WWE Being Forced To Re Write CM Punk Out Of Movie Script
We noted before that WWE was facing an issue with CM Punk being tied to a lot of licensing and future projects. Word from someone working on WWE Studios' Flinstones movie that comes out in 2015 that the script is being re-written for another Superstar to replace Punk's character, likely Rey Mysterio. Rey has been added to the movie.
WWE is really trying to distance themselves from CM Punk and not use any Punk material, as seen with them him from WrestleMania video packages and other media. Regarding the 24 of Slam City that are completed, WWE couldn't take Punk's character out because they've been done for months but they will be downplaying his involvement.
The Camp WWE adult cartoon that is expected to hit the WWE Network this year will also likely be re-done now that Punk has left the company.
