Big Update on CM Punk's Post-WrestleMania Status

Amidst concern within WWE that CM Punk is currently working with several nagging injuries, Punk has been pulled from all post-WrestleMania live event advertisements which indicates he will be given some time off after the big PPV to heal up.

Punk is not being advertised for any house show events following 'Mania, including the European tour which kicks off on 4/17 in The Netherlands. Punk is also not being advertised for any WWE events in May, including the Extreme Rules PPV taking place on 5/19. We previously reported that Punk is likely to be missing the Extreme Rules PPV, which is one of the reasons why WWE is booking both The Rock and Brock Lesnar to appear on the show.
