Re: Beginning to understand why they turned Punk into the complete opposite...
I think it was the right decision to turn him face after the shoot. The support he gained from that was huge even if some of the things he said were heelish. He might have been a great heel if they stayed on that route but they would've missed out on the opportunity for a new top babyface. Considering they only had one of those, it was the best way to go.
Agreed. Heel turns are always a bigger deal when the Superstar is coming off a significant face run.
However, people were cheering Punk's rebellious character, and not the babyface he ultimately turned into.
