According to sources, CM Punk confided to people close to him that he was unhappy with WWE's handling of the AJ Lee-Michelle Beadle incident.
The day after the incident, he stated on Twitter: "It's difficult to always try to do business the proper way with a company that refuses to practice the same standards."
Despite this friction, those close to him don't expect him to bolt from the promotion, nor would company officials want him to. Punk has always had an attitude of "I don't care if I get fired as I don't need to be here." It's a situation where Punk thinks WWE needs him more than he needs them.
