Maybe not? There have been a lot of important news stories taking place in the wrestling world this year but very few of them have been discussed as much as CM Punk’s rant at the AEW All Out media scrum. Punk has not yet returned to AEW TV and there is a chance that he never will. Should he leave AEW, there is only one other major place he would likely go, but that might not be so easy.
Earlier this week, a story surfaced suggesting that AEW was working on a possible contract buyout for Punk, which would eventually free him up for a possible return to WWE. However, according to PWTorch.com by way of Wrestlinginc.com, while Triple H would be willing to allow Punk to return, there is at least one person in Triple H’s “sphere of influence” of “decision-making” that would be a hard No on a Punk return. There is no word on when Punk might be able to return to WWE, assuming his AEW contract is bought out.
Opinion: While Punk leaving AEW immediately brought up discussions of a return to WWE, I really don’t think I can picture it happening. Punk did not leave WWE on good terms to say the least and then there is the entire AEW fiasco. While a Punk return to WWE would be absolutely amazing, I don’t think I can picture it happening, as the negatives seem to outweigh the positives.
Do you think Punk will return to WWE? Do you want him to? Let us know in the comments below.
