After the shocking return of Paul Bearer last week, The Undertaker appears to have now fully harnessed the powers of darkness. Unfortunately for CM Punk, who simply could not find a way to stop the hard-charging Phenom. With “The Father of Destruction” in his corner, The Deadman dispatched of The Straight Edge Superstar with a brutal chokeslam, followed by a lethal Tombstone. It may be a sign of things to come this Sunday, when The Phenom faces his brother, World Heavyweight Champion Kane
Yes, it’s official and yes he’s finally on twitter. Head over to his official twitter to read his latest tweet or just to follow him.
At Night of Champions, Big Show will step into the ring with CM Punk, as the powerful knockout punch of The World’s Largest Athlete clashes with the full power of Straight Edge.
Big Show has pledged to eradicate CM Punk from WWE and with good reason. Punk nearly broke the gigantic Superstar’s hand with the assistance of his Straight Edge Society. Though Big Show went on to overcome The S.E.S. at SummerSlam, The Second City Saint’s early departure from the match prevented the giant from finishing the job.
After Big Show ridiculed the Straight Edge way-of-life on Monday Night Raw’s 900th episode celebration, Luke Gallows was sent forth to destroy him. However, when the “Sin-free Soldier” tapped out to Big Show’s Colossal Clutch, Punk became unhinged and executed the GTS on his own war-torn disciple! Now, with the future of The S.E.S. uncertain, Punk could be in for an enormous problem.
Though “The minister of Straight Edge” is the smaller of the two Superstars, that doesn’t mean he should be taken lightly. Punk is a two-time Money in the Bank Ladder Match winner and a two-time World Heavyweight Champion. His cunning nature is only outdone by his plentiful arsenal of dangerous maneuvers – most notably the dreaded Anaconda Vise – which helped claim a victory over the legendary Undertaker.
Will Big Show throw The Straight Edge Savior into a crooked future of pain? Find out at Night of Champions, Sunday, Sept. 19, at 8/7 CT, only on pay-per-view.
Welcome to a brand-spakin’-new segment over at the Anaheim Punk Examiner. It’s called “What The Punk?” So what exactly is “What The Punk?” Well, let me tell you. Basically it’s expanding the “punk” to outside of just the music. It’s reserved for fans of punk rock who work in other entertainment fields, or punk artists, or even writers or athletes or actors who embody the punk spirit. Up first, WWE Superstar CM Punk. The three-time WWE World Heavyweight Champion talks about his love of punk rock, The Bouncing Souls and his upcoming SummerSlam match with The Big Show.
Matt Baldwin: How did you get your start in wrestling?
CM Punk: Very D.I.Y actually, so I guess that’s a good way to start for a punk rock interview. I loved wrestling since I was a little kid, so it was the only thing I wanted to do. I didn’t know that you had to get trained, I didn’t know that there was such thing as a wrestling school, I pretty much just did the same thing that everyone else did and rolled around in backyards with my friends and stuff. We weren’t jumping off of roofs or doing any of the crazy stuff that you see kids doing today, which is a bad thing to do, but we I guess acted out our wrestling fantasies or whatever. It kind of blossomed from there. I built a ring by myself. I didn’t know how to do any of this stuff. But then me and my buddies started running shows in the Chicago-area and even though we were completely un-trained, just goofy kids, we wound up attendance-wise and entertainment wise blowing away of the other local shows. So that’s how it started.

Overcoming the odds in a 3-on-1 Handicap Match seems nearly impossible for any Superstar. However, Big Show isn’t your average Superstar. At nearly 500 pounds, he is The World’s Largest Athlete.
While Big Show’s weapons are his size and strength, The Straight Edge Society boasts a propensity to band together and attack its foes like a pack of hungry predators.
On the July 30 edition of SmackDown, CM Punk, Luke Gallows, Joey Mercury and Serena brutally assaulted Big Show, repeatedly smashing and stomping his hand into the steel ring steps. (PHOTOS)
Although the beating clearly had an impact that night on SmackDown, will it only fuel the giant’s anger when he steps in the ring at SummerSlam?
With Serena falling off the wagon, and CM Punk continually reprimanding his devoted followers, the foundation of The S.E.S. appears to be on shaky ground.
At SummerSlam, either a giant will be toppled or an entire society may come crumbling down.
