And I also loved the promo where he completely demolished Del Rio. It's also the last Punk promo I ever liked, which is also his last 'shoot' style one excluding the goofy three-way contract signing before TLC. Otherwise, I think he's overrated and extremely over-hyped and I simply find him unentertaining. I don't really have an automatic negative mind-set regarding him, it's just that a lot of his fans here are annoying, making me feel a bit better when I look like the devil's advocate.
Everyone gave credit to, and enjoyed Punk around his shoot time. It was a awesome promo followed by a great storyline that WWE ruined when Triple H had to ruin Punk's momentum by beating him at Night of Champions. Yes you praise Punk for some matches, like his OTL won, but who didn't? That was a classic. On the other hand, you're the only guy who gave his MITB match with Bryan a *1/2
rating. Compared with everyone else's ratings and opinions on that match, that was a ridiculous rating, but that's your opinion I guess. Your name came to mind when I wrote that post because in the last few months I haven't see you say any positive things about Punk. You say if he does something good, you'll give him credit? I think Punk's recent heel turn, with how it's been built well and slowly transforming every week has been good viewing. I'm not even that big of a Punk fan, but I've enjoyed it. He's always worked better as a heel, it's comes across as more natural, and him getting the best of Cena has been good, maybe not for you being that you're a Cena fan, but I'm aware that you really dislike Cena's stale character as well, so I thought you might of liked some of what's happened in the last month or so.
