Update on Why CM Punk Wasn’t Buried On Raw

Vince still hopes he will return…
- On Monday, WWE scrapped several RAW segments mentioning CM Punk, including a Bad News Barrett promo. Word is that Vince McMahon did not want to bad mouth of bury CM Punk on the show because he's still hopeful Punk will return. Punk makes a lot of money for the company in terms of the merchandise he sells, and still has star power. McMahon doesn't want to burn the bridge with Punk, especially by burying him in his hometown.
The general feeling is that Triple H doesn't feel the same about the matter, and some think that as he gains more power behind the scenes, Punk's leverage for a return on his own terms could start diminishing.
