CM Punk on possible WWE return

CM Punk

At Starrcast III in Chicago, CM Punk took part in a panel on Saturday where he discussed a number of topics which included his WWE return.

CM Punk said the following on the topic of ‘what would happen if WWE were to contact him’ (via PW Torch): “I wouldn’t not talk to them. On what planet, in what other business does somebody suspend somebody else, and then they don’t come and get them after the suspension. Like, why is it up to me? It’s just a weird situation.”

Punk said that he is over it and has been for a long time and it is in the past. He did note that he would be open to talk to somebody from the company if they were to contact him.

Punk was asked what he thinks about fans asking him to make a comeback. He said that he doesn’t think it’s weird, in fact he thinks it is a testament to his contributions in the business. Punk added that he gets asked often about his return but it’s better than being asked when he’s going to retire.

    Yeah as I say, I am not suggesting this is his start to a wrestling return of any kind. I just think a lot of the aggresiveness he has had towards the industry as a whole has lessened in the last few months. Doing Starrcast for instance is something he probably would not have even considered a year or two ago.

    Pinch of salt in this case. Phil delivered a LOT of innuendos.

    The article writer needs to read the actual interview again. He stated that the WWE hasn’t called him. He suggested the variable that IF they called him, he might answer.

    I am not suggesting for one minute that he will return to WWE or appear in AEW, but his stance on never wrestling again or never returning to WWE has certainly softened in recent months.
    I pretty much always said though that if Vince and Bret can kiss and make up, then nothing is impossible.
    And while many might say “but yeah, after the whole Aman court case WWE would not want to touch him ever again”, I would counter that with “If WWE thought there was any chance of him going to AEW, they would put all the past aside and attempt to sign him up in a heartbeat”.
