Re: Which Full timer has threatened Cena's top face spot the most between 2006 and no
Bryan, Orton, Hardy, Batista and Punk in that order. Punk was never as over as any of the other guys I listed. That's why they were willing to turn him heel less than a year after his run. Watch a random episode of RAW in 2011 or 2012 and look at his crowd reactions. Nowhere near what Hardy was getting, Orton was getting in 2010, or Bryan is getting now. Plus, he's just not as good of a babyface as the others. He's generally unlikeable. I'm sure the WWE knew he had no chance of surpassing Cena.
