WWE Considering 'Just About Everything' For WrestleMania 40 Following CM Punk Injury

Changes coming to WWE WrestleMania 40

WWE's WrestleMania plans have been in turmoil in recent days.

Reports have noted that multiple changes have already been made to the WrestleMania 40 card as a domino effect of Brock Lesnar being implicated in the sex trafficking lawsuit filed against Vince McMahon. Lesnar was reportedly scheduled to face Gunther, likely in an Intercontinental Championship match, on April 6 or April 7 but Lesnar is not expected back on WWE TV any time soon after his original planned return at the Royal Rumble was scrapped. 

More changes will have to be made, though, after CM Punk announced he suffered a torn triceps in the men's Royal Rumble match, putting him out of action beyond WrestleMania 40. Punk was internally scheduled to challenge Seth Rollins for the World Heavyweight Championship at the Showcase of the Immortals. Rollins himself is also currently working with a torn meniscus and MCL. 

Taking to X (FKA Twitter), WrestleVotes has reported that "just about everything" is now under consideration for WrestleMania. 

"Between the unfortunate injury to CM Punk, the questionable status of Seth Rollins and the pulling of Brock Lesnar, the WrestleMania card has took a sharp turn. Source said there are a number of brand new 'card variations' on the table, including some superstars who were not pegged towards the top just days ago. I'm being told they will take their time to figure things out and consider 'just about everything,'" WrestleVotes wrote.

WrestleMania 40 will emanate from Philadelphia's Lincoln Financial Field on April 6 and April 7.
