CM Punk has nothing..........or has something which Rock/Austin/Hogan already had.
If WWE is smart they won't risk again on CM Punk,his shoot promos only appeal to the SMARKS and not the casual fans.WWE badly needs a next megastar who has something Rock/Austin/Hogan didn't have.
the only problem is, nobody on the current roster has something new and innovative that the holy trinity have not tried or done, i still think if cena turns heel he could be the next megastar but the chances of him turning are very slim and the chances of it being as big or anywhere near as impact-full as hogan's heel turn are 1 to a million.

It makes sense if we were talking about 2006 lol. That isn't the case anymore though. I can't speak for Shawn because he doesn't really get asked about it all that much but in any recent interview where HHH is asked, all he does is sing Cena's praises, hell, he even does it on the show too. I don't think either of them have a problem with him being the top guy. Whether they prefer him to Punk or vice versa I don't really know but if I had to guess I wouldn't say so. Just my 2 cents.

I think the boat for John Cena megastardom has long sailed. He will never be any bigger than he already is.

Well I'm not saying they have a problem with Cena being the top guy anymore, just that I could see why they would rather Punk have the record breaking reign over the 'Reign of Doom', or whatever they're calling it these days.

Re: Official The Rock vs. CM Punk Discussion Thread

@K.W.H well look at it this way what has cena done or what can he do that the holy trinity didn't, the only thing i can think of is the rapper gimmick which could have been megastar level if they played it right but i guess that ship has sailed a long time like you said.
EDIT: according to some guy it's called the 400 day snooze fest...

Re: Official The Rock vs. CM Punk Discussion Thread

I stopped watching after WM 22 and didn't watch again until Punk turned heel in the summer of '09, so I missed that whole reign. From what I've read, I did not miss all that much.

Nobody could touch those three and the only one that can even try to match them will still fall short of them.

Cena's heel turn can be huge if WWE plans it perfectly.But Cena ain't going to start another boom period.It may turn out to be more entertaining for a while before WWE screws it up.

that's the problem...The wwe will screw everything up, cena heel turn could be great for 1 year at the most then it will all get screwed up, but there is a small chance in him becoming a megastar if he turns... or that's at least what I think.

WWE still have the ace in the hole of a John Cena heel turn if they ever decide to make it happen. It could be a legitimate game changer for the entire company if they do it right and catapult the next big babyface star into megastardom by putting him over heel Cena. It could be that or it could just be a HUGE moment that doesn't really change anything. We won't know until it happens. I tend to side with the former tbh. I think that a heel Cena changes everything. It creates a spot for a new top babyface star and a medium in which to put over a lot of new guys as babyfaces as they go over a strong and credible heel a la Triple H from 03 - 06. I don't know if that will make him any bigger than what he already is but it is possible.

Who knows lol. I think Punk's reign has lasted so long because there is literally nobody else who can really hold it right now. None of the guys he faced were ever going to take it off him so they just kept it on him and decided to run with it. That's just my own personal opinion though.
