The Brock Lesnar – CM Punk Feud

First off, I’m a Paul Heyman guy, and have been since 1999.

We have two Paul Heyman guys going at it this summer in the WWE.  Brock Lesnar got the best of CM Punk on RAW a few weeks ago when he came out to F-5 Punk to close the show, setting up a summer where we will see a battle like no other, the Battle of Heyman’s boys.

First off, let’s talk about what Brock Lesnar has done in the WWE & UFC.  The first time I saw Brock Lesnar I knew the guy was a star. Only 3 months into his WWE career he won the King of the Ring at the June 2002 ppv.  A couple of months later he won the WWE Championship from the Rock at Summerslam 2002.   Lesnar is a former three-time WWE Champion and became the youngest champion with his first reign. He won the Royal Rumble 2003 and had some epic match-up’s with Kurt Angle in his time in the WWE.

After leaving WWE, Lesnar pursued a career in the NFL. He played during the preseason for the Minnesota Vikings, but ended up being a late cut.  He returned to professional wrestling at the end of 2005, and joined New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW), where he won the IWGP Heavyweight Championship in his first match. Lesnar started a career in MMA and won his first fight in June 2007. He then signed with the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) in October 2007. He lost his UFC debut against Frank Mir, but defeated Heath Herring in his sophomore fight. He subsequently captured the UFC Heavyweight Championship from Randy Couture on November 15, 2008, then avenged his loss to Mir at UFC 100 to become the undisputed champion. After being sidelined from fighting in late 2009 due to diverticulitis, Lesnar returned to defeat the interim UFC Heavyweight Champion Shane Carwin at UFC 116.  Lesnar lost the heavyweight belt, however, against Cain Velasquez at UFC 121. He was once again stricken with a bout of diverticulitis in May 2011 and had surgery to try to cope with the ailment.  Lesnar returned at UFC 141 in December 2011, where he lost to Alistair Overeem and promptly retired from the UFC.  In April 2012, Brock Lesnar returned to the WWE to F5 John Cena to close Monday Night RAW after Wrestlemania 28.   He has been back ever since feuding with Triple H, Cena, and now is in a program with CM Punk.

Let’s now talk the best In the world now, CM Punk.

Punk is a seven-time World Champion, having held the ROH World Championship and ECW Championship once each, WWE’s World Heavyweight Championship three times, and the WWE Championship twice. Punk has also won the World Tag Team Championship (with Kofi Kingston) and the WWE Intercontinental Championship, making him the 19th WWE Triple Crown Champion. He was also the winner of the 2008 and 2009 Money in the Bank ladder matches, the only wrestler to win the match twice in a row, and was the 2011 Superstar of the Year Slammy Award winner.

Punk signed a contract with WWE and was sent to its developmental promotion, Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW), where he won every championship available in the promotion. for a short time in 2002 and 2003, Punk did work for TNA Total Nonstop Action Wrestling.  At Royal Rumble 2013, Vince McMahon began to announce that Punk would be stripped of the title, but he instead restarted the match at the Rock’s request and Punk immediately lost the WWE Championship to The Rock, ending his record-setting reign at 434 days.

So everyone, get ready this summer for an epic feud and match when CM Punk vs Brock Lesnar takes place.
