Re: Official The Rock vs. CM Punk Discussion Thread

Cena should be the special guest referee for this match.

Cena should stay the fuck away from this entirely. I can see this going all the way to Mania, Cenaless.

I agree though that it shouldn't be all about that. With guys like Punk and others of smaller stature you have to make reference to their other attributes. They can be smart, meticulous, resilient, tenacious. They are thinkers, opportunists, whatever else fits in their arc. Punk has been champ for near 400 days, yet nearly no one buys him as going toe-to-toe with Rock physically with what's being presented so far in his reign. They have to present him as being Rock's better in some in-ring aspect, and that could well be with the backup he might have with The Shield, Maddox and Heyman.
I won't deny any of that. Obviously it's a lot more believable when Punk is beating guys like Ryback with the help of The Shield, and there's obviously a place for that in professional wrestling. I just think that people are reading too much into size ("Kicking ass" can mean any number of things. A 50/50 fight can be an ass kicking). Or maybe that's exactly what Punk wants, to further his delusional character.

I don't think there's been any problems with the views of Punk going toe-to-toe with the Rock until he feuded with Ryback. He beat everyone cleanly as a face and when he became heel and feuded with Cena he was still kicking out of multiple finishers when it came down to the match, and Cena couldn't beat him. He was very strong until the worst part of his reign which was the Ryback feud. Then it all went downhill and Punk was shown as the guy that couldn't get anything done on his own.

Re: Official The Rock vs. CM Punk Discussion Thread

'Your arms are too short to box with god' was clearly out of context.How can Punk refer to him as god?He doesn't have a god like heel character,he isn't cunning enough.And why is he doing the pipebomb stuff still?How can he say its unfair that Tyson Kid doesn't get a push when he himself is a heel and is consistently using unfair means to keep the possession of title?
I am sorry but CM Punk's promo was out of character.

What? First of all Punk's character is all about claiming that he's the best in the world and that he's entitled to everything because of that. Secondly he's a heel and heels are allowed, or even supposed, to have double standards.
