Re: Summerslam Buyrate - Lowest Since 1997
Even though Cena vs Bryan main evented, the main draw was Lesnar vs Punk. In retrospect we see that the Bryan push was serious because he beat Cena 100% clean but at the time, how could one be sure that Bryan wasn't just another challenger for Cena to overcome? Lesnar is a good draw even if he's lost some of his appeal since they killed his aura with the losses but he obviously needs a big name to work with him for the numbers to deliver. Punk is clearly not on that level and if it wasn't already obvious, it's clear that he can't draw.
