Below are some top WWE news stories of the day, involving CM Punk and Drew McIntyre.

• CM Punk appeared on this week’s RAW in the final segment, delivering a brief promo about personal growth and returning for unfinished business.

Originally, the plan was for a longer promo, but due to the Randy Orton vs. Dominik Mysterio match going on longer than expected, Punk’s time was cut short, a common occurrence in live television, according to PWInsider.

Contrary to speculation, there were no plans for Punk to criticize AEW or Tony Khan during his promo.

• Drew McIntyre experienced frustration earlier in the year with WWE due to creative issues and his contract, which runs until 2024. His discontent resurfaced after losing the Men’s WarGames Match, leading to a visibly upset reaction.

McIntyre stormed out of the ring, slammed the locker room door, and left the arena genuinely upset, not as part of a storyline.

This frustration continued backstage but seemed to dissipate by the time of Monday’s RAW. McIntyre had a segment with Seth Rollins, where he sought a World Heavyweight Title shot, but Rollins granted it to Jey Uso. McIntyre headbutted Rollins, and later, a backstage segment with Sami Zayn set up a match for next week’s RAW.

During the segment with Rollins, McIntyre was accidentally cut the hard way, likely from contact with the title belt, but he was reportedly in good spirits before the show.
