It's too easy for the WWE to say CM Punk is behind The Shield. After watching the backstage segment with Vince I'm more convinced than ever that CM Punk will not be revealed as being behind the groups constant attacks.
There's only two names likely to be behind The Shield. After tonight, there's only one:
Look at the list of guys that have been brutally attacked by The Shield: Randy Orton, Sheamus, Team Hell No, Ryback, The Miz and now The Rock. The Shield has put their hands on John Cena, but they've never included him on their list of those guilty of injustice. But here's the question: Why would Cena be behind this group? Well it's possible WWE can play up the angle that the way fans treat Cena is in fact injustice. Injustice is defined as follows: unjust or unfair action or treatment. That's John Cena. Also, why would The Shield go after the names I mentioned and what does that have to do with Cena? All of those guys are fan favorites -- guys that Cena could view as threats to "his spot."
What does this all mean? Vince said that if The Shield interferes CM Punk will be stripped of the WWE Title. What if Vince puts the WWE Title up at the Royal Rumble Match or weeks later at the Elimination Chamber Match? That's the perfect time to have The Shield help Cena win the Royal Rumble and the title or win the chamber match. All along we thought it would be Rock vs. Cena for the title with Rock going in as champion. Why does that have to be the case? Cena could very well go in as champion with The Shield at his side against Rock.
What about CM Punk? This would endear fans to CM Punk. He would have been telling the truth all along. And the best part about this is that Punk's reign would end without him getting beat for the title. What about WM 29 and CM Punk? Well what if Paul Heyman was organizing with Cena and The Shield all along. How about CM Punk versus Brock Lesnar at WM since Brock is a "Heyman" guy.
This idea is far fetched. I know. But it's a possibility. John Cena needs to turn heel this year. WWE has enough babyfaces to carry the load while he's being a heel.
