There is absolutely no part of The Rock Vs Cena that will be better than The Rock Vs CM Punk.
For me The Rock Vs Cena highlighted how inept John Cena is a top guy and is simply there because of US Army, Casual, Kids fans. Because Cenas promos, mic skills and in ring ability for the entire 1 year feud was terrible. Cena proved that he couldn't hold his own with greats of the past The Rock proved he still had it.
Sure, Cena has been past "stale" point but no matter what you say or want to believe, it remains a fact that Cena was , at one time, pushed by the fans.
Why do you think most of the IWC had a hard on for the guy ( oh yes, they did,at one time) and wanted to see him feud with The Rock ? Because Cena was on fire and a great mic worker. He still is. just saddled as the ultimate babyface of the company.
Punk and Cena are both great mic workers but also two completly different characters. Would most like Punk's promos if he was saddled as the penultimate babyface? We already had people groaning when he went through his plain face phase.
Punk is great on mic there's no denying it. But, I really find it annoying that just because Cena is a stale cheesy babyface, no one remembers how he made his way to the top, in the first place. Short term memory at it's best.

Where Cena/Rock seemed to be more about not tarnishing the other guy too much, this looks to be a feud with the gloves off. The intensity is much higher than Cena/Rock, but it obviously lacks the enormity due to the drop in star power.
