It has been more than seven years since CM Punk had an official match – as a newcomer to the 2014 Royal Rumble – although the Straight-Edge Superstar has made a handful of anonymous appearances on some independent shows in recent years.
Shortly after this Rumble PPV, of course, Punk made his WWE debut and focused on his MMA career and work. While his MMA career has not worked so well, the Chicago native has certainly impressed in the films Girl on the Third Floor, the number one Soska Sisters’ and Jakob’s Wife.
Punk returned to “WWE fold” in November 2019, participating in the weekly WWE Backstage. Although the show apparently focused on WWE action, the world champion’s deal was often solely with FOX and not with a formal contract with WWE.
At this stage, there are no details about the discussions CM Punk has had, but one has to imagine that every wrestling company on the planet will love Punk on their roster. be in a part-time or full-time role.
Since Tony Khan has done something huge for September’s AEW Grand Slam, many had already offered CM Punk as a chance to become #AllElite. If that’s the case, we’ll have to wait and see – although Sean Ross Sapp has shown that AEW seems to be the most realistic destination right now and that some WWE officials also expect Punk to land in All Elite Wrestling .
