Everybody has some bad times, you can't work your ass off like Punk/Orton/Bryan/Cena and not slow down a little. Those are the work horses of the company and go at a high level. Punk needs rest and time off because he lost a step. Down to two moves in matches and it looks like he hasn't slept in months.
The thing with Punk is he was booked so high the only place for him to go was down after his major push. After The Roch beat him for the title in RR it seem like that got to him. Punk is a guy that has to have the belt in order to be fun to watch or strong.
People won't miss him because of the fact they want Byran and Punk is not needed by the late 20's fanbase anymore.
