Well, it now appears that the long-awaited pairing of CM Punk and Paul Heyman is officially underway.

As we all know, last week Paul Heyman was the driver for CM Punk's limo, which sent the IWC into a tizzy.

This move was something many fans had anticipated since "The Summer of Punk." Now, here we are a little over a year later, and fans are watching this duo come together for the first time on TV.

To further add fuel to the fire, Heyman took to Twitter to defend his cohort:


Needless to say, the WWE is doing the right thing here. It appeared Heyman would not be around until the return of his "client," Brock Lesnar. Now, one has to wonder if we could be watching the beginnings of a new "Dangerous Alliance."

For those of you who are unaware of this faction, it was a group created in WCW with Heyman as the manager. The group consisted of Rick Rude, Bobby Eaton, Arn Anderson, Larry Zbyszko and "Stunning" Steve Austin—yes, that Steve Austin.

The faction name was utilized by Heyman prior to, and after, this version, however, the WCW group was by far the most relevant and talented. If Heyman were to form a new faction, Punk and Lesnar are great pieces to build around and allows Heyman a chance to stay relevant during Lesnar's absence.

Overall, we don't know what the WWE has in store for Punk and Heyman. But one thing is for sure, if both men are involved in the creative process, this could turn into something big.
