While we still do not have a definite answer as to how long he has been upset with the company, we do know now that CM Punk was already contemplating a departure from WWE as early as Royal Rumble 2014. He vented to Mick Foley at the time about not being happy within the company and having trouble dealing with injuries.
Mick Foley humorous revealed on Twitter this week that he is no longer following a porn star named Siri on Twitter. He felt compelled to remove her from his list after his son asked why he was following an adult actress. He still maintains a friendship with her in real life, however.
With Wrestlemania 30 plans changing on a daily basis backstage in WWE, it looks like the company is narrowing down the choices of opponents for Daniel Bryan at the pay per view. Triple H is the heavy favorite, but Kane has sprung up as a potential candidate as well.
On Twitter, Mick Foley made a joke to fans who are thinking about going to one of his comedy shows. The former WWE star stated that they were allowed to bring CM Punk signs to his events, which is basically mocking the company for confiscating signs from fans in support of Punk.
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.
A lot of wrestling fans are hoping that CM Punk makes his return to WWE soon. His biggest fan, though, might just be Mick Foley. The legendary performer recently revealed that he plans on speaking with Punk, in an attempt to convince him to come back and produce a few more classic matches before retiring.
Stephanie McMahon revealed on Twitter that she has a new jet plane. The belief is that WWE purchased the new vehicle for her because she will be attending events more frequently in the role of brand ambassador. Triple H and Vince McMahon will more than likely travel together to Monday Night Raw and Smackdown each week.
There are talks that Triple H feels disrespected by CM Punk, so he is backing off from the situation. He's not exactly in a rush to bring Punk back into WWE after what went down before Monday Night Raw. Vince McMahon, however, wants Punk pretty badly, so he has now taken over the situation backstage.
Another rumored reason about why CM Punk left WWE this week was the fact that he was not happy at all about working a Wrestlemania 30 program against Triple H, as he does not feel that it is a big deal. Punk was hoping for a much bigger role at the pay per view.
In a move that seems almost too petty to believe, it has now been confirmed that the official WWE account on Twitter is no longer following CM Punk after he walked out before Monday Night Raw this week. The decision could have been made by someone in the marketing or technology department as opposed to Vince McMahon or Triple H.
Initially, WWE was working towards a high profile match between Triple H and CM Punk at Wrestlemania 30, but with everything that has gone down since Monday Night Raw, those plans are being changed. Officials are now leaning towards doing a match between HHH and Daniel Bryan instead.
"I honestly never expected the type of attention that both my tweet and my Facebook post about my displeasure with the Royal Rumble would bring. I was just expressing an opinion, and it seemed to be in line with what many of you had on your mind last night as well. The response on both Twitter and Facebook dwarfed anything I'd received in the past, and I hope WWE will recognize this unprecedented response as a sign that a little tweaking might be needed in order to save this Wrestlemania from the prospect of 75,000 people booing, turning their backs, or walking out of its main event."

At the risk of ruining his chances of signing a new deal with the company involving his stand up comedy show, Mick Foley, whose contract expires in a few weeks, opted to be open and honest by speaking out against WWE for not pushing Daniel Bryan at Royal Rumble 2014.
"Does WWE actually hate their own audience? I've never been so disgusted with a PPV."

Daniel Bryan recently revealed that he wants to work a match against Triple H at Wrestlemania 30 if he is not booked in a match for the WWE Championship. The former world champion also stated that he would love to work with the Undertaker if management goes through with that idea.
