The Latest On CM Punk’s WWE Status
Monday’s WWE RAW from Chicago came and went with no sign of CM Punk. Despite a report from Dave Meltzer and online speculation from several people in the industry, there were no plans at any point for Punk to be at the show.
Since leaving WWE, Punk has had almost no contact with WWE officials. While it’s possible he could return at some point, the general feeling is that he’s done with pro wresting.
Paul Heyman’s promo on RAW was done to write Punk off television without burying him, in the event that he does eventually come around. Heyman blamed the WWE Universe for Punk leaving as a way to get the anger heat of Punk leaving onto him and Brock Lesnar heading into WrestleMania.
Moving forward, CM Punk is being removed from all WWE marketing and publicity material, as well as video packages that air on television and at live events.
