WWE has released the following text message that was sent to them via Michael Moody, the son of William Moody (Paul Bearer). The release notes that the text has been release with Michael Moody's consent in reference to his Facebook post that the CM Punk/Paul Bearer segment that ended RAW was "not what I envisioned":

"Hey. I woke up in time to watch the tail end of the show. What you explained would happen happened. Which is fine. Just it was a little difficult to watch it play out. I put a message on Facebook last night saying that we approved it but it wasn't what I envisioned. That I didn't have anything to say. Well woke up this morning and that quote is being used all over 'media outlets.' For the record. I was fine w(ith) it. Was hard to watch but y'all are professionals and I trust."
