The Latest On CM Punk’s Status With WWE

cm-punk

Monday’s WWE RAW from Chicago came and went with no sign of . Despite a report from Dave Meltzer and online speculation from several people in the industry, there were no plans at any point for Punk to be at the show. Since leaving WWE, Punk has had almost no contact with WWE officials. While it’s possible he could return down the road, the general feeling is that he’s done with pro wresting.

Paul Heyman’s promo on RAW was done to write Punk off television without burying him, in the event that he does eventually come around. Heyman blamed the WWE Universe for Punk leaving as a way to get the anger heat of Punk leaving onto him and Brock Lesnar heading into WrestleMania.

Moving forward, CM Punk is being removed from all WWE marketing and publicity material, as well as video packages that air on television and at live events.

  • RCW E-FED

    BYE!

  • Marvin B.

    Welp, there ya go folks…even if we were to see Punk i doubt it’ll be any time in the immediate future.

  • http://www.rabidpictures.com yrabadi

    What a scoop!

    Most connected the dots a week or two after he left.

    • RCW E-FED

      I feel you but, they gotta get the ones that are remotely interested in the guy informed. He was one of my guys I planned to ride with him to the end like I ride with Mark Henry no matter what. so i had to see what was what cuz he was in my “stable” lol. So this is the end

      • Marvin B.

        Lol someone else riding for Mark Henry? Then I’m riding for you bruh…honestly WWE been handling this Punk situation well imo.

      • http://www.rabidpictures.com yrabadi

        Yeah I know, he’s one of my guys too… and because of that, I could pretty much figure out that this wasn’t a work, and that he’s trying to teach WWE a lesson of some sort here. Plus with him gone, guys like Bryan are genuinely being elevated on the WMXXX card. Where would Bryan fit if HHH was feuding with Punk? Probably teaming with Cena against the Wyatt’s.

        Posts like these don’t really provide any new information on the situation. That’s all I was getting at.

    • Marvin B.

      I’m surprised some still think it’s a work honestly still

      • Forceton Banfodder

        If it is a work, then its the greatest work ever. At this point, I’m just enjoying how WWE is still raking in money off Punk by dropping rumors of Punk’s return. Bet Monday’s ratings were higher than usual.

        • justrockit

          Mondays ratings were lower

          • Forceton Banfodder

            Hmmm, Surprising, the show was better than usual.

        • QuiteFrankly2k

          Its not like they aren’t allowed to, they own “CM Punk” lol so they can make as much money as they need till his contract ends.

    • QuiteFrankly2k

      Heyman was told to handle the situation. Heyman did nothing but handle the situation. This was the perfect way to write Punk off of WWE. I knew Punk was gone, I had would have loved seeing him yes, but I was not someone who was going to cry if I did not see him. Paul Heyman cut an amazing promo, that man is a legend and guess what he makes them as well, besides Curtis Axel that is.

      • http://www.rabidpictures.com yrabadi

        Agreed. Completely.

  • RCW E-FED

    I used to really like Punk too whenever WWE debuts a new guy I try to pick who is gonna be huge in their down the line. Punk was one from the time I saw the little dude with no muscle no tattoos I still said I like CM Punk he’s my guy, he’s in my squad. But his last run annoyed me.. he was basically running the same five moves of doom match flow Cena was. He was very predictable and he encouraged all these fans to act like real Punks. The IWC troll population has doubled since his pipebomb. Everybody is such a whiny bEotch when stuff dont go their way nowadays. I’m not crying and pitching a fit because I really hate how Mark Henry and Big E are being booked.. Right now I feel like F*ck CM Punk…. F’N crybaby

    • Rick Yuhnke

      Defending Punk on the moveset. I have to think that is a WWE thing. No other organization except for WCW have any wrestler only executed a few manuevers. As for the rest, Punk sucks end of story

  • MC Phunk

    Leaving ‘money on the table’ (if I were him I would’ve listened to Stone Cold). I had hoped that a few weeks down and reflecting might get him back to at least have a huge pop in Chicago…Dang.

    • msk343

      Unlike Steve, he doesnt have that many ex-wives and children etc

  • 9 year old boy

    Man let this female dog go. I liked the guy so much until he ran out of his contract like a b!tch. If you’re not Cena then you are not going to be in every main event. Look at Orton, for 2 years straight he was in the midcard but he never ran and now look at him, he is back in the main event.

