AEW World Champion CM Punk injured, will require surgery

CM Punk appeared live on AEW Rampage to address the AEW World Championship and his career. There were rumors of an injury to Punk because he was seen limping after his match on Dynamite.

Punk said that every bone in his body, even the broken ones, were telling him earlier today to go back home to be with his wife and dog but he felt that he owed the fans an explanation.

Punk said that he is injured and needs surgery. Punk added that "a couple of things are broken and the biggest one is my heart" but the good news is that the wheels haven't fallen off and he's been through worse. Punk said that he doesn't want to hold up the company and he will relinquish the title. He promised to come back bigger, faster, stronger, and hungrier than ever before. There was no timetable given for his return to action.

UPDATE: It was later stated that Punk is still champion and an interim champion will be crowned at the Forbidden Door PPV.
