Report: Backstage Updates On The Rock & CM Punk

WWE Chairman Vince McMahon spent a considerable portion of today’s meeting with the Raw writing staff and the producers talking about The Rock’s star power and what The Rock’s return has meant to WWE. According to a key source in WWE, McMahon also spent a lot of time talking about how WWE has to “promote, and promote hard” the new WWE Champion CM Punk and his relationship with the audience.

Behind the scenes, many are wondering if Punk is setting up a potential match with The Rock with his comments about Rock’s attitude behind the scenes. But according to several wrestlers in the WWE locker room, Punk has not hidden the fact that he feels WWE needs to promote the full time players in the locker room, and that Rock is not respectful to the members of the locker room who are on a full time schedule.

“Punk is Punk,” a Raw wrestler told us exclusively, “he’s not kidding when he says that what you see is what you get. He doesn’t sweat anyone.”
