WWE.COM: John Cena’s 10 greatest rivals
#6 CM Punk
It takes a bold, bold man to call himself The Best in the World without any hint of showmanship to it. CM Punk was nothing if not bold. The self-appointed heir apparent to Cena as the face of professional wrestling, Punk’s agitation over being passed over festered into an earth-shattering “pipe bomb” that took Cena, the McMahons, and the institution of sports-entertainment itself to task. He then promptly won Cena’s WWE Title and gallivanted off into retirement, but you probably don’t need Wikipedia to know The Straight Edge Superstar couldn’t stay away for long. He eventually came back to further challenge Cena’s dominance and beat him more often than not. These two were having classic matches for years after that initial clash. Perhaps the greatest disappointment in Punk’s untimely departure is knowing they definitely had a few more in them. — ANTHONY BENIGNO
As noted earlier, The Wrestling Observer recently reported that attorneys for CM Punk sent WWE a 22-page letter. It should be noted that there was no lawsuit filed, it was just a letter concerning royalties and WWE’s use of his likeness. WWE proceeded to slash the prices of all remaining CM Punk merchandise on WWEShop.com earlier this week. Punk has since been removed completely from WWEShop.com, and any searches for Punk end with no results.
Does he believe CM Punk when he says he will “never ever” be back in a wrestling ring?
"I’ve always been told to never say never in this business or "this guy will never work here" but yet here they are. So you never know. So far of all the nevers I’ve ever heard none of them have ever stuck but you never know."
CM Punk’s lawyers recently sent a 22-page letter to WWE over royalties and their use of his likeness, mainly him being featured in the WWE 2K15 video game.
This isn’t confirmed but WWE may have stopped sending Punk royalty checks over their claim that he breached his contract. Regarding the video game, the roster was put together before Punk quit the company.

I will not post them for the only reason that it is their privacy. It’s disrespectful. He doesn’t want them posted on the internet so I don’t know why we should post them. If you unfollow me because I don’t post them, then do it.
