In Punk We Trust

Anyone who knows me knows that I’ve been a WWE fan for sometime.  To me, it almost seems like the world of professional wrestling is its own self-contained entity.  People who love it often completely surround their life with it, and people who don’t are quick to forget that it even exists.

It’s for that reason that wrestling becomes that much more interesting when it crosses over into mainstream pop culture.  Whether it’s Randy Savage selling Slim Jims, Chris Jericho dancing with stars, or the The Rock making crappy movies, you never know how the wrestling world and the rest of the human race are going to separately interpret it.  Is it simply an act of cross-promotion or is it a wrestler just branching out?

In the case of the CM Punk/Chris Brown twitter war, the answer seems rather obvious: Punk really just doesn’t like Chris Brown.

For those of you who have no idea what I’m talking about, let me explain.  This “too personal to be scripted” war of words began about three days ago when WWE Champion CM Punk had some choice words for Chris Brown.  In a statement that echoed just about everyone else’s sentiments since Mr. Brown decided to beat the holy hell out of Rihanna a few years ago, Punk stated he’d like to see how well Chris would do against someone who could defend themselves,  saying he’d love to “curb stomp that turd.”

Well, Chris Brown caught wind of this and responded to the Champ with his own now deleted comments, most of which included accusations that Punk needs to lay off the steroids.  The only problem with that comment is that Punk does not use steroids.  In fact, in both his in-ring persona and personal life, Punk is a follower of the Straight Edge lifestyle; no drugs, no alcohol, no smoking (more recently Punk has even cut meat and sugar out of his diet as well).

I’m not a follower of the Straight Edge lifestyle, but I’ve known people who are.  And even though none of them have been preachy when it came to their convictions, I surely knew better than to fuck with them when it comes to their beliefs.

Chris Brown apparently does not.  CM Punk posted the following video after the steroid comments were made.

I’m usually not one to condone violence, but who wouldn’t want to see this fight happen.

Fuck Chris Brown.
