Paul Heyman underwent a live medical evaluation

Paul Heyman might not be a fan of socialized healthcare, but thanks to the accompaniment of his personal physician Dr. Kirshenbaum, the suddenly (and conveniently) injured mad scientist had all the support he needed to withdraw from competition at Night of Champions … or so he thought. Not about to let Heyman off so easily, Raw GM Brad Maddox soon emerged with WWE doctor Michael Sampson in tow to give Heyman the live medical evaluation of the gimpy leg that would potentially clear Heyman from competition on Sunday.

Somewhat unsurprisingly, Sampson proclaimed Heyman a healthy man, and this was all the provocation that CM Punk needed to arrive, Kendo stick in hand, and commit some medical malpractice of his own by decimating Kirshenbaum while Heyman watched. Or while Heyman would have watched, anyway, had he not sprinted away on his inexplicably healed leg. It’s a miracle!

CM Punk addressed Paul Heyman and Curtis Axel

“The Voice of the Voiceless” is done talking. He’s also not in the mood to wrestle. What CM Punk wants to do, really, more than anything at this point, is fight. Still sporting the physical and mental marks of Paul Heyman’s Kendo stick assault last week on Raw, The Straight Edge Superstar practically foamed at the mouth as he promised a “Biblical” piece of payback to Paul Heyman and Curtis Axel at Night of Champions.

But Punk – who rarely swears anything  to anyone– stopped only to level a rare guarantee to the WWE Universe: At Night of Champions, he would get past Curtis Axel in the Triple Threat Elimination Match and unleash his dark side on the mad scientist. It was a guarantee that was sealed with, perhaps, the two most dangerous words Punk has ever spoken: “I promise.”
