Punk was at the building in Pittsburgh for Raw on Monday night and had a conversation with Vince McMahon, telling him that he was going home which is why he was not included on the television show.
It is still not certain why exactly CM Punk left the company, especially just a few months before WrestleMania XXX where he was expected to square off in a major match against Triple H.
CM Punk has been pulled from all advertising on upcoming events on WWE.com.
There had already been speculation regarding CM Punk’s status with the WWE since his current contract expires in July. Punk nearly did not re-sign three years ago but agrees to the new deal. Many times, he has talked about being burned out and in a recent interview with Ariel Helwani of MMAFighting.com, he admitted that he has yet to have any discussions about a new deal and that he isn’t sure whether he wants to remain with the company.
With Punk leaving the company for the time being, that leaves a hole in the WrestleMania XXX lineup. Jason Powell of ProWrestling.net is reporting that the WWE has already made a change with Daniel Bryan now slated to square off against Triple H at the April 6th event.
