CM Punk Won at UFC 203 - He achieved his dream

CM Punk Wins at UFC 203 - He achieved his dream 

Image result for cm punk

CM Punk was a former wrestler who left WWE under difficult circumstances, following him leaving he was offered a deal with UFC to train to become a fighter.

A lot of people MMA fans, Purists, Pundits and MMA fighters layed into CM Punk and UFC for even making this deal with a man would had no previous fighting experience.

Do you Remember your first day at work in a new job? remember how nervous you felt and how many people have doubts and fellow colleagues have in you?

Take that feeling Then imagine people are criticising you before you even start in you job and saying you cant do the job you applied for and you don't have the skills and you cant do this and you wouldn't be able to learn it.

Then Imagine you  had to deal with hundreds of people telling you "your not good enough" through social media channels day after day for months and months

 After all that would you turn up for your 1st day?

CM Punk did
CM Punk had to deal with all this before he even entered the octagon.

There were many people doubting that when CM Punk announced he was going to fight in UFC that he would even make it to the octagon and thought he would quit before having a fight.

CM Punk suffered setback with injuries and surgeries and having to take more time than he wanted to make his debut. CM Punk talks about this in interview video below

CM Punk talks to Ariel Helwani 3 days before his UFC Debut and talks about his Journey over the past 2 years

CM Punk went into UFC knowing it could go other way Win or lose.

CM Punk said many times that he would enter the octagon and was going to either "kick ass or get his ass kicked" CM Punk went up against 2-0 Fighter Mickey Gall and Mickey was able to make CM Punk Submit in the first round.

You can hear CM Punk post match thoughts in the video below

CM Punk Post fight interview

Punk stated in his post fight interview

“I know there were a lot of doubters, but life is about falling down and getting back up,It doesn’t matter how many times you get knocked down, it’s about getting back up. So if there’s any kid out there who’s been told by a parent or a coach or a teacher, somebody they look up to or somebody that’s supposed to push them and believe in them and they’re told no, don’t listen to that.

Believe in yourself. Sometimes, the outcome isn’t always what you desire it to be. But the true failure in life is not trying at all. I know that sounds preachy and kind of weird for a guy who just got beat up, but [expletive] it. This was the time of my life.”

To me CM Punk won at UFC 203. Some of you will say I'm crazy CM Punk Didn't win his match and you'd be right CM Punk didn't win his match, but he did win, because he achieved his dream and what he set out to do.

How many of us have dreams personal or professional that we haven't reached? How many of us have something we want to achieve but were too afraid to make that decision and make that jump into the unknown?

CM Punk wasn't afraid to make that decision and to take that risk. Failure isn't trying and not succeeding failure is not trying at all.

CM Punk did something that not may others have done he made his MMA debut in front of millions of people live on PPV. Most Fighters start off their career in smaller promotions then work their way up to UFC. CM Punk was offered an opportunity by UFC and he took it and he took it knowing what lay in store for him.

CM Punk has said himself that he is not sure what is next for him, but would like for his MMA career to continue whether in UFC or not.

CM Punk UFC 203 Post show Press conference highlights 

CM Punk story doesn't end yet he has more to go as he said himself "Go Big or Go Home" you can question CM Punk Ability, CM Punk MMA style or MMA credentials one thing you cant question is his heart, his belief, his passion and his guts to follow his heart and to keep achieving, Progressing and believing in his dream.

This isnt the end for CM Punk its just the start

Could Daniel Bryan Return to Wrestling in WWE vs The Miz?

Could Daniel Bryan Return to Wrestling in WWE vs The Miz?


In February 2016 WWE universe had to say goodbye to Daniel Bryan. The sad and unfortunate news came that Bryan could no longer wrestle in WWE due to neurological conditions/concussions affecting Bryan.

Daniel Bryan had always wrestled a high octane, fast quick paced style which drew fans towards him especially in WWE where that style of Wrestling wasn't as prevalent as it is today.

