"So Punk allegedly walked out & quit WWE. Interesting. It's impossible 2 understand the toll that job can have on you-unless you've lived it. A 'screw you' from Punk? NO.

From my experience- When you're in constant physical pain, frustrated the majority of the time, & resent what u love, things have to change."
