    LOL, of course you would book Punk over Austin smh. Haven’t you been on here ssying that Taker needs to put someone over at WM? So why you put Taker over Cena then. Just admit it, you just want Punk to go over in any situation. Biased at it’s finest.

    • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Richard Gray

      Looking at the future. Austin to attract the crowd, Punk to carry the business forward. There would be no payoff in Austin going over Punk. Love the big name draws but it doesn’t make good sense to have them return only to prove the current roster inferior.

      • Ben

        Agreed. And as for Cena going over Taker, it doesn’t help anyone because Cena doesn’t need the rub as the top guy in WWE. Punk could be catapulted from being the 1B to the top guy with a win over Taker. If nothing else, he certainly benefits from arguably the biggest rub in the history of pro wrestling. Punk SHOULD go over the part-time talent because he’s going to be around and will benefit from that. I realize how important Taker’s Streak is to his fans, but it would do so much more for his legacy to put someone over the top as the biggest star in the business than it ever would for him to go 21-0… at least IMO.

        • Willy Wonka

          A win over Taker won’t change anything. If a 434 day title reign wasn’t enough to move Punk passed Cena then nothing will at this point. Punk will never equal Cena in terms of popularity because it if would of happened by now it would if. I hate to sound harsh or like I’m bashing Punk b/c I’m not. That’s just the reality of things.

    • Chalon

      Yep, and many people agree with him.

      • Ben

        Did you even read Richard’s reply? Do you need someone to spell it out for you? PART-TIMERS GOING OVER FULL-TIME WORKERS DELIVERS NO PAYOFF. It has NOTHING to do with CM Punk other than him currently being booked against Taker and being dream matched up against Austin if SCSA agreed to work. Richard had a problem with The Rock going over Cena last year, at least before it was established that Rocky was going to be around for this WM. And yes, I will admit I am a huge fan of Punk’s going back to his indie days, but being a fan of a worker does not immediately coincide with wanting that worker to win all the time (although yes, sadly, there are some Punk fans who don’t get what’s good for business, like The Rock parading the WWE Championship everywhere he goes; hopefully that will generate more PPV buys to justify jobbing Punk out twice in a row).

      • Willy Wonka

        Not really. The only people who agree with him are Punk fans like yourself. Punk will never be the #1 guy in the company, he’ll never be as successful as Cena, a win over Taker wouldn’t change anything or do any good for the business. Once Punk fans realize this and move on they will live happier lives.

  • Snap

    If it was up to Punk fans they would book CM Punk over Jesus Christ himself lol

      Let’s just look at it from another perspective and perhaps you’ll see my point. Say you could talk Michael Jordan at 50 into signing a contract with the Miami Heat for the Playoffs. Strictly hypothetical of course since he is the owner of the Bobcats but just hear me out. Sign him to play alongside Wade and LeBron. Who are you going to want to make sure comes out as the top guy? LeBron, who is in his prime, or Jordan that’s finished? Apply this scenario to WWE, dismissing any preconceived opinions for (or against) a particular worker.

      • Willy Wonka

        NEWS FLASH: Punk isn’t LeBron though, That would be Cena, Punk is Wade or Bosh. Punk is the Randy Savage of this generation, Cena is the Hogan. At no point was Savage ever a bigger draw then Hogan. And at no point will Punk ever move pass Cena to be the #1 guy. If it was gonna happen it would of happened already.

        • sir-rusty82

          It did happen this year, Punk carried the show were Cena became stale……. Look at WM lead up it all started to suck straight after Cena beat Punk and put him as the face of the company again

          • Guest

            Well if that was really case (even though me & you both now he’s not the top guy) then Punk wouldn’t need to go over Taker then to be elevated because he’s already the #1 guy

          • Guest

            Well if that was the case (even though me & you both know Punk is not the top guy) then he wouldn’t need to go over Taker because he’s already the top guy. And yeah Punk carried RAW to the lowest ratings RAW has since 1996, glad you pointed that out.

    • Chalon

      Nah, Jesus can take a double DQ.

  • Darko

    I believe you were referring to my comment regarding Richard Reacts. Appreciate that! I hope Undertaker puts on a clinic and proves you wrong. I think he looks in better shape than last year, which perhaps isn’t that difficult. I don’t know, my heart would break if Undertaker, but your points are indeed valid. I just don’t hope that Vince isn’t a premium member ;)

    • Darko

      If Undertaker lost*

    The point of the WWE Title is to book mystic. Not who is Champion. All the World Champions for a while have been upper mid card matches. Which is the level the IC Title is meant to be. The Champion or Mainevent is meant to draw. Not every Mainevent Superstar need to be World Champion. Roddy Piper is proof of that. Eliminating the World & US Title would bennifit more than, Just the US Title. Eliminating both IC & US though would make the World Title a mid card title which it is booked as now. Hulk Hogan, Bruno Sammartino & more faced hundreds of World Champion superstars, But made more money drawing, which is what it takes. Talent will work harder with one title then 2. Cena gets a long reign maybe, But imagine the money fueds you could have. You say you are an old school fan. That is old school. Look at the history of pro wrestling if you don’t believe me.

    I wish there was written versions of the mailbag.
