I knew this angle was DOA when Punk came out with his demands list - and none of it had to do with a being straight-edge. You could see Vince had finally notice the consistent pops he was getting and thought he could parlay it into something like a mainstream rebel.
But when you drop the straight-edge angle, then lose the Cradle of Filth ripoff intro...
for Cult of Personality???? Freakin In Living Color???!!!
That tune was overrated when it hit in the late 80's. I don't care if it was Punk's ROH tune. It's a horrendous choice.
so, yeah, like Nexus. It's over before it started. WWE has no follow through.
