Cena is on a next level when compared to Punk. Some of you might hate this post but he's on par with guys like Dwayne imo. Trips said it the best Cena doesn't need to be chasing or be the WWE champion to be relevant. He's earned that right.
Need a beer ?
Isn't the point to "win titles"? What stable has cena been a part of? Does Punk's character resemble Cena's at all?
Just winning titles doesn't mean they are anything alike. The same could be said about any wrestler. The same could also be said about any other sport, i mean once you've won a title in UFC there's nothing left beyond moving weights (which is uncommon). There's a lot for both Punk and Cena to do; Help spearhead a revitalized product and to continue to entertain the fans by doing what they love.
That's probably the most unfortunate thing for Punk. No matter how much the WWE forces Cena down our throats, he's not in the same tier as guys like Bret Hart, HBK, Stone Cold, The Rock, Angle, Undertaker, etc. To date, Punk's biggest feuds in the WWE have been against a 5'3 Mysterio, a glorified stuntman / drug addict (Jeff Hardy) and now against Cena who the WWE wants us to believe is one of the greatest of all time.
I thought Punk's promo with McMahon was pretty bad by Punk standards the other night. He went for cheap heat with the slap but also with his point about Stone Cold. If it wasnt for their Wrestlemania 13 match between Stone Cold & Bret Hart, we likely dont even have the McMahon / Stone Cold feud. That single match paved the way to turn Austin face and become the future face of the company. Stone Cold was fortunate to have outstanding feuds with guys like Bret Hart, HBK, The Rock, Undertaker, Foley, HHH, Angle, etc.
United States Championship run perhaps?
CM Punk > John Cena how dare you say a thing like this...."Kinda"?
If I was Cena I'd let Punk have the Championship because technically the championship would be beneath me.
