CM Punk debuted in AEW when no one thought it was possible, but the dream quickly turned into a nightmare for the company. Punk was fired by AEW earlier this month and since then, rumors of him making his way back to WWE have been rampant. Now it appears Montez Ford would gladly welcome Punk back to 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 Happy Hour, Montez Ford was asked what he would say to WWE management if he was ever asked about bringing CM Punk back to WWE. Ford made it clear that he would gladly welcome Punk back to WWE.

”If they asked my opinion on it, I’m so open to every single aspect, talent in the world, whether they come from all works of life. I feel like everyone has something to bring to the table. Believe it or not, whether people love this individual or not, and this goes for any WWE superstar, if they are generating buzz and generating topics and generating people talking, that’s all good for business. I love to be the person to always welcome someone back with great arms. If he wants to make his way back this way, I guess we can have a battle and see who is the best person from Chicago.”


That said, WWE doesn’t view signing CM Punk to be on the same level as Cody Rhodes. Eric Bischoff also warned CM Punk that the clock is ticking on his in-ring. Only time will tell whether The Second City Saint will make his way back to WWE somewhere down the line.
