An update on CM Punk reveals unfortunate news regarding his recent injury. The Second City Saint sustained an arm injury during the Royal Rumble event, sidelining him from action for the foreseeable future, likely extending through WrestleMania 40.

Despite initial speculation suggesting a possible appearance at this Saturday’s Elimination Chamber premium live event in Australia, a recent report has debunked such rumors.

According to PWInsider, CM Punk did not accompany WWE to Australia and remains in the United States. While it’s presumed that he is undergoing rehabilitation for his injury, WWE has not incorporated him into their plans for the Elimination Chamber event.

Previously, there were rumors circulating that Punk was slated to emerge victorious in the Elimination Chamber matchup and subsequently challenge Seth Rollins for the heavyweight championship at WrestleMania 40. However, with his current injury status and absence from the Australian event, those plans seem to have been put on hold.


Fans eagerly await updates on CM Punk’s recovery and future involvement in WWE programming, as his presence is sorely missed in the ring. Until then, the WWE Universe will continue to speculate on when they might see the return of this iconic superstar to the squared circle.

Speaking of Elimination Chamber, Ringside News will have complete play-by-play coverage of the event, and any late breaking news, rumors and spoilers regarding the show.
