Fact? fact is that Punk is the most irrelevant WWE champion in wrestling history and made the title so meaningless that WWE were so desperate they went to Johnny Ace to save them the business. Punk will never be bigger than Orton in any way, that's a fact. Hell, Orton drew more money in 2009(when he was the undisputed top draw in the industry)than Punk will make in 10 careers, and put on more great matches in one month than Punk did in his entire, 7 years forgettable run. That's real comedy.
Bryan Alvarez pointed out on a funny thing during Punk's horrendous promo on RAW, "I'm going to beat Bryan and save the title and then watch Cena kick your ass" which means that he already knows how much of a failure he is and the fact that Ace is main eventing a PPV over him
