Many of you may have noticed during Monday Night Raw that WWE did not mention that CM Punk will be back on WWE Backstage this week.
They did hype that Becky Lynch will be the special guest this week and she was pictured with Renee Young, Paige and Christian but there was not one word said about Punk, who hasn’t been on the show since December. The @WWEonFOX Twitter account confirmed that Punk is indeed scheduled to be in the studio this week. It’s also interesting that WWE did not mention him on Friday’s SmackDown when they first announced that Lynch would be the special guest for this week’s show.
There is no word on why they chose not to mention him but it could have something to do with Punk’s now-deleted tweet to The Miz where he said the following: “Go suck a blood money covered d**k in Saudi Arabia you f**king dork.”
WWE has another show in Saudi Arabia scheduled for next month and that is a sensitive topic since they don’t want to do anything to endanger that relationship and they don’t want any more negative headlines after the travel issues that occurred in November. I would imagine that people in WWE were not too happy about Punk’s tweet to The Miz.
