How The CM Punk Release Story Got Started Backstage, JR on Goldust and Cody’s WWE Status

– Jim Ross has updated the Q&A section on and was asked why Goldust and Cody Rhodes are apparently being “downgraded” on the company ladder. Ross replied:

“Cody’s future at age 28 is as a singles wrestler. Goldust has received a really nice return to WWE and is an asset as well. Goldust would likely make a great coach. I see both Rhodes brothers and the Outlaws as transitional teams who both likely won’t be together long term and over the long haul. I have enjoyed both teams very much as supporting role acts.”

– Regarding the report that WWE had granted CM Punk his release on Friday, the rumors started backstage when Punk’s girlfriend AJ Lee was given the weekend off. People were just speculating backstage that AJ left and that led to the Punk rumors starting up. AJ is still with the company and Punk has not been granted his release.

    She was given time off to keep Punk happy, so they could hang out all weekend without Punk being at the live shows. –

    Nah kidding but I’m not giving up on the Punk thing being a work.

    Agreed dave. I have a feeling this is legit, but I’m keeping it in the back of my mind that this whole deal is possibly a work

  3. Ian says:

    That makes no sense that both the Rhodes brothers and NAo are transitional teams…why would you go from one transitional team to another.

  4. obie says:

    @ian for a transition

  5. T says:

    If it is a work the whole angle is botched. The only people who know Punk is gone is the IWC. Your average fan (which is the majority of fans) has no idea what is going on with Punk.

    Also, hasn’t this Punk walking away/leaving the company been done before? You would like to think that creative has a better story for him than rehashing the same story they did with him.
