Report: Update On Potential WWE Interest In Signing CM Punk
Latest on CM Punk possibly going back to WWE
Following his firing by All Elite Wrestling, speculation has suggested CM Punk could make a shocking return to WWE almost 10 years after he exited the company in 2014, with Survivor Series set to take place in Chicago later this year.
Reports have noted that Punk still has 'major heat' with top WWE names but that might not stop WWE from bringing in the Second City Saint. Fight Fans noted this information only came from one source and should be treated as simply a rumour but Vince McMahon is reportedly amenable to bringing Punk back "if each party could find an agreement." Triple H, meanwhile, is open to re-signing Punk.
The source said: "Hunter will do what is 'best for business' but it HAS to make sense and he won't do certain things for a pop. He's interested in long-term thinking. If Punk did come back, I wouldn't bank on it being by Royal Rumble. My guess would be either road to Mania, or shortly after, if it was to happen - no guarantees."
Punk and Triple H did have issues in the past but those hostilities were resolved when Punk was backstage at an episode of Monday Night Raw in April. Punk was briefly backstage at Raw as the show was in Chicago but he was eventually told to leave the building, per the instructions of Vince McMahon, after Punk had spoken with The Miz and Triple H.
