Justin Credible Weighs-In on Current CM Punk Story Line

Former ECW Champion Justin Credible has published a new column at PWMania.com. Credible talks about about Monday's WWE Raw. Triple H, CM Punk, among other topics. Former WWE Diva Maria Kanellis is this week's special guest on Justin Credible's Pro Wrestling 101 video series. Here is an excerpt from his  article:

"I like how they addressed the whole Shield thing in the beginning of the show. I just wish HHH wasn’t in every single segment. I know they are trying to establish him as the heel COO, but it’s a bit too much of a good thing for this viewer. I do however like how the storylines are intertwined.

What a great ovation for Punk. It’s got to be awesome to be CM Punk in front of the Chicago crowd. Of course who else, but Paul Heyman would ruin the mood. There exchanges are still entertaining. I like that Heyman is now “The Best in The World”. The WWE delivered on Punk getting to Heyman, with a twist, I just wish it wasn’t with Ryback. I just think that Ryback will never really get over the Goldberg thing."
