Depends on your definition of "midcarder." To some, anyone not currently main-eventing is a midcarder. To others, you can be a main-eventer and work the midcard or whatever you wish to call it while John Cena stays at the top doing whatever he's doing.

I can't see him literally vying for a midcard strap again once he's done working with John Cena again and The Rock for The Royal Rumble. He's going to be a "name" for the rest of his career regardless of card positioning.

What has been damaged, though, is the WWE Championship, and that attrition of prestige hit its nadir this week with Cena's narcissistic character, who is, humorously, beloved by the majority of WWE's fans, saying that the WWE Championship is irrelevant so long as it remains outside of his particular orbit. Which, in essence, is what he said.

Punk's promo vs. Del Rio last fall was largely different in that it assailed Del Rio's character for being one-note and boring, but he did cross the line, too, with the remark that he would make the WWE Championship "interesting again," indicating that the championship was not interesting so long as Del Rio wore it.

Can't wait for the promos between Rock and Punk in January with Rock saying he's going to save the championship from tedium. "You come out here and run your mouth and say you're the Best in the World-uh, the Straight-uh Edge-uh Champion-uh..." Etceteras, etceteras. Hahaha.

You can't be more wrong. He's the second biggest star, and that isn't changing for a long time.

Since when did Orton equate to ratings? At the very least, use Mark Henry instead of Randy Orton in your post. Orton has proven even more times than Punk that he isn't a strong television ratings draw.

No, after losing to Sheamus at WM he will be a midcarder.

Punk's going to be a big part of the show regardless. People act like anyone not feuding for the title is a midcarder. Going forward for the rest of his career. Punk will probably have a similar role to jericho, because they can make any angle interesting, but will be in the title scene more often. he will still be in WWE's top 5 singles guys

As much as WWE has invested in CM Punk, I highly doubt they will relegate him to obscurity. At best I see him carrying an upper midcard role, moreso heading into Wrestlemania since the top of the card will be so stacked. He'll fit comfortably into an occassional main event role ala Jericho, Benoit, Guerrero, etc. I do think that losing the title (in addition to his alliance with Heyman) will give his character a needed boost.

Just want to say that there is nothing wrong with being in the midcard BTW, don't why people use that as an insult.

To be fair, an upper midcarder was exactly what he was for the majority of his reign, so it's not really a demotion if that's where he ends up again.

Its so obvious some of you really hate Punk lol. No way he will be stuck a midcarder. So he is the after Cena in popularity so move him to midcarder lol. Wwe already has issue building legit maineventers so they are just going to waste Punks talent in the midcard. Of course whatever he does will come 2nd to Cena which is sad. Cant wait to hear in the future how awful the talent is once Cena is gone. they could have had him end ppvs wiyh his MoTY contenders instead let Cena play with Ace or whatever he did. Punk will be up their with Cena until he retires. The cream rises to the top right:hhh

There is when you're WWE Champion but WWE have done a pretty good job of making wins/losses & titles not matter, so I guess it's a moot point.

I could go off on a rant about how having two world champions & a Smackdown "brand" is bad but I think it would be a waste of energy. Needless to say, WWE is in full-on don't-give-a-fuck mode & they're straight-up coasting. It doesn't even matter, either. Put out a mediocre product, half-ass your way through the entire year & still get the most buys for a 'Mania ever by slapping The Rock in main event.

Sucks for the fans that watch any non-Wrestlemania WWE show, especially the weekly regulars.
