- The unofficial estimate from a few people close to CM Punk is that he will be out of action for around three weeks but a more solid time frame is expected to be released within a few days. Punk’s recuperation time will depend on how well he progresses while rehabbing the knee that was operated on. As noted, Punk’s WWE Title match against The Rock at the Royal Rumble is not in jeopardy.

Punk’s knee problem had been noticeable by some in recent matches but for the most part he worked through it without any outward signs of a problem. In the storylines, WWE blamed the injury on Ryback putting Punk through the table at Monday’s RAW. Word is that the table spot was done in case he needed time off, which he did.

- It looks like WWE Divas Champion Eve Torres and Rey Mysterio will be missing the TLC pay-per-view. Eve is banged up while Rey has been given some time off to deal with personal matters.

- The November 5th episode of WWE RAW had 258,000 homes watching on DVR or tape delay. The November 12th episode had 340,000 homes watching on DVR or tape delay.
