But to draw the masses, you need that imaginary IT factor and the look of a star to be able to captivate the people, it's the same "turn heads" presence, Punk is not that guy and with everything they gave him, everything you can give to a wrestler for over 6 years, will never be that guy.
Kinda agree about Punk, though his storylines can draw. About the turn heads though, Bryan has consistently been doing good numbers since Smackdown. Hopefully, he becomes a dependent TV draw. He just has to be entertaining.
Hard to believe Bryan becoming the turn heads guy, maybe he just has IT.
