CM Punk WWE Return: The Recent Developments

While details remain scant, Dave Meltzer recently indicated on Wrestling Observer Radio that there were indeed discussions between Punk and WWE. However, these talks did not culminate in a positive outcome:

“They [WWE] turned him down. He wanted to go there and the decision was a no. It can always change, and it was brought up to me, that there’s no such thing as ‘no forever’ when it comes to WWE, but it’s no for now.

“That was the decision that was made. It’s Vince’s [McMahon] decision. Vince, Nick Khan, Paul Levesque, and obviously they decided that the negatives outweighed the positives.”
