This week, I take a look at the CM Punk promo from Monday Night. Could one single promo kick start wrestling? Did you hear Adam Pearce is coming back to the ring after his injury in NWA Championship Wrestling from Hollywood. Congrats to LCW for breaking new ground here in SoCal, Battleground Pro wants your feedback, and who is the next big thing in SoCal? Also we’ll tell you how to stay home and still watch wrestling from SoCal on Friday Night. Plus Willie Mack is in my spotlight and all of the upcoming matches for the weekend.
CM Punk Rules The World
I don’t normally speak about the going-ons of the WWE, there are a ton of websites out there who do it much better than I could, mostly because I don’t watch it. But as many of you saw on Monday, there was something that got me to search the internet for the promo that shocked the world. It wasn’t too hard to find. When I saw this video a total of 37 people had watched it. As I am writing this, that number is now over 400,000.
@JCLayfield “CM Punk’s promo-shoot or work? Who cares? When you are so good that you can put that doubt in viewers minds you have done your job very well”
@steveaustinBSR “CM Punk just melted my 52 inch TV with a scorching hot promo…delivery, content, and attitude…one of the best promos I’ve ever seen.”
Besides wrestling sites all over the web going nuts with this, even respectable media members, like Jim Rome were talking about it. Not sure where it leaves the WWE as they have “suspended” CM Punk, but have also made the video available on-line. Punk has always been entertaining, even dating to his days on commentary for njpw/USA or his days working in PWG, but this was incredible.

Spotlight: Willie Mack
When you look at a guy like Willie Mack, a lot of times it’s just easy to step back and be amazed. As “Chocolate Caliente” has become an integral part of Lucha Va Voom, Mack also competes regularly for the top promotions in Southern California, like PWG, can be seen weekly at Mach-1 Wrestling and on television with NWA Championship Wrestling from Hollywood. Mack has even recently been making the road trips to Arizona to compete for EXW. Surely the Willie Mack Brand has been reaching out, even showing up on Pay Per View for the Urban Wrestling Federation. Willie Mack recently announced on his twitter he’ll be appearing in Germany for wXw. Westside Extreme Wrestling is based out of Oberhausen Germany and has partnered with many American based wrestling promotions most notably PWG and Combat Zone Wrestling. When I spoke with Willie Mack on my podcast (nearly a year ago) he expressed then that he had ambitions to see the world wrestling, specifying Australia. Willie Mack’s departure to Germany will see him miss some time from both Mach-1 and NWA Hollywood. But we here at SoCalUNCENSORED wish Willie Mack safe journeys and a great time.
