On Tuesday, WWE Champion CM Punk underwent knee surgery to repair a torn meniscus. WWE.com claims that he suffered on Monday night when Ryback tossed him through a table. Because of this surgery, CM Punk will not be able to defend his title at TLC against Ryback.
WWE Chairman Vince McMahon made an announcement today in regards to the title and the main event of the next WWE pay-per-view event. According to his statement, Ryback will be getting a title shot against Punk in the very near future. As far as the main event of TLC goes, Ryback will be teaming with Kane and Daniel Bryan to take on The Shield in a six-man tag team TLC Match. That match will not take place under normal TLC Match rules as the only way to win this one will be via pin-fall or submission.
