Former WWE creative writer David Lagana has a piece up on CM Punk, and the frustrations he's had during his WWE run. He talks about Punk's run in Vince McMahon's ECW, and how Shawn Michaels took up for Punk early on, writing:
"Vince McMahon was scheduled to appear on ECW for the first time in the start of a new storyline. He was going to rid ECW of it's 'Original' stars and make the way for a "New Breed." The meeting quickly turned into another CM Punk bash fest. My role was to run the meeting but dare not speak out of turn on the veteran agents. This was how the previous months meetings had gone but this day was different. It was a new voice in the room that changed everything. 'Um, if you don't like something the kid is doing, why don't you work with him to fix it...instead of killing him.' That voice belonged to Shawn Michaels."

Lagana went on to note that after the meeting, Michaels became an ally.

"In January of 2007, Shawn Michaels was my consultant on ECW," he wrote. "I was able to get in his input on the shows, thoughts on talents and in this situation the voice needed in that agent meeting. Like getting to work with Paul Heyman, Vince McMahon, Dusty Rhodees, working with Shawn was a dream come true. In that meeting in Houston, Shawn brought up that guys like him and Undertaker will not be around forever and, while everyone liked Holly, it was guys like Punk who were the future. The mood in the room changed, the den of negativity that existed was silenced for the time being. Punk wasn't pushed strong that week or even the next week but the ship had turned. Punk was positioned better from that point forward.

"Shawn Michaels was pulled back into active duty when Triple H was hurt and programmed to face John Cena at Wrestlemania 23. Dusty Rhodes ended up joining me to help book ECW. And CM Punk made Wrestlemania 23 as the only ECW guy in the Money In the Bank Ladder Match."

Lagana is a kon-artist. He is a liar.

He was betting on WWE matches when he was on the Writing team. That was why he was fired.

I believe I read that somewhere as well. Cus I'm a big Michaels fan, I thought it was cool of him to step up for the young guys in the company.

Really? Damn. How is he not in jail?
You know sometimes it's easier and smoother for a company to just let employee go rather than to get into a whole courtcase with the bad publicity and all that.

The problem is, most likely it isn't true. Shawn Michaels and CM Punk have nothing in common. One is the greatest wrestler the other one is talker with a shitty set of signature moves.

Shawn did help some young talent . Training the likes of Dolph and Daniel. Truly there needs to be more like him in the company

That is a totally illogical conclusion.

That's irrelevant.
You are irrelevant.

You Think Shawn Michaels taught CM Punk anything? Punk is one of the worst wrestlers ever in the WWE. Michaels is the best ever. They share nothing. Michaels wouldn't touch CM Punk with gloves, sanitizers and multiple condoms on his hands....he wants nothing to do with that hack.

HBK is the farthest thing from being a talker with shitty set of signature moves.
