What I don't get is that Punk is a bad draw but why do the fans cheer him and I don't care about stuff like that and didn't check it but as far as I know Punk is one of the top merch sellers of the company. It just dosn't make any sense to me.
In his peak earlier this year, Zack Ryder was also going crazy with merch sales and every arena popped for him but guess what... when he had a segment in the main event spot... he LOST viewers and did the lowest final quarter rating since 1997!!! Crowd reaction and merch sales don't necessarily translate to being a draw that brings interest to the product.
Let me ask you guys this, do you base your favorite wrestlers on guys who can/can't draw? I mean it seems like some of you that's all you care about, whether the guy draws or not. Some of my favorite Wrestlers like Orton, Punk, ADR are looked at on these forums as anti-draws, and is that a reason to just flat out "Hate" the guys because the Mass audience seems to dislike them?
You're an Orton fan? Lol, because I could've sworn that guessing by the posts you've made about him, it seems like you are the opposite of a fan. And your current sig also speaks for itself.

It was a crazy month of news for Kurt, every day it was ON and OFF, the doctors wouldn't allow him, he doesn't care, a scary chance to get paralyzed for the rest of his life or that it's going to be his last match. When they talked about all that, the earliest date for his return, if at all, was 2004. But instead he did an alternative surgery and came back in 4 months. Kurt gained a new level of respect from every fan with his performance at WM19 and the fact that he even wanted to wrestle, he showed his heart and passion for the industry like no other to the point where he even risk the ability to live a normal life just to perform in the biggest match of the year.
Ah, thanks for the clarification. I really wondered why they kept teasing Lesnar vs Angle every week on the RTWM and it seems like their plans were messed up by Angle's neck injury. Still, I gotta give all my respect to Kurt because he put on one hell of a match despite having a bad neck then came back two months later as good as before. His run as Brock's friend was pretty nice and resulted in some funny segments, specially the one with the milk thing.
