WWE News: CM Punk Leaving WWE, and 5 Reasons a Chicago Screw Job Won't Happen

CM Punk's departure from WWE was made officially inevitable following a promo Monday where Punk declared that he would be leaving the WWE when his "contract expires" on July 17th at Money in the Bank. 

What looks to be Punk's final match will take place in his hometown of Chicago, Illinois.  The circumstances surrounding Punk's final match spark memories of the Montreal Screwjob, where WWE Hall of Famer Bret "The Hitman" Hart was booked to drop the WWE Championship to Shawn Michaels in his home country of Canada unbeknown to him.

WWE has emulated and re-emulated the infamous moment multiple times since it first happened in 1997, with one of those incarnations ironically involving CM Punk himself.  I find it hard to believe that WWE would once again rehash the now commonplace angle, as it pertains to CM Punk, given the circumstances of Punk's program with John Cena

A "Screwjob" angle with Punk would cause unnecessary confusion and booking woes leading up to a SummerSlam pay-per-view with a main event (possibly not involving Punk) that has reportedly been on the book for months now.  

Reasons against a screwjob angle far outweigh reasons for it, which at the moment I can think of none.
