Re: Official The Rock vs. CM Punk Discussion Thread
Hmmm... so it is looking like they are going to let Punk continue his title reign past the Rumble? Ugh. Punk keeping the title for almost 500 days is not going to revive the title's relevance nor is it going to help Punk get over. People are only watching the Rumble to see if Rock is going to win, if Rock loses and the rumored Wrestlemania matches are the same, then after Wrestlemania you are going to have a lot of wrestling fans give up on the WWE. This is a fact. Hell, you might even have some people done on the spot the moment he loses.
First, you deliver no Austin on both milestone shows. Secondly, you fill the majority of the year with pointless matches and terribly written characters. Lastly, you let someone from this Era break records that not even better wrestlers from other eras had the chance to sniff. I know Punk fans hate to hear this but he has turned people away from wrestling. If it was my favorite wrestler and he was delivering the same results as Punk, ratings and attendance wise, while he was champ then I would want him to drop the title to the Rock. Punk is a really good wrestler and mic worker but they have already ruined any possibility of him being more over than he is by booking him so weakly. In fact, they have sabotaged everyone on the entire roster with their stupid booking, dumb storylines, and horrible promos. If they are just going to book the part timers semi properly then you might as well let them hold the hardware because it means more in their hands, even if it is an afterthought in their feuds.
