– Regarding the report that WWE had granted CM Punk his release on Friday, the rumors started backstage when Punk’s girlfriend AJ Lee was given the weekend off. People were just speculating backstage that AJ left and that led to the Punk rumors starting up. AJ is still with the company and Punk has not been granted his release.

    As I stated before, the rumor mill was put to the test and I surmised that it would not hold up. It was a very suspicious to say the least, and with little to no credibility. I don’t see how AJ getting time off out of nowhere directly implies that she’s leaving like Punk. That’s jumping to wild conclusions.

    well, duh, if the Divas champion has left, then WWE would had posted something announcing her departure and announcing that the divas belt would be vacated as the champ quit. but she’s still with the WWE and she’s probably got the weekend off. in fact a while back before her self imposed (or lawyer ordered) twitter hiatus, she tweeted that she was gonna have a dentist appointment on Valentine’s Day, and before that during the holidays, AJ tweeted that she lost a tooth, which occurred at the house shows during the weekend before New Years day. plus WWE has nothing for the Divas champion right now since their plans of a AJ Lee/Naomi are on paused due to Aksana’s knee botch that caused Naomi to suffer from a eye injury that will keep her out of action for 4 to 6 weeks.
