On Monday, “pipe bomb” was trending worldwide on Twitter because it marked the anniversary of the excellent promo done by CM Punk in the closing moments of an episode of WWE Raw after costing John Cena a win in a tables match in the main event.
Fans have been celebrating this promo, which many consider being one of the best promos in the history of the pro wrestling business.
BT Sport has put out a tweet asking fans to name the best three promos in the history of the business. Punk saw this tweet and gave his own list of what he would have.
This is where he listed Hard Times by WWE Hall of Famer Dusty Rhodes followed by the pipebombshell promo from wife and former Divas Champion, AJ Lee, and finally, the Austin 3:16 promo by WWE Hall of Famer Steve Austin.
Punk wrote the following:
“Hardtimes, pipebombshell, Austin 3:16. Remarkable @TheAJMendez is the only woman on this list. She is so good!”
