CM Punk left WWE after the Royal Rumble in 2014 after being frustrated with the company, leading him to walk out on it. Punk had made it clear that he never wanted to go back to pro wrestling but ultimately changed his mind.
For many years fans wondered if he will ever go back to WWE, but it seems CM Punk had absolutely no intention of ever doing so as it was never on the table.
After arriving in AEW a few months ago, CM Punk became one of the mainstays of AEW television and has feuded against the likes of Darby Allin, Eddie Kingston and others. Finally, CM Punk started a long-awaited feud with MJF and engaged in a war of words last week on AEW Dynamite.
While speaking on his Hall of Fame podcast, Booker T stated that CM Punk is still bitter about WWE, which is reflected in his promos. He also made it clear that MJF was clearly the winner in their promo battle.
“The Miz is good at what he does, you know, even MJF. I do not look at MJF as being the best wrestler in the world. However, as far as him going out there and being able to sell tickets and put butts on the seats, he does that exceptionally well. I think, you know, from CM Punk’s side, it will always go back to WWE to get a cheap pop.
You could say whatever you want about that. I just think, you know, the stuff about Tony Khan needing to get a daughter, you know, that kind of stuff. Yeah, I mean, it just rings bitter, you know? I mean I guess to me everything that MJF said in that promo, it was hard bro. It was hardcore. If I was on the opposite end, I would’ve been throwing up my hands to block some of the punches coming my way.”
We will have to wait and see how AEW will book CM Punk and MJF’s feud as it is certainly one of the best things going on in the company right now as fans can’t get enough of it.
