Since capturing the WWE Championship at Survivor Series last November, CM Punk has proved himself to be a fighting champion by overcoming every obstacle he's encountered. With successful title defenses over the likes of Alberto Del Rio, The Miz, Chris Jericho and even Daniel Bryan, Punk has quickly restored prestige into the dying title and become the hottest commodity the company has to offer in the process.
Should Punk pull out yet another title victory at the No Way Out pay-per-view next month, he will exceed Triple H's lengthy 210 day reign as the longest reigning champ in the PG era set back in 2008. If the Straightedge Superstar walks out of East Rutherford, New Jersey on June 17 still WWE Champion, who will be next in line for a shot at WWE's golden prize?
Be sure to keep in mind that the following list of candidates doesn't solely included who's worthy of the title shot—since Superstars such as John Cena and Chris Jericho have already had their respective shots—but rather potential feuds I hope to see Punk engage in over the strap this coming summer.
