The former WWE Champion CM Punk has been in talks for a potential return to the ring, according to Fightful Select
The report noted Punk and a company official have been talking about him wrestling once again. The most likely place for him to go is AEW.
The report stated they haven’t confirmed with Punk or AEW officials about this news, but were told recently that higher-ups in WWE believe Punk is going to All Elite Wrestling.
CM Punk last wrestled At the Royal Rumble, near the end of the match, Kane, who was already eliminated earlier in the match by Punk, eliminated Punk from the outside and proceeded to perform a chokeslam on him through the announce table.
After this Punk stopped making appearances for WWE. By Wednesday, WWE.com stopped advertising Punk for future events. The Wrestling Observer reported that on Monday and prior to Raw he had legitimately walked out after telling Vince McMahon and Triple H that he was "going home.
On November 12, Punk made a surprise appearance on the Fox Sports 1 series WWE Backstage. He subsequently joined the program as a special contributor and analyst. Punk accepted the job because he would be under contract with Fox instead of WWE directly, and hoped it would help him find his way back into the wrestling business.
Regarding an in-ring return, he was not interested but also not opposed to the idea, noting it was "a bridge that is gonna have to be built". However, production of WWE Backstage was halted due to the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequently suspended by Fox in June 2020.