    • Jeremy-County Roberts

      well to be fair, Orton was in the mid card mostly do to his wellness policy violations.

      • Rick Yuhnke

        For as much as I hate Randall, Orton has never been anything but a company man and for that he gets pushed. When you rock the boat like Punk does, he figures everyone will turn on the WWE. The WWE does have its moment when it sucks, but this is all on Punk. He left, did not finish.
        Interesting he has not been out in public much nor made a single strainge twitter comment. As one person said to me, we can only go on the facts we know. Sorry Punk

      • Kjhaltz

        and immaturity and behavior.

      • 9 year old boy

        Even before that. Remember he lost clean to Mark Henry two ppvs straight and then after he started having a feud with Cody and then Barret after and then a feud with Kane at wrestlemania. This 8 year kid has an awesome memory ;)

        • Jeremy-County Roberts

          but yet YOU CAN’T REMEMBER TO CLEAN YOUR DAMN ROOM!!!!!!!! “awesome memory”

          • 9 year old boy

            Shhh don’t tell mommy!

          • Mr_Shrimp_Vendor

            Go to your room, son. You’re grounded! :p

      • AVPredator4985

        True. But either way he stuck it out and took his punishment.

    • Forceton Banfodder

      Orton is also under contract with WWE till 2019. So, not quite a good comparison.

      • 9 year old boy

        But the man was stuck in the midcard angle for 2 years after being on top. Punk was at least still on one of the top cards but the man left. But I will say this, he fudging deserved to headline Wrestlemania 29 with The Rock not Cena -_-

        • Forceton Banfodder

          Orton was in the doghouse because he failed a drug test, He screwed up and paid his time for it. Do you honestly think that he cared that he was mid-carding it while making the same pay as a main eventer?

          Difference here, Punk is passionate about what he does, Orton is lackadaisical.

          Punk fought to be where he was, Orton was born into it.

          Punk jumped through every hoop to get where he was, Orton just has to stay clean.

          You can’t compare them. One is a privileged spoiled brat and the other is a commoner. You can hate Punk for leaving, whatever, but comparing him to Orton is a joke.

          If Orton threw a temper tantrum backstage before a RAW like Punk, do you think Vince would’ve just let him walk away? Or do you think Vince would’ve given Orton whatever he wanted?

          • 9 year old boy

            I am not going to deny that one bit but even before the penalty he was stuck in the midcard angle. Remember he put Henry over clean 2 straight ppvs. Then after he feuded with Cody and then Barret and then Kane at wrestlemania. But overall you are right about him being pushed way too early was not fair but my favorite character of Orton was the legend killer. Hope your day is going well, I’m going to eat some pasta and watch Spongebob :D

          • suprowayne

            Yo kid i heard this randy crackhead orton smokes weed..is that true..?

          • 9 year old boy

            That he does. In fact in one of our Canadian gym they found Orton smoking weed in the change room. They banned him from that gym LOL

          • Forceton Banfodder

            Just for the record, but putting someone over doesn’t mean you’re in the doghouse.

            Look at the Cesaro/Zayn fight on ArRival last week. Zayn lost to Cesaro and got a standing ovation. It’s part of the job man.

          • Cujo999

            I’m sure it still burned Orton being stuck as a mid-carder. Being honest, Orton probably has all the going away money he needs and could retire comfortably if he didn’t like it. I think that at points in Punk’s career, he was passionate about what he did, but he had honestly been mailing it in ever since he dropped the strap to The Rock. As far as Punk “fighting” to get where he is, that’s a nice story, but it’s not reality. Punk was one of Paul Heyman’s favorites in OVW, and the only reason he was called up to WWECW so quickly is because he was one of Heyman’s boys. In fact, Orton spent more time in OVW than Punk did. Now, whenever one of HHH’s boys gets a quick call up from developmental, it’s because of “politics” or he’s an “ass kisser,” but when one of Heyman’s pet projects gets a quick call up, it’s because they “fought for it?” From there, Punk was an upper mid-card guy until WWE GAVE him the “pipe bomb” and he became a bonafide main eventer off of that. He didn’t fight for the pipe bomb. He was just going to leave. Who knows what Vince would have done if RKO threw a temper tantrum about how he was booked? Know why? He never has. Orton has never shown any problem going out there and jobbing clean to guys, unlike Punk. Heck, he’s the champ and has jobbed clean on national TV to young talent like Koffi and Cesaro. Who’s the last guy that Punk has jobbed clean to in a singles match? To my recollection, Undertaker at WM29. Punk has basically buried everybody he’s worked with since.

