CM Punk Loses the ECW World Title! Could Another Trophy Be Around the Corner?
This past Tuesday night, CM Punk lost the ECW World Championship to Chavo Guerrero in a very good match which saw interference from Edge. Chavo and Punk have been feuding now for a good month, and this was their 4th match in a row. Each week Guerrero was inching closer and closer to beating Punk, but last night he finally won his first World Championship. I am excited for Chavo Guerrero because he will bring excellence and the Guerrero prestige to the championship.
Where does CM Punk go after this loss? I think if CM Punk finds a way into the Royal Rumble, this could be a great opportunity for him to win the Royal Rumble and then go on to face Edge at WrestleMania to avenge his loss. I still think we will see a rematch or two with Chavo Guerrero, but my .02 cents is that Chavo holds on to the title for a few months. Punk held the Championship for 4.5 months, much longer than many thought he was going to hold on to the title.
This is a perfect opportunity for CM Punk to win the Royal Rumble and feud with Edge going into WrestleMania. Instead of getting back his ECW World Championship, Punk would be going after the World Heavyweight Championship and trying to get revenge on Edge for costing him the ECW Championship. Edge vs. CM Punk has potential to be off the charts and can bring up viewership on Smackdown due to an interesting angle playing out due to the cross brand trade of talent.
There is my prediction for the Royal Rumble. If CM Punk is entered as one of the participants, I wouldn’t be surprised to see him win the Royal Rumble.
