If Vince Russo was booker, and this was 14 years ago...

I could just imagine if Punk was having the storyline he has now and this was around 1998, and Russo was booker... you would just know this whole storyline would end up having Punk as the babyface, with a huge heel turn for Cena and a corporation stable of some-sort.

We find out that all the 'Good Guys' are really 'Bad guys' and that Punk was the 'Good guy' all along. Creating some corporation stable, with Punk trying to fight against it.

:') oh I wish booking was still over-the-top like this.

That's pretty much the case now, the only difference is that Punk insults the crowd for some reason and is portrayed as a bad guy in video packages and on commentary.

To be frank, I'd take Russo (and everything comes along with it, including the RUSSO SWERVES) over the current creative team.

People often forget that the guy did have his moments of genius. It'd really depend on which Russo you'd get though.

Good Russo would have an interesting scenario similar to the one OP explained.

Bad Russo would make CM Punk Vince McMahons biological son, have 2 of the divas in some sort of pregnancy storyline, have a who murdered [insert wrestler here] storyline, make Cena beat Undertakers streak and something like making a retired Booker T the WWE Champion

But Vince Mcmahon is no longer the "Filter" russo requires. Can HHH be that? doubtful.

The double turn really isn't that great of idea. Wasting John Cena's heel turn in October when Raw's bringing in 3.5 million viewers is a bad idea.

John Cena's heel turn is not going to be about elevating Punk. When John Cena turns heel he needs to dominate like Hogan did. There should be a vacuum to whose actually the number one face because the reality is there's just going to be a 1 heel.

Eventually the Goldberg type character will come along and you have your new top face.

If Russo was booking the feud would somehow escalate to an object on a pole match.

He would take CM Punk literally and have him form a punk band and be lead singer and sing himself to the ring. Cena would be called 'Compton Cena' or some ridic gangster gimmick.

I'll admit it would be fun. But, you would need an 'undo' button.
