Sorry but that's bullshit and you know it. To think Who is champ does not matter is one of the worst defences for Punk ever.
Its like saying whoever the boxing champ is doesn't effect the popularity of the card. People buy ppvs due to the main event and that is fact. Whether that be boxing, mma,or wrestling.
If Rock/Taker/SCSA/HBK or any of those guys were champ the ratings would go up big time. The reason for that is because those guys are popular. People want to watch them. They are draws. Fuck even Rock just singing had a 3.8 rating. Now imagine the rating when/if he is champ?
People need to accept that the current roster including the champ is mostly very under average guys. Being champ means a lot its just right now the champ isn't that interesting.
