Re: Whether you like him or not CM Punk is now carrying a lot of the company weight.
I think if CM Punk went too it would plummet...all he is doing is keeping WWE's head barely above water which is understandable, not because he cannot draw but because one guy cannot carry a whole 3 hour show, Neither him nor Cena can do that.
This only serves as a warning to the WWE that their coasting time is limited. Cena, Punk and team hell no are the only ones drawing right now. Sheamus is the definition of an anti draw so he is no use, Ryback could be but its too early to tell, he could bomb in a few weeks.
they need better storylines and character development, not filler matches and comedy wrestlers.
I feel sorry for Punk, it is a lot of pressure to put on him at a time when there are barely any back up storylines like the whole triple H/Brock Lesnar angle during the summer.
its a combination between bad timing and poor booking. one man doesnt make or break the show...unfortunately due to the way the WWE book things it appears two men do, Cena and Punk and punk is floundering because his feud has lost its momentum due to Cena's injuries. This time should now be spent building new storylines, and not just involving Ryback but a good section of the Midcard which will serve as great insurance if they wind up in this situation again anytime in the current and foreseeable future
