Personally I think he knows Punk is gold by now. After such a historic reign I would presume hes knows what he has. In my opinion Vince must think as Punk as his number 2 guy above Orton and below Cena.. Thoughts?
He's not 6'5 and 270 pounds therefore he doesn't draw
Needs moar ryback
Yes obviously his size doesn't help him gain "legitimacy" in Vince's eyes even though everyone knows this is predetermined but Punk must have some support keeping the WWE Championship as long as he did
