Re: Is WWE saving Punk v Bryan for Wrestlemania?

If WWE thought they were mid card wrestlers, they'd stay in the midcard regardless of fan reaction. But instead they're both former champions of the biggest belt in the company..so obviously they're more than mid carders.

How many gunshot wounds does it take to buy a near-fall?

He's the top guy because they have no other choice with Cena out, Sheamus out and Punk tied up.

Anyway, yes they're saving it, and it sucks, and Punk deserves far better, but he never gets the big programs at WrestleMania, it's always the geeks, except this year. Even worse, Punk is gonna job to the fucking troll.

When WWE was struggling, it's Shawn Michaels and Bret Hart in the main event going 60 minutes, people are leaving during the main event of WrestleMania, you can check the video tape, and Hall and Nash have both told me that Vince said that night, that he would rather have a half full arena cheering for the guy that he says to cheer for, than a full arena cheering for whoever they want.

Re: Is WWE saving Punk v Bryan for Wrestlemania?

you guys are hilarious for continuing to blame Bryan and Punk for the shitty business of the WWE..they sell a shit load of merchandise and people come to see both of them...so i think they aren't getting blamed for jack shit...you guys are hilarious.

Re: Is WWE saving Punk v Bryan for Wrestlemania?

Everybody seems to be forgetting that Cena was in that SS match too. Ratings have been steadily decline for years with him as the face of the company and while there might be some merit to doubts about Bryan's ability to earn, Cena certainly deserves some of the blame as well. His return isn't going to fix the numbers.


I love professional-wrestling.

Re: Is WWE saving Punk v Bryan for Wrestlemania?

Cena has been on top for years and people are tired of it so they stopped buying shit because they figured he'd win all the time..it takes longer than the summer time for business to turn around and for people to notice how much better it is without him, it takes time...either way they're fucked for the time being...it'll take awhile to build a new guy that can draw and numbers will remain down with Cena on top..so either way they have to wait it out until things turn around...probably next year.....until then, just be patient...nothing is Bryan's fault..clearly everyone loves him, they'll come around.

Re: Is WWE saving Punk v Bryan for Wrestlemania?

It's silly to talk about Wrestlemania main events this early, and there is no way that two non-Cena full-timer will main event Mania 30, but it would be cool to see it happen. I mean c'mon! CM Punk and Daniel Bryan are more over than everyone else in the company, including the part-timers.

Most of the buys for both of those years (2011 and 2013) came because of Punk and Bryan....look at the whole year, Cena main eventing isn't a draw anymore....so its not Punk or Bryan that is the problem..
You can't blame Cena for the buy rates, and you can't blame Punk or Bryan. They clearly aren't the reason here.

Re: Is WWE saving Punk v Bryan for Wrestlemania?

also, Summerslam was only based upon two matches...The way they picked Bryan as like a contest winner was also stupid, so I agree with Meltzer on that fact..also, there was only one Miz TV segment that made it look like a credible feud, and nobody knew about Cena's injury so they figured he'd win again, and also Orton kept threatening with the briefcase so people figured he'd come in and steal it from the winner any way. it was booked badly. and nobody thought Punk stood a chance against Lesnar..the whole event was just not built up right and it showed. The fact that people say Bryan isn't a draw is bullshit, because look at all the Yes signs at raw and all of his tee shirts people wear....who cares if people don't fucking order a PPV? Raws are better any way most of the time. and you can stream shit online.

Unless Punk's the heel and GOAT's the face I don't care for this feud happening again.
