CM Punk is on the shelf in WWE and while his fans might be disappointed, Drew McIntyre couldn’t be happier.
CM Punk tore his triceps in the Royal Rumble as he finished as runner-up to Cody Rhodes in the 30-man match. Despite the loss, many expected Punk to end up in a WrestleMania main event regardless, likely challenging Seth Rollins for the World Heavyweight Championship but that match is now off.
On the Raw following the Rumble, Punk revealed his diagnosis and one star who was thrilled to see Punk missing out on his dream of headlining WrestleMania was Drew McIntyre. McIntyre was one WWE star apparently not thrilled with Punk’s return to WWE and let out all his frustrations on the injured CM Punk by brutally attacking him.
