The usually-predictable WWE definitely threw a curveball at us on Raw 1000.
CM Punk, one their most marketable and popular stars, as well as the current WWE Champion, is now a full-fledged heel.
And even though there are still tons of questions that need to be answered, this seems to be the beginning of something much much bigger then just a typical turn. The WWE wouldn't make such a controversial (yet heavily talked about) move without having a plan.
At least I hope they have a plan. We all know how great storylines have a tendency to either blow up in their faces or become so overcooked that nobody cares a few months from now.
CM Punk though, is different. He's a bona fide top-three earner in the company. He's arguably the best in-ring and mic guy in any promotion in any country. And he's holding the most important title in sports entertainment history.
Also, he's simply an awesome heel.
Simply put, the WWE can't screw this up, because CM Punk just won't allow it to happen. The pipe bomb is just waiting to go off again at just about any moment.
With that being said, here's five things that I (and hopefully all of you) want to see during CM Punk's fledgling heel run.
