WWE lost one of the company's biggest stars in it's history, as reported before Monday's RAW in CM Punk who left because he wasn't pleased with the company for more than one specific reason. Here, I'm going to examine some possible reasons why "The Voice of the Voiceless" left.
#3 Vince McMahon
It's no secret these two have always had their problems with each other off camera and backstage. Punk isn't one to kiss up just to be at the top of the ladder, unlike a few guys who have. This isn't to take away from their hard work or talent, but when we look at it, CM Punk was willing to do everything to make it to the WWE roster and then some. Despite being called up to the WWE roster (RAW/SmackDown) he still wasn't viewed as gold right away in the eyes of Vince McMahon.
#2 Company's lack of faith in new talent
The title says it all, pretty much. WWE, for whatever reason just seems reluctant to bring up or let newer talent and give them a real shot, like Daniel Bryan who quite frankly, with Punk out of the company deserves to be the face of the company, because guys like him are the future of this company. John Cena and Randy Orton aren't immortal, but they are and have been at the top for quite some time. I guess the opposite could be said here, though, just look at Curtis Axel or Ryback. Bottom line here is that Punk walked in these shoes, he knows what it's like to be seemingly invisible while making high risk sacrifices just to prove he's worth it.
#1 The company is the same
CM Punk once dressed up as a gangster at WrestleMania 22 in his hometown of Chicago, Illinois. He stood there only to witness a young John Cena take on a veteran Triple H in the main event for the WWE championship. Fast forward eight WrestleMaina seasons who are the faces of the company? You would think the company would have changed the face of the company, by now. It looks exactly the same, with the exception of Triple H not being apart of the active roster anymore. When CM Punk came in he wanted to bring change, and in some ways, he did. He helped The Shield make a name for themselves at the 2012 Survivor Series pay-per view event, he became the longest reigning WWE Champion in modern era, he cut one of the most controversial promos in the history. CM Punk made it to the top of the mountain, and he started all the way from the bottom.
