According to a May 18 report from Wrestling Inc., CM Punk's Twitter account sprung back to life this week after a five-month hiatus from the popular social media site. Punk, 35, posted a series of tweets to express his frustration with Bailey, the mascot of the Los Angeles Kings. Punk, of course, is a huge hockey fan.
Since Punk's beloved Chicago Blackhawks are playing the Kings for a chance at earning a spot in the 2014 Stanley Cup Finals, it makes perfect sense why the WWE legend would start feuding with Bailey. Punk and Bailey appear to have made a friendly agreement regarding the series.
When the Blackhawks win, Punk wants Bailey to wear a Chicago jersey at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. If the Kings win, Bailey suggested that Punk wears a Los Angeles jersey to a game in Chicago. Both parties agreed to the deal. It could just be friendly Twitter banter, or it might actually happen. Time will tell how it all plays out.
Prior to this week, Punk hadn't tweeted since late-January. WWE Universe has been constantly checking Punk's Twitter page to see if he provided any new updates on the status of his return to the WWE. Unfortunately, he has not. Despite walking away from the WWE five months ago, Punk hasn't addressed his contract situation.
No one knows if Punk will ever return to the WWE fold, or if he's retired for good. He apparently isn't in communication with anyone from the WWE, and his former girlfriend says he's happily retired. Lately, Punk has mostly been spotted at sporting events around the Chicago area. He hasn't been seen very much in public besides that.
Punk led the seventh-inning stretch at a Chicago Cubs game at Wrigley Field over the weekend, and he's usually in attendance at Chicago Blackhawks games in his hometown of Chicago. The Blackhawks are currently three wins away from a spot in the Stanley Cup Finals. What can WWE fans take away from this situation? Punk seems like a man who is happily retired, and not thinking about the WWE at all.
