Former WWE Superstar CM Punk has not been seen on WWE television since the 2014 edition of Royal Rumble pay-per-view. He walked out on the company the next day and has not looked back since then.
Following his WWE exit, many fans have been wanting to see Punk make his return to the company every year. At most, CM Punk returned as part of FOX Network’s WWE Backstage, where he was an occasional guest.
Now it seems Booker T thinks Punk just might return soon. On the most recent episode of his Hall Of Fame podcast, The WWE Hall Of Famer gave a very bold prediction. He predicted that CM Punk will make his return to the company during tonight’s Royal Rumble pay-per-view.
“The stars are aligned for something like this to happen. I mean, CM Punk right now, there’s a whole lot of rumblings right now as far as CM Punk goes. A whole lot of rumblings. Everybody wondering what is CM Punk going to do. Perfect time for someone like CM Punk to make a return and what a splash it would be if CM Punk was to be #30 coming into the Rumble.”
“My thing is this, CM Punk would be the most unexpected entry to enter into the 2021 Royal Rumble than anybody out there. Somebody asked me the question on Monday about who’s the unexpected guy, you know, and I had to think about it for a minute. And that would be the guy – CM Punk. CM Punk’s name is in the news. CM Punk right now he’s still a hot commodity. CM Punk fans want to see Punk drop that elbow just one more time. Hopefully he can straighten it out a little bit but definitely if fans had a choice to see one guy back, just one guy, I think CM Punk’s name would be very high up on that list, very very high. That’s just my opinion.”
We certainly wonder whether Booker T’s prediction comes true.
