CM Punk’s Controversial Win at WWE Clash at the Castle 2024: Eric Bischoff Weighs In

One big thing: Eric Bischoff praises CM Punk’s controversial victory over Drew McIntyre

Former WCW President Eric Bischoff applauds WWE’s decision to have CM Punk cheat Drew McIntyre out of the World Heavyweight Championship at Clash at the Castle 2024.

Key points:

• Bischoff believes the finish generated necessary “heat” for storytelling
• He sees it as part of a larger narrative arc, likely in “Act 2”
• Bischoff cautions against overusing such finishes but felt the timing was perfect for this event

Why it matters:

The controversial outcome intensifies the ongoing feud between Punk and McIntyre, setting the stage for future confrontations and potentially increased viewer engagement.

By the numbers:

• This marks the second time Punk has cost McIntyre the World Heavyweight Championship, following WrestleMania 40
• The storyline traces back to at least January 2024, when McIntyre allegedly injured Punk at Royal Rumble

What they’re saying:

“I loved the finish. It made heat. Heat is a necessary part of the equation,” Bischoff said on his “83 Weeks” podcast. “It’s storytelling. It’s characters. It’s so important to have a heel that people really hate.”

The big picture:

This latest development in the Punk-McIntyre rivalry demonstrates WWE’s commitment to long-term storytelling and character development, potentially leading to a marquee match-up at a future premium live event.

What’s next:

McIntyre has already retaliated, leaving Punk bloodied and hospitalized after an attack on “WWE SmackDown” in Chicago. Fans can expect this feud to continue escalating in the coming weeks.
