Because people are so far up Punk's butt as if he is the greatest WWE champion of all time. He's by far the most protected champion of all time. Seriously he's worse than Cena when it comes to being protected as champion. He had a fan incident a few months ago, and he was injured during his run. Correct me if Im wrong, but for a guy to go almost 2 months without defending the title and is exempt from having his title evacted after not defending his title in 30 days which the WWE has used that since the Hogan Era. Come on now, he's the worst booked champion in history and his character and his real life persona have absolutely no consequence. I wonder how hard he's kissing Vince's ass. I mean his reign hasn't been bad, but enough is enough. CM Punk along with John Cena are one of the problems with the WWE right now.
1. He aint protected by any means, it just helps to have him as champion because quite frankly, he had to WORK to get people to boo him, and now that they are people are tuning in to see when he will lose the title!
2. He was injured, but the technical rule as far as defending either HEAVYWEIGHT title is 60 days, not 30. Every other minor title is 30 days
3.Neither Cm Punk or John Cena are the problem with WWE right now. Here are some of the problems with WWE right now...
1. Script writers, and their botched story lines,
2 bad promo cutting,
3 mis-handling of superstars
4 drug suspensions,
5 a dis-interested crowd at live events
6.Stone cold, HHH, Undertaker, and Shawn Michaels, all getting old,
7.Eddie Guerrero dying,
8.Johnathan Coachman going to ESPN,
9.Having one too many heavyweight titles and making it less competitiive!,
10.The fact that i know i cant get another Hurricane and The Rock backstage segment
11. Funkasaurus (we can keep the funkadactyls though)
12. Lack of McMahon presence on TV
the list goes on and on...obviously some of these were greatly exaggerated. But they are all bigger problems than punk OR cena . Because as far as Tv product, Punk is about the best they got right now. And as far a company representatives i think Cena, as much as people dont like him, has represented this company as well as can be expected...
