On tonight’s edition of WWE Backstage, former WWE superstar and analyst CM Punk returned. It’s been about a month since Punk was on the show, and he had a lot to say about the latest developments on WWE TV.
Punk opened up on the segment last night that saw Becky Lynch announce her pregnancy and present her RAW Women’s title to Asuka, who won the Women Money In The Bank briefcase 24 hours ago. Punk said the segment was a missed opportunity. He also explained how he would have done it.
Personally, I think this is a missed moment, a missed opportunity to have the little lovey-dovey moment. Oh, Asuka is very happy for you, congratulations. And then, MIST! Face to face! I think they really missed it. This is what I would have done. And then the void, and that void is filled, you know, you have this monster, evil women at the top of the female division and everyone is chasing her, they want revenge on Becky, they want the title. Can they stop Asuka? No one is ready for Asuka.
CM Punk’s reservation idea would certainly have turned Asuka into a major heel on WWE RAW
The segment was an emotional roller coaster race for the WWE universe, as Lynch canceled its title it won more than a year ago at WrestleMania. Upon learning that Lynch was pregnant, Asuka looked really happy and started hugging her. The Punk idea certainly sounds interesting and would have generated significant heel warmth for Asuka.
