Report: CM Punk Left WWE Over Batista, WrestleMania

cmpunktmzTMZ Sports is reporting that CM Punk walked out of WWE on Monday night before Raw and went home after being upset about his role for WrestleMania XXX and Batista being put in a main-event position.

According to the report, Punk was upset when he learned that Batista was going to win the Royal Rumble which would earn him a championship match at WrestleMania XXX.   It goes on to say that “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).”

Punk was said to be very upset when he learned that he would be facing Triple H at WrestleMania and would not be in the title match, a match he felt he earned from his work over the past year.

His being upset goes along with a ProWrestling.net story that CM Punk voiced his displeasure with about Batista being in the championship match at WrestleMania XXX at the Wizard World convention in Portland Oregon last Friday, two days before the Royal Rumble.

Punk was said to be very frustrated with his current role and the current WWE direction, not only regarding himself but that the company was not doing more with Daniel Bryan as well.
