Am I the only one who can't view Punk as a heel?

I dont know why, I use to be able to. When he was in Straight-Edge Society, and after his heel turn on Jeff Hardy, I was like ' Yeah I can see him as a Heel ' but when he became so popular, shifted alot of merchandise, sucked up the crowd, and faced nearly every single heel possible, he put himself in the ' Good guy ' category and I just cant seem to view him as a ' Bad guy '.

I think I just got way to use to Punk making corny jokes, beating the sh*t out of people like Jericho/Ziggler/Bryan/Del Rio, being kind to AJ Lee, massive crowd pops, and sucking up to the crowd cheers.

His 'White' Best in the World top, with his " IT'S CLOBBERINN TIME ! " is definetly the best babyface Punk. Also not along ago he was being screwed by John Laurintis - who was also a top villian. I really need to get use to Punk as a heel, because right now - it doenst feel right for me.

Punk is the definition of a Heel.

Like Jericho and Triple H, CM Punk is a born heel.

Cm Punk as a face was okay but it wasnt awesome, he made some good promos but most promos came off as Cena-esque. CM Punk works best when he has an attitude, when he's bitching my god can he bitch. CM Punk and Mick Foley stand off was one of the best this year, If foley wa sin better shape I would welcome a feud between the two. But I digress. Punk is a natural heel I think most people would say he came off a little corny at times asa face.

Anyone who is opposed to Cena will never be viewed as a heel by a large % of wrestling fans. It's one of the WWE's ongoing problems which they just refuse to address.

Re: Am I the only one who cant view Punk as a heel?

I think you're looking at Punk's previous history. He has always put on the best matches despite being the WHC or WWE champ; and he has gotten respect. So him suddenly saying he doesn't get respect, even though he has had the title for 311 days (311!!! awesome band), had tons of press, been on lots of talk shows, had shirts made for him...it seems wrong. Like, it's so obvious this is his forced heel turn it seems stupid. So, he really isn't a heel because he is completely faking his emotions in the matter.

He wants to be able to be an asshole and get cheered for it, which is what most of the IWC is doing. so, you're not far off OP. It's more so he is against Cena, so he is heel.

Re: Am I the only one who cant view Punk as a heel?

It's confusing. He was bland as a superface, but I find it impossible to see him as a heel against the corporate kiss ass, beyond stale corny non selling wooden undergog who never loses and annoying moral throwback named John Cena.

Re: Am I the only one who cant view Punk as a heel?

Quite the opposite actually. I find it hard to view him as a face and when he was a face, it didn't click for me because he's too much of an asshole lol. He just doesn't have a likable personality at all if you ask me and he isn't somebody I personally want to get behind and cheer for. That's why he got booed when he started attacking HHH and that's why they had to cut his claws off when he did turn face, because that aspect of his character wasn't working. They got rid of that, neutered him and he got cheered. He's much better suited to being a heel because he can do all the shit he has been doing and get booed for it instead of forcing himself to be a happy smiley Cena-lite type of character who simply isn't him.

Exactly this. And his heel character will get him cheered, one of the reasons I think they are putting Heyman with him to be honest, b/c that guy is a heat magnent as well and the WWE wants Punk to be their #1 heel.
