idk if Punk could be as big of a star as Cena because of the look and certain superstar aspects Cena has, but at the same time I think if WWE pushed Punk as hard as they've pushed Cena he could probably do better among a certain demo. I think Cena still reaches the masses more than Punk. I also think that if WWE pushed Punk as hard as they pushed Cena it would hurt some of his appeal anyway.
Cena is a mainstream icon, Punk is a cult icon.
Cena's not an icon at all, he's just a top star. He's a clown who has less edge than Barney the dinosaur. Hogan, Austin and Rock are icons, people laugh at Cena, they make fun of him, they boo him for ruining their product. Everybody over the age of 12 fucking hates the prick. He's to wrestling what Justin Bieber is to music.
