Backstage Update on When CM Punk Might Return Posted by Steve Carrier on 04/21/2013 at 08:28 AM
- CM Punk actually has 4 different injuries to his knee at one time. Punk has a lot of pain in his lower leg but not the knee itself, despite the number of injuries. He has a strained ACL and other torn ligaments.
Before the leg injury, Punk was already planning on taking time off after WrestleMania 29 because he was mentally burnt out. Doctors advised him to stay out of the ring at least 6 weeks. He will not be at this Monday's RAW from England and how soon WWE asks him to return will likely depend on how the ratings are over the next few weeks.

- At Monday's RAW from Greenville, South Carolina, a fan
reportedly held up a "RAW Is Generico" sign and was moved by security, taken
from his paid seat to the opposite side of the arena and a seat filler took his
seat at ringside. The fan asked security why he was being moved and was told the
people running the show didn't want him sitting there because of his sign.
The fan reportedly asked if they could just take the sign and let him
sit at ringside but was told by a security guard that he was about to be kicked
out because the people running the show, presumably WWE officials, didn't want
him there. Another guard told the fan that wasn't correct, they just didn't want
him in front of the camera. Apparently another man who was sitting with the fan
also had his seats changed after he was seen holding up a sign related to Ring
Stond Punk op het punt om op te stappen juist voor wm 29?
Backstage News on CM Punk's WWE Status Posted by Steve Carrier on 04/17/2013 at 08:55 AM
Part of the reason why Brock Lesnar has returned and The Undertaker is working next week is because CM Punk won't be returning anytime soon and WWE needs star power on TV.
Before this past Monday, the plan was for CM Punk to come out on RAW and whine about losing at WrestleMania 29, then walk out of the company in the storylines. This was held off from the post-WrestleMania RAW because officials felt that Punk would get a big reaction from the post-WrestleMania RAW crowd. Another reason it was held off is because Punk wasn't happy with the verbiage they wanted him to use and didn't want to come off as a whiner.
A few weeks back, Punk had a big blow up with WWE creative and wanted to give his notice to quit the company. He went and worked it out with top WWE officials. At that time, it was decided that Punk wouldn't be working live events anymore, just TV and WrestleMania 29.
Between the backstage problems and severely tearing knee ligaments at WrestleMania, Punk was written off TV this past Monday at RAW. Punk will be fine once he rests up and lets his knees heal. Right now there is no set plan for Punk to return but word is that he won't be back until SummerSlam time.

- Here is the full statement from the Top Rope Wrestling promoters
regarding Kevin Nash and Sean Waltman's tweets from the weekend:
was no "scam," and such an allegation, in a legal sense, is defamatory. Mr. Nash
was paid $4,000 for his appearance, by check, mailed to him on Monday, April 8,
funds cleared by the bank on Friday, April 12. Mr. Waltman was paid $1,200, in
cash, the night of the show. He did not have to complain to get his payment. In
fact, neither Nash nor Waltman complained to anybody in Top Rope management
about pay the night of the show. They both checked in to the hotel that we had
booked for them after the show, and we only became aware of their complaints
regarding pay when we saw the tweets from the two this morning.
travel and accommodations paid for by the promotion as well, as is standard.
There was no agreement in place with talent to disburse any of those revenues to
talent. For Mr. Nash and Mr. Waltman to suggest otherwise is untrue, and we feel
is clearly intended to do harm to the reputation of Top Rope Pro Wrestling, not
only in the sense of the allegations regarding pay and the "scam" comment, but
also in the adjectives used by Mr. Nash calling one of our staffers a "scumbag"
and "hick," and as such constitutes actionable defamation on the part of Mr.
Nash and Mr. Waltman.
Similar arrangements regarding the VIP Meet and
Greet were in place with Ricky Morton and Robert Gibson and Mick Foley. Jake
"The Snake" Roberts also did a VIP Meet and Greet, and we agreed with him ahead
of time to give him half of the proceeds of that meet and greet to go toward his
medical bills. Jake was paid $1,000 from the VIP ticket sales per our agreement.
It is telling that Mr. Waltman has taken down eight of the nine tweets
related to the show, including the most inflammatory ones, about not getting
paid and about "scams." Perhaps he was given legal advice as to what constitutes
slander and defamation and came to the realization that he had crossed the line
and exposed himself to legal action.
We are considering all options to
correct for the slanderous and defamatory statements made by Mr. Nash and Mr.
Waltman and the damage to our reputation that has been done with these
materially false messages being sent out to their hundreds of thousands of
followers on Twitter and the additional coverage that has been given to their
messages on various wrestling news websites.
We will also be in contact
with the state commission that regulates pro wrestling in Virginia regarding the
wrestling licenses of Mr. Nash and Mr. Waltman. It is our hope that we can
prevent other promoters in Virginia, at the least, from being exposed to this
kind of malicious treatment from these two performers in the future."
appears they resolved the problems as Kevin Nash tweeted the following:
"Top Rope Productions was not at fault .Marvin Ward working for the
promotion lied and withheld payment due to me."
Top Rope followed up
"Kevin Nash has corrected the record regarding Top Rope
Promotions on Twitter (@realkevinnash) with respect to payment issues at Night
of the Superstars. We have been in contact with Kevin by email to thank him for
clearing up what we both agreed was a misunderstanding.
"We look forward
to being able to putting our focus on building upon what was a very successful
house show at Night of the Superstars last night."
- Kevin Nash tweeted the following about an independent wrestling promoter in
"Head's up to anyone that doesn't want to work with a scumbag
promoter. Pass on Marvin Ward and Top Rope Productions out of Virginia. Dirtbag.
This scumbag has several names Marvin, Doug keep an eye out.It is @TheRealXPac
and my mission that this hick never runs another show. Will be going to the
Virginia wresting commission on Monday to file against both him and the
