When you hang a rifle on the wall, or a meddling and fame hungry ref with a fabulous booty in a Hell in a Cell, you expect it to go off. He's just been around for too long to have nothing happen in his story.

(This assumes the WWE's Creative is working under the basic principals of good writing. That's a big assumption.)
I mean what makes everyone think Heyman won't have him screw over Punk finally? To go with your 'rifle on the wall', last night, Punk told Heyman that he doesn't know if even he is tying to screw him over.
