Re: When CM Punk loses the WWE Championship, He will be a midcarder again
Of course he will. WWE's trying to focus on what they think will be "the next big thing". They tried Miz, Orton, Barett, and Punk. For one reason or another, none of them worked out. So yes, Punk will be out of the spotlight, and will probably be below Orton in terms of booking and status, since Orton (for some reason) is super over right now.
That's how the business works, really. It'll be interesting to see WWE's next experiment once Punk's out of the picture.
