Sources suggest that CM Punk is reportedly in discussions with WWE about making a comeback to the company. This follows his termination from AEW due to a backstage incident at AEW All In on August 27 in London, England, leading to the termination of his AEW contract “with cause” on September 2. In the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer elaborated on the ongoing discussions between WWE and CM Punk.
“Regarding CM Punk, there is obviously tons of talk regarding him returning.
“There have been rumors that it’s happening, but those in WWE have only said that no deal is completed and those close to Punk have told us that it is his intention to return and the two sides are in talks.
“One would expect if such a deal is made that Survivor Series weekend in Chicago would be the time to do the surprise return.”
