Source: Wrestling Observer NewsletterWhile some people backstage knew it was coming, CM Punk's shoot promo on Monday Night RAW certainly had everyone buzzing. When Punk started talking about being "a Paul Heyman guy," and referenced controversial, past WWE names like Brock Lesnar, many wrestlers watching on the monitor were said to be "simply and solidly stunned" according to one WWE Superstar we spoke with, and several others were trying to find out Talent Exec John Laurinaitis' reaction as well.
While no one believes Punk went into business for himself, the majority of the RAW locker room was said to be "in shock"(according to one source in production) over how strong the shoot promo was, and the delivery.
We will have tons more on this story as it continues to develop. It was a worked-shoot promo as evidenced by next week's RAW results (link).
