McIntyre Reportedly Falls Out Favor With Management, Officials Happy With Punk

source: Wrestling Observer Newsletter

— Drew McIntyre has reportedly fallen out favor with management as he’s gained a reputation of being high maintenance not to mention that he’s failed to get over to the degree of his push. Initial plans called for McIntyre’s undefeated streak to result in a World Heavyweight Title reign. Instead, Jack Swagger ended up in the spot and McIntyre was left to feud with Matt Hardy.

— CM Punk won points with management for his effort in getting the crowd back into his Over the Limit match with Rey Mysterio after the bout was awkwardly halted so a trainer could treat his head wound. When the audience began to turn against the match, Punk called an audible by attacking Mysterio in an effort to get things back on track.

— Sunday’s Over the Limit pay-per-view at the Joe Louis Arena in Detroit, Michigan drew 11,000 paid fans with a live gate of approximately $675,000.
