Original Plan For CM Punk: Laid Out By Triple H



According to Dave Meltzer in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, there were six different scripts written for this past Monday’s RAW.

The main goal for the entire CM Punk storyline was not so much for him to get over, but rather to get over Triple H taking over Vince McMahon’s position.

The original plan for CM Punk’s return was as follows: Get attacked by HHH, laid out with the pedigree, and then Alberto Del Rio would cash in his Money in the Bank leading to Del Rio vs. John Cena at Summerslam. The idea was that HHH would become a major heel as a result and feud with a babyface Punk. Plans ending up changing, and as Meltzer noted, Punk’s elevation wasn’t “shut down.”
