It might not work. There are all kinds of stars in the wrestling world but a few of them are quite controversial no matter what they do. You will often see a few wrestlers doing something that gets people talking about them every day, albeit not always in the most positive light. Now one of those stars is being talked about for a major return, but it might not be the most popular move.


Earlier this year, CM Punk was involved in a backstage brawl after the AEW All Out media scrum. Punk had some kind of altercation with the Elite, which has reportedly caused AEW to begin negotiations to buy out Punk’s contract. As a result, according to Wrestling Observer Radio, there have been backstage discussions in WWE about a possible Punk return to the company, if and when he is able to do so.

There are some people in WWE who do not want Punk back under any circumstances, mainly due to how he left AEW. However, those people are not part of the creative team or those who would make the decision. There is also no word on whether or not Punk is interested in returning to WWE, or if he will be able to according to the terms of a potential buyout. Punk is currently out of action recovering from tricep surgery.

Punk has history in WWE. Check out what he has done in the company:

Opinion: This seems like one of those things where we are a long way from anything being able to happen. At the same time, I don’t know if I can imagine Punk actually returning to WWE. Just because things went south in AEW, it doesn’t instantly put WWE and Punk on great terms. It would be a heck of a story, but I’m really not sure I can imagine it actually taking place. That might be the better situation too.

What do you think of Punk possibly returning to WWE? Will it ever happen? Let us know in the comments below.
