WWE Survivor Series 2012: Team Cena vs. Team Punk Would Have Been Better
CM Punk and John Cena are no strangers to what each other are capable of when they get into the ring together. From their WWE Money in the Bank 2011 match to their Night of Champions 2012 match, Cena and Punk have put on some of the best matches of the PG era.

What better tradition than having the best feud in PG era history captain opposite teams?
We see a ton of short-term feuds these days. CM Punk and Daniel Bryan is a prime example of this.

Even Punk and Ryback have only recently begun to feud with one another. WWE is notorious for dropping angles and storylines, so we should not be surprised.
Whether it is Punk and Foley, Punk and Ryback or Foley and Ziggler, no match up would get as much attention, intrigue or meaning than Team Punk and Team Cena.
