As side from the fact that Raw is floundering so much that they had to pull the Trump stunt they did , the burning question that brands the minds of most of the fans today is what to do with new world Champion CM Punk.

After the stroke of brilliance of having Punk cash in the MITB contract match against Jeff Hardy just seconds after he defeated Edge in an extremely brutal Ladder match last a couple of weeks ago. they have been gradually pushing him into the Heel role ever since.

The problem with this whole idea really depends on what Jeff Hardy's long term plans might be . He keeps hinting that he wants to take some time off and if that is the case then pushing Punk into a full blown Heel role is going to leave them in an odd position . If Hardy go's then that just leaves Rey against Jericho , Edge , and and Punk.

Turning one of those three back into a face doesn't seem to bee a real practicle move right nowsince you got a lot of time and effort involved in them being Heels. There is R Truth and John Morrison who could both use a bit of a push . But when you put all of this together with the Fact Edge and Punk are working Hurt and need some time off as well,Smack Down's main event guts are stretched real thin right now.
