Last week on RAW, CM Punk announced that he is leaving WWE when his contract expires next month, the day after WWE’s Money In The Bank pay-per-view. Punk vowed to capture John Cena’s WWE title at MITB and leave the company as champion.
Punk made headlines last week by a statement he posted on Twitter, which was identical to a blog post he made back in 2005 when he was on his way out of Ring of Honor. He wrote last week:
“I knew I was gone at the beginning of the year. I just woke up one day and I knew. That’s the way I work a lot of the time. I think it’s creepy too, but it’s really helpful. I knew I’d be history by July. Come say goodbye on July 17th. I promise to go out with a bang. Trust me. XxX”
Over the weekend, Punk continued to shed light on how his decision to leave WWE is affecting him. He tweeted:
“It’s scary, doing something your whole life, and looking at a calendar to see you have just 23 more days of doing it.”
“Punk also Re-Tweeted one of Chavo Guerrero’s tweets about his WWE release being legitimate.
