CM Punk made his return to WWE Backstage last night and he certainly delivered when it came to giving thoughts that wasn’t under the watchful eye of WWE’s big brother.
Punk was pitched to give his prediction regarding to the Rusev vs. Bobby Lashley tables match this Sunday at WWE TLC. Instead of that, Punk went the extra mile as to how he’d handle the rest of the storyline.
“This is what I would do if I was the booker and I’m not obviously because I’m sane. What you do is they have a match, they have a blow-off, right? I don’t think Rusev wants to be involved with Lana anymore on screen so Lana and Bobby go off, they do their thing, but eventually, you know what? Lana grinds on the nerves, Bobby’s sick of her. So what they do is he leaves Lana too. They have another divorce, okay? They’re out, they’re out.
“She gets another tag team, okay? To go after Rusev and Bobby who have become best friends because they have the familiar, the ex-wife, where they’re just like, ‘Oh, man, this broad, we gotta, you know…’ They become drinking buddies, this new tag team with Lana in tow go after them and what they do at WrestleMania, they put Lana in a shark cage, okay? Because by WrestleMania, the new tag team is already so sick of Lana, okay, that the loser of the match gets what’s in the shark cage, okay?
“Now we continue past WrestleMania. I don’t know if we’re still doing shows in Saudi Arabia, but Lana in Saudi Arabia, I got ideas for that too. Come to me after the show and I’ll tell you all about it.”
