While CM Punk was never scripted into last Monday’s RAW from Chicago, before the confirmation came down that he would not be appearing, there was some chatter or at least hope within WWE that maybe he would come out and do some kind of retirement speech or farewell. There was also some talk of doing a four-way at WrestleMania XXX with Punk, Daniel Bryan, Batista and Randy Orton but that “just was not the situation” because of Punk choosing to stay away from the company.
