WWE President Nick Khan Weighs In on CM Punk

During a recent conversation with ESPN’s Marc Raimondi, which primarily revolved around the WWE-UFC merger, the topic inevitably shifted to Punk.

When asked about WWE’s interest in bringing back CM Punk, WWE President Nick Khan responded with a measured and respectful tone.

He stated, “Listen, we only have respect for Phil. We appreciate his run here. We appreciate what he did and tried to do with the UFC. Not many people can actually get in there and do what he did. So, when we have respect for Phil, we wish him nothing but the best.”

This statement, while full of admiration for Punk (real name Phil Brooks), neither confirms nor denies WWE’s interest in re-signing him. It leaves the door open for interpretation, and fans are left to read between the lines.
