Backstage News On CM Punk’s Hell In A Cell Match, Latest On Colt Cabana’s WWE Tryout

– CM Punk was written into plans for last Tuesday’s SmackDown tapings but was pulled because he’s banged up and officials didn’t want him to get injured any more going into tonight’s Hell In a Cell pay-per-view.

Word going around WWE creative is that Punk is going into the pay-per-view hurt and that’s probably going to affect how his match with Ryback and Paul Heyman is booked tonight. Tonight’s match is not scheduled to be the end of the Punk vs. Heyman feud.

– previously reported Colt Cabana revealed on Steve Austin’s podcast that he was scheduled for a WWE announcers tryout soon but then downplayed the reports on Twitter. Despite Cabana saying “no WWE for me”, word within WWE is that he’s still scheduled for a tryout some time in November.

    How long can they drag this Punk/Heyman feud on for? Surely an indication of the crowds reaction towards this storyline now should make a point.

    • Dan Saint

      I think Survivor Series is the perfect end. Maybe have a Team Heyman vs Team Punk. Punk wins and then finally gets his hands on Heyman and ends the torment of his former mentor, once and for all. 4 on 4 match probably looks like Ryback, Axel, Heyman, and a mystery guy vs Punk, Kingston, Langston, and maybe Ziggler.

        Sounds pretty … lame. Do you work for creative?
