Chris Hardwick, host of Comedy Central's @midnight show, wrote the following on Reddit about CM Punk being pulled from this week's show:

"As of right now, he's pulled out of the show for that date. Punk's a really great dude and I know the decision wasn't made lightly. He's my friend so I support whatever he feels like he needs to do. Worry not! I'm sure we'll get him rebooked soon."

Hardwick noted that they are working on getting more wrestlers on the show and Chris Jericho will be an upcoming guest.
