Rumor has it that he was initially penciled in to end punks streak... that and with punks recent blow up with management and saying that he's being underused, this coukd very well lead to a wwe title run. Itd be great for not only the company, but the titles prestige. I mean I'm no "indy mark", but lets face it, pound for pound, the guy is the best wrestler on any roster. Not only that but he's so over. He gets some of the biggest pops of every show. Hes a great face and even better heel. Hes a safe decision to put the title on. Hes in a feud with the hottest group in forever (the shield) and not only got to work with but was praised by the undertaker. I apparently love me some d-bry.
