Eh, it's still "new" to the kiddies that it's OK to cheer someone other than Cena or Orton. Punk's not going to get over as a face with everyone right away, it'll probably take awhile and another big PPV win (like a Mania main event) for a majority of the "casual" fans to get on board IMO.

If they were to do this right, they'd slow it down and have HHH/Punk be a mania payoff, but I have a hard time seeing them doing something that long-term.
I can live with Punk losing to Cena, as long as it's not a clean loss. HHH interference, Cena cheating (in my dreams, right?...), or another way to create some controversy & continue the story and keep Punk in the spotlight would be fine.

That said, Cena doesn't need the title and if Punk beat him, it'd give him some more credibility as the champ.

Like I said, I'm OK with Punk losing to Cena as long as it's not clean and there's some way to continue this story. I have no problem if ADR cashes in/tries to cash in and gets his little title run while they go to Mexico, but in the long-term, he needs to be involved in a storyline that makes people care about him. It seems like they're trying to get him involved in a feud with Kofi, which would be a good thing to help develop his character.

As for feeding Punk to HHH, he seems to be a strictly non-wrestler right now, and if he wrestles in the future, it should only be to put someone over. And if they end up making Punk the focus of these shows just to feed him to Cena (who doesn't need it), I'm gunna be so ****ing mad.


I guess I'll just take Punk's advice and sit back, shut up and enjoy it. He's telling stories!
