Does CM Punk Believe He Will Be a Failure If He Returns?, Heyman Speaks on Punk & WWE

– Paul Heyman appeared on The MMA Hour yesterday and said CM Punk’s goal in life is to never lace up his wresting boots again, whether it be for WWE, Ring of Honor, Japan or anywhere else.

Heyman said Punk believes if he comes back, he will be a failure. Heyman also thinks that Punk feels his success in life is predicated on never going back.

Heyman also noted that he believes WWE doesn’t want Punk back ever again. Of course there’s always the chance that something happens down the road and Heyman pointed this out.

Within WWE, there’s a feeling that even if Punk wanted to come back, WWE wouldn’t let him and right now, they do not want him back. It’s said that there still could be legal issues coming out of Punk’s departure from the company.

    I wish he had a proper sendoff, at the very least. Let his contract run out, but have a decent farewell. I feel like the lack of closure is what pisses a lot of fans off the most.

    It still wouldn’t be considered a success return. Then again, nothing like his year championship run would happen again, thus falling in comparison.

  • Robbie Murphy

    Not really if he brought the SAS gimmick back to feud with the now annoying 3/1 wyatt feuds

  • Kristopher Robinson

    Why? What would be the point of him returning? So he can whine about not getting his way and quit again? With Steph and Triple H at the helm more and more, I think they’d be less likely to bring guys back that quit or threaten to quit all the time and just bitch about what they’re not getting.

    Yes and no… No because the program is already set up till WM. Brock wins it at SS and holds it till WM, to add Punk in there wouldn’t get enough hype without some sort of title run.
    The whole Punk v Authority thing has been done… besides that’s what’s in store for Bryan when he returns.
    So right now adding Punk to the card would indeed be a failed return. Hes right.
    Yes because they could still get money off him regardless.

    Dead on. Heyman is just a big mouth!

    Let’s make one thing clear. IF CM Punk wanted to come back to WWE, they would not hesitate. That is FACT.
