WWE superstars CM Punk and AJ Lee appeared on television during the Chicago Cubs game with the Milwaukee Brewers on Saturday. The announcer talked to Punk about the history of wrestling at Wrigley Field and then Punk released a bombshell. CM Punk and AJ Lee will get married next month.
The news that the couple were dating came up after Lee showed up on “WWE Monday Night Raw” one night wearing an engagement ring. After much speculation, the engagement was finally confirmed. Shortly after that, Lee lost her WWE Diva’s title to Paige and has not been seen since. Lee took time off from the WWE to get things in order and to move to Chicago to move in with CM Punk.
Meanwhile, Punk walked out on the WWE the night after the “Royal Rumble” pay-per-view. The reasons given for CM Punk leaving as a mixture between burn out, nagging injuries, an unhappiness with the direction of his character and the fact that he had been on the road for so long without any time off. Punk has not returned since that time.
There have been rumors popping up ever since CM Punk walked out that he was close to returning to the WWE. Many thought he would show up when “WWE Monday Night Raw” went to Chicago. Others predicted he would be back for “Wrestlemania 30.” Neither of those happened. People also think he will return at “WWE Payback” since it also takes place in Chicago.
With CM Punk and AJ Lee getting married in June, it is not likely that Punk would return right before his wedding. The fact is that Punk’s contract expires in July and the WWE universe might have seen the last of him, at least for now. AJ Lee is still under contract and is expected to be back soon, but the upcoming wedding will probably push that return back as well.
