CM Punk’s fall from grace in AEW was well-documented, almost as much as his exit from WWE. Triple H is in control of WWE’s creative direction now, and he brought back a few former Superstars already. The rumor mill is churning about CM Punk’s eventual return, but what does that really mean?

Ringside News asked around about this subject, and we were told that CM Punk’s name is going around backstage. That being said, a tenured member of the creative team confirmed to us that “the only talk about CM Punk is among the talent.”

CM Punk soured a lot of people on his name. Those internally remember this and do not want his “poison” back in the company. What CM Punk did to the AEW locker room also did not go unnoticed in WWE.

“The only talk about CM Punk is among the talent, the writers, the producers, the TV production people and everyone thinks he is poison. Look what he did to the happy and motivated locker room of AEW.”


A source also stated that, “No matter what anyone wants to say about the EVP’s, there was harmony in AEW. Then Punk got there.” There is a lot going on in the CM Punk situation, but his return to WWE is not a welcomed idea for a lot of people within the company.

Triple H stated in 2021 interview that he would have a conversation with CM Punk, and now could be the time for that to take place. Only time will tell what the future holds, but 2023 might be an even bigger year for the pro wrestling landscape than a historic 2022.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
