I spoke to someone close to the WWE creative team this morning to check on CM Punk’s status going into his WWE Championship match against John Cena at tonight’s WWE Money in the Bank pay-per-view. I’m told Vince McMahon has kept the finish “close to the vest” and could still be changing his mind. The writers are said to be “super stressed” about tomorrow night’s WWE Raw, not knowing which direction McMahon wants to go tonight.
One observer in the know speculated a Cena heel turn but cautioned this is something that came up last summer but never happened. As of this writing no one knows the outcome of Punk vs. Cena and realizes McMahon is not telling anyone to prevent it from leaking out prior to tonight’s show.
We’ll have full WWE Money in the Bank coverage tonight here on WrestlingNewsWorld.com at 8 PM EDT.
