During the January 29th, 2024 episode of WWE RAW, CM Punk confirmed he would miss WWE WrestleMania 40 due to a torn triceps injury. Additionally, Seth Rollins, the World Heavyweight Champion, faces uncertainty regarding his WrestleMania participation as he recovers from an MCL injury. Brock Lesnar's involvement in WrestleMania is also in doubt, linked to his association with the Vince McMahon sex trafficking lawsuit.
The Twitter account @WrestleVotes shared insights into this developing situation:
“Between the unfortunate injury to CM Punk, the questionable status of Seth Rollins, and the pulling of Brock Lesnar, the WrestleMania card has taken a sharp turn.

During the same RAW episode, a potential new direction was hinted at: Royal Rumble winner Cody Rhodes might challenge Rollins instead of undisputed Universal champion Roman Reigns. In the storyline, Cody is contemplating his options before making his final decision.
