WWE stoop to new low after taking shots at CM Punk

Despite parting ways with WWE over a year ago, CM Punk is still a hot topic within the company and amongst the WWE Universe.

Punk's departure came as a huge shock in January last year, when he separated from WWE over a number of reasons including creative differences.

Now it seems WWE are still not quite over his absence and have taken to their online WWE Shop to take a hugely petty dig at the former Straight-Edge Saviour.

Cheap shot

If anyone was to search for CM Punk in order to find some of his merchandise on the online shop right now, they would be taken to a results page which asks if they meant 'CM Junk'.

As petty as it sounds, this search result is actually true and undoubtedly shows that the company are far from over his sudden departure.

It is however almost a year and a half since he parted ways with WWE which should mean that at least one of the parties would have moved on, but clearly this is not the case.

Even if this is an accident or merely a short-term joke which someone is having, it is unquestionably sneaky and really immature on behalf of the company.

It is an especially cheap shot given the success CM Punk had during his popular tenure as part of WWE with his merchandise being sold on the shop.

All kinds of clothing and accessories with Punk's name on were bought by so many members of the WWE Universe, of all ages.

Now, Punk is currently promoting his own independent brand of t-shirts which may well be the reason WWE have decided to take this dig at him now.

Bad decision

The company is probably also angry at the amount of press Punk is being given surrounding his decision to make a move to UFC, with his debut fight expected to be either at the end of this year or the start of 2016.

Realistically any sort of move like the one which has been made with the search on the WWE Shop is only going to make fans see WWE as bitter.

This in turn would surely mean it will drive more followers of the company away and even possibly in the future, to other sports such as UFC which would doubtlessly be detrimental to the professional wrestling industry.
