Neither the wrestlers nor the fans are the only ones affected by this. Wrestling is like any other form of entertainment, and like all others it is affected by the times. Wrestling itself is not the only one affected; it is also affected by the influence of the world of entertainment, specially the impact of the internet.
CM Punk was the most popular wrestler in the world for a long time. He was even the WWE’s top star for over 6 years. CM Punk was the most original wrestler in the world for a long time. He even changed the WWE’s basic match formula by mixing different styles of wrestling together in mixed matches (he was the first to do 3 minutes of technical wrestling and 3 minutes of highflying). But unfortunately, CM Punk’s story is not a happy one. He left the WWE for a major reason.
Hey, this is Jon Moxley, and I’m a wrestler. I’m also a gamer. And one of my favorite video games is WWF No Mercy. But I didn’t start out as my favorite wrestler. I was a huge fan of wrestling games back in the day and it wasn’t until I was about 10 years old that I decided I wanted to become a professional wrestler.
Moxley in a Wrestling Match!?! That’s Not Wrestling #16:
Jon Moxley, CM Punk, Kenny Omega, AEW Rampage, Dynamite, and others are among the performers.
Welcome to Geeks+Gamers, and thank you for stopping by! Jon Moxley, CM Punk, Kenny Omega, AEW Rampage, Dynamite, and more are discussed this week!
A few years ago, the stars seemed to be aligning for a major change in the world of professional wrestling. Everyone was talking about a huge new company with a television contract and “real, sport-based wrestling.” The contemporary wrestling fan’s existence of “eating crap and learning to enjoy the flavor” has finally come to an end. Wasn’t it? Every Thursday, join me here to dissect the acts of the stupid, dangerous, and desperate in pro wrestling… well, in AEW.
To anybody (re)joining the wrestling party, I follow and remark on the sport as a whole; I have no preference for whatever organization I support or despise. If someone does something nice, that’s great; if someone does something bad, I’ll call attention to it. Because AEW isn’t WWE or because of VINCE-MAN-BAD, it doesn’t immediately have a pass to dish up nonsense.
Tiny Tony Khan has more money than wisdom; he’s not exactly a scrappy underdog taking on a corporate behemoth. Find out what occurred when Mr. McKhan requested a soccer team for his toy box by speaking with several Fulham FC supporters.
The new superstar signing is a positive step forward, but it won’t suddenly erase two years of humiliation, cosplaying, and needless injuries.
The Pilot is Punk
It’s time to see what CM Punk’s presence will bring to AEW now that he’s officially arrived. It’s a bit early to label him “The Needle-Mover” at this point, since we haven’t yet seen a rating that eclipses any prior marks. Sure, his debut had AEW’s highest rating to date, but his first Dynamite appearance had the show’s third-best rating; we haven’t yet lit the globe on fire.
Booker T, a WWE Hall of Famer, questioned Punk’s first promo on Rampage. He said that Punk should not be dwelling on the past or disparaging his origins. Booker has taken a lot of fire online for this, as you would anticipate from some of the AEW die-hards. Booker even went on to add that although he didn’t think it was terrible, he thought it might have been better.
While I believe that CM Punk had a difficult time working for Vince McMahon and that he has every right to be bitter, I also agree with Booker’s original statement. I’m not suggesting that mentioning “the other place” should be prohibited, but when so many on the AEW roster (more on Jon Moxley later) have taken so many shots at WWE in the last two years, it doesn’t have the same impact or add anything new. So let’s take a look forward. I’m all for concentrating on the here and now with the opportunity to glean some knowledge from the past, so let’s take a look ahead.
This isn’t the instantaneous burst of greatness that Ian had hoped for, but worry not: the fire is still burning; it’s just a slow-burning inferno. Fill the gas, wash off the seat, hand over the keys, and let CM Punk fly this dog to its destination!
We’re concentrating on Darby.
CM Punk did, in fact, speak briefly on the future after settling in with the audience and getting comfortable cross-legged in the center of the ring. From the rafters above, Darby Allin and Sting were able to witness the performance. This made Punk’s acceptance of Allin’s veiled challenge from a few weeks ago even easy.
