WWE has a lot of plans going right now, and Survivor Series is set to be a big event on November 25th. The company has 5 matches booked for the card, the same number they had last year, and it doesn’t appear that they will add anything else at this point. That being said, fans will have to wait a bit longer for one storyline to pay off.
In a recent Q&A behind Fightful’s paywall, Sean Sapp addressed the situation, shedding light on an interesting perspective. Apparently, Triple H has made internal comments regarding fans’ tendency to perceive CM Punk teases that do not actually exist.
The Q&A emphasized the strong stance that there is absolutely no possibility of CM Punk returning to AEW. Despite any past speculations, it appears that CM Punk’s relationship with Tony Khan’s company has deteriorated significantly, leaving no room for his potential return.
The Q&A also addressed the idea of CM Punk going to TNA or NJPW. It was then said that there is seemingly an open door for Punk with both companies. A question was also asked about Shinsuke Nakamura’s promos on RAW, because many fans have seen CM Punk teases in the words that Nakamura spoke, which were translated from Japanese. This is when Sapp had to shut that down, because Shinsuke Nakamura isn’t even supposed to be at Survivor Series.
As we write this, Nakamura is not booked or advertised for WWE Survivor Series. Last year’s show was at 5 matches, and this year’s has that right now, too. When we asked Wednesday, we were told that Nakamura wasn’t listed to travel to the show Saturday.
Ringside News exclusively reported that Shinsuke Nakamura breaking out the GTS was not CM Punk tease. After all, that move belonged to KENTA first. There were no intentional CM Punk teases in Nakamura’s promo, despite the fact that fans read into them in a big way.
The WWE roster doesn’t even know who Shinsuke Nakamura is talking about in those promos. There is also rumor going around about Kazuchika Okada being the object of Shinsuke Nakamura’s latest promo run. This could be possible, but Okada’s NJPW contract isn’t up for a while.
