Apparently there remains some mixed feelings within WWE right now regarding the CM Punk situation. Almost no one in the company agrees with Punk’s decision to walk out 30 minutes before a live television taping.
Many have sympathy for some of the concerns Punk had, but some argue that he was legitimately the number two guy in the company for a while. Additionally, it’s acknowledged that Punk was very popular with the fans, but the belief by some is that he was not a major ticket seller for live events, and rarely had a big impact on the company’s pay-per-view business. At the same time, it is understood that Punk was the number two merchandise seller for the company.
