CM Punk has been a huge draw after returning to WWE at Survivor Series last month and he has become progressively a bigger deal with every passing day, as fans continue to get more and more excited when they see him. He is obviously a huge draw, which is why it comes as no surprise he replaced a top WWE Superstar on the Monday Night RAW banner.

The Second City Saint has appeared on Monday Night RAW, Friday Night SmackDown, and NXT Deadline after he returned to the company last month. It has become clear that Punk is simply a major draw for the company and fans are always happy to see him.

Jey Uso made his return during WWE Payback after he ‘quit Smackdown’, much to the delight of fans. He then made his way to Monday Night RAW and has since been booked very well in terms of his presentation on the brand. In fact, he used to be heavily featured on the RAW banner as well as on posters.

However, if one looks at WWE’s official website now – one will find that CM Punk has ended up replacing Jey Uso for the Monday Night RAW banner. This isn’t exactly surprising considering just how significant CM Punk has already become in WWE.


Jey Uso isn’t the only WWE Superstar who got replaced on a banner as Charlotte Flair was replaced by Randy Orton as well, following her unfortunate injury. Punk also unveiled his ring gear for his first match in WWE in almost a decade, so we’ll have to see how his matches against Dominik Mysterio turn out.
