UFC fighter CM Punk was one of WWE’s most popular wrestlers of the last decade. His in-ring style and brashness on the microphone got fans behind him whether he played a good guy or bad guy on TV. Punk overcame the odds because he was never meant to become a top tier name with WWE but when all was set and done, he proved his critics wrong.
Things turned sour towards his latter months with WWE. Punk competed in the 2014 Royal Rumble but, according to comments made to the press and on Colt Cabana’s podcast, he was dealing with nagging injuries. Punk walked out the next night prior to an episode of Monday Night Raw.
He was eventually given his unconditional release from the company but the relationship with WWE and Punk got worse after he took to Colt Cabana’s podcast to rip on the company for, what he claimed, was incompetence from WWE doctors for not properly treating him when he was injured. He also blasted Vince McMahon’s son-in-law Triple H for allegedly burying him behind his back and costing him money because he was never slotted in the number 1 slot.
Punk is currently embroiled in a lawsuit with WWE doctor Chris Amann and his name is not uttered anymore on WWE television. You can “never say never” in the wrestling industry but, as things stand, it doesn’t look like we will ever see a Punk-WWE reconciliation anytime soon.

Norm Macdonald is setting the record straight after the backlash he received for comments about the #MeToo movement.
Macdonald was on The View on Thursday and said that his comments about #MeToo were taken out of context. He also said that his comment about being glad that #MeToo slowing down was a reference to Chris Hardwick and that people should not automatically make a judgment on a he-said-she-said case. Macdonald acknowledged that if someone had accusations from “500 women” then “obviously the guy is guilty.”
He was also asked about his “Tonight Show” appearance being canceled in the wake of his comments. The full interview can be seen below.
