WWE and the entire pro wrestling landscape has changed a lot since CM Punk walked out of the company. Now he is back on WWE Backstage and not shy of sharing his opinions.
One recent observation from CM Punk saw him suggesting a big blow-off for Lana’s angle with Rusev and Bobby Lashley. Spoiler: Lana would end up in a shark cage if CM Punk was the booker.
CM Punk compared himself to a caveman attorney freshly thawed and discovering a new world. As Renee Young spoke to TV Insider, she revealed how cool it was to be next to CM Punk has he rediscovers this wonderful world of pro wrestling.
“I saw on my timeline he likened it to the frozen caveman coming back to life and checking out the wrestling world again. Fans respect Punk so much, to see him back in any capacity of the wrestling world is a huge win for everybody all around. To see him get more comfortable in that spot, it’s fun. It’s cool to be there with him side-by-side as he is dipping his toe back into this world.”
“To hear his perspective and share that on television, I’m looking forward to seeing what happens this week coming up as we always look for that honest opinion from him. Anything that strays from that would be a misstep. We want that unfiltered Punk on our show.”
CM Punk seems to be getting more comfortable talking about WWE. There is no guarantee that CM Punk would make a return to WWE, but he is certainly able to share his uncensored take on everything going on. This is exactly why he was brought onto WWE Backstage in the first place.
