CM Punk is one of the most original characters in WWE, "Right Now". And unfortunately, that's just not saying a whole lot. And I disagree with Paul Heyman. He USED to be PRETTY GOOD on the mic. I never considered him gold except in the real ECW. Now, he's just loud and annoying, and honestly, quite disturbing to look at with this overly flabby face and bloated body. He really should have just left well enough alone and stayed retired, or actually helped make Extreme Reunion somewhat of a success.
And if Punk is so great, why do they need to bring in Heyman in an attempt to elevate him? That answer is simple. Because he is basically bland and will never be a draw. That's why he took a backseat to Cena in all the PPVs? Not because WWE had this genius storyline to create a heel Punk. But because nobody will buy PPVs for Punk. They buy them for Cena. It's a fact. I'm a Punk fan. I'm not a Cena fan. But this is the reality of it all. There is one star in WWE. Sheamus is becoming one but I can't see him reaching the heights of Cena. Everyone else is just pretty much there. Entertaining? Sure, in some ways. I hear the Anger Management segments were funny. But ultimately, is there anyone besides Cena who can carry this company? No. When Cena goes away, the numbers, which already have dwindled and spriraled down consistently over the last several years, will fall even further.
Everyone has their opinion. You like WWE today, with CM Punk and all that, and that's great. I'm glad you like it. I come from a time when wrestling was about 5000 times better. So I just don't like what WWE has become today. And my feelings are that Punk and Ziggles, and all the other "Top Stars" of today, aren't qualified to scrub the jock straps of Rock, Stone Cold, Mick Foley, Undertaker, Shawn Michaels, HHH, Bret Hart, etc. or even the next tier guys like Angle, Edge, Benoit or Guerrero. In my opinion, today's crop is just sad in comparison.
