Sadly, it appears the WWE is still not entirely behind its current champion.

As you may or may not know, Punk is slated to be take be a guest on AMC's Talking Dead this Sunday night. Punk alleges that the WWE was supposed to promote the appearance during Survivor Series and failed to do so.

"The Second City Savior" is also slated to be the Grand Marshal for Chicago's Thanksgiving Day parade on Thursday. These are obviously two big events for Punk, and one would think the company would embrace his popularity.

However, according to Punk that isn't the case, on Tuesday morning Punk took to Twitter with the following:



Somehow, Punk must have missed WWE.com's article on his Grand Marshal status.

Although, he nailed the Talking Dead mention, as most people had no clue about this until he announced it. It should be noted, that Punk teased the booking on Colt Cabana's "Art of Wrestling" podcast a few weeks ago. However, he never mentioned what show it was going to be.

Overall, Punk's WWE tenure has had its ups and downs. Punk even made mention of his volatile relationship with management during an interview for his DVD CM Punk: Best in the World. Even though some of what Punk says is strictly a work, there is some truth behind his character's angst.

Let's face it, when Edge was on the WWE roster they constantly promoted his outside TV appearances. Overall, John Cena's appearances are documented like no other. Don't get me wrong, I get that Cena is ultimately the face of the company. Yet, there is something to be said for the lack of promotion for the company's current champ.

Keep in mind, the WWE is known for wanting to have its hands in all of its stars' outside business. For the most part, it makes wrestlers seek company approval before the outside deal is finalized. Even though most stars comply with this"rule," others like Kelly Kelly have pushed back. Which allegedly was the reason behind her release.

As we all know, wrestling will only be a small part of Punk's life. So, I feel he should take advantage of his fame while he can. In the end, Punk has seemingly controlled his own fate since day one and I doubt that will ever change.
