As most of you guys and gals know for the last year, almost we as fans have wondered what happened that fateful night in Cleveland, OH back in January of this year. For those who may not be aware of the specifics, I am talking about the night that CM Punk finally had enough and went home for what we thought was a vacation. But now almost a full year later details have finally came out after a certain podcast came out in the middle of last week where Punk told us what happened. A couple of bullet points from that podcast:
Points about CM Punk:
· Top of F
- Punk didn’t quit on WWE and didn’t hold them up for money or leaving during a storyline. Punk left because he was very injured and mentally not there. Also he wasn’t enjoying it anymore.
- Punk’s opinion of certain members in both high management and on the active roster are for lack of better word opinions that many people agree with. (I will not name names you know who I am talking about if not watch the podcast.)
- The lack of sense that the creative team had for not knowing what they are doing with Punk of a monthly basis, but making Punk lose to so many part-timers. Also proving that the WWE doesn’t have long term plans the creative like they used to.
- After the events of last week, both Punk and the host of the podcast was... Scotty Goldman (Colt Cabana) are not in the good graces of the WWE at the moment. Now people think that Vince may still chose to try and bring Punk back, but Punk none the less is on the “black list” or the “you’ll never work here again list” and Mr. Cabana sadly got s*** listed by WWE. Which means neither of them will work for WWE now or in the future. That is a shame because even though Punk said he never wanted to work in wrestling again and expressed his true feelings about the company and what goes on, now he is banned. Also how that is “Best for Buisness” that WWE has now basically “banned” Cabana from working in the company. I know they bashed the company, but Cabana would be a great addition to the announce team for the WWE but now that ship has sailed.
Some Bullets Points now of things not just about Punk, but also about WWE:
- Though a wrestler’s union could help the wrestlers from being taken for granted like they are now. A union in wrestling something other wrestlers namely Shane Douglas has been saying was needed for a long time. However, I feel good that it will never come because wrestlers are in it for themselves first and the other reason is, it will in my opinion hurt the wrestling industry very bad.
- Also, though I am well aware that WWE will never be public about their side of the story so Punk’s is all we have; and in my book things will get worse for the WWE before they get better. I think that though the Punk chants were not as bad as they once were I wouldn’t be shocked if they come back around now. Bottom of Form

The fact of the matter, I disagree totally with what the WWE did and how they handled this, because if they were to handle this in January or the early part of the year then they wouldn’t look so bad now. I don’t support them and I am shocked they handled this the way they did and though I know at least one person will say “that’s just one side.” Well that’s the only side we have and if WWE cares so much then maybe they should tell their side, but they won’t. I also figured doing this the way I did would be different than what everyone else did so even though I sort of ripped the WWE I did it in a different way. Now feel free to tell me what you think about what happened and if WWE should tell their, and completely ignore the fact that it would be a publicity nightmare for them.
