– CM Punk will not need surgery for his lower body injury reports PWInsider. Instead Punk will rehab the injury and is expected to have an on-air role until he fully recovers. He was a co-commentator for this week’s edition of WWE Superstars and will most likely continue with similar roles.

– Recently released WWE Superstar Matt Hardy has been added to the K&S Wrestlefest on December 11 in Essington, PA at the Ramada. Sean Waltman, Perry Saturn and Jushin Liger have also been added to the event.

– Jim Ross thanked his fans in his latest blog over at JRBarBQ.com. JR posted the following: “My thanks to all that have emailed me regarding my return to WWE Goes Old School on Raw Monday night. I simply can’t answer every email that we have received, the volume was overwhelming, but please know that each and every one was read and appreciated.” He added, “I will have another blog up asap discussing my Raw experience in more detail and some thoughts of returning to the announce table.”
