I wonder if the real plan is to turn Punk into a "John Cena" type character who polarises the audience? WWE is certainly failing to turn the guy heel.
But then again, that's what happens when you resort to classic, stale and predictable heel-turn booking. Speaking of predictable and stale, whenever a tag-team match comes on, I go off and do something else, because the constant use of the same tired formula is rotting my brain:
- Face team in control.
- Heel team capitalises. (Usually cuts to adverts when match is a TV match)
- Face in peril, lots of heel team tagging in and out.
- Face in peril builds momentum, only to get caught just as he is about to tag his partner.
- Face gets the hot tag, partner cleans house on both members of heel team.
- A few momentum switches between heel and face teams.
- Either the face team takes the win or the heel team does.
Anybody who thinks that formula is still good has absolutely no right to call themselves a wrestling fan.
