Backstage News From Raw – Originally Scheduled Main Event, CM Punk & Dean Ambrose Hurt, Xavier Woods

– The originally scheduled main event for Monday’s Raw in Memphis, Tennessee was to have featured WWE Tag Team Champions Cody Rhodes and Goldust vs. The Shield in a Handicap Match. Vince McMahon, however, changed creative plans over the course of the day, as a Triple Threat Match for the WWE Tag Team Championship was instead announced for this Sunday at Hell in a Cell (Cody Rhodes and Goldust will defend their belts against The Shield and the Uso brothers) and United States Champion Dean Ambrose vs. Daniel Bryan was added to the show at the last minute.

Speaking of Ambrose, he appeared to have tweaked his knee after being tossed out of the ring during his show-opening match against Bryan. He was limping slightly backstage following the match, but it is not considered serious.

– In a tag team match pitting Hell in a Cell opponents, CM Punk and Big E Langston defeated Intercontinental Champion Curtis Axel and Ryback on Raw. Following the bout, there was a lot of talk backstage of Punk appearing hurt.

– While Xavier Woods was backstage at Raw, there were no plans for him to appear on the broadcast.

    Punk should take a break, if his body is as banged up as reports claim. As wrestling fans sometimes we are selfish and want guys to wrestle week in and week out. We sometimes forget what they put their bodies through weekly. I would rather Punk take a few months off to recover than to have him so banged up that it cuts his career years short.

    They should set up an angle at Hell in a Cell where Punk has to take time off. Let him rest up a few months, then return at the Rumble and win it, setting up a strong 2014.

      Hope they keep the plans for him to win the rumble, he still hasn’t done that. The crowd would lose their headds.

    When is Punk not hurt?

      When he isn’t busting his ass for your entertainment day in and day out.

    I think The Great Khali tweaked his knee while dancing like Elvis last night. He was limping slightly back to the dressing room. Not sure if anyone else noticed.

      Khali’s knees and overall his lower body looks so weak. I feel bad for the guy, he struggles just to walk.


      That was painful to watch
