CM Punk Vs. Raven
FWA New Frontiers [March 26th, 2004]
The CM Punk Vs. Raven feud wasn’t just limited to Ring Of Honor. Instead, the straight edge superstar and the brooding Bowery dweller would take their show on the road, including this match all the way from England. Before the show began, CM Punk ventured out to the lobby of the arena to belittle fans for coming to the show to drink alcohol, as he was the big bad guy of the event. “Keep drinking, I want you to die!”
The match goes as several of their contests have, with Raven chasing Punk and Punk picking his spots. Little hardcore in this match, with the exception of some chair play. I can’t confirm if this was one of the matches that helped get Punk noticed by the WWE, but it was definitely one that attributed to his showcasing, as he proved that he wasn’t just a good character, but a great wrestler as well.
