This Is the Best Angle in History (Punk, Trips, ComiCon)

So yeah, WWE has a presence at the big big HUGE ZOMG San Diego Comic Convention, which is recognized as ComiCon amongst the nerd community. Triple H, Bret Hart, Rey Mysterio and Brian Gewirtz were all there. According to reports, so was CM Punk. Guess which one showed up uninvited? Yep, it was the erstwhile WWE Champion. As reported by Matt Fowler in the above linked article, the WWE is doing angles at venues outside of television.

Punk showed up with the Spinner Belt and confronted Trips over the tournament to crown a paper Champion in his stead and why Zack Ryder wasn't getting TV time. Trips told him to give him a call, to which Punk insinuated that Stephanie already had his number. Implied sexual relations are the best ones.

When the video surfaces, I'll be sure to post it, but man, they are really kicking this angle off with a bang, aren't they? Seriously, this could very well be the first viral mainstream wrestling angle in history, and I for one wholly approve of it.

ETA: Here's the video!