          • Vince

            You’re telling the absolute truth that the IWC doesn’t want to hear…he complained about The Rock taking a spot away but was fine with Stone Cold doing the very same thing…he’s simply a hypocrite…if Vince told him that he would main even WM30 with the wrestler of his choice but DB still won’t be the “face of the WWE” 99% odds says he would jump all over it,

          • Forceton Banfodder

            Oh noes, another closeted member of the IWC talking about the IWC.

          • Vince

            I do not call myself a member of the IWC because that requires complaining about everything. Facts are facts. Punk complained about The Rock headlining WM but was fine with Stone Cold doing the very same thing.

          • Forceton Banfodder

            You post on an Internet wrestling forum thus you are in fact part of the internet wrestling community.

            Facts are facts. CM Punk doesn’t care what you think and neither do I.

          • Vince

            If you don’t care what I think then don’t comment. So simple and you’re complaining like a woman on her monthly because my opinion isn’t what you agree with. Again, unlike you, I don’t spend my time complaining about EVERYTHING WWE does, or threatening to stop watching WWE, even though I know I’ll be watching RAW on Monday. Personally, I could care less if CM Punk ever comes back. I will still watch RAW and Smackdown, regardless of who’s there or not. You do realize that it’s stupid to say that you don’t care about someone’s comment, yet you reply to it.

          • Forceton Banfodder

            ^ Do you?

          • kassie13

            hey watch it with the woman comments wwe is kinda dull without punk

          • Forceton Banfodder

            Orton hasn’t thrown a temper tantrum ever? LMAO!!!

            Gee… I wonder if Mr. Anderson and Kofi Kingston would agree with you. Talk about burying guys… pffft…

          • Cujo999

            Anderson pretty much buried himself by legitimately injuring two of the WWE’s top draws in RKO and Cena, and yeah, Orton went off about it. However, my point is that he’s never thrown a temper tantrum about his “spot” or how he was booked.

          • Forceton Banfodder

            Tell that one to Kofi again?

    • Juan Man Gang

      actually punk didn’t run out of his contract it’s still good until july but he didnt like the fact of triple h bringing batista back because he thought it was “best for business”

    • QuiteFrankly2k

      Its not even about if you’re Cena or if you aren’t. Even though Cena does bury people, even though he does look like a million dollars, even though he sells merch, he does work his ass off.

      • 9 year old boy

        So does Punk. He sells the 2nd most merchandise and works his butt off just as hard as Cena and I would like to add Bryan to that list.

    • msk343

      I repeat CM Punk SHOULD NOT come back till he is given THE main event spot at WM. He should take a 4 year break like Batista or maybe a 7 year one like The Rock…

      • 9 year old boy

        But the question was he ever a big draw as The Rock or even Batista?

        • msk343

          I surely believe that he won’t get the boos like Batista is getting even if he comes back after 10 years to main-event WM.. and his merchandise sales were second-highest in the business….

          • oppa

            I think Paige is one of the top merchendise sellers right now. Doesn’t mean that she should get a top spot at WM.

          • msk343

            CM Punk is one of the best wrestler in the world. Far better than Randy Orton and Batista. Randy Orton is good but Batista is slow and boring… noone else deserves more than CM Punk to main event WM.. if you hear ” You can’t wrestle chants” and “This is boring” and random chants in main event of WM.. you would be doing something wrong

          • oppa

            I agree. I never thought much of Batista and I don’t like him getting treated like The Rock because he was never on that level. But the company got along fine after the departures of Rock, Austin and Hogan, which are arguably the three biggest draws they ever had. No matter what anyone things, they’ll do just fine without Punk. As long as people are talking WWE related topics instead of TNA, UFC or ROH, they’ll consider it a win.

          • kassie13

            shes not actually there trying to make her come across like aj lee does thats why she got her shot paige is the “new” aj. they attempting to recreate ajs draw in a new person. so the diva division will not die

        • suprowayne

          And the answer is Congrats bro..U r the MORON of the year….

