CM Punk reveals if going back to WWE was ever on the table

Last updated

New AEW signee and former WWE Superstar CM Punk appeared on The Angi Taylor Show. Punk answered several questions during the interview, including whether a return to WWE in-ring was ever something that he truly considered.

CM Punk did make somewhat of a return to the WWE as part of the FOX show WWE Backstage, where he acted as a part-time analyst until the show went off the air.

‘I don’t think I considered it” CM Punk revealed on the podcast. “Three years ago, five years ago I don’t think AEW even existed. I don’t think going back to WWE was ever really, logically, on the table.

“And I say ’˜the place I used to work’ (WWE), because I don’t feel it’s specifically necessary to mention them when I don’t have to” Punk continued.

“I am full of anxiety and stress doing press for AEW right now that I’m inadvertently going to say a whole bunch of stupid stuff” the straight edge star concluded.
