The current plan is for Jon Moxley and CM Punk to rematch at All Out on 9/4 in Chicago, so whatever went down last night was part of whatever the plan is to get them to Chicago.  I don't know if this was planned to line up, but Cleveland, where Punk got destroyed by Moxley (who was basically in his hometown) last night, is the same city he lost his UFC debut and also the city he walked out of WWE in January 2014.  Obviously, Chicago is Punktown, has confirmed that the nature of Thunder Rosa's injury is a disc issue in her back.  We are told it was something she has been trying to work through of late.  There's no word on a timetable for her return.  

Since a few people have asked, MJF was not backstage last night.  As I have noted in a recent Q&A, if he's not back by the end of All Out week, I don't know if or when would make sense for his return.
