Bottom line: If you think one of them "sucks", it's tough to make the argument that the other one sucks much less.

Personally, I liked both. But realistically, neither should have been more than a supporting act to the legit stars.
I don't think I completely agree with this. Yes, people want to be entertained, but I don't think eloquence on the mic necessarily does it. Yes, Bryan is more awkward, but that has charms. I'm not trying to say that Punk was not good on the mic, but I don't think the sort of good he was is exactly a draw to anyone not already into wrestling. Bryan created an aura (or, indeed, a movement around him). That being said, I don't think he was a huge draw, but I think there are differences between the two, just like there are differences between Shawn Michaels and Bret Hart.

Retroactively, I think Punk's stuff is immensely overrated, Bryan's far less so.

Why is Jinder Mahal's title win not up there? Isn't he supposed to be some sort of Indian YouTube draw?

Yeah, Hinder really needs to develop a speech impediment/thick Indian language accent with incoherent rambling if he wants to reach Khaki levels of greatness.

I'd rather take Khali than Mahal. At least there is some spectacle with Khali. God, I cannot believe I am saying that.
