Re: Official The Rock vs. CM Punk Discussion Thread
I suppose Paul Roma has a point. Punk is smaller or doesn't have the look of all the guys he's faced recently from Cena to Ryback to Rock...so yeah it is kind of a "how is this guy winning?" kind of thing.
Of course the 'E hasn't been really creative with his escapes. The triple threat outs (2 of those), the interfering referee and The Shield (twice). The only other out he had was the draw at NOC.
I think Punk's "look" is conducive to that style of booking. He doesn't have to look dominant or strong because he can easily and more effectively look cunning. I don't see why a guy built like Sheamus or the Big Show would ever need to cheat to win, he's huge! He can overpower 80-90% of his opponents, no need for run-ins or anything. Its basic booking honestly, a heel doesn't have to be cowardly.
