CM Punk’s run in WWE ended with a whimper after the Royal Rumble in 2014 when he was frustrated with the company, leading him to walk out on the company. He had gone on record to say that he absolutely detested his time with the promotion and would never go back there. Unsurprisingly, there are those in WWE who don’t want Punk back either.

CM Punk has been the subject of controversy earlier this year and things only got worse after the brawl at AEW All Out. Since then, fans have wondered whether Punk will leave AEW and go back to WWE after 8 long years.

While speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer noted that there are some in WWE who do not want CM Punk back at all. However, those who are against Punk are not members of the Creative team.

“I know people in WWE who absolutely do not want him (Punk) there, but they are not the people on the creative team.


“Everyone knows what happened in AEW, it’s like, ‘Do we really want that? Do we need that? No we don’t need that, we don’t really want that’.

“But at the end of the day, it’s not their decision. It’s the decision of Nick Khan and Stephanie and Paul (Triple H).

“Paul may just go in there and go, ‘Look what happened, we don’t need it’. And they don’t. They don’t need it, and he may just do that.

“If it was Vince, Vince would do it I think, with that kind of money at stake.”

Triple H has also softened up when it comes to CM Punk. It remains to be seen whether he will go to WWE or not. Stranger things have happened, so we can’t discount this either.
