CM Punk Quits WWE: Pulled From Upcoming Events
WWE star CM Punk has effectively quit WWE after walking out of RAW this week. He has been pulled from all upcoming events, though is still listed for the Elimination Chamber. He was not at the SmackDown tapings either.
Punk’s Tweet on Monday now makes a lot more sense. He wrote:
“Thanks for all the support. Keep being you guys, it’s pretty cool.”
The former WWE Champ revealed in an interview with Ariel Helwani last week that his contract expires in July, and “everything is up in the air”. His walk out suggests that he simply isn’t happy and will not be re-signing with the company. It’s also believed that he has a lot of nagging injuries and has been working in pain for months.
Neither Punk or WWE have officially acknowledged the departure. Technically as of now he is breaching his contract.
Jim Ross Says Bryan Isn’t Being Buried
Jim Ross explained in his JRSBARBQ.com blog that regardless of the stroyline, Daniel Bryan isn’t being buried:
Enjoyed how RAW started and for all the Daniel Bryan conspiracy theorists that were very vocal Sunday night, Bryan’s inclusion in segment one and in the last segment of RAW should provide some anxiety relief for those thinking that no one in a decision making position is aware that Daniel Bryan is ‘over.’
Trust me, if WWE wanted to bury Bryan he would not have been in both the opening and closing segments of Monday Night RAW. I think that DB fans will be happy when this particular journey reaches its destination no matter how dysfunctional it may seem to be.

Death of Jimmy Snuka’s Girlfriend To Be Reinvestigated
The infamous 1983 death of Jimmy Snuka’s girlfriend Nancy Argentino is to be reinvestigated by grand jury. The case has remained open for decades and prime suspect Snuka was never charged due to a lack of evidence.
Snuka claims Argentino slipped and hit her head after returning from a bathroom break while driving him to a TV taping in Allentown. She later died of head injuries after carrying on to the hotel.
Others have suggested that the couple had a violent argument – either at the side of the road or at the hotel room – and Snuka is responsible for her death. Her family have always believed Sunka was involved.
Lehigh County District Attorney James B. Martin has directed that evidence in the 1983 death of Nancy L. Argentino of New York be presented to the Seventh Investigating Grand Jury.
Argentino, 23, of Brooklyn, N.Y., died on May 11, 1983, in Allentown.
District Attorney Martin has issued the following statement regarding the death:
“Several months ago, I was contacted by the surviving sisters of Nancy L. Argentino, who died under unusual circumstances. I directed Chief Deputy District Attorney Charles F. Gallagher III to conduct a preliminary review of the investigative file and any and all evidence that was gathered over the past 30 years by the lead Detective, former Whitehall Township Detective and now Lehigh County Detective Gerald Procanyn, and others.
“Chief Deputy District Attorney Gallagher has recommended that the District Attorney’s Office utilize the power and resources of the current Investigating Grand Jury in this matter.
Accordingly, I directed that the circumstances surrounding the death of Nancy L. Argentino, and all evidence related thereto, be presented to the Seventh Investigating Grand Jury, which is currently empanelled.
“Grand Jury proceedings are a time-consuming process, and it will take months before the Grand Jury concludes its work on this case.
“Under the Investigating Grand Jury Act, 42 Pa.C.S.A. §4541 et seq., the proceedings of the Grand Jury are secret and may not be disclosed. Accordingly, I will have no further comment on this matter until the Investigating Grand Jury concludes its work.”
