He was addressing his short coming's and that made him real not a superhero..
His lack of moves or diversified moves in a match (which only started to change with CM Punk matches), his marketing as always the underdog when everyone know's his going to win (which was up in the air with Punk) and has had the belt more then any champion today because people wanted to see Punk win, it swayed more.. The Hulk Hogan like persona- he addressed quite well when negotiating..
Jim Cornette said that some of the best wrestler's weren't over the top gimmicks but rather were themselves just turned up to 11! Punk, Austin, Michaels, Hart, the Rock.. They were all gimmicks that reflected a 'truism' of themselves- Cena is human not saint like, so don't make him perfect have him be gritty.. (Just not a rapper again..)
Most importantly Cena has been working better in his matches with Punk- which is the main thing..