On September 5th, the two will meet at All Out. The event has a beautiful promotional poster. Don’t worry, I’m not going to disclose that 10 of the 17 people on the list are people I’ve worked with before… oops.
Punk’s sphere of influence isn’t confined to the angle or match he’s presently fighting, and that’s a good thing. On Rampage, he pulled a throng inside the building, told some tales, struck up a conversation, and then walked out with an ice cream bar for each of the fans.
Everyone else on the program had the opportunity to grab the audience’s attention and leave an impact while they were waiting for the crowd to complete their actual (and metaphorical) gratifying delights. Punk’s appearance on Dynamite was less memorable. He summarized his actions, told his wife he loved her, and left. I have a feeling we’ll be seeing a lot more of him in the coming weeks.
Sunday Best by Kenny Omega
Kenny Omega wore a suit and spoke almost little during his part after CM Punk received a standing ovation from the Chicago audience at Rampage. Omega may have been captured by the camera because he had just returned from a judicial session. On the other hand, there’s a good possibility he got the concept from someone else.
Omega borrowed a suit and believed it would make him appear like a champion… or at the very least, like a professional wrestler, similar to the time Cartman donned a wool sweater and felt it immediately made him attractive. The bulk of the talking was done by Don Callis, the ad didn’t go too far from the realistic, and it didn’t drag on too long. Every time this structure gets broken, it’s another opportunity to show that Omega isn’t all he’s cracked up to be.
The debut of CM Punk had been hyped for a long time and was eagerly anticipated. The major event of this week’s edition of That’s Not Wrestling was the greatest shock on Rampage last week, in my view. This is something I don’t believe anybody anticipated to happen…
Jon Moxley Wrestled a F*ck!n Wrestler!
That’s correct! Jon Moxley typically decides it’s time to go to the floor, grab some weapons, and fight in the stands as the opening bell rings. However, during last week’s AEW Rampage, it didn’t happen for “some” reason.
The referee sounded the bell, and the two guys imitated a very convincing fight, to to my amazement. I’m not joking when I say this. They didn’t even get out of the ring. To be sure, I re-watched it! Jon Moxley, that cunning little rogue, had me completely deceived. When it became clear that all he intended to do in AEW was engage in street fights and deathmatches, I felt bad for celebrating his “independence” from WWE.
In the main event of Rampage, Jon Moxley faced Danny Garcia. Following Moxley’s first assault, an aggressive Garcia struck gold and took advantage of Moxley for a brief time. When attempting to get Moxley to surrender, the novice would bite off more than he could chew. Garcia’s grip was reversed, and he was trapped in a bulldog choke, having no choice but to tap out.
There were no weapons, no breaking the rules, no 9999 near-falls, and no signature or finishing move since they weren’t required. The cohesiveness was really befuddling.
It was a sad sight to see Jon Moxley utilized mainly for comic idiocy in WWE, particularly since it was clear that he had a lot more to offer. All this time, I thought Moxley suffered from some kind of dissociative personality disorder, in which once he ceased “being” Dean Ambrose, all information he had acquired and retained throughout that identity was erased. Ambrose was the most charismatic member of The Shield, and he was always more technically sound than he was given credit for.
Let’s hope this is the start of a new chapter for Moxley.
That Pop Is Calling To You
Others backstage would have overheard CM Punk’s responses and wondered how they, too, might achieve the same level of success. They’ll go in line to ask Punk for tips, not The Young Bucks, Kenny Omega, or Cody Rhodes, thankfully for them and for us. I wouldn’t be shocked if any of the Extra Value Performers approached Punk for guidance, but I wouldn’t rule out the possibility that they were hiding around a corner, listening in on a free lesson.
CM Daddy has returned! Maintain your finest demeanor!

Last week, I had the pleasure of seeing CM Punk take part in a WWE Network special, the first time the WWE’s finest has appeared in months. CM Punk has long been a favorite of mine, gaining notoriety for his entertaining promos and for his controversial decision to leave the WWE in 2014. But, I’m not here to talk about CM Punk. I’m here to talk about the magnificent Jon Moxley, who punked out CM Punk in the aforementioned special. Watching the match, I was struck by how similar the two are, but how different their matches are.. Read more about wrestler south park and let us know what you think.
