He is one of the most beloved stars in the IWC, but over the last year or two he is becoming loathed by many. He sort of has a love me/hate me thing going on now (stealing Cena's gimmick), but what he does get is attention. Whether it's something he says on screen or off screen, we like to talk about it. Does it make him more interesting or better that he is this controversial? If Cena thought part-timers were stealing spotlight, and was asked if he did think this, he would reply with something generic that the company would recommend he say. Where as Punk has called out Miz, Rock, and numerous other things during his run as the main event guy. I personally admire that as it sort of reminds me of the older times where they had more balls. Punk knows he is too big to be fired now (like Austin did iirc), and will be brutally honest. Some think he's a whining dick who needs to get punched by Brock, and some admire him for his honesty and his attitude. What side of the fence are you on? Thought this would be a good topic to discuss, which coincides with this question.
