News: CM Punk Reportedly Walks Out on WWE

CM Punk Leaves WWE In news that will no doubt cause quite a shake up especially during WrestleMania season, CM Punk reportedly "went home" before RAW this past week and doesn't seem to have any intention of returning any time soon.

Punk has somewhat of a history of heading for the door when he's unhappy; just a few years ago a real contractual situation was turned into a storyline where Punk walked out on the company after his infamous spree of "pipe bombs."  During that time Punk ended up re-signing with WWE and had his memorable over year long championship run.  Since then Punk has remained a popular WWE star but has really floated along without doing much of anything story wise in recent months which is what probably played a part in him finally calling it quits.

Breaking: Kaitlyn Parts Ways with WWE

WWE Diva Kaitlyn Leaves WWEWWE announced today that Kaitlyn has decided to leave the company to pursue other endeavors.  It seems like it's been a while since anyone on the main roster has either decided to leave or has been released, so Kaitlyn's sudden departure is a bit of a surprise. 

WWE made her TV debut with WWE in late 2010 and had a good run given the fact that it was one of the more weak periods for the WWE Divas.  While it took almost 3 years for Kaitlyn to win the WWE Diva's Championship, she was mainly featured as a top Diva and took part in some memorable feuds, most notably with former partner AJ Lee.  Kaitlyn was recently engaged to bodybuilder PJ Braun which also may have played a role in her decision as he publicly mentioned new projects she would now be working on in 2014.
