CM Punk was last seen in a WWE ring during the 2014 Royal Rumble pay-per-view. He left the company soon after that. Since then fans have been wondering whether Punk will ever return to the WWE.
One WWE Hall Of Famer certainly believes he will very soon. While speaking on his Hall of Fame podcast, Booker T made a very interesting prediction. Booker T predicted that CM Punk will be returning at tonight’s Royal Rumble pay-per-view. Booker T said that it’s the perfect time for CM Punk to make a WWE return.
He added that Punk would be the most unexpected entry into the Royal Rumble match.
“The stars are aligned for something like this to happen. I mean, CM Punk right now, there’s a whole lot of rumblings right now as far as CM Punk goes. A whole lot of rumblings. Everybody wondering what is CM Punk going to do. Perfect time for someone like CM Punk to make a return and what a splash it would be if CM Punk was to be #30 coming into the Rumble.”
“My thing is this, CM Punk would be the most unexpected entry to enter into the 2021 Royal Rumble than anybody out there. Somebody asked me the question on Monday about who’s the unexpected guy, you know, and I had to think about it for a minute. And that would be the guy – CM Punk. CM Punk’s name is in the news. CM Punk right now he’s still a hot commodity. CM Punk fans want to see Punk drop that elbow just one more time. Hopefully he can straighten it out a little bit but definitely if fans had a choice to see one guy back, just one guy, I think CM Punk’s name would be very high up on that list, very very high. That’s just my opinion.”
We will have to see if CM Punk will return at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view.
