CM Punk to leave WWE (?)
Mike Johnson of PWInsider.com is reporting that CM Punk has yet to sign a new deal with WWE and is looking at the possibility of leaving the company when his current deal expires in a few months. Apparently the possibility of Punk leaving the company has been discussed internally for a while, but discussion picked up more during the European tour.
WWE has offered Punk a long-term deal but he has been hesitant about accepting it. Punk feels burned out and is displeased with his current position in the company. Punk, who has always worked a full-time road schedule, with the exception of his hip injury last year, is reportedly displeased that talent that debuted after him have been developed and pushed as bigger stars than he has been.
