WWE has updated the lineup for their 12/28 return to Madison Square Garden, removing WWE champion CM Punk from the lineup. Punk was initially expected to return to action during the holiday week tour.
The new lineup features John Cena vs. Dolph Ziggler in a Steel Cage, replacing the advertised Punk vs. Ryback cage match.
Ryback will instead wrestle Paul Heyman in a singles match, so Heyman, after 20 plus years in the business, will wrestle for the first time in MSG.
Also scheduled for the house show are The Shield (making their MSG debuts), Rey Mysterio, The Miz, Kane, Daniel Bryan, Santino Marella, R Truth and Zack Ryder.
