If CM Punk were to return to WWE, one member of the Raw roster would be supportive of it as long as it helped the company.
It has been nearly ten years since CM Punk walked away from WWE on the day after Royal Rumble 2014. Since then, the former five-time WWE World Champion left the wrestling business completely for seven years before returning with AEW in 2021.
That AEW run for CM Punk saw him win their World Title two times. He also had a lengthy injury absence and got into multiple backstage fights, which led to AEW firing CM Punk in September 2023.
Since CM Punk left AEW, there have been a lot of rumors about what’s next for the controversial star who still has a lot of name value in pro wrestling, he can still put on good matches and is regarded as an elite talker as well. It has led to some people thinking a WWE return could be in the works as well since fans have seen other big names with controversial exits return to the company like Bruno Sammartino, Bret Hart, and The Ultimate Warrior among others.
Johnny Gargano, who is on the WWE Raw roster, told the Battleground Podcast that he would support CM Punk returning to WWE if it helped the company.
“There are so many eyes currently on WWE television. Obviously, every little bit helps. I mentioned how Logan Paul has taken the United States Championship all over the world with him and getting new eyes on the product. At the end of the day, whatever is going to get more eyes on WWE television, that’s the best move possible. Whoever that may be, whoever they bring in, whatever eyes they bring in. I’m all for it.”
Will CM Punk Be At WWE Survivor Series?
The next WWE Premium Live Event is the Survivor Series on November 25th taking place at the Allstate Arena in Chicago. It’s the city where CM Punk was born, raised and still lives so it has led to a lot of speculation that if WWE was going to bring him back then they would do it at Survivor Series.
While there is no official word on whether WWE will bring back Punk at Survivor Series or at a later date, it is believed that the door is not completely closed on CM Punk returning to WWE. It has also been reported that WWE turned down CM Punk when he reached out to them, but it’s also a situation that could certainly change as well.
