“CM Punk underwent knee surgery today to remove a piece of torn meniscus that had locked up his knee,” said Andrews’ colleague, WWE physician Dr. Chris Amann. “The surgery, performed by Dr. James Andrews, went smoothly and CM Punk is expected to make a full recovery.”
Just make Shield destroy Ryback before the match/during his entrance at TLC and have one of them climb the ladder, grab the title and give it to Punk. If this is a minor injury and Punk can compete at Royal Rumble, something like that can happen to make sure Punk vs Rock stays intact.
Phew, I'm so relieved to hear it seems to be the "best case scenario". I was literally horrified. Would have been a disaster for WWE, for all of us, and esp for Punk had he missed RR and WM. Thank God it doesn't seem to be too serious.
