CM Punk faced setback due to a triceps injury following an unfortunate incident at the Royal Rumble. However, his unwavering determination to return saw him commit to a rigorous rehabilitation regimen. It’s clearly working out for him as he his in-ring return timeline has been revealed.

While CM Punk hasn’t been able to compete inside the squared circle, he has been a major part of WWE programming over the past several months, especially thanks to his bitter feud with Drew McIntyre.

While speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer talked about CM Punk’s recovery timeline and when he is expected to make his in-ring return. Meltzer noted that Punk had surgery in January and will be back by September, adding that he will return fairly soon.

“Punk’s not that far from being back most likely. If he had his surgery at the end of January, you’re looking at the end of July, August, maybe September. It’s not that far away anymore. He might make SummerSlam. And if he can make SummerSlam, Punk and Drew for the title, that makes a lot of sense. Even if he can’t, you can do it a month after. Punk will be back fairly soon, it’s not as far away as sometimes you think because of that surgery.”


Drew McIntyre even labeled CM Punk fans as stupid after this week’s episode of Monday Night RAW. Whoever Punk returns, fans know they will be in for a treat as Punk and McIntyre will finally face each other, which is something they have been wanting for a long time now.
