The pro wrestling world is ablaze with anticipation as CM Punk, the hottest free agent in the industry, reignites speculation about a potential return to WWE. Punk, whose last appearance on WWE television was at Royal Rumble 2014, has been at the center of intense rumors since his release from AEW in September.
Punk’s journey in the wrestling world took a surprising turn when he made his long-awaited return in 2021, signing with rival promotion AEW. However, his AEW stint came to an unexpected end after a backstage altercation with Jungle Boy, as revealed by Tony Khan.
Recent reports from Fightful Select have shed light on WWE’s proactive approach to the CM Punk situation. Triple H, WWE’s Chief Content Officer, reportedly briefed the talent and prepared them to address questions about Punk’s potential return during the press conference for WWE Fastlane 2023. Surprisingly, despite the buzz surrounding Punk, no one raised the question to Triple H or any of the superstars during the press conference.

CM Punk has long been a significant figure in pro wrestling, enjoying a legendary career with some of the most memorable moments in the industry. His iconic rivalries, including his battles with John Cena and his rebellious character, made him a beloved figure among fans.
Punk’s legacy could have included ending The Undertaker’s WrestleMania streak, as internal discussions reportedly considered him for the role. However, not all was smooth behind the scenes, and disputes with WWE over his booking led to Punk’s acrimonious departure from the company.
Now, as a free agent once again, recent reports suggest a positive turn of events. CM Punk made waves when he visited WWE backstage during Raw in April, reconnecting with old friends and notably having a pleasant meeting with Triple H. This encounter has fueled speculations that WWE and CM Punk have mended their past issues and are open to future collaborations.
WWE has also dropped hints about CM Punk’s potential return on their Instagram, where the superstar revisited some of his iconic promo lines. Additionally, Shinsuke Nakamura’s use of Punk’s finishing move, the GTS (Go To Sleep), further added fuel to the rumor mill.
The speculation surrounding Punk’s return has gained even more momentum with WWE announcing the Survivor Series in CM Punk’s home country. Fans are on the edge of their seats, eagerly awaiting what could potentially be one of the most significant comebacks in WWE history.
