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.
