Following up on our report from the other day that CM Punk has been working through injury, PWInsider.com is reporting that there has been some growing concern about Punk’s health of late backstage.
Punk was reportedly ill and hurt following Tuesday’s Smackdown tapings as well, and even tweeted (before it promptly deleting) that he had an accident in his pants. The feeling backstage is that Punk may have even suffered a concussion a few weeks back and has been working through several more nagging injuries.
Moreover, the site says that there has been some talk of both Punk and Alberto Del Rio retiring within the next few years. Both men have stated in the past that they would like to get out of the business before it gets the best of them, with Punk at times even stating 2015 is his target year.
This, however, may just be speculation, but his injuries as of late have undoubtedly fueled the talk.
