CM Punk Reveals His WrestleMania 40 Plan

CM Punk Says He Main Evented WrestleMania WrestleFeed App

CM Punk tore his triceps during the 2024 Men’s Royal Rumble match, where he was the last man eliminated.

During an interview with TNT Sports, Punk revealed how long he’ll be out of action.

“Yeah, well, see, I’m a clumsy idiot. I tore my left tricep about two years ago, so the right one was jealous. I’m like an old car. I’m like a ’72 Nova, you know what I mean? We have to change some parts every now and again.

So, once we fix up all the parts, the engine’s still strong. We’ll still be good to go. We’re thinking maybe 6-8 months, but I’m not really in a rush to get back to compete.

I’m in a rush to get healthy. I’m in a rush to get better. And the sooner I do that, the better I’ll be when I come back.”

This means Punk will either return in time for SummerSlam 2024 or shortly after it.

When asked about what his plans were for WrestleMania 40, Punk revealed that he was supposed to ‘finish what he started’, which is main event the Show of Shows:

“Yeah, I was gonna headline WrestleMania (against Seth Rollins for the World Heavyweight Championship). Obviously, now I’m not. But, you know, it’s sports. It’s what happens to athletes, you know.

Like, mentally, I think it’s harder. The physical pain is whatever, but I look at it just like a bump in the road, you know. This is an occupational hazard, it happens, and I’ll be back bigger and better.”

Speaking of Punk, he appeared at last night’s UFC 298 PPV, along with Montez Ford & Bianca Belair, and got heavily booed. Tap here to read the results and watch the knockout for a title change in the main event.
