it has to be Punk..no other person would have been established enough to face Bryan for the title by then....I'd love for it to be Cesaro or Rollins, but they won't be main event level by then.

Bullshit.

A) Those were prelim numbers and they were higher than Punk/Cena's prelim numbers from the year before when the Summer of Failure was beginning.

B) Punk/Lesnar was the main angle highlighted on the go home show of RAW right before the PPV. Does Punk smashing a camera over Lesnar's head and knocking him out ring a bell?

C) All up to SS every Punk mark here was saying Lesnar/Punk would close the show because they are the bigger match, now the prelim numbers are out and it's all on Bryan who was having his first main event push ever as opposed to Cena, Lesnar, and Punk who've been main eventers forever. How convenient.

Those are only prelim numbers. If they stay low then all should be blamed but WWE already knows more concrete numbers and have for quite a while now and yet Bryan closes not only every Raw but every Smackdown as well. That says way more than some prelims buys do.

@Sandrone: Appreciate the writing but too lazy to read through your fantasy booking of "what will probably happen". I can understand talks of the match happening but in the MAIN EVENT? Lol, forget about it. It's almost as bad as those who say some shit about Bryan and Punk redoing the Benoit/Eddie embrace to close the show. That would be embarrassing and a parody of a real heartfelt moment.
I believe Punk/Bryan will happen this year at Mania 30. It will not close the show but it will co-main event. The Vince's Champ (Austin or Cena)/HHH match will close the show. Let's not get hung up on the phrase main event. Edge/Del Rio was a co-main event 2 years ago and it OPENED the show....same with Sheamus/Bryan for the WHC last year. Both Sheamus and Del Rio were RR winners who were guaranteed the right to main event (loosely) at Mania.

The WWE likely doesn't give a shit about Night of Champions or Battleground....so buyrates are not even an issue. they're just pleased that the ratings are staying consistent during the NFL, can't be nothing but proud of that fact...and Survivor Series and Royal Rumble are probably the ones they'll go all out for.

As much as I love Punk, I don't see why everyone is thinking a 1 on 1 is gonna happen as a co-main event between him and Bryan at Mania. They're both the biggest faces in the company right now and turning one of them heel would be horrendous. Punk can really only sell matches as a heel unless he is working with a really really good heel and we all know Bryan isn't one.

I think by the time WM is here, a Bryan/Punk match will be credible enough to sell a co-main event, but I'm just not really sure what the hell the feud would be about..

Bryan will get redemption against Triple H at Wrestlemania while John Cena and CM Punk settle their rivalry once and for all at the grandest stage of them all.

Anyway, yes they're saving it, and it sucks, and Punk deserves far better, but he never gets the big programs at WrestleMania, it's always the geeks, except this year. Even worse, Punk is gonna job to the fucking troll.
If that was the lowest drawing Summerslam then Cena, Punk and Lesnar would all be equally culpable as they were also in main event matches. Bryan's main event push as top guy has only really started since Cena has gone off TV and since Lesnar has left the Punk/Heyman angle.

I don't know about the main event but Punk will be facing either Cena or Bryan at Mania. Punk vs Cens has been a match deserving to close a Wrestlemania for some time, while Bryan will have likely cemented his position as the top face by then, so either of these two matches is possible.

Main event will likely be the Taker match.
