I worry the WWE is wasting its greatest talent, exhausting his character to the point of caricature and disdain.
I don't watch to see a role model, no matter how genuinely awesome he is publicly. I watch to see larger than life BATTLES.
Nobody gets enough of a push, or recognition they deserve one, for this to happen. Instead, Vicki gets a new fiancée. Yawn.
The Punk/Cena feud that peaked at MITB 2011 was the last really good feud in a couple years. Larger than life, as you put it. Hasn't really been one since that point. As much as they tried with the WM28 Rock v Cena feud, it fell short of expectations because the Rock wasn't making enough live appearances, and when he was in the ring during the build he certainly wasn't involved in anything physical.
