Jim Ross Blogs About CM Punk Leaving WWE

Posted by Brad Davis January 30, 2014 19 Comments

WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has updated his blog, which you can read in its entirety at JRsBarBQ.com. Here are some highlights of what he said about the CM Punk situation:

Is Punk’s WWE Departure Surprising? “Was it really unexpected? Likely not. Punk has not been a happy camper within WWE for quite some time. That point has been made abundantly clear on many occasions. He’s tired, he’s beat up, and he’s not enjoying himself at work … Punk is mentally and physically burned out and he’s not having enough professional fulfillment to work through his issues. He needs a break.”

Some Fans Thinking It Is Just A Storyline: “No, I don’t think this is an elaborate, TV storyline but instead it’s all about a highly motivated, talented wrestler who, at times, feeds off the chip on his shoulder, which is not a bad thing, who has hit the wall and isn’t enjoying what once was his primary professional focus….dare say his life. ”

Will Punk Ever Return? “I do not think that Punk has wrestled his last match in WWE. I do feel that it’s best for all involved for Punk to take much needed time off even if it means that he misses a WrestleMania.”

“CM Punk has been good for WWE. WWE has been good for CM Punk. I’m hopeful that they will resolve their issues and be good together once again in the future. Hopefully, the lines of communications, to whatever degree that can be maintained will remain open. If so, then this matter has a much better chance of being rectified.”

      • Lee Macko

        Even if Kenta signs, you know he will more than likely be burried. When was the last time there was ever a big star in the WWE that was Japanese?

          P.P. Johnny says probably way back in the days of Mr. Fuji & Professor Tanaka.

      (Here is a very interesting article i found on cm punk “leaving” wwe)


      Sources close to World Wrestling Entertainmentexclusively shared with WWE Examiner on Thursday morning details of CM Punk’s purported fallout with WWE.

      While it’s true that CM Punk is angry with the company for advancing part-time talent like Batista and The Rock to main event matches at WrestleMania while full time wrestlers like Daniel Bryan get bumped to the midcard on major WWE pay-per-views, stories of CM Punk walking out on WWE are greatly exaggerated.

      CM Punk (real name Phil Brooks) is under contract with WWE through mid-summer and there is no truth to reports that Punk’s relationship with WWE has irreparably deteriorated. Brooks, without question, is displeased with the creative direction WWE is taking. But he is using it to his advantage. And so is the WWE.

      “It looks like a work,” the source admits, adding that many within WWE are even being kept in the dark to intentionally drive internal source leaks about CM Punk walking from WWE.

      This, we’re told, is exactly what WWE wants. And it’s also what Phil Brooks needs.

      It’s no secret that Brooks is far from being 100% physically. Bruised, battered and exhausted from a rigorous schedule and lengthy championship run in recent years, Brooks’ mind and body need rest. And this current story angle will allow Punk to remain on the minds of WWE fans while he regroups and recovers in the coming weeks.

      “We probably won’t see him in a match until after WrestleMania,” the source says, adding that Punk’s supposed “reason for leaving” will be well known by the time he returns, setting up a future title match with Batista – a man the WWE will want to position as the source of CM Punk’s frustration. After all, when fans are angry and drive heat toward performers, it tends to push ratings – and revenue – higher.

      “CM Punk is probably the smartest guy and shrewdest marketing mind the WWE has ever employed,” the source continues, adding that it’s Brooks and not Triple H who should be running the show backstage.

      “Will we see him back?” the source continues, “Absolutely. But don’t try to figure out when. It may be a while. But he will main event WrestleMania again.”

      WWE is expected to “future endeavor” CM Punk online and on television within the week.

        he took a break like a month or 2 ago

      • bronty

        i can understand he’s frustrated that Batista won the Rumble and will be given a title match in WM even though he really didn’t deserve it while Punk is on a mediocre storyline.

        • D

          That’s not Punk’s call to make though. And just walking out like an angry little child isn’t the professional way to handle it.

    • Harold Townsend

      why has nobody thought that the reason hes having trouble focusing on wrestling wen he has to deal with all personal problems with his mom i can talk from experience bout how family can mess with ur mind to thew point ur job dont mattrr

      • Mang KaKnorr

        maybe but WWE is still kinda unfair to some wrestlers who deserves more or a title just like Bryan.
