CM Punk at the WrestleMania press conferenceTAKING THE MIC, 1:32 p.m.
The opening shot of WrestleMania week is fired from the Eden Roc Hotel in Miami, where WWE Champion CM Punk collects his thoughts in front of rows of unoccupied seats prior to a live press conference streamed around the globe on WWE.com, YouTube and Facebook. Just moments before media of all kinds converge upon the event, he stands before one of his signature weapons – a microphone – leading to perhaps some consternation by WWE officials on hand. Notwithstanding the concern of corporate types, Punk assures that there will be no censorship today.

“They know that if they tell me not to do something, I’ll do it,” the champion states, bold yet honest. “They just cross their fingers and hope for the best.”

Chris Jericho tweetsDIARY … VIA TWITTER?, 1:41 p.m.
Miles away from Miami (and his opposition), Chris Jericho poses in front of a mirror and snaps a picture in response to his bookish foe’s comic-related Twitter musings. While surfing through his latest batch of tweets, CM Punk absorbs the long distance insults.

“While you're reading comic books, I'm training and getting ready to own you.. @CMPunk,” reads The Straight Edge Superstar.

Jericho’s message to his 589,000-plus followers comes several hours before the press conference he was originally scheduled to attend. When you’re the first-ever Undisputed Champion in WWE history, your schedule can change, it seems. Thus, the WWE Title bout portion of the live streamed media event is left in the tattooed hands of Punk.

CM Punk responds to Chris Jericho's tweetDIAMOND CUT ABS?, 1:50 p.m.
While The Voice of the Voiceless readies himself to be heard by the legions of WWE Universe members worldwide, his opponent is nowhere in sight. His nemesis is “at home, washing his tights,” as Punk suggests before offering a more substantial retort to an ab-flexing Chris Jericho’s tweet hours earlier.

“[Chris] does DDP Yoga and that’s not even real yoga,” Punk teases. “This isn’t a front on Diamond Dallas Page – nice guy and all that, but whatever. Jericho’s [not here because he's] got a voice coach so he can sing in his rotten band.”
