cm punk​Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com made a big announcement on this weekend's Wrestling Observer Radio. According to "one of the biggest names in the business", CM Punk is expected to return to the WWE this Monday night on Raw, which broadcasts live from his hometown of Chicago, IL. 

All kinds of stories have been thrown around in the past few weeks, ranging from the entire Punk situation being a work, to him being gone from the company for good. Quite recently WWE pulled CM Punk from a Wizard World event, replacing him with WWE World Heavyweight Champion Randy Orton, leading many to believe that the two had parted ways. However, with Batista's recent heel turn, the main event of WrestleMania XXX makes very little sense. The belief now is that either Daniel Bryan will be moved into the title picture, and Punk will go ahead with the planned match against Triple H, or Punk will be placed in the title match himself.
