CM Punk has been pulled from all live events until WrestleMania 29 for a number of reasons including him being physically banged up. People, including Punk, are still downplaying the arm injury that he suffered in the RAW match against Kane last week. WWE officials want him fresh and ready for the big match at WrestleMania 29.
Speaking of Punk, there were a lot of people not happy with his backstage segment at last night’s RAW where he juggled around Paul Bearer’s urn to taunt The Undertaker. The feeling was that it wasn’t as good as the Punk-Bearer-Taker stuff from the week before and that this one was bad for WWE and just bad in general. On a related note, it’s said there is some kind of issue between Punk and WWE creative right now but we don’t know what those problems might be.
