CM Punk

QUITTING WWE

You're Screwing Me Out of WrestleMania Glory

1/29/2014 9:06 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0129-cm-punk-tmzWWE superstar CM Punk is QUITTING the organization, TMZ Sports has learned ... and sources tell us it's all because he's PISSED over the way the company wants to use him at "WrestleMania."

Sources close to the situation tell TMZ Sports ... Punk was livid when he learned officials scripted Batista to win the Royal Rumble ... because he feels Batista isn't in great wrestling shape and shouldn't be featured in the title match at the upcoming WrestleMania (the biggest event of the year).

We're told Punk feels he earned the right to be in the main event at WrestleMania -- because he's been wrestling tirelessly over the past year from house shows to overseas events. Punk was angry when he found out he'd be wrestling Triple H at WrestleMania instead of squaring off in the title match. 

Sources say ... Punk -- whose contract is up in July -- made the decision to leave WWE after "Monday Night Raw" -- and we're told that right now, he's very serious about his decision and has no plans to return.

Cm punk is a skinny homosexual and he looks like an AIDS patient who is afraid of the weight room. Can you imagine what Hulk Hogan, Macho, or Ultimate Warrior would do to a scrawny punk like him? LOL "sports entertainers" are such *****s. The Iron Sheik could break this kid's back right now.

Good, Maybe Punk can go to that other wrestling company that nobody watches. Tired of Punk since day one. He never had the talent to be at the top of the card to begin with. He should feel blessed he lasted this long and if I never hear his name again it will be too soon. And as far as Daniel Bryan? F*CK that b!tch!!!

I can not blame Punk for leaving he should have done this along time ago.
The WWE has been going down hill for awhile now.
I think that maybe Daniel Bryant should follow Punk's lead and just say to hell with the Wwe and go to TNA because both of them would so rule there.

Who's CM Punk to talk about someone being in shape? He looks like he never heard of lifting weights.

That is amazing because cm punk is bad for wrestling most people don't like him. His only fans are losers. He is a jerk in real life he even hit an innocent fan. And he is laziest wrestle during royal rumble he was just laying down while Ambrose who was in their just as long was fighting the whole time. Punk also is the one who is out of shape. And oh yeah he is a garbage entertainer and wrestler. The only good thing he ever said was the ice cream bars which was written for him.

wwe needs to wake the **** up! nobody wants to see these wrestlers who take years off and come back and automatically be right in the title picture.i mean u couldn't of just started a del rio batista rivalry? all these guys busting there ass and not getting the spot light is annoying.wwe has talent with the right training can be big,but they will never know bc they get held back. wwe if u knew what's best for business then u would stop this kinda crap and give the spot light to the ones who are there day in and day out working there asses off.cm punk has every right to be mad and i don't blame him for quitting. i have been a loyal wwf/wwe fan for 23 yrs and i find myself questioning if i wanna watch this anymore.


p.s can i have my money back for the royal rumble? bc that ppv was trash outside of daniel bryans match.

CM Punk speaks truth how can someone just come back after 4 years and just be handed a title match thats just like if Evan Bourne came back who would agree to hand him a title or would he have to work up the ladder like everyone else and Batista needs to work up that ladder
