Downplaying Rock for playing one would be the same as downplaying Taker as well. These are all characters, so Punk is a bit silly there. But your bolded part can apply to Austin too. "Comes out, says his catchphrases, beats someone up, drinks beer" Wash rinse repeat. How you didn't acknowledge or see that that is beyond me. Might be because you havent seen Austin in a while and he is more missed at the moment or something. Still Rock/Austin are great and entertaining and people eat it up every time.

Also, if WWE put Austin in that same bs and silly situation they had Rock in with Cena this year, I dont think Austin would have made it interesting either. Cena calling Austin Steven, smiling in his face and so on. Would have turned out just the same.
That doesn't concur with his point therefore it does not matter.
