CM Punk Reportedly Quit WWE

Posted: January 30, 2014 in Uncategorized

WWE Champion CM Punk celebrates his birthday today, and we’d like to wish Punk a Very Happy Birthday. Punk turns 34 today. He was born Phillip Jack On Jan. 28 and into the next day reports surfaced that Punk left the company and told Vince McMahon he was going home. These reports appear to have been confirmed byPWInsider.

To further drive home the legitimacy of his departure, on its website, the WWE has pulled Punk from advertising on almost all future WWE events. He was scheduled to wrestle in Toledo, Ohio Tuesday night – a show I attended and can confirm he was advertised as the main event for – but he did not appear on the show.

While these rumors could just be the WWE leaking information as part of some grandiose scheme to make it seem like Punk is leaving again, it would appear this is legit. If that is the case, here is the good and the bad of the situation.

The Good

Punk has never been shy about expressing his disapproval of part-time wrestlers coming in and stealing the spotlight every year at WrestleMania. PWInsider is suggesting Punk left because it was clear he once again had no shot at main eventing WrestleMania this year and decided not to stick around for a rumored match against Triple H.

Maybe by losing one of its top draws for the other nine months of the year, the WWE will stop giving marquee spots to guys like Brock Lesnar who have made it clear they only want to come in for the big money and leave while the rest of the roster works all year. The Rock is an all-time great, but it’s really aggravating as a fan to see him show up five times a year to get the main event at WrestleMania knowing he is leaving almost as soon as he returns.

It’s also nice to know that Punk cares enough about the product that he isn’t shy about speaking out for fans. During his dispute with the WWE in 2011, Punk went on air and said “you want to punish people for being wrestling fans,” to McMahon. As was the case at last week’s Royal Rumble, the WWE often times ignores the wants of fans in order to push its own agenda down our throats.

Go back and watch the Rumble, the four names that got the most spotlight on the card, John Cena, Batista, Randy Orton and Brock Lesnar have all been booed heavily by fans lately despite Cena and Batista being “good guys.” Meanwhile the two guys who got the loudest reactions, Punk and Daniel Bryan were buried in terrible angles that night.

It’s one thing to make fans wait a bit to see their favorites get over on the bad guys, but ignoring us for too long only results in fans tuning out.

The Bad

This is simple. No CM Punk in the WWE is bad for the fans more than anybody else. Over the course of his career in the company, Punk has developed a reputation as being a guy who can deliver a good match, promo and story anytime he is asked. Whether he is a face or a heel, Punk knows how to entertain an audience like very few can.

I can say I was legitimately disappointed when Punk didn’t appear in Toledo Tuesday and had I known he wasn’t going to be on the card, I wouldn’t have bought tickets. I would be willing to bet some people felt the same way.

While it’s admirable that Punk is standing up for himself, the fans are the ones taking this one on the chin. Like he’s said before Punk is just another spoke on the wheel and the WWE will just find another guy to take his spot. But sadly, whoever it is probably won’t be able to fill his shoes.

It’s also rough for Punk who is still in the prime of his career but left with no place in the United States to showcase his skills on a comparable stage. TNA may have a TV deal, but unlike WCW back in the day, TNA isn’t competition for WWE.

In three months, when all the part-time talent is gone, the WWE will have one less star on the roster to help keep the product entertaining. That means having to build another name up and as we know, sometimes even the biggest push of a talent doesn’t mean he’ll connect with the fans.

The Top Five WWE Superstars of 2013

5. Big E Langston

After serving as the muscle for AJ Lee and Dolph Ziggler, Big E Langston finally began to realize the potential for greatness in 2013 he had shown in NXT. After Paul Heyman helped him execute a nice babyface turn, Langston defeated Curtis Axel late in 2013 to win the prestigious WWE Intercontinental Championship. To take his character to the next level, the WWE must let Big E Langston start talking more, which he showed a great talent for doing in NXT.

4. John Cena

After struggling for much of 2012, John Cena won a big match against The Rock at WrestleMania 29. In 2013, Cena also showed he is still capable of great wrestling matches, as he had against Daniel Bryan at SummerSlam. Cena’s best promo of 2013 was rescuing an impending disaster as Daniel Bryan’s fans were in a frenzy on the last edition of Raw before TLC. Cena’s only real blemish of 2013 was failing to win the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.

3. Randy Orton

Randy Orton’s pro wrestling career had been in limbo for several years before 2013. However, The Authority chose him to be the face of the WWE at SummerSlam. Although most wrestling fans weren’t happy with Orton this year, it’s important to remember that he’s a heel and he’s doing his job well if the fans hate him. Although Randy Orton needed lots of help to win most of his main event pay-per-view matches in 2013, he defeated John Cena on his own at TLC.

2. Goldust

If anyone had predicted that Goldust would be one of the WWE’s top five Superstars of 2013, then he must be in contact with Nostradamus. Goldust returned to the WWE as part of Cody Rhodes’ firing storyline. Although it seems like Goldust has been around forever, he actually started wrestling at a very young age and he’s still only 44 years old. Goldust wrestled to critical acclaim in 2013 by toning down his bizarre character and working incredible matches.

1. Daniel Bryan

Daniel Bryan proved there is still room at the top of the WWE for an outstanding wrestler. Bryan broke the mold of previous WWE main event Superstars by letting his wrestling do most of his talking in 2013. Although The Authority thwarted most of Bryan’s visions of grandeur in 2013, he did win the WWE Championship on two occasions. Despite finishing 2013 out of the WWE title picture, Daniel Bryan is still the most popular Superstar in the promotion.

And if that isn’t enough to prove he had the best year of any WWE wrestler, keep in mind he also got engaged to Brie Bella in 2013.
