CM Punk’s AEW release sparked rumors about his potential return to WWE. While official reports have consistently denied any ongoing discussions between CM Punk and WWE, some fans remain hopeful each week.
A WWE executive recently weighed in on whether the company was trying to erase CM Punk’s legacy. They have carried on with business as usual without him, and there is no sign that they are going to have him back.
Sean Sapp noted behind Fightful’s Paywall that, as of November 20th, there are no talks going on between CM Punk and WWE.
“As of last night, we’re told WWE’s stance hadn’t changed on CM Punk at Survivor Series.”
Ringside News exclusively reported that WWE’s mindset about CM Punk’s return isn’t likely to change due to fans chanting for him at events. There were CM Punk chants heard during WWE Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia. CM Punk chants also popped up during Shinsuke Nakamura vs Akira Tozawa’s match on RAW. That being said, WWE realizes that fans are chanting for CM Punk. That doesn’t mean WWE is any closer to inking a new deal with CM Punk.
Ringside News was able to exclusively reported that a tenured member of the team told us, “There is no interest in CM Punk. The damage he did to AEW was as bad as what Vince Russo did to WCW.“
For the record, Ringside News exclusively reported that WWE’s mindset about CM Punk’s return isn’t likely to change due to fans chanting for him at events. That won’t stop fans, likely in Chicago at Survivor Series, from chanting his name a few times.
