Many fans seem to be under the impression that CM Punk is now the face of WWE. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Find out why.
Also, on a side note, WWE recently had a major script error on Raw if you have not already heard.
Last summer, CM Punk had a very successful run at the top spot. He became the absolute focal point of the company and all the attention was on him (and rightfully so). Fast forward to now, much of that initial steam has died down and not much momentum remains.
Following CM Punk’s red-hot feud with John Cena, management moved him into a program with Triple H. Ever since that program, he has been losing momentum. Beyond this point, his character slowly returned to the point where it had always been.
CM Punk now is the exact same character that he was before his rise to the top. The only difference rests with the fact that he is over with the crowd.
Looking over Raw’s television ratings, it becomes painfully obvious that he is unable to draw since he typically loses viewers for any segment or match that he is involved in. Your top guy can’t lose viewers.
On the other hand, John Cena is still the focal point of the company. Last month, he was involved in a feud with Brock Lesnar and prior to that, he had a “once in a lifetime” bout with The Rock. He is the one who main events pay-per-views and even Raw, all without being involved in the WWE title scene.
Needless to say, John Cena remains the centerpiece and face of WWE.
