CM Punk’s return to WWE has been the talk of the town since last month’s shocking comeback in his hometown of Chicago. WWE is ensuring that fans are well-informed about when they can catch the Second City Savior in action.
In the short time since his return, CM Punk has been a prominent figure on WWE programming, making appearances on Raw, SmackDown, and NXT before ultimately aligning himself exclusively with the Raw brand.
Wrestling fans won’t have to wait long to witness CM Punk’s return to the squared circle. In his first WWE match since 2014, Punk is set to take on Dominik Mysterio at the December 26 Live Event in the iconic Madison Square Garden. Additionally, fans can catch this exciting matchup once more at the event on December 30th in Inglewood, California.
CM Punk himself took to social media to provide a schedule of his upcoming WWE appearances. Following these live events, Punk will grace the January 8th episode of Monday Night Raw, taking place in Portland, Oregon. His subsequent appearance is scheduled for the January 22nd show in New Orleans, Louisiana. This particular event will serve as the go-home Raw before the highly anticipated Royal Rumble Premium Live Event, where Punk will participate in the Men’s Royal Rumble match.
As favorite to win the Men’s Royal Rumble match next month, CM Punk is poised for a potential clash with the reigning WWE World Heavyweight Champion, Seth ‘Freakin’ Rollins. The tension between the two has been mounting ever since Punk’s return, and Rollins recently explained his grievances with Punk’s comeback. Wrestling fans are in for an exciting ride in the coming weeks.
