Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread
Why is everyone complaining about him talking about Miz? He's over it now, he's just talking about his frustration with the company then. It's the same as him talking about the SES, he's just saying one of the reasons he was pissed at the company. Plus, he's sort of justified. If it had come out at that time that Punk was pissed, people would be sucking his dick. If you look at the storyline at that point, it made more sense for Punk to face Cena at 'Mania. Punk led Nexus and was feuding with Cena and never really had a blowoff. If you would've asked anybody on this forum who was the best heel in WWE at this point, the consensus would be Punk. But if people need a reason to bitch so be it..
Not really. At that time, Punk was not being pushed as the number one heel, it was the Miz and Nexus was as good as dead. The Miz had the title, not CM Punk. The story had more to do with Cena and the Rock anyway then it had to do with the title and Miz was an afterthought. If Punk was in that position with the Rock returning and outshining everyone, everyone on here would be bitching about Punk not getting the spotlight. Punk would also be bitching about the Rock stealing the spotlight from him.
He was better off not being in that position at that time.
