Jim Ross Blogs About CM Punk Leaving WWE: Is It A Storyline? Will He Be Back?
WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has updated his blog, which you can read in its entirety at JRsBarBQ.com. Here are some highlights of what he said about the CM Punk situation:
Is Punk’s WWE Departure Surprising? “Was it really unexpected? Likely not. Punk has not been a happy camper within WWE for quite some time. That point has been made abundantly clear on many occasions. He’s tired, he’s beat up, and he’s not enjoying himself at work … Punk is mentally and physically burned out and he’s not having enough professional fulfillment to work through his issues. He needs a break.”
Some Fans Thinking It Is Just A Storyline: “No, I don’t think this is an elaborate, TV storyline but instead it’s all about a highly motivated, talented wrestler who, at times, feeds off the chip on his shoulder, which is not a bad thing, who has hit the wall and isn’t enjoying what once was his primary professional focus….dare say his life. “
Will Punk Ever Return? “I do not think that Punk has wrestled his last match in WWE. I do feel that it’s best for all involved for Punk to take much needed time off even if it means that he misses a WrestleMania.”
“CM Punk has been good for WWE. WWE has been good for CM Punk. I’m hopeful that they will resolve their issues and be good together once again in the future. Hopefully, the lines of communications, to whatever degree that can be maintained will remain open. If so, then this matter has a much better chance of being rectified.”
