- The following photo was sent to us by a Redditor and features CM Punk with who appears to be his good friend Chez. Social media has been rampant with talk that Punk is holding the Bud Light pictured but it appears his friend is holding the beer and Punk is taking the photo:

- WWE’s website has a new poll up asking fans which star will be the wildest cast member on Legends House – Gene Okerlund, Jim Duggan, Hillbilly Jim, Howard Finkel, Jimmy Hart, Roddy Piper, Pat Patterson or Tony Atlas. With over 12,000 votes cast, Piper is currently leading with 58%. Duggan is next with 15%.

- We noted before that The Shield kicked off last night’s WWE live event in San Diego telling fans that CM Punk wasn’t there and refunds would be offered. Reader Justin Sell, who was in attendance, noted that each member of the group took turns running down Punk and seemed to really be going after him.

  • The Killswitch

    Yeah, and watch…he’ll resign a deal after extensive negotiations and people will say “I I told you so!”

  • d_pooch

    If anything, I think he would come back and help Bryan win, or attack Bryan after he wins so he can face him for the gold.

  • RR

    Am thinking it could be a work and Bryan is about to win the wwe championship and punk comes out and stops him from winning

    I’m with you Killswitch, doubtful its a work. Even now I doubt Vince has gotten Punk back.
    I just don’t understand how some call it a work when it seems the only people they are trying to work over are the small number of us on dirt sheets and rumor sites.
    Why troll them? Most of us wont even go to a Live show or even buy a ppv. What does the WWE have to gain from working us over?
    If it was official and even commented on live TV then yeah, I would agree its a work, but it hasn’t been and until its commented on I doubt a deal have been struck with Vince and Punk.

    secretly really how do you secretly take some one off a website? do you watch it ever min then refresh and poof hes gone? his profile is still up and if they wanna sell the he walked out angle the of course they are gonna take him off of live events. as far as the power ranking goes kinda hard to have someone on there that hasnt performed in awhile but if you watched it they kept him on there til he ranked too low.

  • The Killswitch

    Do you have a link to that, by chance?

    Edit: Never mind, I dug it up. I think he very well might have talked to him, and knows more than we do. But I don’t think there’s much more to it than that.

  • The Killswitch

    Doesn’t it seem odd that he’s been secretly removed from the WWE website, save his superstar profile? He’s been removed from appearances, advertisements, etc. It just seems…off. Like it’s not the way a work would be done. I’ve said it before, if it’s a ploy it’s the best one I’ve seen. But the catch is, the smarks would feel duped the most.

  • D2K

    I think it’s been a carefully contrived troll-job from day one. About the Wrestlemania pay-day, Austin said pretty much what you did when he was on Arsenio Hall. Just by the way he was describing it you could tell Austin knew something but was trying to “play the role.”

  • D2K

    Hope you got a bus pass.

  • Shawn Bronald

    I don’t think it started out as a work. I think Punk honest got fed up with everything and walked away. Now that guys are starting to talk about it more and promos are being made about it tells me that Vince got Punk to come back and they’ll work it into something. Thus, I think it is *now* a work. Guess we’ll see, though. Punk has money saved up, but no one in their right mind would turn down a Wrestlemania payday.

  • The Killswitch

    I’m willing to bet my car that it’s not at this point.

  • D2K

    It’s a work.

  • Yo

    Wow cm punk actually looks happy guess he did need to get away from wwe

  • The Killswitch

    Forget the beer, Punk is in a suit guys.
