Re: Whether you like him or not CM Punk is now carrying a lot of the company weight.
as a fan, i don't care about the ratings - i leave that to the suits to clammer over, even though they put far too much emphasis on them. i, for one, am proud to have a legitimately good wrestler as wwe champion who refuses to play the 'cool heel' and instead brings it old school. i think a bret hart comparison is fair and deserving here.
you are what you love, not who loves you.
