Some WWE Employees “Not Unhappy” About Punk Leaving, More on His Frustration, Vince

– Many people within WWE are said to be “not unhappy” that CM Punk is gone. There has been a lot of negativity towards Punk from various people that work behind-the-scenes in WWE.

We noted before that Vince McMahon is handling the Punk situation. Vince wants Punk to stay because he feels there aren’t many top Superstars on the roster right now.

Regarding Punk being unhappy about facing Triple H at WrestleMania XXX, Punk knew his contract expires in July and with people not expecting him to re-sign, he likely knew the direction that the match would go.

    That’s because Punk doesn’t have a problem with “part-timers” along as he’s the one headlining ppvs with them. He’d have no problem with Batista winning the rumble if he was the one main eventing WM with him. Punk has only ever been in business for himself.

    stock prices compared to punk refunds are not even in the same ball park though

    The stock is so high because of the Network, and WM30 VIP meetings and signature sessions are now losing money since people are refunding the CM Punk meets.
    Sure they are making money else where, but they are still having to refund people for Punks absences

    I don’t think he had a problem with Brock because he wasn’t given title matches right off the bat. He feuded with Triple H, Cena, Punk and Big Show, none of which were title matches.

    They aren’t losing money, they’re making money. WWE’s stock is a high as its ever been and WM30 will bring in a ton of cash so Vince doesn’t give a crap.

    Everyone here complains about how stale and stagnant the WWE product is. How they push the same talent over and over when the fans clearly want another direction. So when a top star decides he’s had enough, a lot of you jump down his throat and call him unprofessional. While Punk may not be the most liked person on the roster, he DOES care about wrestling! He wants the Daniel Bryans, the Dolph Zigglers and even the Zack Ryders to get a shot and be pushed. Is he worried about himself? Sure, which top superstar wouldn’t be? It takes guts to walk away from the money he’s getting. Instead of people dogging him, we should all be supporting his decision. We all want change, but if no one takes any action nothing ever will change.

    I’m sure I read “[Vince McMahon] feels there aren’t many top Superstars on the roster right now” at least a year ago, possibly more. They’ve had so long to build new stars and yet they always complain they haven’t got any…?

  • d_pooch

    I get the impression that Punk is forgetting the entertainment factor. Win or lose, it’s still entertainment, and all guys “do the job” on the way out. Talent always seems to rotate in and out of the top spots. I understand a WM main event is Punk’s last goal, but can’t he just collect his check and move on?

  • Mike Bates

    I like Punk but he does seem very high maintenance. I would love to see him at Mania but if they beg him to come back they are leaving themselves open for any topstar to act the same way

  • JAckh45

    I understand why people within WWE aint happy, they are losing lots of money. Everytime I see a live event being talked about, there is refunds being offered because Punk is no longer there. Not to mention the WM weekend deal with Punk.
    I’d be pissed too if I spent all that time promoting Punk only for him to quit.
    Still I understand why he did and I hope he returns soon.

    I find that hilarious but at the same time not surprising. Punk comes off as an obnoxious little p***k and is probably a nightmare to deal with in a working environment. If I were Vince McMahon I’d leave it alone. Punk is too high maintenence and isn’t worth the trouble given the abysmal numbers he drew in 2012. Besides in the last 6 months Daniel Bryan has filled his spot nicely.
