Punk says this is ridiculous and makes no sense. He says the fact people voted for John Cena is atrocious. Punk says Cena had a horrible year. Punk calls Cena a loser, like Flair and the fans in Philadelphia. Punk says he's Superstar of the Year because he's been WWE Champion 393 days. Punk says he's the man, not Cena and not Punk.
