He hasn't shown that intensity in quite awhile and if he's going to get in a shouting match with Punk he needs to turn it up. Lord knows he won't be able to go in the ring like he used to (not saying he'll be terrible, but it won't be the memorable part of the feud) so he really needs to own Punk's ass on the mic.
Also, I'm speaking of the few returns he's had in the past several years... He either doesn't talk much or doesn't talk well.
I had similar worries until I saw the sit down interview with he and Punk that was conducted by JR. I thought he was fantastic there.
