I'm shocked at that. I mean, that's fucking high for 3 hours and not being a special or anything like that. The People's champ bringing in DA PEOPLEZ.
And technically it should get higher because Trips and Taker have yet to make an appearance. Obviously, putting the title on a part-timer did the trick.
I am not shocked. Lots of people wanted Punk to drop the title because they were not feeling him. I know his marks don't want to hear that but it is the truth. Plus The Rock is holding the title again after 10 years.
In the end, fans are rejecting these PG Era stars. Vince royally screwed this era's stars over by continually dangling that "Attitude Era carrot" in front of the masses. Not doing a PG Era vs. Attitude Era storyline to accompany the video game was an egregious error on his part. If he does go down the "rumored Wrestlemania" path and have John Cena defeat The Rock, without turning heel, it will cripple this company beyond repair. Right now fans are only holding on to see their favorites compete in dream matches and scenarios, and if he doesn't do anything fast, as soon as the part-timers stop being able to perform or become disinterested, this company will be in serious trouble.
