Backstage News On Why WWE Isn’t Speaking Publicly About CM Punk’s Situation



cm-punk-12

WWE officials have began to de-emphasize CM Punk internally and they have the impression that he’s not coming back anytime soon.

One reason the company is not burying Punk publicly yet is because Vince McMahon really does like Punk personally. As noted, Vince still hopes the two sides can work everything out.

Another reason is they have a lot of time and money invested in Punk, they have the CM Punk name out in stores and other places and they want to protect that at best they can as long as it’s associated with WWE.

There’s a good chance WWE doesn’t even publicly acknowledge Punk is gone until his contract expires in July. For those wondering, once July comes and his contract expires, Punk will be free to do anything he wants.

    Lol that’s so true everytime wwe doesn’t get what they want they bury the hell out of it. Also I’m glad vince is handling it atleast he’s doing something right for once

      What really needs to happen is let CM Punk and Hunter square off. I believe Hunter is scared of him. CM Punk vs.Triple H. Now that would be…BEST FOR BUSINESS. What you say Hunter? Scared?

        That’s the big rumour as to why CM Punk quit though cos he didn’t see wrestling Triple H at Wrestlemania as a big “best for business” match so I would say it’s highly unlikely those two will ever square off against each other.

        are you new or something? CM Punk walked out because he didnt want to do a mania match against HHH

      • Negatist

        No, jerkoff… Punk is far better than Triple H. It doesn’t look good for Punk because HHH’s best days are behind him.

        Hahahahaha! Your mental!

    • Negatist

      …as if you would do any better, right?

    • TheUndertaker21

      no he doesn’t LIke punk, punk is a real punk. I hope not to see him again.

  • Raihan Khan

    vince should have inducted in the hall of fame long ago, i guess he will be soon, soon he retires

    • Mordecai

      he won’t go in until he’s dead.
