Don't get me wrong, I loved their rivalry last year, and would've been fine with Cena/Punk: chapter II if they'd actually had the balls to turn Cena back at Wrestlemania. Firstly, It would've been interesting to see how a heel Cena/face Punk dynamic would actually work in practice, It would've almost certainly reinvigorated a fairly stale Punk & would've allowed Cena to .really. put Punk over as the face of the company.
And we also wouldn't have been stuck with this nonsensical heel turn where Punk is suddenly gone from a fighting champion to being a pussy in less than 3 months.
Originally posted by Wrestling Inc.WWE officials are pleased with the turn around the tag team division has made lately. They are especially high on Cody Rhodes and Damien Sandow. As noted before, reviving the tag team division was something Triple H has been behind.
This is good to hear as well ... The revived success of the tag team division has really come about a lot sooner than I'd expected. I'm hoping it will lead to another series of Wrestlemania TLC classics.

B) The headline on your link says "soon", and the body of the link says "the feud has not ended yet".
C) the Punk/Cena thing is not actually news, but something anyone could figure just looking at the schedule. The champion [Punk] faces Rock at Royal Rumble, so no Punk/Cena match there. Punk's got the Survivor Series match worked out already, no Punk/Cena there. That leaves TLC as the only PPV left, and that seems much more likely to be the Punk/Ryback rematch. Punk/Cena is not over soon, it's over, it ended when Cena led the Feed Me More chants.
The only way they're getting to Punk vs Cena again in this WrestleMania year is if Rock beats Punk, Cena wins the Rumble, and they do "One Last Cena vs Punk" match at Elimination Chamber (instead of a RAW Chamber with Rock) for the WM shot, and Cena gets his win back.
Which actually is a decent possibility now that I see it. So Cena/Punk is just on hiatus!
I'm pretty sure Ryback led to a smooth transition for Punk, while Vickie Guerrero and Dolph Ziggler have helpfully transitioned Cena to...whatever it is they're doing now. So I'd actually say the feud's already over for a while, as they can do one last round of Punk/Ryback at TLC before Punk gets Rock at the Rumble.
Not only is Cena facing Ziggler at SS, but that match is also most likely closing the show, because...you know...Cena.
I have faith in Foley. It will add some steam to Rock/Punk with Punk taking out Foley. What they do with Cena, I don't know and I don't care. If you want to make him interesting have him lose to Dolph.
The Wee Baby Sheamus.Twitter: @realjoecarfley its a bit more toned down there. A bit.
This is how I'd book Wrestlemania, bottom to top. (Assuming I have 5 hours (4 for WM, 1 for Heat)) HeAT match #1 (Interpromotional) Steven Richards/Sean O'Haire -v- Bryan Kendrick/Al Snow 4 minute match.
