The Latest on Ryback’s WWE Status, Is He Really Injured?, Possible Reason Why CM Punk Was Included in His Cryptic Tweet

RybackAs we noted yesterday, WWE star Ryback posted, then eventually deleted, a Tweet claiming he was dealing stuff that needed to be fixed, and he would be going away for awhile.

Michael Cole subsequently said on Main Event last night that Ryback is indeed injured, and would be missing a few weeks of action. Adam Rose then made light of the injury during the show and Curtis Axel noted he would be working singles matches until The Big Guy returns.

According to an update by PWInsider.com, there appears to be confusion surrounding Ryback’s actual status, as many WWE sources are claiming he is not actually hurt, and he’s not currently scheduled to take any time off.

As for why Ryback included an action figure of himself standing over an action figure of CM Punk in the injury Tweet he posted, sources believe this was Ryback’s way of taking a shot at Punk.

Back in 2012, during a Punk Ryback spot, Ryback was supposed to drop Punk through a table, but he botched the spot and Punk hit the floor, resulting in Punk getting hurt. When Ryback posted the Tweet, with the caption “Sorry Punk,” many wrestlers took it as a shot towards Punk.
