The only time during John Cenas superman run that I actually wanted him to win was vs Lashley, Lashley sucked and would never have made it big, one of the biggest charisma vacuums ever imo.

WWE clearly liked him, despite it being said that had it no been for Paul Heyman, Punk would've been fired? Despite it being said that Triple H hated Punk from day one, and killed Punk's momentum for no reason, and WWE's own incompetency drove Punk away from wrestling as a whole?

No one's acting like Punk never amounted to anything, but he was undoubtedly, one of the biggest dropped balls in the last 10 years. He was the hottest guy they had in years in 2011, and they killed his momentum for no reason. I can understand why Punk fans would still be mad, considering WWE had no good reason to kill Punk's momentum as bad as they did.

Re: History repeating itself? Vince's quote on Lashley vs. The Reigns Super Push

Vince was right about Lashley, whom has become a successful MMA fighter and could realistically be their next heavyweight champion. Bellator should just create an interim heavyweight title and crown a champion in Lashley's next fight until their bastard Russian champion decides to show up and fight again (it's been since 2014).

Lashley has become the elite black wrestler in the world of professional wrestling. The WWE currently has no black wrestler that compares to Lashley.

Vince is trying to push Reigns down our throats because he thinks he can expand his demographics with him like the Rock (but the Rock was half black). Vince just sees him (pushes him) as other. McMahon wants him to appeal to the broader brown skinned audience and he really has nobody else good enough for this role (sadly).

The WWE's best opportunity out there for a face/hero that is black, that could be a success with the audience is Jay Lethal.

Taker became Champion in his first year and semi main evented pretty much every Mania after that.

Kane was in the semi main at his first Mania and became champion three months later.

Show was in the semi main in his first Mania and main evented his second Mania.

As you can see, all those guys were pushed hard right from the get go, while Punk was held down until his contract was up.

Too muscular, like Ryback. Lose tough guy credibility when you're that puffed up.

How do you explain the great booking given to part timers? And how come Vince allowed Kevin friggin Federline to go over John Cena without Cena getting his win back?

1) Huge push? The guy was the hottest thing in 2011 and they tried to ruin his momentum at every turn. Even when they finally gave him the title, they completely relegated him to midcard and John Cena was still "the guy". In his 434 days as WWE Champion, he defended the title at 9 PPVs and headlined THREE of them. Two were against John Cena, and the third one was because John Cena was injured. This was the highest-level champion in all of professional wrestling and he was in the midcard while John Cena feuded with fucking John Laurinaitis and Big Show in the main event. At the end, instead of going 500 days and dropping the title in the main event at WrestleMania, he had to drop it at Royal Rumble so that Vince could have his Twice in a Lifetime flop and put the title back on John Cena.

2) CM Punk has never headlined a WrestleMania. Big Show headlined WrestleMania 16.

Part-timers are part-timers. They bring in the most money, so of course Vince will take care of them. I was talking about the full-time roster. Vince doesn't care about anyone, he will bury everyone just so his handpicked guys can go over. I think he is just a very bitter and spiteful man. Look at Zack Ryder: he got over on his own and he was completely buried because, I suppose, Vince wouldn't allow anyone to get over if he wasn't behind it. How dare he get over without my consent, Dammit!
