That said, they need to just make him the anti-hero that he's been the past few weeks. Challenge authority, keep using the "pipe bomb" (mic) to cut people down and let the crowd react how they may depending on the circumstances. Basically, let him keep being CM Punk. The crowd will probably keep cheering him (at least for now), but hopefully WWE doesn't try to make the crowd cheer him.

I hope that made sense.
I don't think they have to do anything to make the crowd cheer him. He got a bigger pop in Boston than Cena did the week before the PPV. As a babyface. After years of working as a heel. And he made that turn in all of two weeks. He did what Randy Orton has been able (or willing) to do for what, 2 years now? I think for as much trouble as they had getting CM Punk chants going during Raw last week, if he'd been in Green Bay, the reaction for him would have been off the charts.

If they do this right (don't cut him off at the knees, don't force him into a heel role) he's the closest thing to a legitimate superstar that they have. And when i say superstar, I'm talking Rock and Austin level, not the next John Cena, who's the biggest star they have right now, but nothing close to the Attitude era.

But they do have to let him be him. You're right about that.
