And secondly Cena is losing his star power.
Tbh Cena and Punk both have a lot in common. Their characters are stale and boring and they have been forced down peoples throats for years. They are on TV more then anyone else.
If these numbers don't show Vince things need to change then none will.
You do know that Punk's segment was grouped in with the Alicia Fox/Eve Torres match right? That's a guaranteed loss so Punk's segment would have to gain a helluva lot to make up for that and still end up with a 200000 gain. His portion of the quarter probably gained like 500000.
Mark for: Daniel Bryan Danielson, CM Punk, Bray Wyatt, The Shield, The Kings of Wrestling (Hero and Cesaro), Damien Sandow, Austin Aries, Kane, Brock, Solomon Crowe, Kevin Steen, Big E, Enzo Amore, Sami Zayn, Christian.
All time: Austin, Rocky, Masked Kane, Kenta Kobashi, Vader, Mysterio, Mr. Perfect, Bossman, Taz, Jericho, Bam Bam Bigelow, Scott "Punch Line" Steiner, and Angle.
