-- There are a couple of interesting dates coming up as it relates to the current CM Punk situation with WWE. Punk is scheduled to appear on Comedy Central's "@Midnight" program on February 12th. It will be interesting to see how the topic of his WWE status is handled on his first major post-WWE appearance.
Additionally, WWE is scheduled to run Punk's hometown of Chicago on March 3rd. It will again be interesting to see how the Punk situation is handled at that show, as well as how his hometown fans react to the first show in the city without him appearing.
Finally, in a sign that WWE has decided to not yet publicly acknowledge what is going on with Punk, "The Best In The World" came in at number nine on the latest WWE Power Rankings, which were released on February 1st.
