I just can't comprehend how anyone could compare VM Punk to SCSA. Wait a minute, I'm starting to comprehend it: People who compare the two didn't watch wrestling back then, and see it through WWE's current retro Blu Ray releases. Yes, that's it.

In every aspect (except matches) Austin.. WWE completely dropped the ball with face Punk, plus it was dreadful to watch Punk being a face and sucking up tot he crowd and making poop jokes, glad they made him heel again.

Austin was a complete ass as a heel when he joined Vince, totally didn't see it coming and he pulled out all the stops to make you hate him, while some people say it wasnt the biggest highlight of his career as most fans still cheered him anyway, it certainly had a better impact.

As much of a punk fan I am, Austin's heel run in 2001 was far better. The two man power trip was fantastic especially. Punk is just a natural heel. Punk's face run wasn't bad until he started feuding with Bryan, and then it went downhill. The only really good feud he had in his face run this year was with Jericho.

I know Austin didn't like it and many fans aren't too keen on it but I thought that heel turn in Texas at WM was masterful. I loved the freshness of it and the interaction with Angle and Austin with, not against Vince was interesting to see. I liked Two Man Power Trip quite a bit.

Try being informed instead of just opinionated.

Lol. Yup you nailed it. I see you completely understood the point of the thread and didn't look at it as a typical "Who do you like better?" comparison. I value you're contribution and look forward to reading your responses in the future.

Re: Heel Austin 2001 vs. Babyface Punk 2012 - Who had the better run?

Hard to decide.

It was painful watching WWE try their best to get Austin over as a heel that year and fail. That said, 2001 was 2001. The roster and the all round feel of watching the show was a whole lot better than it was now. If HHH didn't get injured when he did it would of been interesting to see how the two man power trip would of developed. If you're a fan of 'rasslin than Punk's face run wins. Other than that it was poor bar Jericho.

I loved Austin in 2001.

Maybe it wasn't a financially good decision but Austin was pretty damn entertaining

Better matches
Better promos
Better segments

I actually liked Austin's character in 2001. It was entertaining to see him become more twisted and paranoid week by week.
