CM Punk has not damaged his legacy by leaving WWE, according to legendary commentator Jim Ross. Punk abruptly departed the company following the Royal Rumble in January, and has not been on the roster since.

It is unclear when, or even if, CM Punk will return to WWE, with the reasons for his shock departure still yet to be officially confirmed. What is undoubted, however, is the impact Punk had on WWE during his time spent with the business, and Ross does not believe his star will diminish.

“I was also asked if CM Punk abruptly leaving WWE would adversely affect his legacy,” Ross said in response to an interview he had given to the Chicago Tribune. “My answer, a simple “Hell, no.”

CM Punk established himself as one of the most feted superstars of his generation in his six years with the company, during which he was able to earn the title of the longest reigning WWE champion of the modern era.

The 35-year-old, engaged to AJ Lee, is set to marry the Diva during his time off, with the latter having been granted a leave of absence having held the women’s title longer than anybody in the history of the business.
