Re: REAL heels vs IWC heels
The OP is right to a point.
Not about Punk and his fans being a cancer and all that, cuz that's grossly untrue, but about Heels existing to put over Faces. That is the ESSENCE of wrestling. That's what it's about, and to argue otherwise is foolish.
I mean, if you don't believe me than all you need to do is look at the turn Punk has taken for this feud with The Rock.
Until now, Punk has towed the line between being a tweener and a full fledged heel. His character, while pompous and arrogant, has always had the aura of "He's telling the truth, he's right, he's the voice of the voiceless."
It wasn't until last Monday that he actually attacked the fans in a meaningful way and said "Yeah, I'm the bad guy." Before, it was always "I'm not the bad guy, it's (insert topic here) that is the real problem." It's been that way since he started his turn and just now has it finally switched.
CM Punk is finally a true heel and he needs to be to play the folly to The Rock, who is undoubtedly the face in this feud. That is the essence of wrestling there. And it has made this whole thing a lot more interesting, much more so than Cena/Rock (even though I enjoyed that program a lot and the match at WM) mainly because both Cena and Rock where faces at the time. Wrestling is always better when there's a clear face and a clear heel.
