Backstage News on How WWE Plans on Booking CM Punk
We noted earlier this week here on DWN that word going around backstage at Sunday’s WWE TLC pay-per-view was that CM Punk is penciled in to feud with new WWE World Heavyweight Champion Randy Orton in early 2014.
The other Punk related talk going around at TLC was that the company is planning on pushing Punk as the anti-corporate Superstar once again.
If WWE decides to go in that direction, it would be a stopgap to Punk’s program at WrestleMania XXX. While the dream match against Steve Austin is still something WWE officials would like to have happen, there has been more consideration towards a program with Daniel Bryan as of late, as we noted here on DWN. One of the biggest things Punk has been frustrated with lately is the lack of long-term booking in regards to his character.
