The Gathering of the Flock for 2011?

Today is 1/27/2011, and I am being hopeful for WWE this year. Tonight's RAW was exactly what we needed, and now seeing Punk truly taking flight.
I will get to that more in a bit, but first, why this is what we are needing. Yes it started about Cena, but it evolved to again, being about the belt. And with the Rumble coming up where all the drama is being tossed into one big ole match with a few jobbers tossed in (hey I think I saw Darren Young and Primo on TV tonight!), the gold and wrestlemania are again being the top priorities. Tonight I saw some great matches. Ziggler vs Orton was brutal, Morrison vs Danielson simply stole the show, and some amazing heat being drawn by our champion.
And then there was Nexus...or NexuSES...or honestly now I am seeing, the Flock/Gathering/Nest for 2011. Punk is becoming very much like Raven was in the late 90's in all the right ways. The SES I think was a dress rehearsal. This is the main show. With the now cult status, him leading by example instead of hiding behind bodies, he is bringing back some elements of some of the darkest stables in ECW/WCW. With some wonderful WTF dialog and just scary moments, CM Punk is going to be stealing the show I think for quite a while, and like Mr. Scot Levy (Raven) will be a respected member of any locker room.
Now this will have to go head to head with the original Nexus group on Smackdown, but I hope they stave it off. Could we have a heel vs heel Survivor Series?
