After learning that he was booked to lose on a house show card, the report says, Punk reportedly asked the road agent if the reports of him being in WWE’s doghouse were true. The agent denied the idea that there was heat on Punk, but then told colleagues about the conversation, giving them the idea that Punk was complaining about doing the job.
Of course, because wrestlers like Carlito, Rob Van Dam and Shelton Benjamin have received heat for “no-selling” being booked in jobs, one has to wonder if Punk had a viable option in this situation, notes the Observer.
