Re: Which Full timer has threatened Cena's top face spot the most between 2006 and no
I'm not even a Bryan fan, but it's easy to see there hasn't been anyone over like he is right now.
Punk got some crazy pops even when side by side with Bryan. Possibly bigger that Bryan at the time. And it's crazy how people are still so enamored with him that they'll cheer for him even though he's gone.
I think it's telling that Cena gets loud pops against him. That tells me he's still the draw and the big deal. People are either rooting for him or against him but not his opponent.
In general, I think we've gone through a period of poor alternatives to Cena. The way he's been talking about the roster nowadays, he sounds like he wants to start putting guys over. But he also makes it sound like prior to this year, there really wasn't anyone worthy of putting over.
