VIDEO: WWE.com Exclusive: WWE Champion CM Punk talks about his issues with Jerry Lawler and facing John Cena in Boston at NOC 12.
Seeing that starting his title rule final November, Punk has resolutely dismissed challenger following a different one. He's discarded Dolph Ziggler, Chris Jericho, Daniel Bryan and Kane—sturdy rivalry, all—and at SummerSlam, he overcame beyond any doubt-blaze first-ticket Lobby of Famers Cena and Vast Indicate, though under doubtful conditions, as per some. Some contend that Punk stole the pin from Cena, while others contend that Punk abused the standards of a Triple Danger Match.
Yet, over the course of his long, 280-in addition to-day title rule—the longest because Cena's 380-day rule finished harshly a part-dozen years in the past—seldomly has Punk had the fulfillment of protecting the WWE Championship in the primary occasion of a WWE pay-for each-view. Alternately, that profoundly desired and lucrative position on top of the card has frequently headed off to the hugely attractive Cena, who notwithstanding his zoom lens-accommodating appeal, has been in a championship dry season after losing the WWE Title final September.
Rightly or wrongly, Punk battles he has unjustifiably taken a rearward sitting arrangement to Cena and been consigned to semi-fundamental occasion status, subsequently. His shock over this and different observed scorns has just developed more clear after Crude 1,000, when Punk stunned the WWE Universe by can't help Cena (who was can't help being struck by Show) and ambushing The Rock. Because then, a darker, more sinister side of The Straight Edge Superstar has apparently brought keep, climaxing with a unprovoked strike in opposition to fan-best Jerry “The Lord” Lawler on the Aug. 20 release of Crude when Lawler won't distinguish Punk as “Ideal in the Universe.” Punk trounced an overmatched “Ruler” the taking after week, following Lawler supported face the champion in a Steel Confine Match.
Putting aside his issues with Lawler, Punk has showed up at times fixated with the thought of getting the Cenation go-to person to surrender that Punk is the finest in the planet. With the certainty befitting a champion, Cena has stalwartly won't, idiom it is part of his DNA as a planet-class contestant to not consider himself as whatever than the greatest.
Punk's goal During the evening of Champions is clear: He presently brandishes the championship gold that implies he's the top Superstar in the planet; on Sept. 16, he’ll have the opening to substantiate it to Cena. However Punk keeps various towering-profile wins over Cena—incorporating again-to-back WWE Title Match triumphs at the previous year's Cash in the Lender and SummerSlam occasions—none of these achievements could have an incredible same effect as besting Cena in Boston, the destination of Night of Champions and a stone's toss from Cena's origination of West Newbury, Mass. Cena conceded as much on the Aug. 20 Crude.
“Depending on if you stroll into Night of Champions the WWE Champion in opposition to me and some way or another leave the WWE Champion, that is the instant that will demarcate your being,” the 10-time WWE Champion rebelliously told Punk.
Strange as it could sound, Night of Champions will be a demonstrating ground for the WWE Champion.
Punk, in any case, should not be apart from everyone else in that respect. On the different side of the comparison is Cena, who has been on the outskirts of the WWE Title scene for the preferable part of a year. In the event that he were to triumph over The Second City Example of piety, Cena could hush any pundits who propose his time has passed. Also, a win over Punk could speculatively either quiets down the verbose champion or render baseless his case that he's the ideal in the universe—likely a welcome improvement for a share of the WWE Universe.
Around evening time of Champions, Punk's extended-stewing loathing in the direction of Cena and Cena's championship eagernesses reach a crucial stage. Which constrain will show more weighty? Can Cena recover the WWE Championship for a remarkable 11th time? Alternately will the clever Punk again slide by Cena on the way to assembling one of the most obviously exceptional WWE Championship rules in the title's essentially 50-year history?
On the Sept. 3 version of Crude, a late bend was included when Punk struck Cena then after that headed off with Paul Heyman! What suggestions will this unique potential union have?

What's known beyond any doubt is that the primary occasion of Night of Champions could be considerably above and beyond simply a matter of “appreciation.”
