CM Punk's Return Not Believed To Have Been A Tough Decision For WWE

CM Punk’s return to WWE ‘not a tough decision’

CM Punk’s shock return to WWE is still fresh, with the former WWE Champion having made his return at Survivor Series a little under two weeks ago.

The newly repaired relationship has already bore fruit in terms of viewership and social media impact, and according to NXT’s Shawn Michaels, signing Punk wasn’t a tough decision for WWE:

“We all sort of sat under the same learning tree here; business is first it’s just that simple. I don’t think it was a tough decision for anybody, other than the same thing that’s always tough which is working the ins-and-outs and ups-and-downs and numbers and stuff. As far as a business decision I don’t think it was that tough for anybody because to me it was a good business move. I’m happy that it got done. I want this company to thrive I want it to do well, I want the people that come through the doors whether it be NXT or coming through the doors to WWE, that’s where we get into this stuff because we love it and we wanna have success.

“From a Punk standpoint to me I have always found that if you can go out on your terms that makes the leaving when you do leave this easy and peaceful and that’s what I want for everybody. Again, for me the whole time I have done this job I have seen people struggle with walking away, so however it is you decided that you want to make your exit I don’t care where it is or when it is if it’s something you have peace with that’s what’s so important to me, with this job and life and everything,” said Michaels on the NXT Deadline media call.
