CM Punk Responds to the WWE Crowning a New WWE Champion Tonight on Raw

Earlier this afternoon the WWE announced that Rey Mysterio would be taking on The Miz in the first match of tonight's WWE Monday Night Raw.  I speculated in our post that we'd hear from Punk soon, whether it be in person or on Twitter.  Sure enough, Punk took to Twitter and voiced his opinion:

Make believe championship? Fantasy land title?less than a minute ago via Twitter for iPhone Favorite Retweet Reply

@mikethemiz hey! Maybe if you win, you can make a nice hat out of newspaper and that can be the new title! "it's not a belt, it's a hat!"less than a minute ago via Twitter for iPhone Favorite Retweet Reply

@reymysterio I say if you win, the new title is that sock you wear on your head.less than a minute ago via Twitter for iPhone Favorite Retweet Reply

 

As expected, CM Punk thinks the crowning of a new WWE Champion is a joke, and there's no shortage of fans who agree.  It will be interesting to see if Triple H presents Punk with an ultimatum of some sort during tonight's show, as Punk holding the true WWE title is not quite a face that can be overlooked, or swept under the rug.  I'm sure Punk has no shortage of things to say about tonight's show, and you can check out our roundup of CM Punk's comments when Raw goes off the air!
