CM Punk was originally scheduled to return at next week's Raw in Columbus, Oh, however those plans seem to have changed as WWE has pulled the listings for Punk from all upcoming shows.
Punk's new return date is now listed as the May 27th episode of WWE Raw from the Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. With Punk being removed from all upcoming shows, the possibility of him working Extreme Rules is very unlikely.
Since Punk has been removed from events, he has been Tweeting photos from various baseball parks across the country during his time off.
Isn't he supposed to have a time off, for like 2 or 3 months ?
Just one month for a man that have been working his ass for almost a full year?
WWE is making me sick
You know I work too hard for this kinda play,
I wrote a letter, for the ghetto of the CIA,
I don't care a jack, or about what cha' do.
Same old dirtsheets, could be 1 month, could be 2, could be 6. Somebody will get it right. I hope they keep him off for a while, they'll reap the rewards, let people miss him for some time, then anticipation can grow for his long awaited return. You could even wait till Royal Rumble, imagine the pop. In the mean time WWE might be forced in to making someone else into a main eventer.
May 27th would be 6 weeks off, which is more than most of us get off in a year, if thats what his injuries need then i wouldve thought that would be good for him to go. Plus he may just do a run in on may 27th and not actually return full time for another week or two after that
D Lo Brown -
On any given night in 2000 there were 10, 12 million people watching Nitro and Raw. In 2005 there's been 2 1/2 million. So where did 9 1/2 million people go? They didn't just die. They turned the channel.
Punks been working hard for a while yes, but look how hard Cena has worked and I never see that guy have time off. Them two need time off the most, but because the writers keep playing this silly game of 'lets bury our talent' they fucking cant. They have no star-power without the 6/7 big names they have now.
I'd take this dirt sheet crap with a whole packet worth of salt, but if it was true, it would mean that Punk was returning Calgary, and thus as a face. He'd get a giant ovation there, if they picked that date, it'd be because they could guarantee a loud reaction.
I mark for (right now):
Bad News Barrett
Infinite marking and endless love for:
Macho Man Randy Savage

We can't believe that someone with your skin color has the level of education that you have, so your gimmick is just gonna be that we put you on tv and brag that you went to school. Cause that's basically the gimmick that they gave him, how much more racist could his gimmick have been? Am I missing something here? What was the reason that the people were supposed to get behind him, other than the company just saying "phht, well, he's...in school".
