– CM Punk has had one of the longest WWE title reigns in years, but it’s becoming increasingly apparent that WWE is not entirely sold on long term title reign for the Chicago native.
Once again, WWE officials came very close to having CM Punk drop the WWE Championship to Daniel Bryan. Sunday’s No Way Out pay-per-view was the second consecutive event that WWE nearly pulled the trigger on the title switch.
While WWE is said to be very pleased with the way Punk has performed as champion (despite his title defenses not main eventing WWE PPVs), the company is also very high on Daniel Bryan and there is a feeling that more money could be made with Punk chasing Bryan for the championship.
The most likely scenario moving forward will be for AJ Lee to turn on CM Punk and help Daniel Bryan finally capture the WWE Championship – breathing new life into the Punk-Bryan feud headed into the summer.
