CM Punk Sheds Light on WWE Departure
The hashtag #ThankYouPunk trended Twitter on Tuesday night after news broke that WWE had moved his profile to the Alumni section on dot com (Punk’s WWE Performer’s contract expired on Tuesday). Alex Barie covered Punk’s response, where he thanked fans with this Tweet:
Nope, thank YOU.Thanks for all the help and support through the years. Health and happiness above all.Don't ever take any shit from anybody.

Punk’s “Don’t ever take any shit from anybody” remark are his first comments in regards to his WWE departure since he walked out of the company the day after Royal Rumble 2014 at Raw in Cleveland, Ohio. They go right along with everything we’ve known and reported about his departure in that he was “over” the backstage politics and was generally unhappy with the usage of his character.
I responded on Twitter:
@CMPunk You the man Coach, thanks for the memories.
