I can only imagine the fire under your ass, when Cena wins the title at mania.
I couldn't give a fuck if he does. The mistake is the match even HAPPENING, I don't care which one of them wins.
I have a reason to believe if Austin has been signed that he'll put over Punk. I've heard him on record proposing the idea of putting him over in a similar way that Bret Hart put Austin over, and that was well before the match started becoming more realistic. Since it has, I have read countless articles and "reports" that mention that Austin has already agreed on a finish to put Punk over (now these are dirsheets but that's the only info we got). Also Rock/Cena, Lesnar, etc. Will sell the PPV
All of this is just speculation. Austin can even say he wants to put Punk over, but things change. When he goes into negotiations, all that shit goes on the window. Vince may not even LET Punk beat Austin.
Punk/Austin will be a hit with the crowd in New 'fuckin' York, no matter where it is on the card, so of course it could go on last and have just as much crowd support as cena/rock.
You can think that all you want, but I know WWE. They WON'T put Austin over Rock, and they WON'T put Punk over Cena. It's just not happening. Rock vs Cena is a bigger match. That's the fans fault, not Austin and Punk's, but the fact remains.
I will not accept this match as ANYTHING but a WrestleMania main event. And by main event, I don't mean a midcard match like "End Of An Era", I mean a real, genuine, bonafide, closing main event. That is completely unrealistic to shoot for, and if it's not the main event, it wastes everyone's time, it taints Austin's legacy and it holds Punk back from the main event he needs to get for another year. This match cannot be allowed to happen, it's a time bomb waiting to go off.
