Report: CM Punk Suffers Significant Injury At WWE Royal Rumble
The Royal Rumble closed with Cody Rhodes the victor. As a result, he will face Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 40.
He last eliminated CM Punk to win his consecutive Men’s Royal Rumble Match. While the ending came across well on TV, there seems to be an issue.
Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com mentioned Punk has suffered a significant injury that he will address on tonight’s RAW.
“His exact injury was unconfirmed by those in WWE past many confirming the injury and that as of right now the plan is to have him on the show from Tampa to address the nature of the injury,” said Meltzer.
“Within the WWE the speculation was a torn triceps but nobody close enough to the situation would confirm anything more than a significant injury to be addressed on the show.”
As of now, neither WWE or Punk have commented.
The Royal Rumble marked 10 years since he infamously walked away from WWE.
Several backstage issues led to his AEW release.
The loss of either would be a huge blow to WrestleMania and the rest of the WWE schedule.
So, if CM Punk did suffer a significant injury at the Royal Rumble, should he contemplate calling it a career.
