- We noted before that WWE was selling new CM Punk merchandise at WrestleMania Week in New Orleans. Punk is still getting royalties on his merchandise, which are pretty substantial. Even as of a few weeks ago, he was second only to Cena in merchandise sold. Officially, Punk is still not suspended, nor fired, nor released, but simply on a leave.

UFC star Chael Sonnen, who is friends with Punk, recently appeared on Wrestling Observer Radio and said he had talked with Punk at one point. Sonnen said at first he thought what Punk had told him, which one would presume to be that he had left the company, was a work, but said that as time has gone on, he’s thinking that it’s the truth.