Bryan Style ultimately led him to have to end his career in WWE as WWE Doctors determined that it would no longer be safe for him to return into a WWE ring.

Daniel Bryan went away for a little while and by his own admission in an interview admitted that he had "a breakdown" after retiring.

After a few months WWE brought Daniel Bryan back to television as part of commentary team along with the excellent Mauro Ranallo calling the Crusierweight Classic on WWE network.

Then in addition to this he was then named by Shane Mcmahon as the newest general manger of Smackdown Live.

Daniel Bryan also appears on a New Show on WWE Network called Talking Smack hosted by Renee Young after every episode of Smackdown Live Bryan would talk about what happened on the show.

Image result for daniel bryan and the miz talking smack

On Talking Smack The MIz appeared and Daniel Bryan Called the Miz a coward due to his wrestling style. The Miz replied and stated that "My wrestling style is something I can do day in and day out for the last 10 years I have never missed a day or been put 6 months or a year"

The Miz then went on to berate Daniel Bryan stating that Bryan was a coward for not coming back and Wrestling in WWE and getting back the intercontinental title as he promised the fans that he would.

The Miz then added that if Bryan loved this business so much then he should quit the WWE and "go back to Bingo Halls with your friends" Bryan then walked out of the studio.

After seeing this I had an idea in my head. I don't believe the rumours are true and I don't believe we will see Daniel Bryan wrestling in WWE but consider this for a second.......

Daniel Bryan didn't get to leave WWE on his terms and if he wanted to have one more match he could do and here's how he could do it.

WWE continue to build the feud between Miz and Daniel Bryan with The Miz being as real as he wants to be, talking about Bryan, His Wife Brie and how Miz and Maryse are better than Bryan and Brie after they replaced them on total divas. Let Miz taunt Bryan as much as he wants.

After weeks of deep personal comments from the Miz.........

Finally Daniel Bryan has enough, Finally Bryan lets out all of his frustration  and cuts a promo about his retirement and how much he needs to wrestle.

Bryan says he cant challenge Miz in a WWE Ring because he wouldn't be allowed back, but if Miz is man enough to take on the challenge to go where wrestlers actually wrestle there is a ring they can step into, in an environment he loves and In a company Bryan Worked for and even helped name that company is Evolve.

Image result for Evolve wrestling

Evolve is a promotion run by Gabe Sapolosky and Evolve has a working partnership with WWE and has been co promoting events and had WWE Stars appear at their events etc for the past year. Also Evolve stars have been in the cruiserweight classic. 

 If Bryan was fit enough or was able to be fit enough why not have his last match under the Evolve banner? It would be the biggest match in Evolve history, add even more credibility to Evolve and Bryan name value could help push Evolve to a higher level.

WWE could even put the event live on the WWE network so that all the fans around the world would be able to see the match too.

Daniel Bryan would be able to end his in ring wrestling career on his own terms and that is invaluable.

This may never happen but in Wrestling Never Say Never

NJPW World and Kenny Omega NJPW G1 Climax Victory

NJPW World and Kenny Omega’s G1 Climax Victory

As many of you know I recently subscribed to New Japan World. I have been able to do this thanks to New Japan Partnering with Paypal and making it a lot easier to sign up. 

Using Google Translate on the website and Sign up enter your Paypal details your ready to see all the great content that NJPW World has to offer. They have live shows, Recent Shows, Documentaries and more.

All of that for only 999 yen (Roughly £7) is a great deal)

 In addition NJPW World have just added an English Language channel with all their English Language content in one place too which makes it easier for fans to access content.

NPJW seem to keep building on this and improve NJPW World as much as they can. It will be interesting to see what NJPW do in the future and how NJPW world progresses.

The major advantage for me is that now I get to See What Kenny Omega and the Young bucks are doing in Japan either Live on NJPW World or later if I have to work :(

One of the advantages so signing up when I did to NJPW world was that G1 Climax Tournament 2016 had just started so there were new shows every couple of days featuring Tournament matches.