        • oppa

          It’s hard to call Batista a big draw, but your questions is extremely valid. Rock did record business that only Hogan and Austin in their prime could touch. I’m not saying that Punk is valueless, but you have to be one of the greatest draws of all time to touch what The Rock did. Punk is on that level in Chicago, but not in a lot of other markets.

      • oppa

        Rock took a break? His contract ran up without being offered any type of extension, so basically he was fired. Then he went on to become a big box office star. If Punk can do that, great, go for it. But odds are not too many other people will put up with him having his “days”, “moods” and “moments” like WWE has for the past few years.

        • msk343

          CM Punk has done everything he wanted to except main event WM. He has enough money that he needs. So its the best move by CM Punk to leave WWE now… WWE does not need CM Punk.. CM Punk does not need WWE… so no problems..

          • Stijnosb

            yeahh right… Fighting The Undertaker is not Main Event but mid-card…. you get it bro

          • msk343

            by main eventing WM, everyone knows I meant the final closing match at WM which is the most important match of any ppv. CM Punk should have been wrestling The Rock at WM in the last match of the show.

    • gdaddy1971

      Punk didn’t leave because he wasn’t in the WrestleMania main event. He left because he was frustrated that the WWE keeps bringing in part-timers for the WM main events (i.e. Lesnar,Rock,HHH,etc.) and doesn’t give the young guys who bust their humps the rest of the year their due. He has said that Daniel Bryan deserves the main event, not himself.

      • Tyson Black

        im pretty sure Punk will come back in the future and think that he deserves the same treatment as Rock, Batista, Brock etc.

      • kassie13

        also hes had some issue with some nagging injurys

  • TotallyNotGlenn

    I haven’t been here in just about forever, nor have I followed WWE. This is a big shock to me. Sad to see the guy go…. He was one of the most talented wrestlers WWE had.

  • TNA

    TTTTTTTTTTTTTTNNNNNNNNNNNNNAAAAAAAAAAAAA

  • Anonymous18

    He’s not coming back any time soon. If he had plans, they had to be in Chicago. WWE did really well the entire show regarding Punk. Cult of Personality playing at the beginning was a great move and him getting acknowledgement was more than enough. Thing is, Punk is being a little baby not honouring his commitment but I still miss his mic and in-ring work. The fans lose out.

  • RoodyPooCandy ASS

    Good Riddence….Hes a crybaby. I can honsetly say i dont miss him. I respect his in ring work, but always found the guy annoying.

  • Drmgiver

    I do not believe he is done with wrestling at all. I do believe he is done with WWE however.

  • steven harris

    Well, I will say this, they haven’t buried him.

  • TrueFan

    I miss Punk man! He was the ONLY one to hold down the WWE in the last few years. He’s been the ONLY one who brought edgyness and “make you sick to stomach” promos. Do I blame him? Nope! WWE gives one of their top guy the “Best In The World” motto, yet keep him mid-card, playing around with dead end storylines, they under utilized Punk so bad, yet everyone is “EFF PUNK” now because they fail to realize that CM was a work horse with no results! the new WWE title was supposed to be given and presented by Punk, yet they screwed him on that one too and give it to the Rock only for him to lose it 2 months later.

    Hope he comes back in a year or so, and I PRAY to God he comes back with those Ice Cream bars!

    • RoodyPooCandyAss

      The Rock Sells tickets. PPVs and Merchandise…..Punk does not….simple as that.

      • Punk2k14

        Does Bootista sell more tickets as well???
        Orton vs Bryan vs Punk in the Mania main event would have been way bigger and better then Orton vs Bootista

        • Rick Yuhnke

          I agree about the match, but the belief in the WWE is that the entire card sells Wrestlemania. Over the history of Wrestlemania, how often has the main event, last match, been the best match on the card? Rarely for sure.
          The reason the WWE has gone with Randall vs David is because they trust both of them to do what is right for business. There is no trust in others to do the right thing.
          Plus, if there a wrestler that gets you to go toa wreslting match? For me, no one. I liked the aspect of the card, yell and scream so my voice was gone in the first match. It was for the card, not a star. My point being that Wrestlemania should sell as long as the card is solid, so screw the main event.

      • TheCorman

        Punk is the number 2 guy in the company merchandise wise. He’s also a decent draw and does have a large fan base. He’s not The Rock though that’s for sure…because there is…ONLY ONE…GREAT ONE!

