The anticipation for WrestleMania 40 reached new heights with the recent announcement regarding CM Punk’s involvement. During the March 18 episode of RAW, a compelling video package highlighting ‘The Best In The World’ aired, primarily aimed at promoting Punk’s upcoming appearance on the March 25 episode of RAW, set to take place in his hometown of Chicago, Illinois.

In the midst of the package, Punk took a moment to address his eagerly awaiting fans, confirming his presence at WrestleMania 40. Asserting that a WrestleMania held in Philadelphia would be incomplete without his attendance, Punk declared his intention to be there, even if he weren’t formally invited.

Punk’s return to the spotlight comes after a hiatus from action following his participation in the 2024 Men’s Royal Rumble match, where he suffered a torn triceps. As of now, the timeline for Punk’s return to in-ring competition remains uncertain.

Ringside News pledges to keep fans updated as more matches and segments are unveiled for the March 25 episode of RAW. In the meantime, fans are encouraged to explore the events section for a preview of the action-packed card for both nights of WrestleMania 40. Stay tuned for further developments as the excitement continues to build towards this monumental event.
