CM Punk Injuries
There has been a lot of buzz about the CM Punk injury that occurred during the AEW World Championship last month. The injury required immediate surgery and CM Punk will be out of action for a long time. He will most likely miss the upcoming Forbidden Door pay-per-view.
CM Punk’s injury at San Diego Comic Con
After breaking his foot at the San Diego Comic Con, CM Punk has been on the sidelines. Since then, he has not wrestled since June’s edition of Dynamite. His injury required surgery. He is now undergoing rehabilitation in order to learn how to walk again. His return date is unclear, but he should be back before the end of the year. He may not be able to compete in a few months.
During the AEW press roundtable interview session, Punk revealed that he’s not working due to the injury. He said that he’s still learning how to walk, and he has no timeline for his return to in-ring action. The injury was sustained on June 3 during an AEW Rampage episode, five nights after he won the AEW World Championship. Since then, Jon Moxley has become interim champion.
CM Punk underwent successful lower leg surgery on Wednesday. The AEW World Champion revealed the news during his Dynamite show. While the exact diagnosis is still unknown, he is expected to be back in action before the end of the year. Previously, reports had suggested the star had broken a bone in his foot.
However, CM Punk’s injury is more serious than what was initially believed. His foot will require surgery before the end of the year. This would have put him out for about a month. Regardless, Punk’s injury was a major setback for the WWE, and it was clear Tony Khan made the right decision. The interim title will now go to someone who hasn’t beaten Punk yet.
Return to AEW
CM Punk’s return to AEW is highly anticipated, but the timing of his return is still uncertain. He’s rumored to be unhappy with the company and even threatened to skip Dynamite last week. However, it’s unlikely that he’ll quit the company. Although he has made overtures to WWE, he has not yet decided if he’ll return to AEW.
After winning the AEW World Championship at Double or Nothing in May, CM Punk announced he was on injury leave. In addition, the company announced Jon Moxley as interim world champion. However, CM Punk returned to the company last week. In a heated confrontation with Moxley, he confronted the challenger. Afterwards, Jim Ross revealed that Punk is still recovering from his injury.
Impact on AEW’s roster
CM Punk’s long-awaited return to professional wrestling was overshadowed by the news of his injury. Punk, who was beaten by Adam Hangman Page at Forbidden Door, was seen being helped by two staff members backstage after the match. The two men examine his foot, which is showing signs of pain. Punk is expected to be out for several weeks, but he did not provide an exact time frame for his recovery.
The recent injury crisis has hit AEW hard. It was a major blow to the company when CM Punk underwent surgery for a leg injury. It was a relief when AEW hired Jon Moxley to replace Punk, but it has since been hit by a series of injuries. Punk’s injury meant that the Undisputed Elite, who were a part of a major storyline with the Elite Hung Bucks, were unable to compete. Meanwhile, Jamie Hayter broke his nose during a Battle of the Belts match.
CM Punk’s legacy
CM Punk’s injury has been a topic of conversation in the wrestling world for quite some time. During his live ring appearance tonight, he appeared to be in obvious pain. He hinted at having broken his foot, which will require surgery. However, he promised to return stronger and faster than ever before. The injury has left some fans wondering what Punk’s legacy will be.
CM Punk’s injury has left him out of action for at least the next two AEW shows. In his AEW debut 10 months ago, the former UFC star made his return to professional wrestling after an absence of seven years. Despite being out of action for a few weeks, he managed to hold on to the World Championship. He won it from Hangman Adam Page at AEW’s “Double or Nothing” pay-per-view on May 29.
