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.

He will come back at wrestlemania like hogan did after bret hart got defeated by Yokozuna. He will defeat batista after Batista defeats Daniel bryan for the wwe world heavyweight championship.

Tmz gets thier wrestling news so off. He's been upset for months. Wrestlemania is a factor but a small one. It really involves the lack of them caring of the fans opinion.

CM Punk is the best there is on WWE. He is in my opinion the best performer. Good at mic skill, great finishing move, he's such a lovable jerk in wwe and the fact that he is my best superstar in wwe makes me sad to know that he quit the wwe. Wrestling won't be the same without him. Please come back Punk. You're truly the Best in the World.

If he is quitting because of wrestlers like Batista, Lesnar and even The New Age Outlaws coming in and just pushing aside the ones that work day in and day out, GOOD FOR HIM! I love CM Punk. He works everyday and is always ready to fight. He had even taken a few harsh beatings for the sake of some lie man's

Sorry, last comment posted as I was trying to correct auto correct. Damn mobile phones! If he is quitting because of wrestlers like Batista, Lesnar and even The New Age Outlaws coming in and just pushing aside the ones that work day in and day out, GOOD FOR HIM! I love CM Punk. He works everyday and is always ready to fight. He has even taken a few harsh beatings for the sake of some low man's push. Maybe him leaving will wake up the WWE and reward those that work hard, heel or babyface!
