Re: Money in the Bank ruining breakthrough moments
I want it gone, I've been saying it's become a cheap excuse to have somebody win the title but not build them up, it's detrimental to stars, WWE doesn't give a world title to any up and comer without it, etc. It's hurt the WWE immeasurably.
As for the point about CM Punk, I really don't think it ruined his breakthrough moment because he got another one. Yeah, his first world title was nothing special, but his real, GENUINE breakout moment was the first WWE Championship he won in Chicago, ironically enough at MITB 2011. Hot, hot, hot crowd, long match, real emotion, that saved his legacy. The WWE title is significantly above the WHC anyway, as we all know. Regardless, though, MITB has become an extraordinarily bad influence on the WWE, it's ruined Vince McMahon's thought process on how to book a first time world champion. Absolutely.
