I can't help but feel that the hatred Punk gets on here sometimes for his attitude is solely because of the backing he did receive from WWE. Many of the IWC have issues with the way WWE does things, so would the IWC treat Punk standing up for what he believes in -- regardless of how much of a douchebag he is when he does it -- be treated in a different way if he was an average midcarder? I personally think it would be praised by the majority and seen as a "midcarder finally standing up to the big guys" instead of just "collecting the pay cheque". However, because of his popularity, he is now seen as spoilt and "shows lack of respect". Personally, I see him leaving while being one of the most paid and showcased stars an even bigger sign of respect if he truly is leaving because he doesn't like the way the business is run (as well as injuries etc.). I couldn't see myself leaving a 1million+ year job because of my morals. I couldn't see myself turning down a match against HHH because I didn't believe it was the match that I deserved. Regardless, do you think the hatred Punk gets is slightly hipster-lead? I just cannot comprehend the problem some of the IWC has with Punk, so please enlighten me @deth @Dolph'sZiggler @Hipsters. I swear to God if your answers are as simple as "he's overrated" then that bothers me even more. How anyone can let other people's opinion change whether they're entertained by someone baffles me to the core.
