News on Punk/WWE

Attorneys for C.M. Punk sent a 22 page letter to WWE over royalties (I believe WWE stopped sending Punk royalty money over their claim of a breach of contract) and use of his likeness, particularly him being featured in the video game (the roster of the game was put together before he quit the promotion even though it was just announced two weeks ago).

Paul Heyman Talks WWE Not Wanting CM Punk From The Start, Punk Having To Swim Upstream In WWE.

Paul Heyman recently appeared on The KiddChris Show and shared his recollections of CM Punk's earliest work in WWE. The show's host led into the discussion by asserting that WWE never wanted anything to do with Punk and Heyman agreed.

"They never wanted CM Punk to begin with," Heyman said. "When I was in Louisville, doing WWE Developmental, they sent CM Punk down to me so I could fire him. Every week I would send memos to guys who were in charge of the Raw and SmackDown rosters saying: ‘You have a main eventer down here; someone scoop him up’ and no one would take him for a year—to the point when we launched ECW in WWE, I brought him with me because no one else on Raw and SmackDown even wanted him."

Heyman explained that Punk’s biggest successes were against WWE’s will and contrary to their judgment and praised Punk for his accomplishments despite these issues.

The Laser Tag Grudge Match: Nerdist vs. RocketJump and Gearbox.

By now, you’re probably aware that at Comic-Con, we, along with 2K and Gearbox, took over the top floor of San Diego’s Petco Park and transformed it into the rootinest tootinest team-based shootinest Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel laser tag arena this side of the Mississippi. You know what? It was the best on the other side of the Mississippi, too. You’ve seen CM Punk’s final form as the cyborg assassin, The Laser Tag-inator. You’ve even seen RocketJump’s portrayal of one man’s descent into madness vis-a-vis the crucible of laser tag. But, now you can witness the action of the biggest, baddest event that went down at Petco Park all weekend: the Grudge Match between Team Nerdist, and the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants known as Team RocketJump and Gearbox.

Watch in awes as Chris Hardwick displays an athleticism heretofore unseen by the likes of nerds! Marvel as Freddie Wong displays a rate of fire that would surely get him accused of wall hacking! Tremble in fear as CM Punk…sits…in the audience. And keep a careful eye on that magician of mayhem, Randy Pitchford. Seriously, he’s a magician and therefore probably can’t be trusted. There are only two things that we know for certain in this life: Nerdist Laser Tag was the best damn part of Comic-Con 2014, and Team Nerdist definitely totally absolutely won. But don’t take our word for it — watch for yourselves and see the laser-based awesomeness.

CM Punk Dines on Grubs With The Bug Chef and THE BOXTROLLS at SDCC.

Maybe it’s the carnival atmosphere San Diego Comic-Con has taken on in recent years, but if you cover something in chocolate or deep fry it and put it on a stick, the people will come. The people will come, they will be hungry, and they will eat what you offer. That’s what CM Punk discovered when chatting it up with David George Gordon, aka The Bug Chef at The Boxtrolls Truck outside the convention.

If every movie out of Laika House in the last few years has included something that made you go “ewwwww”, The Boxtrolls will be no exception. The adorably misunderstood sub-street-dwelling trolls feast on bugs as their main source of nutrients, and when Gordon heard this, he saw an opportunity to bring what some parts of the world consider a delicacy to the masses. Those delicacies include teriyaki-marinated grasshoppers, waxworms in quesadilla  form, and Oaxacan Chapulines, a small grasshopper seasoned with chili, lime juice and dipped in chocolate.

You may not be ready for insects on your dinner plate (even if they are served in cheese or chocolate), but CM Punk is down to try anything. And as far as Comic-Con food sources go, these can’t possibly be that bad. The line to get up to the truck was extensive, and as The Bug Chef reminds us all, bugs are an absolutely excellent source of lean protein. Who knew?

The Boxtrolls arrives in theaters September 26th, and we are excited to explore the new beautiful and weird world that Laika House has cooked up for us this time.
