WWE Replaces CM Punk in Flintstones Movie, Distancing Company From Him

on

According to PWInsider.com, WWE is officially beginning the distancing process from CM Punk and have accepted the fact that he won’t be returning to the company anytime soon.

Interestingly enough, it is said that this process begins with the upcoming WWE animated film involving “The Flintstones” cartoon, which has been slated for release in 2015. Punk was originally supposed to be one of the major characters in the film, but has reportedly been replaced by Rey Mysterio.

The report also mentions the promoted “Slam City” episodes that WWE aired videos for on “Monday Night Raw” and says Punk will be included in that. It is said that WWE attempted to not promote his portions of the videos, which have been completed for several months. For instance, Kane is portrayed as having a mask in the episodes, something hasn’t had in some time.

There is also a “Camp WWE” adult-oriented cartoon that will be hitting the network, something Punk was also expected to be a part of. However, he will be written out now that the company no longer will utilize his likeness.

    Punk is an idiot! Passing up all these great opportunities just to stick it to the boss. I can’t even try and defend his case any longer, he needs to open up already about his gripe, so these articles can finally stop.

    • ChosenOne704

      I agree, plus that’s a lot of money he turning down.

      I agree with you, but I’m not done defending him. The man needs time off to heel and get his head back into wrestling.

  • Zig2K

    This is exactly what Stone Cold was talking about an why he said when he walked out it was the biggest mistake of his life. I hope CM Punk saved his money.

    • Sandy L

      He did

    What are we supposed to call Mysterio in the movie then? There’s no decent pun I can think of(unless Rey Mysteriock works…and it doesn’t sound right in my head). Also, imagine if when they finished the process for all future movies and events of this sort, Punk returns and then they gotta fix their sh*t all over again. I’m not saying it will happen. I’m just saying imagine if CM Punk came back just in time for contract negotiations after they finished their “removal process”.

      “Rey Rubblecava” Or “Mister Rock”

    it was never about the money with CM Punk; it was about respect and reconition. and now come mid summer; cm punk can go where ever he wants to. but wwe has to pay him his money until his contract is up. CM Punk also will be the biggest free agent in history since sting and goldburg.

      Free agent? Where is he going to go, TNA?

      • tnicols

        New Japan; ROH; TNA; or all 3.
