– There have been talks in WWE creative meetings about giving World Heavyweight Champion CM Punk a bodyguard. The original idea was to put Ezekiel Jackson with Punk since he did well as Brian Kendrick’s bodyguard but WWE wants him to develop more on the ECW brand.
Festus has also been talked about as Punk’s bodyguard with the storyline that Punk either got him “off his medication” or would be controlling him by “feeding him pills” to enhance Punk’s heel straight-edge gimmick. This is why Festus has been off TV in recent weeks, in case they decide to go forward with him as Punk’s bodyguard.
