We knew CM Punk would work his first WWE matches since the 2014 Royal Rumble next week on WWE’s Holiday Tour, facing Dominik Mysterio at house shows in Manhattan’s Madison Square Garden on Dec. 26 and Southern California’s Kia Forum on Dec. 30. And of course he’s already declared for the 2024 Royal Rumble... but what’s the rest of his upcoming schedule like?
Calendar Man Punk has answers us in his Instagram Story...
After paying off his long-running feud with Dirty Dom next week, Punk will skip the Day 1 episode of Raw. But he’ll be back on television the following Monday (Jan. 8) in Portland, Oregon. Then he takes another Monday off (perhaps he’ll be hanging with his new best bud Shawn Michaels down in Orlando) before returning for the Rumble go home episode on Jan. 22 in New Orleans.
Feels part-timer-y at this point, which isn’t terribly surprising as he works himself back into the fold while WWE maintains his “special attraction” status. We’ll see how his schedule looks on the Road to WrestleMania... and a possible main event showdown with Seth Rollins.
