CM Punk Medically Cleared to Defend WWE Championship on January 7th RAW
Thank goodness! WWE.com is reporting some “breaking news” today stating that their sources indicate that WWE Champion CM Punk is medically cleared to compete on this coming Monday’s RAW in a TLC match against Ryback for the WWE Championship.
WWE.com sources indicate that The Straight Edge Superstar has been medically cleared for in-ring competition several weeks after his undergoing knee surgery. The decision, if confirmed, returns Punk to action effective immediately, meaning he will defend his championship as scheduled in a Tables, Ladders & Chairs Match against Ryback.
I say “thank goodness!” because who really wants to see Ryback vs. Paul Heyman? However, this is WWE we’re talking about here and you know how they are. There’s still a 50% chance we’ll end up with the Ryback/Heyman match anyway.
Our sources also indicate that a final decision on the champion’s status will be presented to the WWE Universe on WWE Main Event tonight at 8/7 CT on ION Television.
Either way, I won’t take anything WWE says as a “final decision” until the match actually happens.
