WWE News: John Cena's New No. 1 Contender for Capitol Punishment

Ricky AKA The JokerCorrespondent IMay 23, 2011

After John Cena defeated The Miz last night in a brutal "I Quit" match, one question is on everybody's mind: Who's next to challenge the champ?

Most of you must be thinking it's Alberto Del Rio, while others would be thinking it's The Miz once again. Well neither man will face Cena at Capitol Punishment.

Rumor has it, the man who will face Cena will be none other than CM Punk.

I know it's surprising for Punk to be the new No. 1 contender, considering his contract's expiring later this year and he's unsure if he want's to re-sign.

It's been said that Cena himself went to Vinny Mac and asked for a program with Punk.

Like I mentioned already, Punk isn't sure if he wants to re-sign with the company, and Cena feels that if he would be in the main events once again, he would probably stay in the WWE.

Obviously this will make most of the IWC fans happy since most (including me) feel Punk is the most underutilized superstar in the WWE.

Let's face it, Punk's the complete package: he has outstanding mic skills, great charisma and spectacular in-ring abilities.

He was the sole reason I watched SmackDown back in 2009 when he was a straight-edge heel.

He hasn't been doing that great lately, but I think it's Punk's time to shine once again.

Anyways, what do you guys have to say about this rumor?

Feel free to leave a comment below.

Until next time, Joker out.
