I can totally relate to this section, which brings us into a bit of a grey area. Bryan/Punk was an awesome wrestling match, admittedly. It didn't need any build whatsoever. Who is to say that it wouldn't have been even more awesome with a more intriguing build, a la Punk/Cena from MITB 2011. Bryan/Punk might be the better wrestling
match, but I'd be surprised if a majority of viewers didn't hold Punk/Cena in higher regard.
That being said, I understand your stance and I want to avoid turning this into a debate on drawing as much as anyone. I'll leave it at that.
