Re: CM Punk: was he shoved down our throats in the past year?
No, quite the opposite. For the first half of the year his relevance was at times questionable, and, as I recall discussing, he couldn't catch a main event if it was a barbed wire steel cage match with crocodiles in lava at ringside. That only changed around July-ish, and I've found Punk's exposure was at a healthy level, at least definitely more becoming for someone that held the supposed top championship for a half a year at that point.
Heaven is a place on earth.
