There are have reportedly been many talks backstage on how to book CM Punk when he returns to WWE tomorrow night at Payback. WWE is expecting him to be cheered when he comes back, despite being one of the best heels in the company.
There are discussions of turning Punk into a face because of this and because he has one year left on his contract. Apparently now the WWE is leaning towards him turning face sooner rather than later.
