CM Punk was absent from the world of pro wrestling after walking out on WWE back in 2014. Fans had all but given up when it came to his pro wrestling return as well.

The Secon City Saint finally made his return to pro wrestling as he debuted during AEW Rampage: The First Dance. Punk made a huge impact in AEW, becoming their World Champion twice.

While speaking with Wrestling Inc, former ROH owner Cary Silkin revealed that attempts were made on ROH’s end to bring Punk and Danielson back to the company before the pandemic started.

“Then in 2020, pre-pandemic, when he was out of wrestling, Sinclair, when they were still trying to grow this was … And I don’t remember if it was before the first All Out, All In or after, might have been after that. Sinclair was trying to lure CM Punk or Bryan Danielson or both.


I said to Joe, ‘I know Punk.’ I said I could reach out to him and I did. I called him up. I didn’t text him and he was in L.A. doing something and maybe some kind of film work and I gave him Greg’s number and vice versa, or Joe’s number and nothing ever happened.”

CM Punk is currently away from AEW television due to injury. We will have to wait and see when he will be bale to make his return.
