CM Punk’s Twitter message Monday concerning his pending departure from WWE was copied verbatim from a post he made in June 2005 on his LiveJournal account (available here) regarding what was to have been his final match for Ring of Honor.
Days before ROH’s Death before Dishonor III event, Punk wrote: “I knew I was gone at the beginning of the year. I just woke up one day and knew. That’s the way I work a lot of the time. I think it’s creepy too, but it’s really helpful. I honestly knew i’d be history by June. Come say goodbye on Saturday, I promise to go out with a bang. Trust me. XxX”
Punk defeated Austin Aries to win the ROH World Championship and remained with the organization for an additional two months.
Fast forward to Monday, Punk wrote on Twitter regarding his pending departure from WWE: “I knew I was gone at the beginning of the year. I just woke up one day and I knew. That’s the way I work a lot of the time. I think it’s creepy too, but it’s really helpful. I knew I’d be history by July. Come say goodbye on July 17th. I promise to go out with a bang. Trust me. XxX”
