CM Punk’s return to WWE is seemingly confirmed for Survivor Series.
As the Premium Live Event in Chicago nears closer by the day, many are expecting to hear “Cult of Personality” ring through a WWE arena for the first time in nearly a decade.
Following an initial report by the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that a return could be a possibility in November and that both sides are talking about the shock return in the hometown of The Second City Saint.
As reported by Haus of Wrestling, a source within the company believes that the Chicago return is the most likely scenario, describing it as “A safe bet.” It is also believed that despite Shawn Michaels revealing that he would be open to working with Punk on the NXT No Mercy media call, the former World Champion would be very much a fixture on the main roster. It should be noted that neither Punk or Michaels have been in contact with each other regarding the rumoured return.
Survivor Series will air live from the Allstate Arena in Chicago on November 25th.