      • Salamander1017

        thats a ridiculous comparison, you can’t compare people to someone like the rock cause it makes everyone except him look meaningless. punk has for sure proven he can sell a crap ton of merch, and atleast has some affect on ppvs, saying he doesn’t makes no sense.

    • Guest

      Punk beat Cena (their golden goose) CLEAN several times on PPV, held the title for 434 days, and ended up losing the belt to a future HOF’er and globally-recognized star. Then he was booked in a program with the Undertaker and made Taker look vulnerable, posing a legitimate threat to the Streak.

      He was given time off when he asked for it, and returned and got to work with Chris Jericho and Paul Heyman and Daniel Bryan and insert-your-guys-here that he wanted to work with. And you say Punk was underutilized? Punk was disrespected? Nope.

      • TrueFan

        After his loss to taker, yes. You can be a top star used in main event style without being in the main event. Punk has been so stale lately

    • Tyson Black

      The biggest mistake WWE has did as of late was not with Daniel Bryan but with unifying all these damn belts.

  • Guest

    what is “pro wresting”. damn secoops!! spell check!!

    • The_Rode

      Punctuation, please. Thank you.

    • CSSA

      i believe it is called Sports Entertainment.

  • Billy Guthrie

    I like punk liked him ever since his match with samoa joe on monster garage. I think though he is a tiny bit jealous of the way Daniel Bryan is so over sith the fans. I am probably wrong but thats just the feeling I have.

    • Punk2k14

      you are wrong!

    • Sigma ?

      Punk wanted Bryan to main event Wrestlemania this year be it as a champ or not. I don’t see how that shows any sign of jealousy at all.

      • Billy Guthrie

        Just heard he had a big ego thought he wanted that spot himself

        • Sigma ?

          Triple H’s nose is way bigger than anyone’s ego at the moment. Probably even bigger than Batista’s spotlight.

          • Billy Guthrie

            I will give you that

        • Punk2k14

          Punk and Bryan came up the ranks together they have respect for one another, they are both athletes who want the best for their own careers as do the rest of the locker room, it’s not jealousy…

        • Mr_DJ

          I think everyone has to carry some sort of ego in that business…plenty of horror stories in that place…

    • Reality

      Punk is more envious than jealous. Because three years ago he was in the same position, and the machine (I mean creative and promotion) didn’t really get behind him. Same thing is happening with Bryan. It makes Punk sick for various reason. Not jealousy. I’m not saying he’s not jealous, it’s a possibility. But it’s most certainly not the reason why he left. He left because WWE sucks. And I agree. As a fan, I hate Punk for leaving. Otherwise I completely agree with him walking out. The company hurt him. So he says f*ck you to this company back.
      Don’t be a fool and think they do this “for the fans”. They care about their own popularity for some, others do it because the love the business, or because they’re wrestling fans. But when you get f*cked in the ass by that business, you say f*ck you back. He gave up and doesn’t care now, doesn’t care about consequences, about fans etc.
      I don’t say he was right walking out like that. But people being that uncomprehending about it is… laughable.

  • sternard33

    I just wish that Punk himself would address the situation. Maybe he will once his contract officially expires in July. It would be nice to know the reasons he just up and walked out. Everyone can say it’s because of this or that, but only Mr. Brooks himself knows the reason and I feel he does owe it to the fans to at some point tell everyone what happened and why. He’s a tremendous talent and will always be one of my faves, but I feel it’s unfair to be left in the air wondering WHY.

    • Rick Yuhnke

      That is it. We all question the situation and what has happened, but we do not know. The thing is that Punk has really screwed himself over. There is not just the contract, but future stuff. He could have been like the Rock, return when he wants. HOF consideration, all gone until he tells the WWE he is sorry for acting like a child.
      Problem is he is no Rock, Undertaker, Austin, or Hogan, he was never the reason people went to events, IMO

  • oppa

    While many people put Punk on a pedestal, the truth is he’s been looking out for himself the whole time. I’m not saying he’s wrong for it, but that’s what he’s been doing. He’s upset about people coming back part time to wrestle, but wants Austin to do that for him. He complained about The Rock coming back, until he wrestled him at the Royal Rumble and got a big payday from it. Then, somehow, it made sense to have the biggest movie star come to WWE and wrestle. And now that he’s not in the main event of Mania and he won’t get the payday he feels he deserves, he walks out. I’m quite sure other people will take his spot, his bus and his first class travel accommodations and feel blessed. And I’m sure there’s less whining and complaining in the locker room now. If you’re WWE, you have to focus on the people who show up to work, not on someone who’ll show up only if he gets his way.

