After reports of Edge returning in the WWE at Royal Rumble was surfaced in the recent past, now it seems CM Punk is the next name in the mix. In an interesting conversation on Twitter, the former WWE Champion decided to throw his name, advertently. However, no wrestling media houses have confirmed the same in recent times, though.
Former WWE Divas Champion Paige joked about entering the Royal Rumble with a tweet. She stated that she might enter herself into the men’s Royal Rumble match at #2 spot to greet Brock Lesnar and “take that bish out.” Now CM Punk might be thinking the same thing as he posted a gif while commenting on this post.

The former Straight Edge leader replied with a meme of Spider-Man looking at another Spidey. This may be a hint that he’s considering doing a similar thing to what Paige had suggested. As previously noted, CM Punk returning to WWE TV will be a huge moment for the fans and could work as a huge boost up to the viewership for the company.
But there’s no surety on whether he has signed a deal with the company or this post is just a way of messing around with the fans before Royal Rumble.
I’ll be there on the 21st so you can report on the dumb shit I say.
