After his nasty release from WWE in 2014, it seemed likely that CM Punk would ever step back into the squared circle. Even CM Punk stated back then that he would never wrestle again. Seven years later, CM Punk shocked the world when he returned to professional wrestling. This time he was stepping into an AEW ring.

The dust has settled and CM Punk’s name is in the headlines again. This time, however, CM Punk seems to be the one in the wrong. His comments during the All Out media scrum led to a backstage altercation involving the promotion’s EVPs.

This resulted in all parties getting suspended and stripped of their respective titles. Since then, rumors have been doing the rounds that CM Punk is going to get bought out of his contract. This has caused many fans to speculate as to whether CM Punk may leave AEW and go to WWE under the new regime.

It is well-documented that Triple H and CM Punk aren’t even friends. However, Jim Cornette, while speaking on his The Jim Cornette Experience, seems to think that this would be the perfect time for Triple H to show the world just how much has changed in WWE by re-signing CM Punk.


“About the non-compete, right now, I would have said at any point in time, no Punk doesn’t want to go back to the WWE Punk doesn’t have to go back to the WWE, he’s still got his f*ck you money, he’s going to get bought out for a lot of money if that happens here, or else if he comes back, he get paid a lot of money. Nobody’s going to be doing any f*cking GoFundMe’s.

But now would be the perfect time for Triple H to show the world that he will put business in front of personal feelings. Because again, one of the greatest lines in the history of wrestling, it was never uttered on television, was what Punk said to Triple H in the locker room. ‘I don’t need to work with you, you need to work with me.’ But that’s not, I hate you and your family and I hope Stephanie gets run over by a herd of thundering goats or whatever…

But here’s the thing, there’s no real apologies that Triple H needs to ask for, he needs to offer some. Who was in charge? Vince McMahon. And eight years later, whatever it is. Now, depending on what this non compete clause is, Triple H can go and save the world and say to CM Punk, it’s all changed. We’re about business, let’s get together. It’s all about business, no personal feelings.”

While Triple H may look to put his personal feelings aside for the business, it remains to be seen if CM Punk will be able to do the same. Moreover, given the amount of drama that goes everywhere CM Punk goes, it’s unlikely that Triple H will want to take that burden on his head.

Do you think Triple H will re-sign CM Punk? Sound off in the comments section.
