How is he pushed back at all? Just because he has some losses he's pushed back? I may not agree with the story formula that the creative uses where good guys prevail over bad guys when it's most important, but Punk is far from pushed back. He may not be the face of the company, but it's safe to say that he is established as a top name. The Undertaker was never the face of the company, but he did what he loved and that's performing for us. He won many times, but he also had bad patches in some of his storylines and to this day he's still a top name.
The fact that Punk not being a wrecking machine disappoints some is strange. His character is not that archetype. He is cunning yet imperfect. You need to realize this. You need to realize that that's a big reason why he's so over with certain people and yet it still isn't good enough.
So he isn't in the "main event" this year. Wait till next time.
