More Backstage News on CM Punk Leaving WWE and His RAW Meeting with Vince McMahon

– While CM Punk is still being advertised for Elimination Chamber and may appear on some other advertisements for upcoming live events, word is that he will eventually be pulled from those as well. In the last week, two different people with knowledge of Punk’s situation have noted that he was “as good as gone” from WWE when his deal expired in July and one person said they didn’t expect him to even last until July.

Regarding Punk talking to Vince McMahon at RAW before he went home, word now is that Punk didn’t see Vince until 7:30pm. Earlier reports said that Vince had the creative team start re-writing RAW just after 6pm when he found out Punk was leaving. The reason the Kofi Kingston vs. Alberto Del Rio match on RAW went so long is because it came during the period that was laid out for Punk’s segment and the match had to go a second segment to cover the time.

There has been a working assumption within WWE creative for several weeks that Punk was leaving in July and would not sign a new deal. Sheamus will be replacing Punk at all SmackDown tapings where Punk was largely advertised as the main star.

    I feel it too, the way Triple H said on RAW “awww did someone not get what they want?” As that man has never been the most koye person about storylines PLUS this is not the first time Punk has starting acting flacky and leaving before his contract ends.

    Punk acted exactly like that—a Punk! At least man up and finish you current obligations. What you all fail to realize is that he not only walked out on the WWE he also walked out on you the fans. Including those who had paid to see him that night.

    After he was mysteriously absent from RAW, it doesn’t feel like a work to me.
