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.
