CM Punk is heading to SmackDown as WWE’s most high-profile free agent goes wherever he wants.
CM Punk shocked the world at Survivor Series when he returned to WWE for the first time in almost ten years. The return also came less than three months after CM Punk was very publicly fired by AEW due to his backstage altercation with Jack Perry at All In.
Punk returned to Raw in Nashville where he declared that he was “home” following his comeback and it is believed the former WWE champion is currently listed as a free agent in the company.
Now WWE has announced that CM Punk will be heading to SmackDown on the 8th of December Tribute To The Troops show in Providence, Rhode Island.

Who Will Join CM Punk On WWE SmackDown?
A tournament will begin on the same edition of SmackDown to find a new number one contender for Logan Paul’s United States Championship. Dragon Lee will face Santos Escobar in that competition in a rematch from Survivor Series while Karrion Kross will do battle with Bobby Lashley.
Punk could run into an old rival as Randy Orton has signed an exclusive deal with SmackDown as he issued a warning to Roman Reigns.
