Who gives a shit, who wants to see an inconsequential match between 2 people who've been handed everything?
CM Punk just had a one year reign. Guys like Rob Van Dam and Jeff Hardy held the title for one month. Talking about "handing everything". Why would I give a shit about Punk vs Cena when we know Punk will retain. (I'm talking about SS and TLC) Punk will now surpass Cena, he's the next Cena, heel version. People will get bored with Punk bragging about himself and insulting Jerry that almost died. At least change his gimmick first. An oh, you said who would give a shit?
Number of my friends that know the Rock: All of them
Number of my friends that know Cena: All of them
Number of my friends that know Punk: Maybe two.
It's Punk's fault he isn't famous as Cena. He's been in WWE for 5 years (Cena and the Rock became a face in just three and everybody knew about them) and still he's mostly unknown. And if anyone starts watching WWE now they're gonna have a tough time cheering for Punk's gimmick as he starts insulting everyone. For the fans that already watch WWE, crowd reaction speaks for itself - BOOOO. Punk ain't gonna prove himself (to the fans) as a heel. If you talk about the fact that he is a WWE champion - The Miz was. Was his feud with Cena more interesting than the Rock? No. I see Punk vs Cena same as Punk vs the Miz - dull, boring, and since I don't like both Cena, the Miz, and Punk, I don't know who to cheer for. Same today. At least I (and most of the crowd) can chant for Rock as he is at least one legitimate face of the company. Once when Punk's reign ends, I will tell you how much more will I enjoy the next feud over the WWE Championship.
Sorry for my grammar, I'm not from USA. Have a good day.
