CM Punk has suffered a hip injury and reportedly will out of action for three months.
According to pwinsider.com, the WWE creative team was told that Punk will be unable to wrestle for three months because of the injury, but that they should come up with ideas for him to be on TV in a non-wrestling role.
The injury reportedly occurred during the seven-on-seven elimination match at the Bragging Rights pay-per-view on Oct. 24 when Punk took a bump on a DDT from Edge.
This is a tough break because Punk’s character has been reinvigorated since his recent move from Smackdown to Raw. Punk appeared to be on the verge of beginning a highly anticipated program with U.S. champion Daniel Bryan.
Punk has been entertaining when given opportunities to sit in on commentary as of late, so perhaps that would be a way to keep him on TV. Another thought would be to have him host a weekly interview segment on Raw.
