Re: What has happened to cm punk
Right now I think his mindset is either "I'll only put in effort in top level programs" or "My body is falling apart and I should save myself for the big matches so I can make them the best they can be".
Basically, he just doesn't give a shit anymore. However, he's still producing some quality. Match with Ambrose on Smackdown was really great, and the one on Raw was good as well. Had a really good match with Luke Harper. The last Big E match he had was good as well. Pretty sure he had a pretty good match with Fandango at some point, as well as a good match with Orton on the Raw right before MITB. The Shield 3-on-1 handicap match was MOTN and an awesome match as well.
So it's not match quality necessarily that's taken a hit by his mindset, but rather his mic work. He still does a decent job at the very least, but since the Heyman feud ended, he's clearly not putting in any effort into that, which is a shame.
I'm watching you...
