Will CM Punk Return To The WWE?

Okay, so I promise this won’t be another article about whether or not CM Punk will return to the WWE. Okay, well maybe I shouldn’t promise that, but here goes …

One simple Instagram post recently, sent the WWE Universe into a frenzy.

For anyone that follows John Cena on social media, 90% of what he posts on his Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts are total randoms. In fact, I don’t (generally) don’t take anything Cena posts to heart. Still, it was just some weeks back, prior to the Royal Rumble, on the cusp of rumors that AJ Styles had signed with the WWE and was going to make his WWE in-ring debut, that Cena posted this photo.

John was totally teasing an AJ Styles WWE debut. So posting CM Punk’s Twitter profile picture would understandably cause an Instagram frenzy, sparking rumors that Punk could be heading back to the WWE.

Here’s the thing, the WWE is struggling right now with injuries as they head into Wrestlemania 32; not just another month pay-per-view (PPV), but the PPV of the year. Many of their top stars have hit the non-active list and cannot perform at their flagship event. WWE wants to break attendance records, they want to roll out a tremendous event, and they need to continue to set the Wrestlemania bar higher and higher: and let’s face it, CM Punk (in any capacity) at the ‘grandest stage of them all’ could help them do just that.

However, just as the WWE is struggling with Wrestlemania 32 and injuries, CM Punk is struggling as well.

First and foremost, he has back issues that need surgery; reason number one why he may not head back to the WWE anytime soon. He’s had to push back his UFC debut (again), a highly anticipated debut that has simply fizzled at this point. Listen, I have watched UFC bouts, I do find them entertaining, but I am not a huge fan; and I’m not putting down MMA or UFC, just stating a fact that I am not really involved in this sport. But with Punk’s debut being pushed back constantly, I am genuinely curious if any UFC fans (or fans of Punk) really care at this point … because I’m kind of over it myself.

Then of course, there’s that small issue of WWE’s doctor, Chris Amann suing CM Punk (and Colt Cabana for that matter) for comments they both made during a podcast that aired in November 2014.

So, do I think CM Punk is returning to the WWE anytime soon? I think he will return to the company, someday; but not anytime soon. He’s got far too many issues right now that need to be cleared up (health and lawsuit-wise), and I think it would still be too soon for him to push his feelings aside, and do what’s ‘best for business’.

So, perhaps Cena’s random post was simply a nod to Punk’s current injury; or maybe it was just to ‘get the people going’. Regardless, while there is some slight foreshadowing to some things Cena posts, most of what goes on, on his social media accounts, simple need to be fluffed off.

    maybe he was referring to Shane. White hair n all

    Trouble is a fair bit of his fallout was to do with HHH, and he’s not going anywhere.

    I doubt that Punk will return inside a WWE ring. Why return to a place when you’re not fond of the people running it. Maybe they’ll make up their differences one day.

  • KingBack

    Cena is just messing with the fans..

  • The Shockmaster

    Punk will only return in about 2021 for a Hall of Fame induction

    • Someguy

      ( ?° ?? ?°)?!

      Why 2021?

  • jcice13

    he’s not coming back because he knows if he does he looks like the biggest hypocrite of all time and he’ll never tarnish his image that way..he’d rather be a street cleaner than a WWE superstar and if it’s true that he has more than enough money to last 3 lifetimes? then why would he come back..now if some day they want to put him in the HOF then maybe but in ring? never..HOF a slight maybe but even that I doubt
