Where is CM Punk?

A few weeks ago, something unusual happened: "The Voice of the Voiceless" lost his voice.

It had been a little more than 14 days since his defeat at the hands of The Undertaker at WrestleMania in a valiantly fought loss — hardly a trouncing by any means — that no one in the WWE Universe thought any less of Punk for, even though he had it coming. But the defeat seemed to have taken a profound toll on the former WWE Champion all the same, and in a way even losing his 434-day title reign to The Rock had. Seeming at first to struggle with his words, the man who claimed to turn the microphone into a lethal weapon simply closed his mouth after a few moments, hugged his friend Paul Heyman and walked away.

Since then, Punk has gone virtually radio silent. Apart from a few sightings at various major-league ballparks and one UFC event, nobody seems to have seen hide or hair of The Second City Saint since he abdicated his chosen pulpit and sulked away into the shadows. Paul Heyman has, for the time being, at least, shifted his focus to Brock Lesnar’s preparation to face Triple H at Extreme Rules. The WWE Universe, meanwhile, has been left to wonder what’s become of Punk and, more importantly, whether a WWE ring will ever see him again.

As to the former question, Punk’s Twitter account has proved a somewhat helpful source of information. The Second City Saint has been fairly active in self-imposed exile, tweeting images from his primo spots in the stands at the games he’s been attending. So he’s hardly sitting at home washing his tights; at least it’s confirmation that CM Punk is somewhere out there in the world. Still, unless you’re planning on staking out various stadiums in the greater Chicago area (or unless you’re Chael Sonnen), odds of rubbing shoulders with The Straight Edge Superstar appear remarkably slim.

As for whether he’s returning to the ring, that’s where the matter gets hairier …
