Re: Official The Rock vs. CM Punk Discussion Thread

If you're reading so much into the whole visual aspect of the who can kick who's ass, then I'm assuming you guys had that same point of view back when guys like HBK, Jericho, Benoit, Guerrero, and Bret Hart were all champion? I mean, they all squared off with guys much bigger than them, certainly more size difference than Punk and Rock. Hart beat Yokozuna, 'Taker, and Diesel. Jericho had beat Rock and Batista. Benoit had beaten HHH. Eddie Guerrero had beaten Brock Lesnar.

I would understand it more if you're talking about it from a storyline standpoint with Punk being booked awfully weak in his feud with Ryback. If this match was taking place after Punk finished his feud with Cena, I'm certain there'd be a different feel to it.
