No, he will still wrestle Rock. The surgery is a minor knee surgery and with rest from house shows and use of physical therapy he can be healthy in 2-4 weeks easily, especially given his record of working through older injuries crazily well.
Again no, it was not RyBack. He is quite a safe worker, as local jobbers have said in interviews. Meniscus tears can be partial tears or abrasions before they become full tears and cause knee locking. Punk was limping for a week or so and was showing visible knee issues before this. Obviously this was an injury he was working through, whatever way he landed and twisted his knee(if even from the RyBack spot at all) made it a full tear. Shit happens, it was a timebomb really, better he miss TLC against RyBack than RR against Rock. He will still get the biggest match of his career, he is still champion. All is fine.
