The sports-entertainment organization has yet to promote his appearance on the 30-minute discussion panel program, drawing his ire Tuesday. He tweeted, “Yes, I will be on @AMCTalkingDead on Sunday. Shocking how WWE didn’t promote it or get AMC the proper materials in time to announce it.

“I will also be the Grand Marshall in the Chicago turkey day parade. Also not announced or promoted by “my” company. Shocking.

“This is what happens when you go over everyone’s head to hustle and acquire your own outside appearances. #DIY


“Was promoted on Monday. Wasn’t Sunday night when it was supposed to be. Ball dropped. S’okay. I’ll pick it up and score like I always do.

“Looking forward to discussing @WalkingDead_AMC Sunday on @AMCTalkingDead Tune in!”

Sunday’s episode of The Walking Dead airs at 9:00 p.m., following by a replay at 10:01 p.m. Talking Deadwith Punk will then air at 11:00 p.m.

– This week’s WWE Raw scored 219,758 in social media activity, which was down 13 percent compared to last week’s Raw leading into Survivor Series. Raw ranked #2 on cable TV, trailing ESPN’s Monday Night Football blow-out according to Trendrr.TV.
