To provide more perspective on the current situation with CM Punk and WWE, I want to go back to May 2013 when Punk was on his two-month hiatus from the company. At the time, Punk was in no rush to come back and hadn't given much thought about a return program. While Punk preferred to come back at SummerSlam, WWE wanted him for Payback in June in Chicago. As we saw, the latter is what actually happened.

However, referencing our initial report on WrestlingNewsWorld.com, Punk's main focus was Wrestlemania XXX. We were told at the time Punk felt like he "stole the show" with Undertaker at Wrestlemania 29 and his goal was to get into "at least the second highest profile match" at the show this year.

With his WWE contract coming up in July, Punk's underlying strategy was all about Wrestlemania. Knowing this information, it's certainly understandable about how being in the Wrestlemania undercard in his contract year could have been all it took for him to throw in the towel.

In speaking with sources Wednesday morning, multiple people are saying Vince McMahon is hard at work in trying to get Punk back to make this all into one big angle. We have more about that at this link.
