Jamie Jones: See you later, Punk

— Is he being a Punk or are we being Punk’d?

WWE superstar C.M. Punk has reportedly quit WWE because he is upset about not headlining “Wrestlemania 30” and he is unhappy with the direction of his character. Word is he walked out on the company shortly after “The Royal Rumble.” Reports are Punk was miffed that Batista — who returned after four years away from WWE — won the match to receive the automatic championship shot at “Wrestlemania” while Punk was to wrestle on the undercard against Triple H.

On the flip side, Punk departing WWE could all be an elaborate ruse to advance The Good Guys vs. The Authority storyline. Punk has not confirmed his status with WWE.
