CM Punk’s AEW firing is still generating conversation. With his history in WWE, a lot of fans are naturally asking whether he has a shot at making a return to WWE.

Finn Balor was questioned about CM Punk, as he’s been a prominent topic in pro wrestling discussions. However, Balor and Punk have yet to face each other in a match, but it’s always possible in the future.

The wrestling career of CM Punk remains uncertain after his release from AEW on Saturday, September 2. Tony Khan stated that he terminated Punk’s contract with cause due to an incident at AEW All In. Khan expressed concerns for his safety and the well-being of others backstage, which led to Punk’s release. Whether or when Punk might make a return to the wrestling ring for another promotion is still uncertain.

While speaking to the Ringer Wrestling Show, Finn Balor was asked by Peter Rosenberg about potentially working with CM Punk in WWE. He wouldn’t reject a match with Punk, because money talks.


“I’d be interested in wrestling a broomstick if someone is going to pay me money. Money talks.” 

CM Punk is now free to do as he wishes. He may have other options out there as well. After all, he is still a draw, but people like Ryback have been quick to point out that Punk isn’t the draw that some like to say he is.

Ringside News exclusively reported that CM Punk wants fans to think that WWE is an option for him, but that’s not the case. He made “desperate attempts” at WWE return a few years ago, and WWE had to tell FOX that he needed to be “controlled” on the WWE Backstage show, where he had a gig as an analyst.

We previously reported that Impact Wrestling is very excited about the idea of making an offer to CM Punk. We will have to see if he does anything there. The NWA might be an intriguing option as well.

Keep checking base with Ringside News for more on this story, and so many more. Odds are, we will see a few more updates to CM Punk’s story by the time everything is said and done.
