CM Punk : Was he fired?

I'm just watching the Ariel Helwani interview, and it's got me thinking ...

DZ got dicked on hard for the tiniest sliver of "dissention" from the WWE Way, and others have been punished for minor shit.

Punks interview was pretty 'tell-all' and it made me wonder, did WWE just agree to fire his ass for being a gobshite?

I don't know if this was a common belief apparent in the CM Punk Smile Mega Thread, so I'm asking, what say you? Could they have just given him his marching orders, and allowed him to say he 'quit' as a show of deference?

Re: CM Punk : Was he fired?

Pretty sure he was not fired. I can't remember every detail, but, I thought I had read somewhere that he walked outa half hour before Raw started. I could be wrong (or that article could be wrong), but, yeah. There was also a rumor about a week or two ago that he was given his walking papers on a Friday but that was never confirmed. Apparently, too, Vince wants him back.

My heart broke when I checked my WWE app on my phone and the Raw picture of Punk was replaced with Cena.

Re: CM Punk : Was he fired?

At this point its still speculation but it seems like he would've gotten more of a warning for something like that. But who knows.

Re: CM Punk : Was he fired?

CM Punk ain't fucking DZ.....

If he got fired, which wouldn't happen, because the fan backlash would be high if that got out, and he's a money maker for them, we'd already know it. He walked out of the company a half hour before Raw started and the reason there's been no mention of him is because Vince wants to bring him back, so they're not going to bury him. He's been burnt out for a long time, he was already going to take a break 3 years ago but because they were gonna give him everything he wanted, he stayed. This has been brewing for a long time and it finally boiled over.

Episode 99 - Superhero Showdown Returns!

The much requested Superhero Showdown episode makes a return where we pit your favourite comic/movie/tv characters against each other to determine who's slighty better! Also we get into news of the new Civil War line-up, Star Wars The Force Awakens, Assassins Creed and undoubtably something else to do with whatever this podcast is about. Thanks for listening!

Re: CM Punk : Was he fired?

Tyrion, I'm saying if he got the sack, they'd allow him to say he left on his own terms negating the back lash

Re: CM Punk : Was he fired?

Nah after the sabatical thing from Vince I am pretty sure either Punk is just taking a break because he is too beat up or he failed a wellness test. I would have thought the wellness test theory was crazy but if he comes back next week then I will seriously be wondering if thats why he was gone. I don't think he was doing anything insane, maybe some type of drugs to try to heal faster, who knows

At least you're frequently checking the WWE APP, WWE universe member number 9,020,778.

Re: CM Punk : Was he fired?

I don't get it. Last I checked, he was putting over Batista in that Ariel Helwani interview. Why would he be fired for that?

But yeah, he is not Ziggler. He is ten times more valuable now, since they positioned him as such since after the pipebomb promo. And despite what people might think, WWE isn't petty enough to fire one of their talents over an interview. Besides, how many people watch these youtube interviews anyway? Large percentage are Internet fans who are going to shit on WWE regardless of what punk says or does not say. I'm pretty sure WWE know this.

lol . Punk makes WWE a lot of money no matter what some deluded people like to say about his ability to ''draw''. Do you think Vince called him into his office a half hour before Raw whilst they were writing it and fired him on the spot ? For what? He went home and told Vince he is taking time off. There is nothing more to it.
