CM Punk Reportedly Taking Time Off After WrestleMania 29, Why WWE Wants Him Rested Up
By Marc Middleton

- As noted, CM Punk has been pulled from the rest of the live events leading up to WrestleMania 29 so he can heal up and be fresh for the big match against The Undertaker. Punk is still scheduled for all RAW TV shows and is still advertised for WWE's European tour the week after WrestleMania.

However, word now is that Punk may not be working most live events here in the United States once WrestleMania is over, leaving John Cena to once again be the top draw for RAW live events. Punk not working live events after WrestleMania is expected to be for the short term.

With Punk taking time off, there's a feeling that he has helped carry the company for a while now and WWE needs to protect their investment.
