– At this time, CM Punk is able to walk on his own, but word is that they may do the Bret Hart wheelchair gimmick from 1997. In that angle, Hart had surgery and was being pushed around in a wheel chair.
– The CM Punk vs. Ryback match that was scheduled for TLC is still expected to take place on a RAW telivision. Punk is said to be ready for the New Year’s Eve RAW, which will be taped a few days earlier. But there are concerns over when to air it, due to ratings. The New Year’s Eve show is expected to do a bad rating, while the January 7th show will go head to head with the BCS championship game. They also fear that the January 14th RAW will be too close to the Royal Rumble PPV, so at this time it is penciled in, but not for a specific date.