  • Tyrant

    I don’t know man, I just can’t go off on a rant and piss on Punk until I hear his side of the story. I hate that he’s gone, especially since I don’t completely know the reasoning behind it all. He left in an unprofessional manner (I think we all agree on that), but if he left because of health issues or because how things are run, I can’t be mad. We all have or had jobs where we said “man if I hit the lotto, I would never come back to this place”, I think Punk was actually able to live this out. We’re not in his shoes and don’t know what he’s thinking, so until then, I’m going to reserve judgement and applaud him for sticking it to the man and being able to still enjoy life.

  • Gary Wofford

    As soon as we see WWE has erased him completely then I believe……

  • RoA1998

    I’m just grateful for some of his best matches I have on dvd!! If he does return it will be at least SummerSlam or Royal Rumble 2015….

  • Vince McMahon

    a surpirse Punk return next January at the Royal Rumble in January would be nice. It gives him time to heal, and accomplishes the two things he’s never done, win a Royal Rumble and main event WM in what could be his last great run. And hey, maybe we could finally get our dream WM main event of Punk vs Bryan.

    • http://www.rabidpictures.com yrabadi

      Not. Gonna. Happen.

      • Vince McMahon

        would be*. even I realize that its a very remote longshot.

        • http://www.rabidpictures.com yrabadi

          I think it’s impossible. The guy walked out. They’re not going to bring him back and bow to him. WWE wants to remain the alpha in the relationship.

          • Vince McMahon

            Batista left and trashed the company’s product and creative team, whose to say Punk can’t. And WWE has to realize it was their fault he left, & they’ll realize they should’ve listened to him and the fans once WMXXX is over.

          • http://www.rabidpictures.com yrabadi

            Well, I would argue Batista was never as big as Punk. Upon Batista’s departure, did people even care? Was it news? Was it the talk of the town? It didn’t even make a dent. Punk leaving was a big deal. It brought a lot of eyes to WWE and WWE’s flaws (the ‘reasons’ Punk left).

            Additionally, I would assume Batista and HHH are pretty tight due to their time together in Evolution… Punk and HHH have seemingly never been on good terms.

            Lastly, I’m sure part of the reason WWE brought Batista back was in part due to his ‘success’ outside of wrestling. He’s not on The Rock’s level, but GOTG will be a huge hit this Summer, and WWE is counting on bringing eyes to their product through cross-promotion.

            I’m not saying it will never happen, I’m just saying I don’t think you could compare it to them bringing Batista back. If anything, compare it to them bringing Austin back.

            you’re right when you say Austin is a better comparison, but in both Batista and Punk its not like Jericho where both sides were and are on perfect terms, whether its from the WWE or Punk/Batista, there was some animosity somewhere there. And whose to say Punk won’t do anything successful? Even though he probably wants out of the spotlight, I wouldn’t count out a debut in MMA for him.

      Anytime I read your comments, I read them in Vince’s voice. LOL

    • Punk2k14

      Bryan vs Angle more likely next year at Mania after Angles recent comments.

  • Johnson

    I can’t really say I give a shiit anymore. It’s not even a big loss. And ironically he left just a little while after he lost clean to Roman Reigns on RAW.

    • Johnson

      Also to add:
      Punk likes to have it his way… and he likes holding the company hostage so to speak until he gets it. He probably wants them to beg and then meet all his demands. But they really don’t need him at all, and he’s easily replaceable. So maybe Punk is a bit full of himself and really does think he’s the ‘best in the world’ lol

      I don’t quite remember it being “clean.”

      all the more reason why CM Punk was right to leave

  • Josihdanger

    Whats awesome is how you all are still queering out over all of this. DEAL WITH IT. R.I.P. Punk. Good to see that Mr. Brooks is now just living his life. Least he was smart enough to walk away from the WWE’s bad desicions.

