CM Punk looking to leave WWE?
CM Punk could be considering leaving WWE when his contract expires in a few months, according to pwinsider.com.
Citing WWE sources, the report said that Punk has been offered a long-term deal, but he has not signed it because he is burned out from all the traveling and also is unhappy with his position in the company.
If the report is accurate, Punk’s refusal to sign a new deal could just be a negotiating ploy. However, I wouldn’t be all that surprised if he truly wasn’t pleased with his current spot.
Despite being a three-time world champion and a guy who is usually in the mix, he has not been consistently booked as strong as some other guys at the top level.
It’s also no secret that Punk is a bit of a free spirit. Perhaps he has decided that the corporate environment of WWE just isn’t a good fit for him.
Punk – whom I consider to be one of the best all-around performers in the business today– would undoubtedly have no shortage of options if he does leave WWE. It will be interesting to see how this plays out.
