WWE superstar CM Punk has left WWE, following a meeting with WWE officials at RAW this Monday.
CM Punk reportedly told Vince McMahon and other WWE officials that he was going home and not coming back, possibly due to WWE’s plans for him at WrestleMania where he was due to face Triple H. Punk is under contract with WWE until July.
In a recent interview with Ariel Helwani, CM Punk noted that he does not know what he’s going to do yet [regarding his contract] and he seemed to express a lack of enthusiasm for the gruelling schedule of WWE.
TMZ says that Punk was “livid” after learning Batista was set to win the Royal Rumble match because he feels Batista is not in great wrestling shape.
Punk tweeted this on Monday, just before he would have told WWE officials he was leaving.
Thanks for all the support. Keep being you guys, it's pretty cool.—

After Punk notified Vince McMahon of the change, RAW re-writes began, but details are conflicting at this time. PWInsider notes that one of their sources claimed Punk was due to wrestle Antonio Cesaro and lose via interference from Kane, who Punk is currently feuding with.
With Punk gone and seemingly not coming back, WWE are now changing plans for WrestleMania and are instead said to be going with Daniel Bryan vs Triple H at WrestleMania.
As ever with professional wrestling, this could all be a big work, so keep an eye on Pro Wrestling Is Fake for updates.
