WWE Officials Upset Over CM Punk Leak, Major WrestleMania Creative Meetings Held, More

– The CM Punk situation is personally being handled by Vince McMahon himself, as opposed to Triple H or WWE’s Talent Relations department.

WWE officials are not happy at all about the story getting out and there being a big deal publicly. The hope was to keep it as an internal issue and deal with it within the company.

There were meeting with the WWE creative team all last week discussing WrestleMania XXX plans if Punk does not return, as well what to do with him if he does come back. The meetings were not as a result of Punk walking out specifically but also a by-product of fans rejecting segments and the reaction for Daniel Bryan at the Royal Rumble. A source noted that “anything is possible” at this point in regards to the WrestleMania XXX card and nothing should be considered official or locked in with the exception of John Cena vs. Bray Wyatt.

    If you actually took the time to read other wrestling websites, you would know Bryan took Punks spot. Bryan vs HHH was booked for Mania as of last Monday, Punk got mad and he quit. If he acts likes a baby, cries like a baby, then Punk is a baby and is not a man. Instead of standing his ground, he ran away to hide.

  • morrisonfanone

    She confirmed that he left. I’m waiting until it comes from him too.

    Exactly my thinking of this. WWE wouldnt take one of their main draws off the TV just so dirt sheet sites can get butt-hurt over it.
    They would lose to much money. Just look at all the refunds WWE has been offering of late. This is costing them thousands hence not a work.

  • JAckh45

    You always got to remember, this isnt JUST business for guys like Punk. It’s his livelihood. His blood sweat and tears have gone into this. As we have read, Punk seems to be well off financially so this isn’t about money anymore. I’m also not happy he left as I also tune in to watch him, however if he isnt happy in giving his 100% for pathetic matches that we have seen many times already (the proposed HHH v Punk at WM) then I understand his walkout. Why tarnish his career and end his contract on below par matches?
    HBK went out the right way, giving an amazing match at WM with Taker, can you blame Punk for wanting the same? Look at Flair, he was given a great match via WWE to retire with, however he wrecked everything by going to TNA and preforming.
    So I can very well understand Punks frustration when he hears his last WM with be against HHH

    while i can see where you’re coming from, you still need to see it from Punks perspective too. The fans haven’t been this excited for a while now, and they are literally chanting for these guys night in and night out. Are they chanting for Cena or Orton the “faces of the WWE”? no, are they chanting for Batista? no, they’re chanting for these guys night in and night out but do the wwe listen? no. THATS why punk seems p*ssed because he’s been taking a backseat to a bunch of part timers (Rock and Batista).

  • The Killswitch

    She confirmed that it was a work, or that he was legit quitting? Either way, I don’t think it’s a “Benoit treatment,” I think they’re trying to figure out what the future holds before speaking prematurely on the matter. Obviously his contract is not up, so both parties could possibly reach a mutual agreement before then if this is legitimate. If this is a work, then it’s a very good one. I believe that he is in fact upset at recent booking and backstage politics, as hinted by recent interviews. I’ll wait until we hear from the man himself; he’s been extremely quiet lately, and I’m sure he needs time to himself to recover physically and mentally.

  • Kristopher Robinson

    Up and quitting is not “speaking his mind.” Punk needs to realize that this business doesn’t revolve around Punk plain and simple. Ryder never did this, Christian never did it, Bryan never did it, Ziggler never did it and so on. Punk needs to just finish his contract or sit down and talk to someone, Austin did this same thing as well and it was BS when he did it as well. As a man you have a obligation to the fans, who cares if put is main eventing Shotgun Saturday Night, he needs to just finish his contract and give the fans what they want. Because whether him or Bryan, Christian or Ziggler or main eventing or opening match, we pay and tune into watch them and Punk needs to realize that he’s contributing by just being there. And I didn’t see any ratings fly threw the roof when he was champion for a year. The Miz got higher ratings when he was champion.

  • morrisonfanone

    I plan to as soon as I can find it somewhere cheap enough. It’s been one of the first documentaries I’ve been looking forward to seeing since Decade of Decadence.

  • PunkRock

    You should definitely watch his documentary, one of the best I’ve seen from them in a long time. It’s upfront, honest, and overall refreshing to see someone who won’t sugar coat how they feel about a career they love

  • morrisonfanone

    It seems like they’re trying to give him the Benoit treatment. I think it’s weird that AJ would confirm it and then turn around and delete it. It’s nothing without him.

  • Daniel Stockwell

    I’m the opposite – its nice to see Cena in a feud/match that’s fresh. They’re aren’t many people you could pair him with that he hasn’t wrestled previously – Husky Harris doesn’t count. Plus, its good to see him taking a smaller role at the event – his been involved in either the Main Event or the secondary Main Event since 2005. I would’ve loved to see him face Taker but Bray is a good consolation.

  • Mr.7

    I agree with Punk. The fans want something else but WWE keeps forcing Batista on us. Roman Reigns was more entertaining during Royal Rumble and many people chose him over Batista that day

  • The Killswitch

    The reason I don’t think it’s a work is because there’s no official statements or mention of it on or shows. Unless it’s supposed to be directed at the smarks reading dirt sheets, and the joke’s on us.

  • Rob ‘Richard Hammond’ Picken

    So much b*tching on here: “Crybaby” this “Whiney b*tch” that….

    non of us know the full details of what happened as we weren’t there, all we can do is speculate.

    However… All ill say is on these pieces of info (I won’t say facts until its proven), IF punk did walk out because he was p*ssed off i say all credit to him. The fans have been vocal for a LONG time now, and have they (the WWE creative or whoever it is) listened?? No! Thats why were seeing Batista in the main event, who just happens to be BFF’s with Triple H instead of guys like Ziggler, Bryan & Punk

    All punk was doing was sticking up for himself and speaking his mind (remember Ziggler has also done the same and look what happened to him), WWE officials just can’t accept when they’re wrong so they use a power play for leverage because they’re all spineless.

  • morrisonfanone

    Yep. And who do they think wants to see Batista/Orton? This WM card sounds very weak so far. Hope it gets better.

  • morrisonfanone

    I’ve never seen the documentary. I’ve always wanted to. I also saw him live once, and he was playing a heel a little too well.

  • ddfindl

    Thats th McMahons for ya…

  • ddfindl

    Why are they so set on Cena vs. Wyatt?? That match only makes since Bray attacked him, and that whole thing was random and forced.

  • Kristopher Robinson

    Watching his documentary and meeting the guy in person, he definitely seems like he would do something like this.

  • Peyton Manning Swag

    If this is legit, Punk needs to man up and stop acting like a 6 year old who didn’t get the videogame he wanted. #18

  • Hasan

    Wow! The only thing set in stone for mania happens to be the one I would wanna see the least on the card.

  • morrisonfanone

    The more that comes out about this, the more I think it’s a work. I can’t see Punk throwing a little hissy fit and leaving permanently.
