Punk couldn't be any worse then the last Cobra Commander. Its more to do with the fact Rock is Dwayne at 100%, so is Austin, HHH and so on. We know Taker is not a zombie, but he was the American Bad Ass. Kane is no longer a monster as he is another big dude who used to wear a mask. Cena is not Cena at 100% as he is John Cena playing a street kid. Cena presented himself as someone from the streets, but went to private school and really the street he know about was the name of the one he was living in a gated community.
To be fair, the WWE has gotten away from gimmick wrestlers. Rey is more about his luchador tradition with the mask. If you look at most of the guys right now, its just guys going with a 100% personalities rather then going with corny gimmicks.

Twitter: @realjoecarfley its a bit more toned down there. A bit.
Smackdown tonight had a nice and simple main event that didn't need much buildup, with Randy Orton facing (don't call him Antonio) Cesaro. It was a quality match, as would be expected given the participants.
