Randy Orton, the man who made a career on spitting, and punting the heads of wrestling legends, sadistically challenged CM Punk this past Monday Night to be as sick and twisted. Don’t think so? Why else would Orton mention in his interview, being broadcast live on Raw, that his wife was in his tour bus?
Whether it was Shawn Michaels, Triple-H, or John Cena, Orton always had the psychological advantage. And for the past several weeks, Orton had systematically put The New Nexus out of commission, while Punk watched from the sidelines. In hindsight, Punk should have intervened on his followers behalf, because, although interfering would have disqualified them from attending WrestleMania, there were still weeks that could have been spent weakening Orton. To this point, the scales for Punk vs. Orton were weighing-in in Orton’s favor up until last Monday.
Does CM Punk know what sick and twisted really is? Well, like he said on the titantron, he knows that was Orton’s tour bus, and expressed that he couldn’t wait to meet his wife. Then as Punk turned towards the bus, he glanced back at the camera and shot a sadistic smirk. Punk met Orton’s open invitation to find his vindictive side with promises of “meeting” his wife, which was succeeded with an ambush. As Orton’s wife screamed in horror at the site of her husband laid out, Punk simply mocked her cries and unsparingly told her to shut up before kicking his head, and then blowing her a kiss.
Has CM Punk reached a new level? Is he sick and twisted? Did singing Happy Birthday to Rey Mysterio’s daughter count as twisted? Did dressing up like Jeff Hardy and coming out to his entrance music a week after forcing him out of the WWE constitute as sick? And does the dark possibility of meeting a man’s wife, only to attack him while she watched deem as both sick and twisted?
Maybe the scales have tipped in Punk’s favor, but when examining all the sick and twisted things that Orton has done throughout his career, could Punk be over his head?
Randal Keith Orton kicked a man where his appendix used to be. He handcuffed and forced someone else to watch as he attacked his wife, grazed her face, and slowly kissed her lips. He attacked another man’s father with an RKO. All perverse actions stemming from the voices in his head. And those same voices advised Orton to inform Punk about his wife, because he yearns for someone to think like him out of boredom of being the Apex Predator.
