This. If I can believe that Triple H can beat Brock Lesnar, I can definitely believe that CM Punk can beat him. I realize that no title will be at stake in their matches but CM Punk vs. Brock Lesnar is a headliner, pure and simple. In fact, I would love to see this feud evolve into a submissions match by MitB or even Summerslam.
I have never really been a huge Mark Henry fan but damn if I didn't mark out hard when he destroyed John Cena. Who knew that a Mark Henry face turn was coming?! Unfortunately, the thing that gave the whole deal away for me was John Cena's reaction to what Mark Henry's speech while he was standing on the apron. I also found myself rolling my eyes when Cena made his comment about the next person to win the WWE Title having to earn it. Aside from that, Mark Henry played his part perfectly and he earned a new level of respect from me.
I am extremely interested in the Dolph Ziggler's feud with Alberto Del Rio. I missed WWE Payback but does this mean that they are turning Dolph in response to Del Rio's heel turn? If so, it's going to be interesting to see how this storyline plays out with all of the players featured. I hate the fact that they had to cut Ziggler's title reign so short but having him chase it and earn in back eventually will be pretty damn rewarding.
Finally, Christian is back! I hate the fact that he is being placed back in the mid-card so soon but realistically there really isn't a main event spot for him right now. I have never really been a Del Rio fan, so I would be more interested in a heel Ziggler/face Christian feud but that's just not in the cards right now. Weird question, did he look leaner to anybody else? Christian has never been the biggest guy in the locker room but he looked thinner than normal.
I think Brock vs Punk will probably not even happen until Summerslam, now it could possibly be at MitB but I see it more as a Summerslam match. They will have a slow build over the Summer I think, Punk facing someone else at MitB, possibly even being in one of the MitB matches only to be cost the match by Heyman or a Heyman Guy (Brock/Axel).
I absolutely agree with all you said about Ziggler/Del Rio. It will be interesting to see how things play out with Ziggler being a face and the rest of his little group (AJ/Big E) being heels. I think there will definitely be some tension there, with Big E having a couple victories over Del Rio, he should be in line for a title shot I would think.
Christian is just getting older dude. Like you said he has never been one of the more muscle bound guys, so I think he is just thinning out with old age.
