Gail Kim has insinuated she wants Vince McMahon removed completely from WWE after his $12 million hush money payments have come to light.
Why is this behavior accepted?? I don’t understand … someone explain this to me https://t.co/JEi3P5JNeH

Former WWE Superstar CM Punk has not been seen on WWE television since the 2014 edition of the Royal Rumble pay-per-view. He walked out of the company the next day and has not looked back since then. Following his WWE exit, many fans have been wanting to see Punk make his return to the company every year. He has yet to make his return to the squared circle and at this point, it seems very unlikely. A WWE Superstar was also previously punished for ripping off CM Punk.
CM Punk has been in talks with AEW for quite a while as indicated by reports and it all came true as The Second City Saint made his return to pro wrestling on AEW Rampage: The First Dance back in August.
Me and CM Punk almost went to blows when I was a producer on a live event. We had to get called into Vince’s office at TV and make nice and shake hands. I never thought Punk was what Punk was. But again, I know he is what he is. I know he’s hugely successful in this industry and over. I give him all the credit in the world. I just didn’t get it. I see it now. I still don’t get it, but I see it, so I know it’s true. But me and him didn’t see eye to eye early on. He was the champion at the time. It was about how he was carrying himself as the champion. I had a discussion with him that he obviously didn’t like being talked to that way. So the next time I saw him, it was not yelling in my face, but it was, I was yelling in his face. He was a lot more professional and calm than I was at the time.
