CM Punk’s decision to ruin Drew McIntyre’s moment at Clash at the Castle has come back to haunt him. On the latest SmackDown, McIntyre unleashed a brutal attack on Punk in his hometown of Chicago, leaving him severely injured and in need of hospitalization. The severity of the assault has raised questions about Punk’s status for SummerSlam, but sources suggest he will not miss the event.

Instead, Punk is expected to take a few weeks off to recover before returning to WWE just in time for the August spectacle. This feud has transcended the heights of pro wrestling and is on track to become the biggest rivalry of the summer, culminating in a high-voltage clash at SummerSlam 2024.

The attack on SmackDown was a vicious display of McIntyre’s wrath, leaving Punk battered and bruised. The fact that Punk was taken to the hospital via ambulance during the show highlights the severity of the situation. However, Punk’s resilience and determination will likely see him return to the ring sooner rather than later.

While Punk’s return timeline is unclear, it’s possible he’ll come back on the July 8 episode of Monday Night RAW, following the Money in the Bank pay-per-view event. This would give WWE ample time to build up the rivalry between Punk and McIntyre, leading up to The Biggest Party of the Summer.

The stage is set for a thrilling showdown, and the WWE Universe eagerly awaits CM Punk’s return. The question on everyone’s mind is: will Punk be able to overcome the odds and emerge victorious, or will McIntyre’s fury prove too much to handle? Only time will tell.
