Last updated

In a shocking turn of events, CM Punk, one of the most celebrated figures in professional wrestling, has sustained a significant injury, sidelining him for an estimated 4-6 months.

This development comes after Punk’s participation in the 2024 WWE Royal Rumble pay-per-view event, where he was a key competitor.

WWE News: The Injury at Royal Rumble

During the high-octane men’s Royal Rumble match, a critical moment saw Punk suffer an injury. The exact nature of the injury remains unconfirmed by WWE officials.

PWInsider has now however confirmed that Punk will be appearing on WWE RAW tonight to reveal the injury and he will be heading for surgery shortly after:

“The belief among sources we have spoken with is that post-surgery, Punk would likely┬áneed in the area of 4-6 months of recovery and physical therapy.

“If correct, that would obviously put him out of Wrestlemania as a wrestler and if he gets the surgery within the next week, it likely means he wouldn’t be able to return to the ring until this summer in a best-case scenario.”

Punk’s injury has significant implications for the upcoming WrestleMania 40. He was expected to challenge Seth Rollins for the WWE World Title at this marquee event.
