Word has come out that CM Punk has left WWE, according to sources for the Wrestling Observer and PWInsider.
After being re-written out of the script for Raw, Punk reportedly told Vince McMahon he was going home and that he wasn't coming back. The company responded by pulling him from all of his scheduled WWE dates going forward.
Punk was scheduled to face Triple H at WrestleMania 30, but as we saw on Raw, early signs may have been shown that Triple H will be facing Daniel Bryan at Mania instead. No word if the match change is what caused Punk to leave, or if the match was changed because Punk left. ProWrestling.net reports that Bryan VS HHH is, indeed, the current plan for Mania.
In the past, Punk had been very vocal about "part-time" wrestlers returning to WWE and getting pushed ahead of guys who are there on a nightly basis, and that may be a reason for him being upset. PWInsider says that Punk's final goal for his time with WWE was to main event WrestleMania, and with his current contract expiring in July, and with it becoming more and more apparent that he would not be main eventing Mania this year, his failure to achieve that goal may be a driving force for his departure.
All signs indicate that this is not a work, but we'll pass on any more information as it comes in.

"GREATEST MAN THAT'S EVER LIVED" Austin Aries vs "BEST IN THE WORLD" CM Punk would be amazing.
I guess if Punk will go to TNA (he wont) the firts big match we would see is Hardy vs. Punk.
