– As previously reported, the source of the news that claimed CM Punk was “expected” to make his WWE return at Monday’s RAW in Chicago was Dave Meltzer and the Wrestling Observer Radio Show. Meltzer noted during the show on Sunday that a “top WWE Superstar” said he “100 percent expected” Punk to return at the show. After he didn’t return last night, Meltzer noted on today’s Wrestling Observer Radio Show broadcast that the same source told him “I was lied to” immediately after RAW went off the air.
– Speaking of last night’s RAW, according to one source, Paul Heyman went off-script during his promo to open the show. Heyman switched up some of the stuff that was originally planned for his speaking role, but didn’t really go too far overboard and hit the basic points that were expected from him.
