CM Punk was fired from AEW, and his options seemed to have opened up in a big way. His WWE return is churning in the rumor mill right now, but that is also a story we’ve heard before.

Click here for our exclusive report about what CM Punk wants fans to believe about his possible WWE return. WWE Backstage was also told during Punk’s run on the show that he needed to be “controlled.”

Ringside News reached out to inquire about CM Punk’s possible return to WWE. We are told that this is not the only time he’s made an attempt at a WWE return.

A tenured member of the team told us that while CM Punk, “was on the WWE show on Fox Sports. He was trying to get back in, WWE never wanted him back.” That was in reference to the WWE Backstage show, that was hosted by Renee Paquette, where Punk was special analyst.


We were further told that, “Punk thought he was creating his own angles,” on that WWE Backstage show. That being said, “WWE was never interested.”

Only time will tell what CM Punk does next, but it seems that he has burned every bridge he’s walked on so far in the pro wrestling world. Also, Tony Khan bought ROH since the last time Punk was a free agent, so that eliminates another option for him.

If CM Punk wants to wrestle badly enough, he might find a location, but WWE certainly wasn’t interested prior to his AEW signing. Obviously, this is just the beginning of this new chapter in CM Punk’s story, and he hasn’t closed the book just yet.

What’s your take on CM Punk possibly going back to WWE? Sound off in the comments to let us know what you’re thinking!

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.
