-- After undergoing immediate knee surgery Tuesday and being released from the hospital late in the evening, WWE Champion CM Punk was telling people close to him that he felt excellent as we reported earlier here on the website. Punk contacted WWE officials and informed them he would be able to compete against Ryback at TLC: Tables, Ladders and Chairs. Management, however, felt otherwise, stating it would be best if he did not compete at the pay-per-view event. They wanted him to bow out of the show and rest as to not jeopardize bigger, upcoming matches.
Punk will continue to appear on WWE programming while he heals.
-- Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson will be chatting with fans Sunday afternoon via Twitter. "Inspiration, information & a good dirty joke. Been too long.. you & me LIVE! SUNDAY 1pm EST," he announced Saturday.
