Look at CM Punk's entire title reign and answer the question yourself. It's obviously the person who draws the most, and it has always been the person who has drawn the most. Why not? Because people would get sick and tired and the writers wouldn't be able to think of anything fresh for him to do for so damn long, they're struggling even now. It's not possible and it's not good business.
