Battling against Cena in the prime of his career was a sure-shot ticket to success in the WWE. Considering that Cena was the biggest money-making machine for the WWE, not every wrestler on the roster got a shot at facing him.

However, CM Punk was grateful to the WWE for trusting him enough that he would not hurt the face of the company during their matchups, regardless of having a fierce rivalry on-screen.

When you’re tasked with working with the guy who pretty much is the engine that makes the company go at that point, it’s kind of just like, ‘Okay, I figured it out then.’ I was like, ‘Alright, I know. They trust me enough and I’m not gonna do anything stupid, I’m not gonna hurt the guy.’
