If Sheamus is over-pushed, punk is just as over-pushed. Hell atleast punk main evented 3 PPVs, Sheamus absolutely none, they even outright acknowledged that he is secondary champion. Its not going to matter if he pins or makes them tap out, he's going no where until he gets the one big win over heel Orton because thats the only way.
The lack of star power is a problem, but making new credible stars wouldn't hurt either. I guess that is why CM Punk turned heel. They have teased Sheamus vs CM Punk and haven't done it yet.
