Everything That You Need To Know About CM Punk Following His Two Month Sabbatical From WWE – Who He Wants To Work With, Health Update, Another Bout He’d Like For Wrestlemania XXX

CM Punk is said to be relaxed and refreshed following his near two month sabbatical from WWE. We still do not have confirmation but continue to operate under the assumption he will work against Chris Jericho at Payback on Sunday.

He has plans to attend Wednesday’s Stanley Cup Finals Game 1 between the Boston Bruins and his hometown Chicago Blackhawks. Punk was in Detroit on Tuesday night at a concert at The Fillmore (details here). Punk doesn’t take much solace in the ratings being in the toilet without him but would love to show Vince McMahon that he can move the needle.

The feeling is Punk eventually wants a program with Daniel Bryan and if he can’t get a match against Brock Lesnar at Wrestlemania XXX, he’ll lobby to work Bryan and steal the show. Punk’s hair is a little longer and he got some new tattoos during his time off.

As for his health, Punk is said to be in a “much happier place” and his knee is a lot better. It isn’t 100% and might not be without surgery but it’s good enough to resume working in the ring.

    Good am glad and i am all for a program with Bryan! Glad two of my favs are back in Punk and Ziggler

    Now CM Punk wants to steal the show with Daniel Bryan at WM? What happened at WM 27 when WWE pitched the idea of Punk working with Daniel Bryan? I guess now that Daniel Bryan is a star CM Punk is eager to work with him. What a douche. Here’s the video if anyone wants to see it:

    Also, CM Punk has no place to talk about ratings or even taking joy in the ratings being low right now. The ratings dropped in the fall of 2012 when he was in the midst of his run as WWE Champion.

      Bryan and him are good friends, always have been.

      • Nick k

        Yea this Guy is a little delusional he just dislikes punk because he’s better than the miz. If you payed attention to that video he didn’t bury Daniel Bryan he was just at main event level on smackdown and didn’t want to return to the mid card…too bad miz didn’t have that mentality because that’s what happened to him. And the next year punk and Bryan had a great main event program. The hatred on this site for punk is comical, I’m surprised how many “marks” are on here.

        • Justin Lal

          You got it wrong. He should have jumped at the chance to work with Daniel Bryan at Wm 27. Why didn’t he? Because Daniel Bryan was beneath him. Now that Bryan is a star he’s all about working with him at WM. Normally this would be OK. But when you claim to be for “the little guy” one would think that Punk would want to work with someone who was just getting his feet wet in the WWE. Punk is all about himself and you know it. The real change he was talking about was just like Cena said, “Make CM Punk a star.”

            HAHAHAHA have you noticed that you are on your own arguing with a hole page & nobody agrees with you, but don’t worry you must be 100% right & everyone else must be wrong. Its so obvious why Punk would now go against Bryan at WM 30 & didn’t at WM 27 I cant even be bothered saying it as you are obviously just being a troll & your point means nothing to anyone

          • amaanakter

            you my friend are delluded.

      • Justin Lal

        No one is saying that they aren’t good friends. But I’m wondering why CM Punk rejected an idea to work with Bryan at WM 27. Remember this was pre-pipe bomb Punk — not exactly a major star at that time.

        • Nick k

          Your lack of knowledge really shows, you seem to be forgetting that punk was the top heel on smackdown and was working with top stars such as the undertaker.He was protecting his spot as a main eventer that video you had made that clear. Admit it you’re spinning this because you’re mad that punk took the miz spot by simply being better.

          • Danny_Boy

            Protecting his spot? Funny, because if someone like Cena or HHH would of said that you along with the rest of the virgins on this site would of shitted on them. But b/c it’s your hero with CM Chump you guys give him pass, you guys crack me up

          • sir-rusty82

            You getting upset Danny_Boy???

          • Danny_Boy

            Nope not at all

          • sir-rusty82

            Well why all the name calling this is just a discussion, you do realise that the more you try to start an argument about men who wrestle eachother in their underwear kinda makes you look like the virgin :P

          • Nick K

            ssh the adults are speaking

          • Danny_Boy

            Exactly, the adults are talking so shut up

    • Nick k

      Different time when the ratings went down while he was champ, that run however made him the draw he is now. Punks the man like it or not.

      • Justin Lal

        How is it different? The ratings went lower with him as champion compared to past years during that time period.

        • Gary Robert

          Punk didn’t mention the ratings. The article did. Not that it matters. The ratings will be better with him on the show. Its just a fact. He’s a top star. Obviously more top stars being involved boost the ratings. Who the championship belt on really has nothing to do with the ratings just as WWE itself no longer treats the belt like it was many years ago.

          • Danny_Boy

            How is it a fact? Rating were terrible with him as the champ. Ratings are better now then they were this time last year

          • sir-rusty82

            Everyone hail to every word Justin Lal says because he is always right & nobody knows as much as he does

      • Danny_Boy

        CORRECTION: Cena is the man. Punk will always be 2nd fiddle.

        • Nick K

          crowd is getting quieter and quieter everytime he comes out, its almost over for him. So the Guy that calls people virgins is a cena mark? Lol should’ve known.

          • Danny_Boy

            Last I checked he still draws better then Punk, sales more merchandise, more Facebook & Twitter followers, still gets very big reactions. So quieter & quieter my ass. If it was ALMOST over for him then why did McMahon have him go over The Rock and not Punk? I’ll let you ponder that for a sec while you play with yourself little boy.

          • Nick K

            It’s so obvious that you’re a fat 13 year old kid. Done with you super mark.

          • Scott Davies

            I see both points of views on this. Daniel Bryan is fat hot in WWE as his matches have been show stealing the last 2 weeks on Raw. Punk is now seeing the dollar signs & if I were Punk & knew there was money to be made I would do it too.

      • Danny_Boy

        And it’s pretty obvious that your a 35 year old virgin. You’ve been posting on this board for how long now? And still have yet too make any valid points.

  • Xavier

    CM Punk is a great wrestler but he’s becoming more and more of a diva every day with his demands. Let’s just hope he doesn’t threaten to quit AGAIN like he’s done time & time again. What point is he trying too prove to McMahon again?

  • amaanakter

    by the way is that an extra on the DVD i have it and i haven’t come across that? or is it a blu-ray extra or something?

    • Danny_Boy

      It’s an extra on the DVD/

        Thanks
