WWE teases CM Punk comeback with intriguing video

WWE teases a potential CM Punk comeback with intriguing video.

WWE posted a video on its official YouTube channel teasing a possible return of CM Punk. The video in and of itself is intriguing since it features Punk take on a man whom he’d accused of stealing his spotlight during his time with WWE, ergo Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson.

CM Punk rose to prominence in the WWE after winning the Money In The Bank ladder match at Wrestlemania 24, and would go on to become one of the most beloved anti-heroes in the history of professional wrestling. He parted ways with WWE and pro-wrestling in 2014, citing injury and concussion issues sustained over the course of his 15-year career.

Punk competed in his first, and what is to date his only, MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) bout last year, losing to Mickey Gall at UFC 203. He has since appeared on MTV’s reality show The Challenge.

Although the 37-year old has repeatedly shot down the proposition of returning to professional wrestling over the course of the past 3 years, the offers seem to keep pouring in for the former WWE champion, what with British promotion 5 Star Wrestling offering him a staggering $1 million to return.

Nevertheless, the WWE and CM Punk himself have been mum as regards a potential comeback for the Straight Edge Superstar. That is until the WWE teased a Punk comeback in a video it recently posted-

CM Punk is still contracted to the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) last having competed in the promotion’s Welterweight (170 pound) division. His departure from WWE was by no means cordial, per se, with severe accusations being levied by both sides on one another.

Regardless, with that being said, this is after all professional wrestling, and when it comes to the WWE- Never say ‘never’. If Bret Hart can return to WWE after the Montreal Screwjob, who’s to say CM Punk won’t? Imagine the pop when the Cult of Personality hits! That’s gold right there, folks!

    I guess you either missed the part (or deliberately ignored it) where I said…

    “This particular situation could be much ado about nothing.”

    This will get more views on their channel, which they will need know that YouTube has branded all wrestling channels as being “not advertiser friendly” and killing revenue for them.

    Now he has at least somewhat of a bargaining-chip OK what would that be ? And there is no “might have been false” it was confirmed by the company they didnt make an offer, every stop n think old man punk who has no future lets be honest in UFC, put it out himself

    Dave Meltzer is right more than he is wrong, but he is wrong more often than people will admit. So I don’t take everything Meltzer says as truth.

    It might have been false, but the point is that interest is out there. It really all depends on what HE wants to do.

    it’s most likely WWE uploaed it not because of Punk but more or less to highlight The Rock as he has a new movie coming out, which is the new “Baywatch” movie.

    Meltzer said that the UK rumors were false though, didn’t he?

    Learn to spell per se or don’t use it.

    Vince likes to play keep away. Jim Ross was close to signing a deal to do play-by-play in a competitor’s market, then out of nowhere he resigns with WWE.

    The fact that someone is legitimately reaching out to CM Punk I’m sure got their attention. CM Punk is in a position of leverage now. Before he had no leverage because of how he left and because he got his clock-cleaned by Mickey Gall. Now he has at least somewhat of a bargaining-chip. The fact that he has been so quiet recently as adverse to in the past when he has definitively and LOUDLY shot down return rumors is another red flag.

    We all know that eventually he will come back. This particular situation could be much ado about nothing.

    There’s clickbait and then there’s this article…

    How is posting one video featuring him teasing his return? They could be doing it as a way to reach out to him, but I HIGHLY doubt that it’s anything more than an attempt at possibly getting his attention, if that.
