Since WWE knew that the audience would attempt to get several CM Punk chants going throughout the night, they gave special instructions to Randy Orton about how he should cut his promo to open up Monday Night Raw. To his credit, he did a good job of speaking over the crowd.
Another possible cause of the backstage heat between CM Punk and WWE is the fact that he did not want to do the job to Triple H at Wrestlemania 30. Punk felt that the company was going in that direction since he has refused to sign a contract extension with them.
"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. Punk's gotta prioritize his own sanity & health. Sometimes WWE isn't conducive to those two things. From my experience- When you're in constant physical pain, frustrated the majority of the time, & resent what u love, things have to change."

Word is now filtering out that CM Punk had expressed his frustrations with WWE while speaking with people at the Wizard World convention in Portland this past Friday. Those in attendance stated that he seemed disinterested and disengaged from his job.
