— For those who may have missed it, Michael Cole’s heel gimmick has been transitioned away.

People in the company pointed to earlier in the year when CM Punk was denied the opportunity to corner Chael Sonnen for a fight in Chicago. Part of the reason for denying Punk was the concern that no one would acknowledge Punk as a cornerman and it would hurt his crossover star power. That concern manifested with Triple H, who did not get any attention from mainstream media and was overshadowed by Justin Bieber also being in the entourage.
