but honestly. I like Swagger, he's awesome. Been a big fan. Enjoy watching him. Not sure hel even make it to Mania now.
I think it is highly unlikely that anyone will come even close to The Punk reign in this generation or any after. The reign had several purposes - to legitimise the title, to build the top heel the company has had and will have for years, to maintain consistency and to capitalise on a rare star (an unparalleled star bar by John Cena and part timers). If we do, I think it will be a face. Cena I doubt it as he doesn't need it. Ziggler possibly as I feel they're building him up to something special. I'd say look farther forward, possibly Ryback based on the gimmick they're building for him, even further, I spy Roman Reigns. Even now re ring psychology they're using Reigns very carefully in matches, never letting him look weak. He's going to be a star and a destroyer and the type of character that can hold a title for a long time.
but again - it takes someone special, someone absolutely one of a kind to hold the title nearly as long as that. Cena is that special and had a v long reign. After the mainstream world saw what punk was capable of, bought his t shirts and paid attention, he became special in the same way. The Edges, the Ortons, the Sheamuses, the Barretts, the Mizs, the Bryans, the Cesaros, even the HHHs and god, dare I say, even the The Rocks, aren't on THAT level.
call it the best of a bad bunch if you want, but I don't think people realise just how special John Cena and CM Punk truly are, we haven't seen anyone who has been on that level of give me the ball and run since Kurt Angle and injuries and health problems prevented that series of pushes going to the moon.
