CM Punk has never failed to burn bridges with many companies he has worked with, as controversy always follows him every step of the way. He was fired from AEW last week after lot of drama and now rumors suggest he wants to return to WWE. It appears Eric Bischoff believes Punk will get stuffed into a garbage can if he is a bully in WWE.

Ringside News exclusively reported that CM Punk made desperate attempt to return to WWE when he was part of the WWE Backstage show a few years ago. Other reports have suggested that he was interested in returning to WWE before his AEW comeback earlier this year.

While speaking on the 83 Weeks podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Eric Bischoff addressed CM Punk possibly going to WWE. Bischoff questioned if WWE is wiling to take the rick to bring him back and also stated that he believes Punk will get stuffed into a garbage if he tried any sort of bullying in WWE.

“It could be good. Look, again, this falls in the category of fantasy booking, but let’s just entertain ourselves for a minute. What if WWE, for whatever reason, Paul Levesque decided, ‘You know what, I’m gonna bring him in and give it a shot.’


“Historically, WWE’s done that type of thing, you just covered it. But also, Punk is not going to bully his way around a WWE locker room. He’ll find himself stuffed in a garbage can. That won’t be tolerated, and he knows that.”

It’s one thing to get physical and call it ‘Jungle’ Jack Perry, it’s quite another thing to try and throw your weight around in a WWE locker room. It’s not the same. And I think Punk — I don’t know him at all — but Punk would also know that this is like a big opportunity and probably my last shot. So he’d probably go in with a much different attitude than he had in AEW… The question is whether or not they need him and it’s worth the risk to them.”

Ringside News also exclusively reported that CM Punk wants fans to believe WWE is an option for him. We’ll have to wait and see what will become of The Second City Saint in the end.
