Cutting a Shoot Promo To Get Over

Re: Stone Cold responds to CM Punk insulting him in Raw
First of all, heels are supposed to ignore if they are being hypocritical.
Secondly Punk has mainly feuded with Cena, who is to him what Rock was to Austin in terms of wrestling competitors. Austin's biggest feud wasn't with Rock though, so Punk actually did have a point.
Austin would let him speak as much as needed to have a great show. This isn't real, it's scripted entertainment, and Austin didn't pick Punk to perhaps be his opponent in a final match just to have a one-sided feud.
And if anything the "what?" thing won't look too good on a guy like Punk. That works when the opponent isn't telling the truth but if he does it comes across as a lack of being able to handle it intelligently. That's why the promo work can be interesting, because Austin will have to play it right not to come across as the unintelligent of the two.
Rock or Vince was Austin's biggest feud from an all around standpoint. His best feud though, is pretty subjective.
