CM Punk in the New Breed makes sense. With all due respect to Burke, no one on the New Breed comes off as the heel equivalent of Rob Van Dam on the Originals. The New Breed needed someone to be the leader, and Punk is it. I'm looking forward to them building towards an eventual RVD vs. Punk match. Also, this now makes room on the Originals for Balls Mahoney or someone to get in the mix. Smart booking by WWE, even though I am sure ROH fans will be complaining about it.
ECW was pretty weak, and I wonder if WWE Creative is just coasting by this week, since Raw wasn't that great either. Punk joining the New Breed seemed anti-climactic to me. I would have liked a bigger "moment" from it. Hopefully they will let Tommy Dreamer cut some promos about what ECW means to him and the other Originals, get the fans to support them more, since I think it is possible that some fans will cheer Punk over them.
Also, can we let Stevie Richards have just one win? Please, just one?
