WWE CHAMPION CM PUNK HAS EMERGENCY KNEE SURGERY!

WWE CHAMPION CM PUNK HAS EMERGENCY KNEE SURGERY!
With TLC now less than two weeks away, the WWE needs its top champion, CM Punk, in fighting-fit condition. According to WWE.com, however, Punk is currently undergoing emergency knee surgery after consulting with Dr. James Andrews. The extent of the injury and how it was suffered hasn’t yet been released, but WWE.com is blaming the injury on Ryback putting Punk through a table last night on Raw. Punk reportedly took a late-night flight to Pensacola, Fla., to confer with Andrews. WWE.com has updated its previous report with regards to Punk’s emergency knee surgery and is now reporting that Andrews has completed a scope of Punk’s knee to repair torn cartilage. There still has been no recovery timetable released, but the fact that Punk underwent a fairly routine, minimally-invasive surgery should bode well for his prospects of competing at Royal Rumble at the very least. With that said, the recovery time varies and it’s possible that the WWE could be without Punk at TLC. According to the Cleveland Clinic, it could take between one and two months to return to an active lifestyle following arthroscopic knee surgery, and Punk would obviously fall under that category. That makes it seem unlikely that he’ll be ready for TLC, but Royal Rumble is very much in the discussion. With that said, Punk can’t yet be ruled out for TLC either. More should come to light over the next few days, but the best course of action will likely be for Punk to rest until TLC and then reevaluate from there.
