Breaking: CM Punk to speak to open Raw tonight

Via the WWE text service, CM Punk will address his actions of leaving Cena to be destroyed by The Big Show and then taking out The Rock as he saved Cena. This will open the show at 8pm.

Raw is now on its regular 3 hour program, and this will be the first without legends and segments to fill a ton of that time, so it is the first true 3 hour test.

Tonight’s show is the actual 1000th episode, as the celebration was moved up a week as to not compete with the Olympics.
