If you haven’t heard, CM Punk gave a version of a shoot interview that was actually approved by WWE Chairman Vince McMahon as a way of getting buzz around the watercooler for the company heading into the Money in the Bank pay-per-view in mid-July, and a take at a real-life contract dispute by Punk and WWE over whether he will extend his contract with the company after it ends on Monday, July 18. Below are recent tweets from various former and current WWE stars and other wrestlers in regards to Punk’s promo last night.
