CM Punk continues to trend

While we cannot fully determine the merits of a superstars worth to World Wrestling Entertainment, Internet stats cannot be dismissed.

This blog has seen a steady diet of views on a weekly basis, but the most searched superstar according to Blogger stats is without a doubt CM Punk.

Take a blog from June 28, 2011 for example.  CM Punk - Blurring the lines has had an abundance of views in the past week alone.  This post has received 87 views in that span.  Anytime the keywords are checked through this site, "CM Punk" has been searched through Google more than anything else.

There is no question that currently CM Punk has put himself in a position to have a long run in the WWE.  His "shoot" promo from the June 27th, 2011 edition of Raw had completely shaken things up and made him more marketable than he had ever been.  The promo itself was a precursor to CM Punk being a consistent main event wrestler as well as introducing John Laurinatis (who Punk called out in the promo) as an on-screen foe to many of the top stars in the company.  Punk has also consistently sold more merchandise than he had previously and has been featured in many of the company's top angles.

It may only be a matter of time before CM Punk is the WWE attraction and one can only wonder how long it will be before the WWE pulls the trigger and makes him the consistent focal point of all of their programming.
