Oh, I get that, I was just suggesting that they might want to limit situations like that where Punk will come off as less a star than Cena. If the goal is to get him over massively, then don't have dueling chants basically anywhere but Chicago at this point. Give him another win somewhere, establish him (Punk winning matches without help, or even being competitive is a relatively new thing...) and then
start the side-by-side comparison thing.
Wins would solve a lot. Let him beat Cena again. It's not like it can conceivably hurt Cena in any way, shape or form. The munchkins aren't going to stop buying fruity shirts if he's 0-2 on recent PPVs.
That's probably the best we can hope for. I don't think there's any way they turn him straight-up heel, although the idea of him working as a corporate champion could be something good if they did it right (although him mouthing off to Johnny Ace kills that idea...).
Anyway, the title's going on Del Rio, and then Cena's back to feuding with Rock (which I still say he doesn't need a belt to do...). That doesn't leave a whole lot of Punk to do. I mean, personally, I'm not all that interested in Del Rio/Punk (or Del Rio and anybody at this point), and there really isn't much on the roster after that. Hence HHH.
Something just occurred to me. Mysterio should be incensed about the whole title thing. Having to do two title matches in a night? Bullshit! I hate Mysterio and I think that's crap. So what kind of pussy must he be, in story, to not say a word about that while these other two guys are figuring out who the champion is. I mean, Ray should have jumped into the right at the end and said "that guy won and left, that guy lost and then beat me on my second match of the night, so I say I deserve a shot, too, Hunter? "
No, I'm not saying I want a 3-way. It just seems odd.
