CM Punk left the WWE the day after this year’s Royal Rumble and has not returned to the company. Punk hasn’t spoken out about the situation and no one from the WWE has said anything regarding the situation. It seems like everyday you hear something new about Punk and what he is up too. People have made the assumption that someday he will return to the squared circle. We have seen recently that he is retired from the WWE.
In an article a few weeks ago, a piece came out from his ex-girlfriend Natalie Slater stating that Punk retired from the WWE. We seem to have an answer from Punk on the situation. In a short interview that came out today in the RedEye Chicago to promote Punk doing some charity work to promote the 100th anniversary of Wrigley Field, home of the Chicago Cubs, the interviewer stated that Punk was retired from the WWE.

Interviewer: “How does it feel to be retired at 35? Are you going to be doing more charity work now?”
Punk: “It feels good. It’s a lot easier when you hook up with organizations like the Cubs and being friends with some of the team members. It isn’t hard to support their charities. Plus I get to do fun stuff like bowl and paint chairs and play whiffle ball with Bill Murray.
It was super fun and for a great cause. You’ve got athletes and actresses and musicians and all kinds of people painting chairs. I’m super happy to be a part of it.
Could it be posturing by Punk with his contract coming up or is he happy in retirement with no return in sight?
