As we reported last week, CM Punk’s attorneys sent WWE a 22 page letter regarding non-payment of royalties Punk feels he’s owed, as the company continues to use his name and likeness, particularly where WWE 2k15 is concerned.
Interestingly, or perhaps coincidentally, WWE has pulled almost all the CM Punk merchandise from Punk’s WWEShop.com Alumni page. Only four items remain for Punk, with the most expensive being a set of CM Punk wrist sleeves for $2.99. A few of the other remaining Punk pieces are redirecting to an “item not found” page.
As we originally noted, the discrepancy stems from WWE feeling CM Punk was in breach of contract when he quit the company this year, and therefore WWE feels they do not owe him anymore money. It should also be noted that Punk’s 22 page letter sent to WWE is not a lawsuit, it’s simply an attorney sent letter regarding what Punk feels are owed monies.
