In recent reports it states that we could possibly be seeing a little less of CMPunk in the coming weeks before WrestleMania. He possibly could be taking time off to rest up as much as possible for his match against The Undertaker.
The self-proclaimed “Best In The World” has a few wounds to rest up as much as he can before the big match and with this lighter schedule can do so. After “Mania” he will take more time off to further nurse his surgically repaired knee and a more recent arm injury that he hurt against a match with Kane a few weeks ago.
With Punk taking some time off will make way for other superstars to take the spotlight again. He has pretty much been the go to guy (like John Cena has been of past) for all of 2012. So this time off I think is well deserved.
