Let Roman Reigns and CM Punk burn everything down

FanPost promoted to the front page.

Some men just want to watch the world burn, and I am one of those men.

On SmackDown, Paul Heyman revealed that Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns and Solo Sikoa will challenge Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens for the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Titles at Night of Champions on May 27.

Immediately, my heart jumped for joy at the thought of Roman Reigns adding more titles to his collection, only to disappear to the Island of Relevancy, thus angering wrestling fans everywhere.

And then it hit me.

The only thing better than Roman Reigns as an absentee ruler of the singles and tag team divisions would be if the Tribal Chief went on to win every men's title on WWE's main roster before going back on hiatus.

In the modern world, it's challenging for heels to get heat. Today's sports entertainment enthusiasts are more sophisticated, and it takes a great effort to make them boo heartily. But take something away or worse, give fans more of what they claim they don't want, and they go berserk.

So picture the response if WWE draped Reigns in all its gold while letting him rob the fans of ever seeing a championship match in the men's division for who knows how long.

If Chief Content Officer Triple H and his creative team put their heads together, they could develop a plot to present Reigns as wrestling's answer to Marvel's Thanos, with an Avengers: Endgame conclusion that might make the WWE Universe happy.

But until that day comes, the outrageous display of outrage on social media would be nuclear. Plus, the visceral reactions by arena-goers would make for great television as it has in the past.

But I can't let WWE have all the fun.

Over in All Elite Wrestling, word around the campfire is that CM Punk is returning to the company he burnt to a crisp last summer when AEW's new weekly Saturday night show, Collision, debuts on June 17.

By now, most wrestling fans know the story. Punk, who was feeling maligned by peers and wrestling's tabloid writers, went on an obscenity-laced tirade during a press conference following AEW's All Out pay-per-view. A backstage brawl between Punk and Kenny Omega and the Young Bucks allegedly ensued, throwing the entire promotion into turmoil, even to this day.

For AEW Co-Owner Tony Khan to bring Punk back and act as if nothing happened seems like an insult to the audience. A statement of some kind feels most appropriate, especially from the Chicago-made superstar.

Then again, how glorious would it be if Punk launched into another verbal assault? Instead of offering an apology or hint of remorse, what if Punk doubled down on his previous off-color comments?

"Adam Page? He's still an empty-headed dumb f***, and this place is still run by children too stupid to run a retail store."

Perhaps the most disappointing thing about Punk's rant was that he had to take time off due to injury, robbing the fans of some clear resolution. Would Tony Khan still have chosen to strip Punk of the AEW World title? What would the atmosphere in the locker room be like if those involved were available to show up to work as usual, and how might that have affected AEW programming?

While the world will never know the answers to such questions, AEW can now script a similar moment to get fans talking. Or fuming.

And with Punk's return possibly being called The Second Coming, which reeks of a holier-than-though attitude, a potential heel run from the Second City Saint could hit a nerve that leads to big bucks at the box office for AEW.

And nothing would be sweeter than a villainous CM Punk with a live mic in his hands.

What say you, Cagesiders? How do you feel about such anarchy, and what kind of chaos would you like to see in wrestling over the coming weeks?
