-C.M. Punk has worked hard to improve his reputation backstage, according to multiple sources. There are still some skeptics he has to win over, but he’s gone out of his way to shed his rep for being “snarky.” No word yet on whether he’s won over Raw lead writer Brian Gewirtz, who referred to him in the past as an “Edge knockoff.” Gewirtz has also been known to mock the way Punk rolls his wrists.
-The reported working plan is for Ron Killings to debut on television next month. The latest creative plan is for him to use “The Truth” nickname.
