Is Punk's best big enough to beat Big Show?

All the talk about the Triple Threat WWE Title Match has thus far centered on WWE Champion CM Punk and John Cena, with seemingly nobody giving much thought to Big Show… that is, until the giant flipped the script on Punk and Cena by knocking out both Superstars in the waning minutes of last Monday’s show.

Though The World’s Largest Athlete’s huge show of force officially established him as a threat to Punk’s title this Sunday, he will first have to engage in a gigantic battle of respect, kicking off Raw tonight at 8/7 CT in a match against the irate Second City Saint.

The WWE Champion is known not only for his tremendous skill and rebellious nature, but for having the ability to drop a dangerous pipe bomb at a moment’s notice. However, the earth-shattering WMD could speak louder than words for the second week in a row. If Punk hopes to walk into Los Angeles with enough momentum to overcome the incredible odds that a Triple Threat WWE Champion Match will bring, he must answer Show’s assault with a strong statement on WWE’s flagship show.

It’s also worth keeping an eye on John Cena tonight. Not only did he also suffer the wrath of Big Show last week on Raw, but as the Leader of the Cenation prepares to play such a huge role in The Biggest Event of the Summer, he will certainly look to establish his own momentum against his two adversaries.
