"Here is the truth about the WWE is that it doesn’t matter that if you’re the best wrestler, it doesn’t matter if you’re the best talker, it doesn’t matter if you’re the best overall performer, it doesn’t matter if you make the two clowns sitting to my left on commentary look like amateur hour. There is a glass ceiling and nobody is allowed to break it. That’s the simple story of this place."

Fan Who Was Ejected From RAW For His Signs Speaks Out | SEScoops

We need to discuss this shit.

I am so sick of wrestling fans.

Now I hate to generalize like that because some of the best people in the world are wrestling fans - some of my best friends are wrestling fans - some of the smartest people I know are wrestling fans.

But this shit is getting to be insufferable. I am so sick of nose-in-the-air, “know it all” fans who think they’re too cool for school. Know it all is in quotation marks because, of course, they don’t know shit.

I’m of course talking about the types who think they’re doing us all a favour by chanting CM Punk at shows, as though it will have any effect on him coming back. The type too stubborn to realize that CM Punk bailed on them. He wasn’t taken from them; he bailed on them. He chose to leave, and they don’t know how to deal.

The guy who wrote this thinks he’s God’s gift to wrestling fans, and after all his douchebaggery at the show (“As I had my back turned I held up my Rousey sign that said, Ronda Rousey Would Make Super Cena Tap Out And Bleed”) he complains about being kicked out and robbed of the money he paid to get in.

"I said so you’re telling me i wasted $111 on a ticket and I’m cant watch 2 hours of the show."

Guess what asshole? You PAID that money and then made the CONSCIOUS DECISION to DELIBERATELY rile up the performers and organisation who essentially owned the venue on that night. You got what you fucking deserve.

Wrestling fans need to get a grip on reality and ditch their sense of entitlement.

You know what’ll woo CM Punk back to the biz? A reminder that some weirdo is always photographing you, in secret, when you’re at the airport.

WWE has made several changes in response to the CM Punk story. They’ve removed him from several posters and events, they’ve made changes in the WWE Shop, they excluded him from a ROH article, they’ve even removed him from the video that plays before each show. This particular change is one that I find most disturbing. CM Punk’s legendary pipebomb edited.

Please don’t add any comments to this post. Just let everyone see for themselves.

Mother of God.

Brothers living in intense denial, telling themselves the Punk thing is a work.
