CM Punk ways with WWE after the Royal Rumble in 2014 after being frustrated with the company, which led to him walking out on it. Punk had made it clear on so many occasions that he never wanted to wrestle again. That all changed as he ended up debuting in AEW.
Punk has been the subject of controversy ever since he cut a shoot promo on Adam Page earlier this year. The brawl after AEW All Out certainly did him no favors.
Speaking with GiveMeSport, WrestleVotes noted that in July, they were told that Triple H wants nothing to do with CM Punk. However, they then added that Triple h has softened a little bit when it came to his animosity towards Punk.
“I was told, I mean, pretty straightforward, that Triple H wants nothing to do with CM Punk, and even less to do with Phil Brooks. Well, that’s what I was told and that was July.
“I did ask over the last couple of days, and it has softened a little bit from what I understand. I still think there’s animosity, I still think there’s a lot of pieces that need to be picked up between the two of them specifically. But Hunter, learned from Vince (McMahon) and Vince made amends with everybody.
“So to say that doors closed is ridiculous on anybody’s part, especially in this ‘war’ that’s happening right now… I would say never say never. Absolutely.
Even Ric Flair thinks CM Punk returning to WWE isn’t impossible. We will have to wait and see what will become of CM Punk in the end.