G1 Climax was a completely new concept to me and I’d never seen it before so another great element of signing up is that you get to see and experience different concepts in Pro Wrestling and introduced to a different ways that wrestling can be experienced and presented. For those Unfamiliar her is how the G1 Works

 There are two blocks Block A and Block B. New Japan Wrestlers are separated into each block and All Wrestlers in Block A wrestle each other once and All Wrestlers in Block B Wrestle once.

Every match you win you are awarded 2 points, 1 Point for a draw and zero for a loss. After all the matches have been completed the wrestler on top of Group A has a match against the wrestler who finished top of Group B - The winner of the match is the G1 Climax Champion.

Kenny Omega has had a tremendous G1 Climax tournament in 2016 No foreigner has ever won the Tournament. Kenny was Drawn in Group B and this is his journey through the G1 Climax (you can view all matches on NJPW World too)

Kenny Omega lost vs Yoshi-hashi (0 points)

Kenny Omega won vs Toru Yano (2 points)

Kenny Omega won vs Homma (2 points) 

Kenny Omega lost vs Michael Elgin (0 Points)

Kenny Omega won vs EVIL (2 points) 

Kenny Omega lost vs shibata (0 points)

Kenny Omega won vs Yuji Nagata (2 points)

Kenny Omega won vs Nakajima  (2 points) 

Kenny had one more match to go vs Naito and pressure was on as Kenny Omega had to win  

Kenny had to win his final match vs Naito in order to finish 1st and move on to the final and face the winner of block A. Kenny and Naito in my opinion had a match which I believe was match of the year. Omega and Naito showed that they are the top dogs in New Japan. They told a great story throughout their match it had all the elements that in my opinion make pro wrestling matches so great action, suspense, drama and more importantly made me suspend my disbelief.

Here is the match in Summary (Please do see it on NJPW World you wont regret it)

Naito went after Omega left leg and really focuses his attack there all match culminating in a modified figure 4 which looked like it would end the match however Omega got to the ropes. Omega came back with some insane offence if his own.

A power bomb over a guard rail and through a table then a dive from the top rope over the barrier and plunging down on Naito then when Naito gets back towards the ring Omega hits him with a dragon suplex on the ring apron!!! Naito tried to put Omega away but Omega fought valiantly with one leg and managed to hit the one winged Angel (after trying for it throughout the match) and got the pinfall victory!

Kenny Omega wins and gets 2 points which means Omega Finishes top of block B and is in the final!!! 

That lead to the Final Match Block A winner Goto vs Block B Winner Kenny Omega

The screen shots below from NJPW World 

This match was incredible Kenny Omega in my opinion had his 2nd match of the year in 2 days! Words really can't do this match justice it really can't. I became so emotionally involved in this match I cared so much and wanted to see Omega win and create history. Credit must go to Goto as well it takes 2 people to have a great match and his contribution to this match cannot be understated either.

Here is a summary of the final match

Goto used his intelligence and went after the leg that Naito had injured the day before and put Omega in some really jeopardy throughout this match and became very close to winning himself. Omega hit some high impact moves a powerbomb on the apron, a great moonsault and even flew off the top rope backwards with Goto on his back. Omega then did some moves you might recognise he did Bloody Sunday, Styles clash and even his arch nemesis Kota Ibushi Phoenix splash!!!! After all this Omega couldn't put Goto away but eventually omega managed to hit One winged Angel and get pinfall victory.  

With this victory Omega becomes the first foreign wrestler to win G1 tournament. Not only that Omega came from being a junior heavyweight and transitioning smoothly into a credible and dangerous heavyweight. Omega proved that hard work pays off, he proved that if your passionate enough you can achieve your dream. Omega has so much depth to him, I believe this is just the start.

What's next for Kenny Omega? Well.........The Bullet Club is stronger, The Elite are even more elite and Kenny did an interview after his match and said that his next target is IWGP World Champion Okada!! 

I for one can't see and can't wait for that and to see what else the future holds for Kenny Omega.

The G1 tournament was awesome and now I'm definitely hooked to NJPW World! :)
