— When CM Punk cashed in his Money in the Bank contract at Extreme Rules and took Jeff Hardy’s newly-won World Heavyweight Championship, many fans saw that as the start of a heel turn for the straight-edge superstar. According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WWE is keeping their options open regarding whether Punk is a babyface or a heel. WWE announcers have kept their comments about Punk ambiguous and are still gauging live fan reactions before deciding whether to do a full heel turn. The crowd response during his match with Jeff Hardy at The Bash will be a big factor in the decision.
