There were a few whispers (which I didn’t report on) over the past few days that people were talking backstage at WWE house shows about CM Punk being officially gone from the WWE – that he’d been given the okay to walk away from his contract early.
The WWE, just moments ago, reached out to f4wonline.com…
“WWE has officially stated that C.M. Punk has not been released.”
This is the first time the WWE has mentioned, albeit briefly, the Punk crisis. Despite this claim though, and the fact that Punk is still listed on the Superstar Roster page, there are still plenty of rumors out there stating that Punk’s been telling people that he’s done (via PWInsider.com)
