IIRC it was only EVER used on air when Punk promoted anti-cena stuff during the contract signing for SummerSlam. Even then it was incredibly edited and only featured 2 or so minutes of footage. The full video was never played or acknowledged though.

I wouldn't say it would be ego and such that would cause it. Punk is less valuable an asset overall compared to Cena anyway, so it would be less detrimental to allow full-on Rock to go in promos against him. Not to mention Punk is much more free as a heel and better as a heel on the mic and would work well as Rock's antagonist imo, any real harsh burying comments he could brush off a bit easier with an arrogance and in-your-face mic style he is currently working, unlike Cena's complete good-guy style which would leave more chinks in the armour as he would be unable to respond as well due to the "hustle-loyalty-respect" stuff.

I doubt they will do full shoot style though. It is dangerous to characters, especially with someone as gifted as Rock on the mic delivering it.

I call dibs on GTS, Pepsi Plunge and running knee in corner. I am sure Sheamus will take the rest.
