Backstage News On CM Punk’s WWE Status, UFC’s Chael Sonnen On Punk Walking Out



cm-punk-8

We noted before that WWE was selling new CM Punk merchandise at WrestleMania Week in New Orleans. Punk is still getting royalties on his merchandise, which are pretty substantial. Even as of a few weeks ago, he was second only to Cena in merchandise sold. Officially, Punk is still not suspended, nor fired, nor released, but simply on a leave.

UFC star Chael Sonnen, who is friends with Punk, recently appeared on Wrestling Observer Radio and said he had talked with Punk at one point. Sonnen said at first he thought what Punk had told him, which one would presume to be that he had left the company, was a work, but said that as time has gone on, he’s thinking that it’s the truth.

    Makes me kind of believe the INJ-TBD status on the script. At least it makes me WANT to believe it. I could see it being one big troll of the internet and the dirt sheets. BUT, I acknowledge it’s highly unlikely.

    I think he will come back at the Royal Rumble win then face Daniel Bryan for the title. Makes sense. He will be missed at some ppv’s

    I think he will come back at the Royal Rumble win then face Daniel Bryan
    for the title at WM31 to sell out and have Shawn Micheals as the referee. Makes sense. He will be missed at some ppv’s

    • JR Texx (Jamie)

      Na, he didn’t come back at Chicago or Wrestlemania, he’s done.

    CM WHO?
