That right there is a moment CM Punk cannot deliver. Cena defeating the Rock at WM 29 just is a bigger accomplishment than ending Punk's 500 day reign.
Complain about it all you want but by the time Wrestlemania comes Cena would have spent 18 months away from the belt and WWE wants to right that. CM Punk's 400 day reign really is only there because WWE wanted Cena v Rock at WM 29 to happen.
Punk's got to move aside for the actual face of the company. Complain about it all you want.
As for creating stars. John Cena's got a much better track record than Punk. If Ryback were to get a clean victory over Cena at Summerslam that's a bigger moment than ending Punk's 2,000 day reign. Once again sorry but we all know who the actual face of the company is.
Too bad the fans will shit on Cena winning at Wrestlemania. Yes he is "the man" but who does WWE believe will buy is redemption storyline in the slightest when Cena has laughed off pretty much everything that has happen to him in the last year.
