CM Punk’s potential WWE return is still possible, just not in the immediate future.
Punk’s return remains a constant rumour as Survivor Series in Chicago draws closer and closer by the day. Some fans remain in a state of confusion regarding the whole thing as one day a report is published that states that there have been no intentions of the former AEW Champion making a return, but a few days later Nakamura is seen hitting a GTS on Raw.
As reported by the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Punk is not set to make a comeback unless there is a huge public outcry, which has yet to happen. It is said to also be ultimately down to Vince McMahon. While talks are said to be currently “dead” there should be a never-say-never attitude because “it’s wrestling.”
There were also assumptions on social media that the company was once again hinting at a Punk return when Corey Graves uttered the line “The greatest trick the devil ever said was making people think he didn’t exist.” While some may have thought that it was associated with Punk, it is actually a Dusty Rhodes quote that was uttered long before Punk adopted it.
CM Punk Rejected By WWE
The latest update came on October 10th when it was revealed that despite Punk making it clear that he wanted to make a return to the company he left 9 years ago, it was rejected as the negatives outweighed the positives. Multiple reports have attempted to shoot down any discussions regarding Punk’s return as they don’t want fans in Chicago assuming that an appearance will take place and they are left disappointed.
