UPDATE ON FUTURE OF TOP WWE TALENT

By Mike Johnson on 2013-12-29 22:18:52
We've received a slew of emails from readers in the last 24 hour following a Tweet posted by CM Punk regarding his status with WWE:

Based on when he signed his last WWE deal in 2011, I believe Punk is signed with the company through summer 2014.

Punk has often hinted (and at comic convention Q&As has outright said) that he would retire sooner than anyone thinks.

If he was hinting at retirement, the time frame of his contract would mean he's signed for at least another 7-8 months. Of course, he could always come to terms with WWE for another deal as well, so I wouldn't read too much into the Tweet in that regard. The Tweet may have also been in regard to his match quality with the idea that he may not have many matches of that level left in his career.

But, for those who thought it may have been a tease that Punk was leaving the company imminently, no one within WWE believes that to be the case.