  • msk343

    In a few years, Undertaker would not be able to wrestle in my opinion. In a few years, getting The Rock into WM will get old. Simple economics tells us that if CM Punk stays away from WWE for a while, the demand for CM Punk will be greater. Surely, when the right time comes, WWE will want CM Punk to comeback and main event a WM.. easy! why should CM Punk work his ass off with injuries to midcard PPVs after PPVs when he he already has enough money and can possibly main event WM without being in WWE later like Batista and co…

  • TVR

    Punk is a douche plain n simple. You should finish out your contract then leave like a professional. The WWE doesnt need punk so i would tell punk to go screw himself if he wanted tocome back

    The truth about CM Punk in this photo. Now forget about this punk and lets move on.

  • Brody

    CM Punk is the REAL B+ Player. Daniel Bryan surpassed him already in a span of two years.

    Punk has a problem with part timers I hear. Well they just bring Vince more money. Plain and simple.

    • Joshidanger

      Botch Lesnar does not make more money than Punk. He couldn’t even really take a pen to the hand to really sell the Undertakers attack. I would have let taker stick that pen right through my hand.

    I undertsand where Punk is coming from as far as busting his ass and pretty much having to wait until the last second to get a mega push, but he is an idiot for breaching his contract and has lost some of my respect. The guy had the WWE title for 400+ days, both as heel and face and has had alot of creative control in his career, hell he wrote the whole SES storyline. Now because he didn’t win Royal Rumble, he is whining. So now he loses all his merch royalties and the remaining money from his contract and also any shot of getting any prolonged push in the WWE anymore. I think this is just him posturing for a “part-time” WWE career ala Rock, but he will be more of Y2J/RVD type guy in WWE from now on. Keep throwing your hissy fits Punk.

    • Mr_DJ

      -He held the title for 400+ days

      Yet he still took a backseat to part timers and John Cena. Yeah, he main evented Royal Rumble and Elimination Chamber w/ Rock, but that goes back to him taking a backseat to a part timer. When they had Cena win the Rumble, anyone with sense knew Rock was going to beat Punk for the title. Rock vs. Cena was barely tolerable the first time around, what made them think the sequel would be better? Every time Punk had a match w/ Cena, they were both on point. He did have quality matches w/ Jericho, Bryan, Cena and then Taker at WM, but his overall championship reign was booked crappily and the only person who looks worse now is the current holder, Randy Orton.

      -Whining because he didn’t win the Rumble
      Assumption w/out any real backing and the Rumble itself was booked badly in general.

      -He came up w/ the SES storyline
      Which ended up being killed by creative after pretty much everyone not Punk was released. Then he was tossed into Nexus, which was already half passed dead.

      He has valid reasons for being pissed off with the overall direction of the company and the handling of his character, Steve Austin did as well. Though I’m certain mostly everyone is in agreement that he shouldn’t have walked out.

    Ive watched wrestling since 1989, My all time favorite was Shawn Michaels when he was a rocker and knew hed be a success. My point being, I can honestly say that Seth Rollins is the most entertaining wrestler in WWE. The dude is insane. Sells moves like a veteran and is by far faster and more unique than bryan and punk. You mark my words, all this talk about Bryan, and punk being so amazing, rollins vs either one of thos guys would be epic.

  • Chris 6q4

    CM PUNK: “Do I have everyone’s attention now?”

  • Callum

    i havent missed Punk tho because they are pushing cesaro now so im all good

  • tronthemon

    There’s nothing wrong with quitting your job while under contract. All it does is relieve WWE from honoring their portion. He left, and he won’t get paid…He knows that, and obviously doesn’t care. I don’t see why you guys care so much…like you’ve lost all respect for him because he didn’t fufill his contract. lol The guy doesn’t want to wrestle anymore. We don’t really know why and it doesn’t really matter.

  • Kevin G. Wolfe

    If he wasn’t in Chicago, Punk is done for at least a year. I don’t think Punk can be done with pro-Wrestling, they all come back eventually unless they’re injured beyond repair.

  • Pfc Mark Kevin Apalisok

    NO CHANCE IN HELL HE’LL RETURN CAUSE He stated before in couple of years he will retire to wrestling same he did like Bill Goldberg!

  • Dixie Carter

    From what I’ve heard AJ Lee is down on all fours to keep her job, since she can’t control her man…Vince decided it was time for AJ Lee to be the liquid bucket for his mates high up. Pat, Jerry, Free Bird, Russo, himself, and a few of the cronies all got her and had a good time.
