Despite CM Punk not directly being referred to on television this past Monday night on RAW, aside from by John Cena, CM Punk is currently the top story on WWE.com’s website, talking about how he “invaded” Comic Con this past Thursday in San Diego while Triple H was on the stage. Obviously, at this point, it is completely obvious that the storyline of Punk “leaving” WWE is part of the ongoing storyline, but after being left in the dark on RAW Monday night, it seems odd that WWE is covering him as if he is currently a star on their roster, which he is, but not within the realm of the storyline.
It is especially interesting that they’re covering it as a top story as Punk “invaded” the Comic Con and took shots at Triple H, who is currently leading WWE as per the current WWE storyline that unfolded on RAW. In addition to the story, they added “uncut footage” of the incident, including shots of CM Punk and Triple H’s facial reactions as they spoke. The article is selling the publication of the article because they were “granted permission by WWE executives” to show the footage shot by a WWE camera-person from San Diego.
