Okay, before everyone flips out and starts writing hate comments, hear me out.
CM Punk reportedly has been feeling "burnout with being on the road for years and unhappiness with his position in the company over the last year."
Everyone needs a break once in a while, and with WWE on the road the majority of the year, it's hard to find that break.
Punk even had to work and travel when he was injured. During his injury he took up a part-time announcing bit.
Punk hasn't had much time away from WWE, and this problem seems like it has an easy answer: Give Punk a break!
He also commented on his status and position in WWE. He is a three-time world champion, former ECW Champion, former World Tag Team Champion and a former Intercontinental Champion. Punk won Money in the Bank two years in a row at WrestleMania in 2008 and 2009.
He won three Slammy Awards and is considered one of WWE's top heels.
He is one helluva performer in the ring and on the mic.
If Punk did leave WWE, would he be better off in TNA?
Many superstars started in WWE but made a name for themselves in TNA. Perfect examples are Mr. Anderson, "The Pope" D'Angelo Dinero and Matt Morgan.
TNA allows its performers to be themselves and lets them work to the best of their abilities. It doesn't slap on handcuffs and tell its workers what to do and how to do it. It gives them breathing space.
Punk said he is burnt out?
TNA has a perfect schedule. Don't believe me?
Mickie James is able to wrestle and maintain her career in country music. Part of the reason why Kurt Angle stays in TNA is because of the easier schedule.
TNA tapings are at most three times a week, which frees up three weeks for the wrestlers to do whatever they want outside of wrestling. Whether it's sing country music or recover from past shows or even play basketball with your kids, they have the time.
Another factor is where the tapings occur: the iMPACT! Zone in Orlando, Florida. TNA spends the majority of its shows in the iMPACT! Zone and is on the road way less than WWE.
Think of the dream matches CM Punk could have in TNA.
CM Punk vs. AJ Styles
CM Punk vs. Samoa Joe
CM Punk vs. Daniels
CM Punk vs. Kurt Angle
CM Punk vs. Kazarian
The possibilities are endless.
TNA would benefit Punk with its:
1. Freedom to be himself and given a chance
2. Light schedule
3. Less travel
Thank you for reading, and now fire away with the comments.
