WWE: New details on CM Punk being removed from Wrestlemania 30 events

See also

According to a Friday report by Wrestlezone, WWE has continued to make adjustments with the abrupt departure this week of superstar CM Punk which includes some moves that indicate that Punk will not be participating in Wrestlemania this year. The former WWE Champion walked out on the company this past Monday in Cleveland prior to ‘RAW’ going on the air.

Punk’s picture has been removed from the official poster for Wrestlemnaia 30 on April 6th in New Orleans. The current WM30 poster has superstars John Cena, Mark Henry, Brock Lesnar, The Undertaker, Alberto Del Rio and Randy Orton, and Punk has apparently been edited out.

The schedule for the official WWE Wrestlemania Fan Axxess convention which coincides with WM30 in New Orleans no longer features CM Punk. WWE Hall of Famer ‘Nature Boy’ Ric Flair appears to be Punk's replacement on the schedule of autograph signings. You can see the official schedule for WWE stars and legends at Wrestlemania Fan Axxess at this link.

Pro Wrestling Examiner’s Perspective: It is becoming abundantly clear that CM Punk’s walkout on WWE this week was anything but real and not a clever story device. Wrestlemania this year without Punk will still be the spectacle it that it is every year, but fans point out his absence at the Superdome. Punk's role as a rebel was tangible for fans who latched on to him. It seems WWE has another rebel to to rage against the machine in Daniel Bryan. Expect the Yes movement to take the place of the ‘Best in the World’ as WWE gets on the road to Wrestlemania.

Punk's walkout has been the talk of the wrestling world. In the video posted with this article, you can see WWE Hall of Famer 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin commenting on the situation which is fitting considering that at one point he did the same thing to WWE over 10 years ago.
