The Very Latest on the Reasons Why CM Punk Quit WWE

cm punk quit wweTMZ noted earlier today that the primary reason why CM Punk quit WWE is because of WWE's decision to have Batista win the Royal Rumble match on Sunday night.

PWInsider.com has updated this developing story and is clarifying that while he might have been upset with that creative choice, Punk quitting WWE had nothing to do with Batista personally, as the two are good friends. The decision was ultimately made due to to a collection of issues Punk has had recently, with a handful of them being that he is burnt out, he is dealing with multiple nagging injuries, and there's a fundamental difference between what WWE sees as a big push for Punk, and what he feels is a big push, and that is NOT, apparently, facing Triple H at WrestleMania.

Punk WWE Documentary Pulled from Netflix

Several readers have sent in word that the WWE-released "Best in the World" CM Punk documentary disappeared from Netflix today. While it cannot be confirmed that the disappearance of the release from Netflix is a WWE reaction to Punk quitting the company, the timing is certainly interesting, coupled with the fact that the WWE Twitter account unfollowed Punk today.
