    Default Is Bully Ray going to be their answer to CM Punk?

    The way they have built him up and turned him from one of their leading faces to top heel. Not in terms of in ring skills but by their characters? I can kind of see it, the way he turned would seem like something CM Punk would probably do for a cool heel turn.

    I'm sorry cause I have not watched the WWE in a long time, does Punk have a group?

    If not maybe the better comparison would be Bobby Roode's domination in the first half of 2012.

    What a minute. So all you are basing this comparison on is the fact that they both made heel turns? Pretty week. There is no comparison between the two at all. In fact I'm still not convinced that Punk is any better than a "well we have nobody else" level champion.

    Please don't compare Bully Ray to that vanilla midget, he beats him hands down in every caspect of being a pro wrestler.

    No.

    But I do think his run will rejuvenate the company, just like Punk did after "Pipe Bomb RAW"

    Bully Ray is the best thing in pro wrestling at the moment. Just saw his Rise of Aces & 8s explanation videos. Just pure awesomeness.

    Bully doesn't even deserve to be compared to Punk. In WWE, Bully wouldn't even be a midcard champion.

    I don't even watch TNA regularly, and just from what I've seen on YouTube, even I agree with this. It's mind bogglingly how epic this guy is right now.

    Anyone who missed Bully Ray's post match antics and promo from inside the cage should go see it now. Classic stuff right there. Gave me goosebumps when I saw it live

    Ray knows how to be a pure heel, he excels in it. Most modern heels to an extent pander to the crowd, or their heel-antics are too forced, but Ray has the aura of being a total dick and doesn't give a fuck what anybody thinks about him. It's a shame his potential wasn't realised when he was still in WWE.

    I thought it sucked and his match with Hardy bored me but hey I got very specific tastes.


    "There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs."

    That kinda backfires when he goes into the crowd, singles a fan out, and hurls homophobic slurs at him in front of his daughter.

    Ray apologised, the fan apologised... let it go.

    Why? First off, his apology was weak. Second, he unleashed a homophobic tirade the likes of which I've never seen from somebody representing a company in the public eye. Nothing should be let go. He should be taken to task about it.

    What do you want done? He's made two public apologies, and personally contacted the fan to apologise for his actions. Would you like him castrated live on Impact by a group of gay rights activists as punishment?

    Not condoning Bully's actions, he obviously overstepped the line, but I don't know where else you want this to go. Will you never forgive him for this? Do you think he should be fired, stripped of the title, made to tag with Eric Young? What's a fitting punishment, as two public apologies and a personal apology isn't enough?
