Re: Official The Rock vs. CM Punk Discussion Thread
Before I comment, Punk and Rock are my two favourites of all time, so I have a fairly impartial view on the match...
That said, the reaction of the Punk fans is hilarious. To see people sulking that his 430+ day regin ended at the hands of an all-time-great just makes me question how they saw his regin when he picked up the belt at SS11. If you'd have told a Punk fan, or Punk himself, that his reign would last all of 2012, see him go over the likes of Cena, Jericho, Kane, Show, Bryan, Ryback, Dolph, Del Rio etc, and his reign would culminate in a singles match with The Rock neither he nor the fans would have believed you.
People are acting like Punk just lost a retirement match in 15 seconds to Doink. Just because his historical reign is over, doesn't mean the story is over. Punks program with Rock will continue into Elmination Chamber before he more than likely goes on to challenge the streak.
The Rock | Undertaker | Triple H | Chris Jericho | Stone Cold
CM Punk | Dean Ambrose | Mark Henry | Daniel Bryan | Dolph Ziggler
