Off RAW, JR Comments on Cole, Big E

Posted by Matt Boone April 10, 2013 3 Comments

- Jim Ross gave props to Michael Cole via Twitter:

“Most don’t realize how valuable @MichaelCole is to #wwe. Helps produce @JerryLawler & keeps Texan @JCLayfield in line. Full time #Raw trio?”

– Big E Langston will debut his own theme song on tonight’s episode of WWE Main Event as he faces Zack Ryder.

– As noted before, CM Punk was kept off Monday’s RAW to sell The Undertaker’s win at WrestleMania 29. Another reason WWE officials kept him off RAW is because they didn’t want him to receive a massive pop from the post-WrestleMania crowd that was at Monday’s show. At one point, there were plans for Punk to come out and cut a promo but they nixed it.

      What would be wrong with Punk getting a major pop? That was a great match. He deserves the pop as much as Taker does.

      That’s the one thing about WWE that makes me upset. Why do they want to control who the fans want and don’t want to cheer for?

        Because they don’t want to lose control of their show. I think we all know Vince isn’t happy unless everyone’s praisng Lord Cena. It makes no sense at all to me. As I said before, Punk deserves that pop. I read though, that they didn’t want him to get a Face reaction.
