CM Punk just got through a rocky road with AEW, one that ended with his firing. The Young Bucks were reportedly never asked to sit down for meeting with CM Punk. AEW just assumed that they weren’t interested, because they just received a legal letter over a Being the Elite sketch.

Ryback put out a video recently where he listed reasons why WWE isn’t going to give CM Punk another chance. First off, The Big Guy said that nobody likes CM Punk. He also called Punk a liar.

“This is why CM Punk is not going back to WWE. Number one, nobody likes him, from the boys in the locker room to the office personnel, absolutely despised.

“Number two, he’s a pathological liar. I’ve seen it time and time again, and now we’re starting to hear about it more and more and more and more and finally everybody’s starting to see it.”


“Number three, he’s not the draw that everybody wants to try to say that he is. He never was and he never will be. sure, he can get a spike here or there, but long term, he is incapable of improving ratings.”

“Number four, he’s fragile. He’s just not it. Number five, his ego is out of control. He will not come back and fall in line and be another spoke in the wheel of WWE.”

“Number six, did I mention nobody likes him? Number seven, he’s partially responsible for the downfall of pro wrestling ratings, because casual people look at Phillip Brooks and they just go, ‘that’s not that, that’s not it.'”

“Number eight, he failed horribly at UFC. He wanted to talk the talk and walk the walk. He thinks he’s a 290 pound machine like The Big Guy, Ryback, but the truth is that he’s a skinny-fat little boy trying to play in a man’s world, and it just doesn’t cut it. Casuals look at it, and they know that he’s not the real deal.”

The fact that CM Punk “failed horribly” at UFC is also another big reason why WWE shouldn’t give Punk another chance. He made a point to say that “casuals” will see that and look down on CM Punk. Only time will tell if CM Punk ever responds to The Big Guy.

We will have to see if CM Punk ever makes a return to WWE. It might draw some big headlines, but the real question is how the viewership will turn out in the long haul. Ryback seems to believe that CM Punk just doesn’t have it in him.

CM Punk might wrestle again, but where do you think it will be? Sound off in the comments to let us know what you’re thinking!
