The wrestling world is abuzz with speculation once again as WWE Hall of Famer Booker T has shared his thoughts on a potential return of CM Punk to WWE.

This discussion took place on his Hall of Fame podcast, where Booker T drew parallels with past WWE comebacks, including that of the Ultimate Warrior.

CM Punk: The Possibility of a Return

Booker T, a former five-time world champion, is no stranger to the dynamics of WWE’s relationship with its talent. His insights come with a weight of experience and understanding of the industry’s inner workings.

He pointed out that many talents who have left WWE under various circumstances have eventually made their way back to the company: “I could see CM Punk wanting to find his way back into the WWE. [I mean] we’re talking about it right now. I’m gonna go out on a limb here, I’m not gonna put it past WWE hiring him back.”

This pattern gives rise to the possibility that Punk, despite his controversial departure, could be seen in a WWE ring once more.

History of Reconciliation

The comparison with the Ultimate Warrior is particularly poignant. Known for his tumultuous relationship with WWE, the Ultimate Warrior’s return seemed unlikely at one point.

Yet, WWE welcomed him back, an act that Booker T suggests could set a precedent for CM Punk’s situation. The message here is clear: bridges in WWE can be rebuilt, no matter how burnt they may seem.

CM Punk: Current WWE Stance and Fan Reaction

Despite Booker T’s optimistic outlook, recent reports indicate that WWE currently has no interest in Punk. However, the voice of the fans is hard to ignore, with Punk chants still resonating during WWE shows.

This fan enthusiasm underscores the lasting impact CM Punk has had on the WWE Universe and suggests that a return could be well-received.
