I believe it all ends this Sunday, but that's not to say that Punk will never hold the WWE Championship again. He's firmly entrenched himself as one of the two big full time players in the WWE, and the perfect compliment to John Cena that they've been looking for since BIG DAVE went spiraling in and out of injury POST Undertaker feud. I'd love to see Punk carry this momentum and use this reign to create a new star or a big time MANIA match like a rematch with Rock or Cena or Taker, but I don't see that happening.
One thing I'm almost certain of though ; Punk will be involved in the WWE championship picture come Wrestlemania... I don't know HOW he will, but he will. His character is almost like Triple H from 03-06 (except with more talent than Hunter had at that point, sorry GAME) in the sense that it revolves around him having the belt to validate his opinion that he's the best in the world. It would make absolutely no sense to NOT have Punk involved in the title picture after his character says otherwise. Do people really expect PUNK (who has a character that REVOLVES around that title) to drop the title, and say "LOL No rematch" and then somehow enter a feud with Taker?
Besides, literally everything Taker has done since 2/22/11 has involved Triple H in some way shape or form. So when Triple H says at the Slammys that Taker is gonna be back, than Trips is going to be involved somehow. I can't see Trips wrestling without DAT long hair and besides... Who was Trips feuding with last ? Punk-Rock-Cena and Taker-Lesnar W/ The Game as Referee is my last prediction for Wrestlemania XXIX and I'm sticking to it. Makes more logical sense than anything I've ever seen in my life. TOO MUCH sense actually.
With all that being said, one of these days I'll probably do a write up about Punk's reign ; a reign that I feel has been the best WWE title reign since Austin in 2001 by a pretty wide margin, and easily the second or third best title reign in the modern era.
In Punk We Trust.
"He's not the biggest. He was never the strongest. He was never the fastest. He was overlooked. He went in the sixth round. So with that being said, all of the intangibles that a quarterback is supposed to have, they overlooked it with him because it was burning from inside of him" - Ray Lewis on Tom Brady
