Or would you classify him as a "tweener".

I wouldn't classify it at all. Cena kinda put it best on his Twitter, pretty much saying "people cheer for who they want to cheer for; the days for a definite heel/face dynamic are dead"

Punk is just punk. Depending on how you feel determines whether or not he's a face or heel to you.

While that thing Cena said is somewhat true, he's definitely being booked as a face now.

I see him as a tweener IMO. fans love him but he acts heelish.

Correction: IWC, anti-Cena, other smarks love him.....

To me they are both Faces, unless they are against each other.

Cena is clearly "The Rock" to CM Punk's "Stone Cold", one is the "corporate" babyface being nice to the kids, doing the chat shows etc, the other is the don't give a **** babyface. Unless they face each other they are both face.

The great thing about this angle is that Cena has become a lot less annoying, which could be a problem when the Rock comes back as its sort of all the ammo he had against him. But I'm sure Rock can come up with something.

Either way am loving the story right now and look forward to see where it goes.

He hasn't been heelish since that night in Vegas when he sat at the top of the ramp and shocked the world. He's been playing to the crowd, winning matches cleanly, and wrestling nothing but heels (besides Cena). I'd say he's a full out face, really.

He's absolutely a fully fledged face, classic "anti-authority" face as of right now.

Cena can babble about whatever he wants. There are faces and there are heels.

He's a face because "OMGZ He talks like we do!!!!!"

Punk won't be a face in Gertner's eyes until he starts talking about how boring Daniel Bryan is.

Mostly face, but will have his haters. (cena fans)

If I was asked to explain the concept of what a 'tweener' is, current Punk would be the perfect example.

CM Punk's a face. Not at first, but now, definitely.

I'd say tweener similar to Orton pre-draft but moving closer towards being a face now that he's away from having Cena in a feud.

I'd assume the main reason he decided to help Cena attack Del Rio was more of revenge from what Del Rio did to him on the ppv than actually caring about Cena. He even acknowledge what Del Rio did was smart and good unlike Cena who spazzed out for some reason on Monday even though he wasn't affected.

He's an anti-face very much like SCSA was back in the Attitude era only better.

Aguakate
08-17-2011, 03:07 PM
He's not really an anti-face like Austin was...Punk plays up to the crowd much more, and smiles...

He's definitely a face. There shouldn't even really be a question at this point.

Wishbone

Tweener with a tendancy to lean toward face.

What is there about him that is heelish? At all.

If you consider him a tweener, there has to be something.

He's been working face since MITB.

I'm surprised the IWC isn't tweeting him " Um, could you work in the word "workrate" next time on Raw? I'm finding it hard to climax"

Speaking of "bad guys" I was kind of expecting Punk to mention Hall and Waltman at some point during the confrontation, asking where they are in all of this. Probably will at some point.

...maybe he won't have to ask where they are...

...maybe they'll just show up!

When Nash said the text said "Hey yo...big man...", I was thinking Scott Hall.

...wouldn't it really be something if it turned out Hall was the one who texted Nash?

LOL

BTW, watch this short video, and look at how Punk expresses himself and how he plays up to the crowd...definitely a face:

Whether hes a face/heel/tweener/doofus, it doesn't matter because they've made him completely irrelevant again with this Kevin Nash feud.

...so...are you saying that...

...Nash > Punk?

irrelevant he says, after one run-in and one promo

Droford
08-17-2011, 08:22 PM
Nash basically just stood there and was like "whatever" and called him a Waffle House short order cook..

If Punk beats Nash, big whoop, he beat a 52 year old that hasn't wrestled in almost a year.
If Nash wins, then Punk lost to a 52 year old that hasn't wrestled in almost a year.

Its a fucking no win scenario for Punk. Nash at least is getting paid.

Yeah, ignore the fact that it's the biggest storyline on Raw right now, taking precedence over the WWE title.

Corporate CockSnogger
08-17-2011, 08:24 PM
Hey guys, remember how irrelevant Austin was when he wrestled Vince McMahon? That was a total no-win situation for Stone Cold.

Droford
08-17-2011, 08:33 PM
Austin wrestling McMahon was completely different. They had built that feud up for a couple of years.

This, they could have had the person costing Punk the match be virtually anyone, and they chose Kevin Nash. No one was clamoring for a Punk/Nash match..its not on anyones top 10 Dream Matches..the biggest thing people might care about it over is to see whether Punk can drag a decent match out of Nash and whether or not Nash can avoid tearing a quad for 10 minutes.

Corporate CockSnogger
08-17-2011, 08:36 PM
You do realise that the actual storyline here is the whole "whodunnit" situation of who screwed Punk? It's quite likely we'll eventually end up getting Punk vs Triple H, which would be a great feud. A sub-feud with Nash (which may not even end up as a match if Nash takes an authority role) will only help to build up the eventual Punk v HHH feud.

Droford
08-17-2011, 08:52 PM
Nah, it'll be more like Punk w/ HHH vs ??? w/Steph because shes the one that sent the text messages and the focus will be more on HHH/Steph than Punk and whoever it is he faces.

He's certainly more face than heel at this point.

He's gone Heel > Tweener > Face at a remarkable speed.

Side note, are we still able to use the term 'face' without paying some royalties to Zuckerberg?

Shisen Kopf
08-19-2011, 10:59 PM
I'd say he's a tweener. And how totally bitchin that this feud has him up against the original tweener. You better be wearing a black glove!
