CM Punk Provides Update On Return Timetable Following Triceps Injury


CM Punk suffered a triceps tear at last month’s WWE Royal Rumble 2024 pay-per-view event. The injury has shelved Punk for six to nine months.

During an interview at UFC 298, Punk shared an update on his return timetable. He said,

“You know, fingers crossed, yeah, I was going to headline WrestleMania. Obviously, now I’m not. But, you know, it’s sports. It’s what happens to athletes. Mentally, I think it’s harder because the physical pain is whatever. But I look at it just like a bump in the road. This is an occupational hazard. It happens and I’ll be back bigger and better.”

He continued, “I’m a clumsy idiot. I tore my left triceps about two years ago, so the right one was jealous. I’m like an old cobbler. 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 six to eight 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. The sooner I do that, the better I’ll be when I come back.”

Punk was supposed to challenge Seth Rollins for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania 40. However, his unfortunate injury ruled him out of the flagship event, forcing WWE to change plans on the Road To WrestleMania.
