CM Punk Injury Update, HBK Driving The Pace Car At Weekend NASCAR Event

January 3, 2021 0 By HearthstoneYarns

– A press release was sent out this week announcing that WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels will be driving the official pace car at Saturday’s NRA 500 NASCAR event:

“After a career of driving opponents to the mat in professional wrestling rings with his signature ‘Sweet Chin Music’ finishing move, WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels will now grab the wheel of the ‘No Limits’ Wild Asphalt Circus Chevrolet Camaro Official Pace Car and lead the 43-car field to the green flag for Saturday evening’s NRA 500 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Texas Motor Speedway.”

– As noted earlier, CM Punk was injured at WrestleMAnia 29 during the spot where he jumped off the top rope onto the Undertaker, who was laid out on the ringside announcers table. Punk underwent X-rays and MRIs on his knees earlier this week – and it was determined that he will not need surgery. That said, Punk is banged up pretty bad and is not expected to wrestle on RAW next week when he appears.
