The Cageside Seats (CSS) Pro Wrestling Tournament continues today with a first round match-up pitting number six seed CM Punk against number 11 seed Batista.
Punk is the current World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) champion who worked his way up from the very bottom on the independent scene. He's extremely durable, talented on the mic and can work any style of match he's asked. He's created multiple intriguing characters and played each one to perfection. It took him a while to make it to the top but now that he's there, he should dominate the scene for a while.
Batista, just like Randy Orton, was chosen as a member of the stable Evolution, which served to help get him over with fans. When Triple H decided to make him in three consecutive pay-per-view (PPV) events, it was set in stone and he was a main event level player who had multiple world title reigns until he left the industry in 2010. His career but was short but he managed to accomplish an awful lot during that time.
They've worked together before and now they get to work together again. Only this time, you Cagesiders determine their fate. Who goes over clean?
