STATE OF THE 'E: What Has CM Punk Done For You Lately?

On June 20th, 2011, CM Punk announced that his contract expires at midnight on July 17th, 2011 and that if he wins the WWE Championship at "Night Of Champions" he will walk out of there WITH the Championship in his possession. Literally. Leave the company and all with it.
In my mind, 3 things are going on here:
1.) CM Punk wins, messes everyone's head up and he actually WALKS OUT of THE 'E with their Championship. Now, what would happen? Well duh, that would force them to make a new belt. Which, they have already done so about a year ago if you believe all of the reports. It was said that: "They're just waiting for the right time to debut it."
Well, if Punk leaves the company high and dry, what better option would they have? I can forsee a tournament coming from this as well. THE 'E are building to something big with this theory if I'm proven correct next month.
2.) CM Punk loses, and walks away peacefully. That would certainly mess with people as well. Him promising that he'll leave with a bang and all this noise he's making... it's just something that would be clearly just the right thing to do. And he will be in his hometown as well...
3.) CM Punk loses, puts Cena on the injury reserve list. It's been documented that Cena has been nursing a lot of injuries as of late so, truth be told Punk could easily "beat" John down and that would give him ample time to heal so hea can go against The Rock next year. With that being said, Punk could still leave the company with the Championship and force the ending to option 1. as I stated a little bit ago.
In my eyes CM Punk is one of the greatest Super... wait, WRESTLERS that THE 'E ever got ahold of. I'm glad he's had such a great run with the company. With that, lets reflect on his accoplishments: (In THE 'E)
Taken from Wikipedia:
o ECW Championship (1 time)
o World Heavyweight Championship (3 times)
o World Tag Team Championship (1 time) – with Kofi Kingston
o WWE Intercontinental Championship (1 time)
o Mr. Money in the Bank (2008, 2009)
o Slammy Award for "OMG" Moment of the Year (2008) -- Cashing in Money in the Bank to win the World Heavyweight Championship
o Slammy Award for Shocker of the Year (2009) -- Forcing Jeff Hardy out of the WWE after Steel Cage match victory
o Slammy Award for Despicable Me (2010) -- Harassing Rey Mysterio and his family
o Nineteenth Triple Crown Champion
Straight Edge Society Leader (2009–2010)
The New Nexus Leader (2010–Present)
We can officially add his current "shoot" personality in there as well.
Personally, I think all of the contract negotiations have been settled and Punk will just take some time off. They're making too big of a fuss over it. Now, if I'm wrong on that... I wish him all the best in his career moving forward and yeah, I'm gonna miss him like hell but, I can only hope he shows up in IWGP or Dragon Gate. Nobody should go to TNA who's at a height like him.
