Since the start of 2012, CM Punk has maintained possession of his WWE Championship time and time again, walking out of the arena with the title belt still intact around his waist. Whether it be on Raw, SmackDown or even on a pressured pay-per-view, Punk has consistently stole the show with every title defense thus far against the likes of Chris Jericho, Dolph Ziggler and Daniel Bryan, among others.
Given Punk's recent heel turn that sent shock waves throughout the WWE Universe, this controversial change in character creates a variety of opportunities for the Voice of the Voiceless going forward. There's certainly a handful of tremendous talents that Punk has yet to face, and others I've been highly anticipating to see him face again.
While there's still a few months left before the culmination of the year, I hope to see these exciting matches occur soon. Not only do these selected bouts have the potential to be absolutely amazing, but they could also make for some very intriguing rivalries as well.
Without further ado, let's list the top 10 opponents the Straight-Edge Savior must face by the end of 2012, regardless of whether they're realistic or not.
