With @CMPunk out via knee surgery for the TLC PPV, I would assume that the WWE Champion will make an appearance on Raw tonight but we all know what occurs when one assumes. I am not an advocate of 'stripping' Punk of the WWE Championship as many of our Twitter followers @JRsBBQ have suggested. As a matter of fact, I wouldn't even consider that idea unless Punk's knee surgery is going to keep him out of action for several months of which I don't expect to happen.
Speaking of @KassiusOhno, I'd be shocked if he's not an key player on the WWE primary roster in 2013. The world traveler is a smart, strategic, focused athlete who seems to be fully invested in getting to the next level and staying there.
Already getting questions about what attraction will close the show at WWE Royal Rumble, @CMPunk vs. @TheRock or the Rumble match? I haven't a clue nor do I care as either choice would be fine with me but if I had to guess I'd guess it would be the WWE Title bout. Again, don't know and don't care as I will be watching one of my favorite PPV events of the year.
