Report: Big Backstage Update On CM Punk & WWE Creative

PWMania has learned that WWE creative has been charged with “opening things up” and “to bring the audience back to expecting the unexpected,” but within the PG guidelines the company will continue to promote. WWE Chairman Vince McMahon and Executive Producer Kevin Dunn are believed to be very complimentary regarding CM Punk’s commentary, both because Punk takes direction well, and has been excellent off the cuff while staying within the boundaries set by McMahon himself.

“Punk is in his honeymoon period,” a WWE insider exclusively told PWMania this evening, “but with Striker losing brownie points, Punk has stepped into the slot as Vince’s favorite commentator.”
