Injury Update On CM Punk, WWE Star Receiving New Theme Song, Finlay's Status
source: Wrestling Observer Newsletter
— CM Punk is expected to be kept out of the ring for another month. He had floating particles in his elbow which was causing it to lock up. He underwent minor surgery as a result.
— Though Vince McMahon made the call to pull Finlay from television due to his advancing age, 51, he is being booked to appear on live events to work with younger talent. Many feel rookies working with rookies does no good, but Finlay, as well as Goldust, can be solid teachers in the ring at house shows.
— The July 2, 2010 episode of Friday Night SmackDown scored a 1.7 broadcast rating with 2,642,000 viewers. While the rating stayed the same from the previous week, viewership was down from 2,840,000 million viewers.
— WWE is currently working on a new theme song for MVP.
