Reason For CM Punk Joining RAW Announce Team, Joey Styles' Future & More

– CM Punk joined the WWE announce table on Monday’s RAW and will remain a part of the announce team in the months to come. The main reason Punk was added to the announce team is because Vince McMahon has always been a big fan of 3-man announce teams. With Punk out of action for a few months due to his lower back injury, WWE officials wanted to keep him on television, so the announce team was a good fit.

– As he’s stated on Twitter in the past few weeks, Joey Styles’s WWE contract expires today. According to a reliable source, Styles is expected to remain with the company and will likely sign a new deal soon.

– Former WWE star Lanny “The Genius” Poffo revealed on his Poetry in Motion podcast this week that WWE Hall of Famer Bobby “The Brain” Heenan’s health has taken a turn for the worse and he’s been in a Tampa, FL hospital all week. Poffo said that Heenan wasn’t aware of anything and has been unconscious. Our thoughts go out to Heenan and his family.
