CM Punk hints at retirement date on Twitter

Steve Wright Jr.

CM Punk always said he would retire sooner than we all think. Now he's given out a potential date on his Twitter account and he wasn't lying.

Current WWE Champion CM Punk has been saying it for a while now: "I'm going to retire sooner than you all think."

If recent tweets were any indication, we've got roughly two years left to enjoy "The Best in the World."

That's what "The Straight Edge Superstar" hinted at in a recent tweet when he made the following remark:

With his 1.3 million followers hanging on his every word and eager to jump on even the slightest clue, naturally the outcry was immediate. And he responded to it not by squashing the rumor but by fueling its fire:

Seeing as most wrestling retirements are complete and utter bullshit, it's safe to take this talk with a grain of salt. But as many of you are likely to point out, we're talking about a man who has frequently made it clear he doesn't want to be another Ric Flair or Mick Foley.

When it's time to go, it's time to go.

That doesn't mean he's 100-percent going to stick to his word, of course, but if there's a pro wrestler who is the least likely to want to work you and be honest on his Twitter, it's Punk.
