Good news for CM Punk fans, as it appears the WWE will be keeping the star relevant after WrestleMania 29.

The fact is, many a Punk fan has been worried that the "Second City Savior" may be tossed to the wayside now that he is no longer WWE champion.

Now, F4WOnline.com (via WrestlingInc.com) is reporting that:

Word is that one of the bigger feuds this coming summer and fall will be Punk vs. Brock Lesnar, which could suggest that Brock is turning babyface eventually.

Personally, I am a bit torn about this news. On one hand, you have what could potentially be a great feud. On the other, we might be seeing a monster Brock Lesnar become a baby-face, which to me, would be a huge mistake.

Especially considering how much heat he draws as a heel, coupled with the fact that he will have less options for potential feuds as a face. Let's face it, with the exception of Punk and Big Show, there really aren't any other full time heels that pose as a potential threat to Lesnar.

However, there are a ton of faces that have both size and stature that could make fans buy into a feud with the monster. Not to mention, the WWE doesn't need to turn either Punk or Lesnar face. Overall, they could build a feud around their shared business associate and still go into the match as heels.

Keep in mind, the WWE has done this with face wrestlers. In fact, one of its biggest 'Mania matches featured two of the company's biggest face stars Hulk Hogan and The Ultimate Warrior.

In the end, the WWE will do what they feel is best for business. So we will have to wait and see how this unfolds over the summer.
