Unfortunately for Punk, every time he's been given the main event slot ahead of Cena and whatever feud he's in, the ratings have been disappointing. The WWE basically gave the "IWC" their wish on December by putting Punk, Bryan and Ryder together in the main event and the ratings gain was disappointing. Punk (& Bryan) also got the main event slow a few weeks ago in a match also involving Tensai and the ratings again disappointed.
Sad to say, whatever Cena is involved in still brings the most ratings even when he's in a boring, irrelevant feud with the Big Show for the millionth time. But since the show almost completely sucks, I don't even feel bad for WWE. They've deserved it for a while now after one month of shitty shows.
