CM Punk’s WWE return was under speculation ever since he was released by All Elite Wrestling, this summer. Most of the wrestling sources opined that WWE won’t take the risk of bringing him back as this might not have any additional impact on TV. But the otherwise has been felt since his comeback at Survivor Series and his being on the red brand might also play a big role in WWE Raw’s next television deal which is yet to be announced.

He made it clear that it was his path that Seth Rollins is now walking on to find success in his career,

“I’m in a position where I feel strange vocalizing it, but Seth is a guy, at least I felt ten years ago that he’s a dude that I don’t think he would have gotten the opportunities he’s gotten if it wasn’t for me, you know. That might hurt some people’s feelings, but facts are facts, they don’t care about your feelings.”
