CM Punk Reportedly Taking Time Off After WrestleMania 29

Posted by Matt Boone March 20, 2013 5 Comments

- As noted, CM Punk has been pulled from the rest of the live events leading up to WrestleMania 29 so he can heal up and be fresh for the big match against The Undertaker. Punk is still scheduled for all RAW TV shows and is still advertised for WWE’s European tour the week after WrestleMania.

However, word now is that Punk may not be working most live events here in the United States once WrestleMania is over, leaving John Cena to once again be the top draw for RAW live events. Punk not working live events after WrestleMania is expected to be for the short term.

With Punk taking time off, there’s a feeling that he has helped carry the company for a while now and WWE needs to protect their investment.

      Punk deserves the time off. He’s carried the WWE on his back for almost 2 years. He’s been on the best heel run since Piper in the mid 80’s. He’s the sole reason why I tune in every week.

      I’m kind of glad to hear that. Punk does deserve some time off. He’s been working super hard lately. Plus, this arm injury, and Miz dropping him on his head. Yeah, he definitely deserves the time.

      Why does the WWE feel like CM Punk needs time off? John Cena has been in your fucking face for the last 11 or 12 years in the WWE with no time off except for a couple injury angles. Why don’t they give HIM some time off? Perhaps a year or two? Please? Maybe if they would stop trying to come up with new storylines for Cena every week, they could maybe focus on the rest of the show and everybody else?
