It has not been a good few months for CM Punk.
His friend and mentor, Paul Heyman, turned his back on him at Money in the Bank.
He lost to Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam.
And now, Heyman, of all people, has a pinfall victory over the 434 day title holder, thanks in no small part to interference by Ryback.
But tonight, Punk returns to the place that has hosted many of his greatest successes.
A triumphant return against Chris Jericho at Payback 2013. A more personal victory over Jericho at Extreme Rules 2012.
And, of course, his first WWE Championship at Money in the Bank 2011.
When Punk enters the Allstate Arena filled to capacity with his adoring hometown fans, will he have revenge on his mind?
And moreover, will it be the boost he needs to rid himself of Heyman once and for all, and get his career back on track?
There's only one way to find out.
CM Punk comes home.
