Former WWE Superstar CM Punk has not been seen on WWE television since the 2014 edition of the 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. He has yet to make his return to the squared circle and at this point in time, it seems very unlikely. A WWE Superstar was also previously punished for ripping off CM Punk.
CM Punk has been in talks with AEW for quite a while as indicated by reports and it all came true as The Second City Saint made his return to pro wrestling on AEW Rampage: The First Dance back in August.
CM Punk is also aware of the fact that a pandemic is going on. Due to that, he told fans who wait at airports to get autographs from him to stop doing that. A fan took to Twitter and tried to imply double standards as he uploaded a GIF of CM Punk diving into a crowd. CM Punk replied to the fan and verbally attacked him for the suggestion as he explained the reality behind the move.
Sure is me, you cunt. At a show. Post vax, pre omicron, had to show proof of vax to gain entrance. NOT STALKING ANYONE AT AN AIRPORT OR A HOTEL. How stupid are you?
