cm punkUpdate On CM Punk

PWInsider.com is reporting relations between CM Punk and WWE were not very good, this coming after several reports of CM Punk signs being taken from fans at RAW. 

It was also noted that WWE is going to take further action to make sure Punk’s absence is not alluded to on WWE programming.  

Lesnar On Smackdown

We previously reported that Brock Lesnar was being advertised for last night’s Smackdown tapings in Wichita, Kansas, despite WWE later saying this was inaccurate. 

Lesnar was featured in a video promo for the show back in August, and he was even featured on the website for the INTRUST Bank Arena, host of last night’s tapings. Apparently WWE or someone close to the situation had removed Lesnar’s name from the ads on the arena website, but he was still in the video posted on the website this week. 

Lesnar obviously did not appear at the tapings, and no announcement was made about the advertising error in the arena. The WWE World Heavyweight Champion is not advertised for any more appearances until the December 8th episode of Monday Night RAW.
