To be fair, they weren't ever booked as something important either. Also, they should have never, and I mean NEVER, had him go against Nash and HHH. That stole all his thunder, pushed him out of that badass rebel role, and made him just another face champion. Before that Summerslam run in, Punk was white hot. If Nash had never interfered and HHH never have beaten him, we might already have that next megastar. As it is... this Rock feud could finally get him over. He's starting to get those massive cheers again and he's showing an edge that just hadn't been there for over a year.
Thanks for the wonderful memories Ultimate Warrior... happy you got to be recognised as the legend you are before you went. Rest in peace
