CM Punk coming back on WWE TV has definitely run a shockwave through the fanbase that the company has.
After all, this is the man that most of the fans wanted to see making a return to the company for a long time.
Although Punk is yet to be back with the WWE, officially, many believe these appearances on FOX would lead him to a WWE comeback at some point.
Even the former Universal Champion Seth Rollins thinks the same way as he called out CM Punk the day after he made the return on WWE Backstage.
He wanted to be the man to welcome the former Straight Edge leader to in-ring competition.
Appearing on this week’s episode of WWE Backstage, the former WWE Champion addressed the callout by the face of the Monday Night Raw division.
Below is what CM Punk stated about Seth Rollins challenging him to a match,
“Seth needs to stop tweeting and realize that sometimes it’s better to viewed as the fool when you shut your mouth than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.”
The Architect of the WWE was not happy with the words of CM Punk and hence he called him a coward in reply.
CM Punk also talked about the inevitable in-ring return topic at WWE Backstage as asked by co-host Renee Young.
He re-affirmed the fact that he’s a FOX employee and not a WWE member, to date. He has not heard from them in recent times.
But the good thing is that he does not wipe out the ‘never say never’ phrase when it comes to pro-wrestling,
“I haven’t talked to anyone in WWE. It’s nothing that I’m actively pursuing or interested in, but I’m 41 years old and I’ve lived an experienced life where I know not to say no, but that’s gonna be a bridge that is gonna have to be built and it might take as long as building the Great Wall Of China because there’s some hurdles, there’s some hurdles there.”
We will see if WWE made some efforts to bring back CM Punk to the company at some point.
Speculations are pretty strong at this point that he may be performing at Wrestlemania. But confirmations can only be made once an official deal gets signed between the two parties.
