" As of Tuesday, June 28, WWE and CM Punk have reached an agreement that Punk will fulfill his non-televised live event obligations for the remainder of his contract, through July 17. Furthermore, both sides have mutually agreed not to disparage one another."

Apparently CM Punks contract doesn't actually officially run out until September.

So erm. Have fun with this storyline being just as awful as all the others.

I heard first week of July, but he agreed to go until MITB

Also as i guessed it seemingly was an improvised speech with Punk knowing they would cut him off if he went too far. which seemingly bringing an active charity thinger into disrepute was.

edit: This is from a source that in my experience pretty much always turns out to be accurate, talking of the whole thing

Sources report that CM Punk's entire promo at the end of RAW this week was improvised by Punk and not scripted. Nobody in the back knew what Punk was going to say until he said it live on RAW.

WWE officials told Punk to go out and say in his own words why he was leaving the company, why he wanted the WWE Title and why he wanted to leave with it in his possession. There was a discussion that when officials felt Punk was going too far, they would pull the plug on the segment and cut his mic.

It's said that Punk was upset months ago when Triple H came back to feud with The Undertaker and while some of his comments on RAW towards Vince McMahon were well thought out to appear not as a shoot to the average viewer, most believe that Punk's comments towards Triple H and John Laurinaitis were strictly a shoot.

Word also is that Punk had some notes for his speech jotted down on his wrist tape.

As far as his contract status, Punk's deal apparently expires the second week of July but he signed an extension to work through Money in the Bank. Still with last night's new storyline development, sources maintain that Punk is leaving at Money in the Bank.

Punk promo was amazing, dont think theres been anything better since Cane Dewey!
It makes all the TNA "shoots" seem scripted and bitter, fantastic.

I read the Raw spoilers for next week and tbh im a bit annoyed as it ruins the MITB championship match :(

I listened to that Orton interview last night, he's brilliant. Really funny guy. Shame he isn't like that on TV or i'd be a big fan. He's not very PG though.

it was a bit, but it was funny too. plus he told everyone he shat all over his own floor, so at least he was able to make fun of himself as well.
