Re: Sheamus or Punk - Who is the more credible champ?

Punk in my opinion has gone to shit since this latest heel turn and sadly like Cena said just moans on and on about respect but then i guess we shouldn't be surprised with all the things WWE staff are/are not allowed to say and do these days. I really try not to slate wrestlers for things that are not under their control but at some point they must surely speak up and comment on the way they are being portrayed. I've stopped watching WWE altogether at the moment because it's too painful and weirdly, it's the first time in a long time that i actually like both champions and can't complain about ridiculously short title reigns.
Yet somehow i can't stand to watch.....

Re: Sheamus or Punk - Who is the more credible champ?

I think Sheamus would have more credibility if he was booked right.

CM Punk is becoming very boring that I skip his segments, they bore me to tears and are predicatble. Sheamus' isn't that much better but they at least try to vary it a bit. Also, Sheamus fights on both Raw and Smackdown whereas CM Punbk sticks to the one show.

Looks wise is a no brainer. I would literally fight Punk if he started something with me and I didn't know who he was. If Sheamus harassed me in a bar I'd run to my truck and shoot him.
And he would probably kick your ass.

Body Builders are not manly at all. Real tough dudes do not have perfectly sculpted bodies. If Chuck Norris and Lou Ferrigno fought (when they were in their prime) my money's on the hairy dude with the beard. Harley Race could have handed Hogan and Warrior's asses to them on a silver platter.
Pretty much this. You gotta love those people who think if you're some muscle dummy that you can automatically fight.

Re: Sheamus or Punk - Who is the more credible champ?

Punk, I like Sheamus but I just don't think he has the IT factor to be the face of a brand. Orton needs to be the SD champion imo.
I loved Punk as a tweener, and didn't mind him as a face but hate this constant whinging angle atm but he is still the best in the world. *awaits hate*

Re: Sheamus or Punk - Who is the more credible champ?

Punk because he's had more variety of opponents for his defenses and Sheamus is always making jokes and totally no-sell the heel who he is working with. Having so many matches with Del Rio almost made me think that WWE were afraid to give him someone else for fear of Sheamus looking bad.

Batista / Trish Stratus / Chris Jericho / CM Punk / Kurt Angle / Alberto Del Rio
Seth Rollins / Randy Orton / Ryback / Luke Harper / Fandango
Cesaro / Bad News Barrett / Dolph Ziggler / Christian / Curtis Axel
Finn Bálor / The Vaudevillians / Tyler Breeze / Sami Zayn / Tye Dillinger
Alicia Fox / Natalya / Summer Rae / Sasha Banks / Rosa Mendes / Eva Marie
Was At Wrestlemania 25, 26, 27, 28 & 30!!!

Re: Sheamus or Punk - Who is the more credible champ?

I think the issue with Punk (and Bryan to an extent), is you really don't ever see them do any sort of power move ever, it's mostly just a lot of kicks mixed in with a few signature moves. They are fun to watch, but they are missing that ultimate warrior or Goldberg stuff where they just pick up a guy and toss him.

That being said, I think being good on the mic is just as important as the look, so IMO I have to go with Punk > Sheamus. With Sheamus, he kinda has a corny "bad boy" gimmick, I saw him a few months ago talking about getting pints with Teddy Long and saying something like "and as always, first one is on me"... come on, that just looks and sounds corny. Or when he Brogue kicked the camera.... they may as well have him come out with a backwards base ball cap.

The issue with Punk is that it's tough for him to get heat because almost everyone above the age of 15 universally likes him, and most of the stuff he says you can agree with, even as a heel lol. He literally has to do the most disrespectful thing ever each time he's in a city to get heat (like diss Bret Hart in Montral, beat up the King in Memphis, etc)... doesnt help that they booked him against Cena, whom the crowd hates. They really didn't have a face strong enough to go up against Punk tho.
