Who is the best right now?

If I haven't said it by now this is the furthest thing from a "workrate" blog.  My bias is towards stories and characters with much less emphasis on analyzing the in-ring product.  All that being said, I want to tell l you who I think is the best wrestler in the business today.  When I say "wrestler," I'm talking the overall package.  Keep that in mind now.

Without further ado, the best wrestler in the business right now is...CM Punk. 

Why CM Punk?  Punk has a tremendous mind for the business.  No matter what he's doing, he continually hits all the right notes.  He is a fantastic example of doing all the little things right.  He has a grip on what his character is, what it should do and he owns that character.  It doesn't matter if he's a face who is doing things the right way, a heel with a Messiah complex saving souls through Straight Edge or simply a sadistic heel who wants to destroy Randy Orton for a past injustice.

That, in short, is why CM Punk is the best in the business today.
