Orton Should Face CM Punk Upon his WWE Return

WWE Superstar Randy Orton is nowavailable to return to WWE after serving a 60-day suspension (received on May 30) due to violatingthe WWE Wellness Policy a second time.

Before being placedon the sidelines, Orton was the biggest name on Smackdown, and this seems like the perfect opportunityto return and make a big impact.

Right now, the world heavyweighttitle picture is set for the foreseeable future, with Sheamus locked in and Alberto Del Rio and Dolph Ziggler waiting in the wings.

In terms of the WWE title, CM Punk looks to defend in arematch against John Cena at SummerSlam.

Then the door is open for a new fall rivalry—this wouldbe a perfect position for a villainous Orton to engage in a months-long rivalrywith Punk, culminating at Survivor Series.

Much like with Christian, the pair would put on entertaining matches. The story seems built in—CM Punk is upset that the spotlight has been placed on John Cena and The Rock while he has been champion, and after vanquishing Cena at SummerSlam, Randy Orton calls Punk out as being awhiner and complainer. He claims that he himself deserves tobe champion.

Perhaps Orton's Wellness Policy violations will be woven in on camera as well, given Punk's straight-edge lifestyle.

I have been a big advocate for CM Punk to enjoy a years-long title reign—I would liketo see him hold the WWE title for the longest period of time since Hulk Hogan from 1984-1988.
I feel that it would be a two-way street of benefit, with Punk being classified as one of the greatest champions of all time, and the WWE title being defended by a champion who doesn't lose the title for a very long time, thus placing even more importance and value on the title.

With The Rock waiting in the wings at the 2013 Royal Rumble, Randy Orton could be the perfect candidate to bridgeCM Punk from Cena to Rock in a money WWE title rivalry.
In another situation, The Rock could beat CM Punk at the Royal Rumble, become WWE champion andmeet John Cena at WrestleMania 29 in a rematch. The only reason I don't like this scenario is because The Rock would presumably not defend the title until WrestleMania.

Not that the "30 day" rule matters all that much, or is even enforced anymore.
