CM Punk WWE Suit

CM Punk has confirmed that he is closing in on a return to the squared circle.

The popular Chicago-born Superstar has been absent from in-ring competition since suffering a torn triceps muscle during the 2024 Royal Rumble match, however he has managed to remain a focal point of weekly WWE television thanks to a captivating feud with Drew McIntyre.

Speaking during the Money In The Bank Post Show Press Conference, the former WWE Champion remained tight lipped on an exact date, however strongly hinted that a return to in-ring action is imminent:

“I like to keep people in suspense.

I will say that I feel great and I’m ready to go, and there are things in place to protect me against myself that I maybe wish were in place ten years ago, but we don’t need to talk about the past. [I’m working with] great personnel, great facilities.

I’m busting my ass to get back, if I can steal what John [Cena] was talking about, for the fans … I’ve been working very hard to rush the rehab and come back. Everyone behind me has supported it, but they’ve also been like, ‘We’re not in a hurry,’ and I love that.”

CM Punk Causes Chaos At Money In The Bank

Punk and McIntyre have been on course for a huge bout for months with ‘The Voice Of The Voiceless’ and ‘The Scottish Warrior’ seemingly set to face off at SummerSlam, due to emanate from Cleveland Browns Stadium on 3rd August.

There is a possibility that a third big name could be added to that contest, however, after Punk’s interference during Money In The Bank not only stopped McIntyre from lifting the World Heavyweight Championship after cashing in his newly won briefcase but also denied Seth Rollins another opportunity at the gold as long as Damien Priest remains Champion owing to a stipulation added before the match.

Rollins and Punk have a long history and the furious former Shield member had to be held back from attacking an unmoved Punk following Priest’s successful title retention.
