Backstage Notes On CM Punk Potentially Returning To WWE [Report]

 Although AEW hasn’t acknowledged anything, it’s widely accepted that CM Punk is no longer employed by the organisation.

Naturally, Punk made headlines when, following an AEW all-out, he attacked The Young Bucks, Kenny Omega, and “Hangman” Adam Page. This reportedly sparked a significant altercation behind the scenes, and Tony Khan, president and CEO of AEW, subsequently stripped Punk of the AEW World Championship.

At All Out, CM Punk tore his triceps, and it was previously anticipated that he would miss eight months of activity. After more than a month has passed, AEW has yet to make any formal announcements regarding the possibility of severing its relationship with him.

There are talks underway to buy out CM Punk’s contract, according to Dave Meltzer’s revelation in the most recent Wrestling Observer Newsletter (subscription required) (you can read more about that here). If that occurs, there will unavoidably be rumours that CM Punk might rejoin the WWE.

The former WWE Champion is “tight with Adam Pearce, who has some pull there, and Punk in the past has been incredibly close to Paul Heyman, who also is someone who the higher-ups seem to listen to a lot,” Meltzer wrote in the Observer in response to that prospect.

CM Punk left the WWE in January 2014 owing to injuries and dissatisfaction with the organisation. A few months later, the business formally “fired” him, and fans would have to wait nearly seven years to see him return to the ring.

Three months ago, Vince McMahon made his retirement from WWE official. Triple H was appointed the new Head of Talent Relations and the head of the creative team, and Stephanie McMahon and Nick Khan assumed control as the joint CEOs of the business. For what it’s worth, Stephanie stated that she would be open to collaborating with Punk and his wife, AJ Lee, once more in 2019.

Don’t Get Your Hopes Up Yet

It goes without saying that CM Punk would be adored by countless WWE fans. However, AEW must first formally terminate his contract before there can be any discussion of a WWE-Punk reunion. Under the new leadership team, several previously released superstars have made a comeback; perhaps they would be interested in doing the same for Punk. Everything right now is a waiting game.
