No, they've invested too much into his heel persona already to put him back to the midcard. He'll be in a program with The Rock come 2013. I don't see him going back to the midcard anytime soon.

They've invested a too much with him period to drop him far down the card. He has a DVD coming out, he's on the cover of WWE 13, plus he mores merchandise so from a business standpoint, he won't slip very far down.

If he does, so what. He'll be in the workhorse position putting on the best matches. I'd happily watch a series of brilliant CM Punk matches.

Seriously, who exactly do you think is just going to go and replace him...AND do a better job? We get it, you don't like him.

The Miz became a midcarder? That's because it's the fucking Miz.
If you've got a better justification, please share, but be kind and don't say "because I/the IWC think he's a good wrestler", that just doesn't mean shit on the larger scale.

I'd really hate to see that happen. But Punk's no pushover, and you gotta think that he'll fight and claw to remain in the Title scene or at least have a main-event level program of his own. The guy is a straight-up bona fide top guy now, despite what many may think.

Let's put it this way. Everyone has been bitching about the ratings since last year with Punk as champ. And he's still champ. WWE clearly has an agenda for Punk. Why the hell would you make a guy one of the most popular wrestlers in the company and then do nothing?

People tend to think everything revolves around the ratings while in actuality, Punk and Orton prove WWE leans more and more towards live gates and merchandise sales in justifying pushes. I can't see the problem with Punk as he is among the most profitable superstars in all of WWE. I just responded to your post, where you give the impression that justifying something by ratings is laughable, when the truth is WWE still depends hugely on their ratings, since no show can survive without it's viewers. The rating problem is anyway more about this current era than the superstars themselves, but a statistic is always a statistic. It's not irrelevant. For instance, even Orton lost the World title last year because of bad ratings and I'd still argue Orton is more over than Punk. So popularity only takes you so far.

If anything, I'd blame the ratings on booking. WWE gives a fuck about 5 people and the show isn't well rounded. The guys they have, have the ability to succeed.

The WWE writing team is stupid, but I do not think they are stupid enough to take Punk and put him back to a mid-carder. Don't forget he'll get his rematch for the title. I'm guessing he either retains the title, feuds with Sheamus and one of the two will become undisputed champ... or he loses the title and starts feuding with Sheamus over the WHC title in which time Del Rio may switch over and go after the WWE title.

Hopefully they can be a little more creative than that....
