In what can only be described as a whirlwind pro wrestling news day the CM Punk leaving WWE facts and rumors have been pouring out from various sources. It’s no secret that Punk wanted to headline a Wrestlemania and with Batista returning to take the spot, and Punk most likely feuding with Triple H culminating at Mania – he decided his dream was probably not going to come true anytime soon.
The WWE Even unfollowed CM Punk meaning that it is definitely official since the WWE believes so strongly about social media and its impact.
Mike Johnson of PWInsider wrote the following earlier:
“Former WWE and World champion CM Punk has been pulled from all advertising of WWE live events going forward after a meeting with WWEmanagement yesterday at the Raw taping in Cleveland, Ohio.
We have been working on details for the last 24 hours (as Dave Scherer and I noted on our respective Elite audios earlier today), but the belief among those who are willing to talk about the situation is that Punk is no longer factored into company plans. Punk is under contract to WWE through July.”
Former WWE Tag Team Champion Matt Hardy took to Twitter in support of CM Punk.
“So Punk allegedly walked out & quit WWE. Interesting. It’s impossible 2 understand the toll that job can have on you-unless you’ve lived it.”
“A “screw you” from Punk? NO. Punk’s gotta prioritize his own sanity & health. Sometimes WWE isn’t conducive to those two things.”
“From my experience- When you’re in constant physical pain, frustrated the majority of the time, & resent what u love, things have to change.”
Steve Austin is ready to discuss all the latest drama in WWE and will be taking phone calls for his podcast on Monday. He tweeted the following today:
“Monday I will be taking phone calls to discuss the latest drama at @WWE and get your thoughts on DB, Punk, etc. Stay tuned… #SAS”
CM Punk then acknowledged the support he has been getting, regarding the recent rumors, in a Tweet Monday evening.
“Thanks for all the support. Keep being you guys, it’s pretty cool.”
