Update On CM Punk Quitting WWE

As previously reported, CM Punk reportedly quit WWE on Monday after a meeting with Vince McMahon held prior to RAW from in Cleveland, Ohio.

WWE has since “unfollowed” CM Punk on Twitter and removed the “CM Punk: Best In The World” documentary from Netflix.

We noted that part of the reason for Punk’s departure was frustration over part-time wrestlers coming in and leap-frogging full-time talent and securing the main event positions in the company, especially for top events such as Batista and the upcoming WrestleMania XXX show.

According to various fan reports from Punk’s Q&A session at the Wizard World Comic Con event from Portland, Oregon last Friday, Punk said that even though he is friends with Batista, this is Daniel Bryan’s year and it’s ridiculous Bryan is not going to be part of the WrestleMania main event.

Punk also spoke about his in-ring work being reduced to “two moves per match” and commented, “I show up. Someone tells me what to do and I just go out do it and leave.”

During an interview with Ariel Helwani last week (view here), Punk said that his WWE contract expires this summer and noted that he probably wouldn’t even be a pro wrestling fan anymore if he wasn’t a WWE Superstar himself.

CM Punk has been the #1 worldwide trend on Twitter for most of the day. WWE has yet to acknowledge the situation.
