Re: General Pro Wrestling News and Discussion Thread Part Deux!

Of course Punk was over, but the feud with Jericho was what solidified him as a main eventer. Punk and Cena didn't really have a feud, it was more one match and then another match which was more about making Alberto Del Rio champion and trying to further a storyline arc featuring Punk, Triple H, Big Johnny and Nash than it was about Punk/Cena.

Punk's opponents from his second reign as WWE Champion until he met with Jericho consisted of the likes of Alberto Del Rio, The Miz and Dolph Ziggler, etc, who are respectably big names, but not on the same level as Chris Jericho. Punk's feud with Jericho was his first real "championship series" as the WWE Champion and it lended him credibility, especially since he's gone all that time without actually main eventing PPV's.
