WWE: CM Punk 'knows the fans aren't stupid'

Published Add your comment

Former WWE tag team champion Trevor Murdoch has weighed in on the saga involving CM Punk.

Speaking in an interview with Tommy Fierro in the VOC Nation ITR Radio Network that was quoted by WrestlingInc.com, Murdoch - who spent three years in the WWE between 2005-08 and formed a memorable partnership with the late Lance Cade - suggested that Punk knows the fans 'aren't stupid' and speculated the a failure to follow through with storylines could be one of the reasons for his surprise departure.

"It's all speculation based upon my experience with the WWE and with Punk, but the WWE has a very bad habit of not following through with storylines. That's probably one of the reasons that Punk stepped away," he said.

"He knows the fans aren't stupid. He came into WWE with a fantastic following, but WWE didn't understand it and kept him in developmental longer than they should have."

36-year-old CM Punk - real name Phillip Jack Brooks - was one of the most popular faces in the professional wrestling industry, but disappeared from screens earlier this year in circumstances that do not appear to have been fully explained.

Punk's hometown fans were seemingly desperate that he would make an appearance when RAW came to Chicago a few weeks ago, but it did not come to pass.

Many still harbour hopes that he will make a comeback to the WWE in time for Wrestlemania XXX in New Orleans next month.

What do you think, WWE fans? Is Murdoch right here? Why do you think Punk appears to have walked away from the business?

Will he return? Leave your thoughts and opinions in the comment box provided below...
