Backstage Update from RAW on The Rock's Injury, Why CM Punk Was Kept Off Tonight's RAW

- CM Punk was kept off tonight's RAW to sell his loss to The Undertaker and because he's banged up. As noted, he will be on next week's RAW.

- The Rock's torn abductor and abdominal muscles injury is reportedly a legitimate injury. The story is that Rock left WrestleMania abruptly after learning of the injury. He immediately went home to get treatment because he has to film Hercules soon.

There was initially heat on The Rock because many within WWE were not aware of the injury. The heat is gone although there was grumbling among some wrestlers that if they can work hurt, Rock could have at least came out and done a promo. WWE was not informed of Rock's injury until well into this afternoon, causing mass re-writes to RAW and the chaos that comes along with it.
