Source: PWInsider EliteRegarding the story of CM Punk possibly suffering a concussion at the Royal Rumble, he did pass an ImPACT concussion test on the Monday before he walked out of the company. However, Punk did get banged up in the 30-man Royal Rumble match.
During a WWE creative meeting this past weekend, the writers were told that Punk went home because he "got his bell rung" in the Rumble match.
There's a belief within the company, possibly passed down from Triple H and/or Vince McMahon, that Punk walked out simply because he was banged up as opposed to everything else like creative frustration, the WrestleMania XXX match with Triple H and everything else that's been reported.
Nobody knows what kind of talks Punk and Vince have had since last Monday but there is a feeling within WWE that Vince may be under the impression Punk left because he got hurt.
