WWE Moves CM Punk From Main Roster To Alumni Roster

It would appear that CM Punk is no longer affiliated with WWE as his profile on WWE’s website was moved to the Alumni roster on Tuesday.

It has been widely reported that Punk’s contract with WWE would expire this month and that it’s unlikely that he would re-sign with the company.

    Still think it’s a work

    Hopefully that means he can still be playable character in WWE 2K15

    I dunno why, but i feel like this is all a major swerve to surprise fans when he does return. His contract is due to expire in a couple of days, and being moved to the Alumni section doesn’t mean jack since Brie is also there yet she is somewhat involved in a future storyline with Stephanie. I have this gut feeling (call it ‘hope’) that Punk may return possibly at Battleground or SummerSlam. I just think he’s trying to exceed the shock value from his ‘Pipe Bomb’ and this would be the most appropriate time. This is a very unlikely chance, but i can’t say i won’t miss the guy.

      Tbh, i agree. only reason why i believe he is returning is for 2 reasons. Cm punk is married to AJ Lee and the only time he would get to see her if he is back out on the road with her for wwe as the work 48-49 weeks of the year,
      Also wwe was bitching recently how wrestling is leaking onto sites like PWmania very easy and its killing wrestling.
      So i think they are trying to make a statement by moving him from the main roster to throw us off, WWE did a good job of a suprise return of chris Jericho.

    It was said that Punk’s contract expires 7/15/14 which oddly enough is today so if his contract did expire thats one thing. But if there was an extension and keeping negotiations a secret then… damn

    And may the rumors finally stop

    A part of me thought Punk would return on Raw in Podunk, VA since it would kind of be the opposite of his walking out in MITB in Chicago. But WWE was and has been heavy duty trolling anything regarding punk. So for all intents and purposes, he is gone to me.

    what we need to remember is that he is human and for the last 3 years or so he has been on the road, not done the things HE wanted to do, so maybe taking the time out will see an improved roster for wwe and a better attitude towards story lines for punk, HBK retired for pretty much the same reasons a few years back and then still returned as did y2j more recently, i think when the time is right he will be back. he just has to realise how much he misses in ring action. also as josh mentioned below, when will he see his wife aj lee. i think the right story line for him would be a surprise return at the royal rumble, would have given him a year off and then to win and headline mania 31 would be what he would want.
