CM Punk no longer communicating with current WWE superstars

According to an Apr. 1 post from Bleacher Report, CM Punk is officially engaged to WWE diva A.J. Lee.

Punk, 35, has been dating Lee for several years, but it wasn't until the March 31 episode of WWE Monday Night Raw that WWE Universe learned they will be getting married.

Lee was spotted with a nice piece of jewelry around her ring finger, which would indicate that she will be tying the knot with Punk.

At present time, Lee is the only current WWE superstar that Punk is in communication with.

Whatculture.com reported on March 29 that the WWE is getting the ultimate silent treatment from Punk, from the lowest jobber on the WWE roster all the way up to promotional head honcho Vince McMahon.

Apparently Punk is trying to distance himself from his former friends because he wants nothing to do with the WWE.

Punk famously left the WWE following this year's Royal Rumble, where he spent 50 grueling minutes battling it out inside the ring, only to lose to Batista.

Punk was apparently so annoyed that Batista won the rumble, and that he never got the big push he felt he deserved, that he decided to go back home to Chicago.

Punk has been mostly out of the public eye since leaving the WWE just a few months back. His only public sighting was at a Chicago Blackhawks game, where he was spotted with former indie wrestler Colt Cabana.

Unfortunately for WWE fans, the Punk situation isn't getting any better. At first, most WWE fans felt that McMahon would be able to find a solution to the matter, and that cooler heads would prevail after a short break by Punk.

However, things have gone from bad to worse in a short matter of months. Punk is now even further away from a potential comeback than ever before, and the WWE has been working feverishly to erase him from the memory of wrestling fans.

As Wrestlemania XXX approaches, the WWE continues to rewrite scripts that Punk was originally expected to be a part of. The new Wrestlemania XXX co-main now features Daniel Bryan vs Triple H, rather than Punk vs "The Game."

Even Paul Heyman, Punk's best friend in the industry, hasn't been speaking with him since he left the promotion.

"I said everything about CM Punk that I felt in my heart and at the end of the day, we don't have that television show on the air to sing the praises of those who are not with us or just heap praise on people because we like them," Heyman said of his recent "pipe bomb" about Punk that he dropped on the crowd in attendance at a recent Monday Night Raw taping in Chicago. "The television show is a promotional vehicle to entice the audience to purchase the network or the individual pay-per-view. My task at hand is to elicit the response from the viewer that they find the Brock Lesnar versus Undertaker match compelling enough to purchase the pay-per-view or get involved with WWE Network to see the match.

"So when I went out in Chicago, I knew my responsibility was to sell you on Brock Lesnar vs The Undertaker any way that I had to, which included sitting there for the first ten minutes and discussing the 800-pound elephant in the room, which is why CM Punk wasn't appearing in his hometown. ... As a performer, to get the opportunity to come out in Chicago to CM Punk's music and to sit down Punk-style in the ring, and tell the true intimate story of this Paul Heyman guy, while I'm doing my job promoting Brock versus Undertaker is the greatest professional high you can offer me."

Only Punk knows for sure if he'll ever return to the WWE fold. Time will tell how the situation plays out. Until then, WWE fans will just have to sit back and wonder when their hero will come back to them.
