WWE: CM Punk has completely detached himself from wrestling, says star

Published 9 Comments

Superstar wrestler Chris Jericho aired some explosive opinions on CM Punk when he sat down for a chat with Sam Roberts on Roberts' Wrestling Podcast this week.

Punk left WWE in January the day after Royal Rumble following a dispute. The acrimonious exit has been put down to the fact that Punk was burnt out and also that Punk fell out with Vince McMahon.

We can debate those issues to the end of the earth, but one thing we do know is that when Punk left he left everyone behind. Rather than keep in touch with friends in the WWE, superstar wrestler Chris Jericho revealed this week that Punk has completely detached himself from wrestling altogether.

Leaving friends behind

"Punk and I were pretty tight and I haven't heard from him since then. It didn't surprise me that he left, it just surprised me that he stopped talking to everybody," Jericho told the Sam Roberts Wrestling Podcast.

"It surprised me that he stopped talking to me, because we talked about a lot besides wrestling. And that probably surprised me more than anything, I can't believe he just detached himself from wrestling, and from what I understand I'm not the only one. I can't believe he detached himself from a lot of people that thought they were his friends. That's his decision and that's kind of a drag. I mean, I don't give a f*** if he wrestles or not."

Will CM Punk return?

Although CM Punk is unlikely to return anytime soon, Jericho believes you can never say never in the WWE. Despite his criticisms of Punk, the superstar wrestler added that this time away might just rejuvenate him like it did for Jericho.

"Maybe he will come back, maybe he won't. In 2005, I did the same and benefitted from freshening myself up a bit. That might work as well for Punk."
