Below are a couple of top WWE news stories of the day, featuring CM Punk and Shayna Baszler.

• CM Punk, who has been out of in-ring action since January due to a triceps injury, has remained a prominent figure on WWE television and active on social media. His unexpected appearance at Clash At The Castle has fueled speculation about his return to the ring, and now his in-ring status for Money In The Bank has been disclosed.

At the Clash At The Castle Premium Live Event, CM Punk made a dramatic return by interfering in the main event, costing Drew McIntyre the World Heavyweight Championship match against Damian Priest. Following this impactful appearance, Punk announced he would miss the June 17th edition of RAW to undergo a medical evaluation.

According to WrestleVotes, the latest RAW roster sheet indicates that CM Punk’s official return date is scheduled for the end of July. Sources report that Punk is unlikely to be cleared for action by the Money In The Bank event on July 6th, but he is expected to be ready for SummerSlam on August 3rd.

“As of last week’s RAW roster sheet, CM Punk’s official return date was set for the end of July. I’m told he likely won’t be cleared for action by MITB on 7/6, but he should be ready for SummerSlam on 8/3,” WrestleVotes reported.

This timeline sets the stage for a highly anticipated return at one of WWE’s biggest events of the summer. Fans can expect Punk to be fully prepared to make a significant impact at SummerSlam, marking his official comeback to in-ring competition.

• WWE Clash At The Castle has been hailed as one of the most thrilling and successful events in the Paul “Triple H” Levesque era. The show set a record-breaking gate, and fans in Scotland were treated to an electrifying experience. However, the event also sparked discussions about several notable botches involving the ropes.

One of the most talked-about incidents involved Jade Cargill, who attempted a high-flying move by jumping through the ropes but failed to execute it properly. Another mishap occurred during the main event when Damian Priest tried to perform a dive over the ropes but also botched the attempt.

These incidents led to speculation and criticism, with some detractors attributing the botches to issues with the ropes. However, WWE superstar Shayna Baszler, who was in the match where one of the botches occurred, took to social media to address the controversy.

Baszler used her X account to highlight her partner Zoey Stark’s flawless execution of three springboard moves during the same event. By doing so, she subtly suggested that the mistakes made by Cargill and Priest were due to their own errors, not any problem with the ropes.

“‘Ropes issue’ but @ZoeyStarkWWE nails 3 perfect springboards. MVP status,” Baszler posted, clearly implying that Stark’s successful maneuvers debunked the rope issue claims.

Despite the botches, Clash At The Castle remains a highlight of WWE’s calendar, showcasing both the excitement and unpredictability of live wrestling. Shayna Baszler’s defense of the event underscores the high level of skill required to perform in the ring, regardless of the occasional mishap.
