CM Punk has made it clear that returning to WWE isn’t just about him because it’s about the fans too.

It has been an interesting homecoming for CM Punk since he returned at Survivor Series on November 25th. Since then, the former WWE Champion has delivered promos on Raw, Smackdown and NXT Deadline all sharing the same message about how he was “home” in WWE and that he loved the fans.

Whether you like him or you hate him, it’s clear that a lot of WWE fans like CM Punk and he has let them know that he heard those “CM Punk” chants over the last decade.

During an appearance on Instagram Live for Elite Comics and Kulture City, Punk made it clear that his return is for the fans.

“This isn’t about me, this is about us. This about everybody that is behind me. That for ten years didn’t forget, chanted my name. I’m going to put the boots back on for all of ya’ll. We’re going to go on this journey together.”

CM Punk Making WWE In-Ring Return At Live Event

It was announced over the last week that CM Punk would be in action against The Judgment Day’s Dominik Mysterio on December 26th at Madison Square Garden in New York City and December 30th in Los Angeles (Inglewood), California at the KIA Forum.

That match at MSG will be Punk’s first official match in WWE since the 2014 Royal Rumble. Punk walked out of WWE one night after that.

While speaking about Dominik during Friday’s CFFC 128 event in Atlantic City, Punk had a good line about wanting to punch Dominik in the face since he was eight years old.

“Ladies and gentlemen, if you’re out there on the 30th, you better be watching some grappling. Unless you’re in LA, come out to the Kia Forum, watch me beat up Dirty Dominik. I’ve been wanting to punch this kid in the face since he was 8 years old. Now he’s legal and I’m going to destroy him.”

That was a reference to CM Punk’s 2010 feud with Rey Mysterio when Punk involved Rey’s family, including Dominik, in the story.
