DUDE WTF man they more than deserve it. The thing is it's not a money drawing match. They've worked their asses of for that spot but it should not be the main event. They should not be there due to the fact that it's bad for business in terms of money drawing power wise

He's not going to close the biggest show with a match like that.

He's always been about larger than life spectacles. Rock vs Cena.... That's what he's looking for.



How is he gonna promote a match between punk and Bryan? Who's gonna go on a the today show? Tiny Bryan who will be shorter than the female hosts? Scrubby looking punk with the bad tattoos who isn't much bigger?


WWE is a brand and has an image. They need someone in the main Event who is marketable to non wrestling fans.... Bryan and Punk aren't those guys.


It's just the facts.
This is a very logical post. The reality is that Wrestlemania is an event that is promoted to entice new fans, promote their product and get casuals invested more so into the product. That is not done by two wrestlers who appeal to a more special interest niche than the casual mainstream wrestling fan and the potential new fan are interested in. I don't think that anyone is saying they are not good technical wrestlers in the ring. However, the WM main event is for larger than life characters who both have some longterm relevance to the upper mid card and/or main event scene in the WWE.

Re: Punk vs Bryan for Unified Title at Mania XXX

Since they are unifying the main titles they should bring back the Cruiserweight Championship and let Punk & Bryan fight over that.

They don't have what it takes to Main Event Mania.

Because what it takes to Main Event Mania in 2013 is mainstream appeal and Bryan in particular doesn't have that.


Punk could main event, but not without Cena to handle the media stuff. Bryan probably couldn't.... Unless, and that's a big unless, his appearance on total divas creates some sort of buzz... And even then, it's would have to be against Cena

Punk vs Bryan just doesn't work.

As a fan of both Punk and Bryan I don't care if there is any hardware involved in the feud.

There doesn't have to be a title in the line for me to want to see Punk and Bryan have a killer 25 minutes at Mania, built up on emotions and story, not predetermined gold.

There's the point.. All you're really limited when it comes to evaluate what is marketable or not.

A match like Cena vs Rock is BIGGER than usual, a match between Punk and Bryan still perfectly to book for the unified title, because they the most over/populars guys of this generation. When you know that two wrestlers are going to steal the show, promoting the match is.. Work easy.

Bullshit. Around the world of Pro Wrestling, Bryan Danielson is one of the biggest names in all of pro wrestling, and everyone knows who he is in the WWE. A Bryan/Punk match as the main event of Wrestlemania can most certainly attract the attention of people who would have never even considered ordering Wrestlemania. As for attention outside of Pro Wrestling? Who gives a fuck, leave that job to the other people in other matches, that's what THEY are there for. One match should not be the only thing you rely on to bring in numbers, and to say a Bryan/Punk main event would result in WWE losing a large sum of buyers is one of the most idiotic things you could possibly say.

Re: Punk vs Bryan for Unified Title at Mania XXX

That would be very anti climatic for wrestlemania especially one as big as XXX, I respect DB and respect punk even more but a CM Punk vs. Danie Bryan ME does not sell PPV or put fans in seats. An upper midcard feud seems more suitable, maybe for the IC strap to bring some prestige back to it.
