Now what do we have here? The first thing you've probably noticed is that CM Punk got his own label. The reason he's an A List Anti Villain is, yes he's a heel, but the the guy has gotten more cheers in the last few weeks than John Cena. He still has all the traits of a heel, but with the fan reactions of a face. He might slip on either side of heel or face in the next few weeks, but for now he's the Anti-Villain that we all know and love.

Sheamus has made a little bump to A List after interacting with Christian and Randy for the last few weeks. We could be seeing him in the main event for Summerslam. Bad news for Cody Rhodes however, who might be dropping a level depending if he stays in the status he is at the moment.

Corre has pretty much faded, leaving Gabriel and Slater to fend for themselves. Either one of them could go to C List depending on how much show time they get on Smackdown. I'm not even sure who's heel or face, but Gabriel is getting a lot more cheers than Slater so the proof is in the pudding.

Everybody, let's give a round of applause to Rey Mysterio. I don't care if you don't like him, but he wrestled two great matches only to get Dolph Ziggler'd (unnoticeable or joke title reign) by Cena. Only a matter of time till his contract goes up in smoke.

Christian is now holding the WHC, so expect him to bring some new faces in the main event fued for a while. Doesn't look like Randy is going to be doing much of anything after Summerslam.

Looks like Zack Ryder is finally getting a little push (or at least a match against Michael Cole.) Now can we PLEASE help Drew McIntyre back to the B List. It is killing me that this guy is being washed up on Superstars.

That's all folks, leave comments.
