There's been quite a trend on here lately I noticed where people seem to be turning on the babyface in the main event scene now. John Cena and Randy Orton aside, you now have Sheamus and CM Punk who seems to be getting quite a bit of negative comments on here. I'd like to bring attention to both these guys in particular.
Sheamus- Last year when Sheamus was still a heel, almost everyone was saying Sheamus needs to turn face. They said he would work well as a face and that he would make things fresh on Smackdown which was mainly dominated by Randy Orton. Then Sheamus does turn face and for a few months people seemed to take to Sheamus. Then once the road to wrestlmania began everyone started to turn on Sheamus. People started to say Sheamus sucks and that he's boring and one particular poster even started calling him nick names like Shame Us(can't actually remember if that was how it's spelt). Now after beating Daniel Bryan in 18 seconds at Mania, he's getting even more hate. People use any little thing to complain about him, like his cardio is off or he's stealing Daniel Bryan's catchprase. I can understand that his booking has been bad recently, he spent the weeks before Royal Rumble squashing jobbers, then pretty much did nothing until after Elimination Chamber and his fued with Bryan has been really bad. But he's still the same Sheamus he was months ago before it all happened. He even had a great match with Bryan at Extreme Rules and it still wasn't enough. I think someone should create a "Haters Gonna Hate" meme for Sheamus.
CM Punk- Last year we had the Summer of Punk. He cut that promo and all of a sudden he was shot to superstardom. For the rest of 2011 Punk was pretty much the IWC golden boy until Jericho returned. But i've noticed a lot recently that there has been quite a lot of negativity towards Punk. Of course Punk's negativity isn't as bad as Sheamus's. But there's still negativity towards him and arguably even more noticable then Sheamus's since Punk is 10x better then Sheamus and more popular on here then him. But I was in a thread recently that was talking about the babyface promo that Punk cut on John Laurnitis on Raw this week, and talking about how awful Punk was. But there was more then that, people were openly bashing Punk. There was also another thread saying his ring work has regressed. But it's just funny seeing all this, because only a few months ago Punk was a god or the best in the world on here, and if anyone had said any of this to him. You'd have about 5-10 posters flaming the guy who said it. I think the reason for the Punk hate is simply because, people don't like face Punk, they preferred him as a heel and now that he's a face it's like people percieve him as a guy who tries to hard. It might also have something to do with the fact that now that the year of Punk is over, he's starting to fizzle out and lose interest.
Anyway that basically an analysis on the two top faces in WWE currently, unless you count Orton and Cena but sure they get a lot of negativity now. Which leads me to say that no main event babyface is safe from the ever so critical IWC. I fear for the futures of Dean Ambrose and Antonio Cesoro because I reckon they'd be pretty big, especially as heels. But when they become babyfaces, who knows. They may turns out like Punk and Sheamus.
