Since it looks as if Stone Cold Steve Austin will not be ready for in-ring action any time soon (or ever), CM Punk’s current “obsession” with wanting respect may lead to a payoff feud with the returning Undertaker.
Punk is expected to hold on to the WWE Championship until the Royal Rumble where he will drop the WWE title to the Rock and the Undertaker will return in the Rumble match itself, possibly with CM Punk costing him the match. This will lead to a “Streak vs Respect” match at WrestleMania.
