CM Punk Reveals What Would It Take For A Pro Wrestling Return, Update On WWE Backstage Tryout



CM Punk unceremoniously quit WWE in 2014 and his impending return to the ring has been the most discussed topic in the pro wrestling community ever since.

Five years have passed since his departure from the sport, and with the advent of AEW, Punk has been more vocal about his pro wrestling return, stating that he’s open to receiving a call from WWE.

During a recent interview with Barstool Sports’ My Mom’s Basement, the longest-reigning WWE Champion of The Modern Era claimed to have always been open to returning to the ring.

“Absolutely. For five years I’ve always been asked that question. No matter what I say, it gets reduced to clickbait and it gets warped. I’ve gone through some many iterations of people saying, ‘Oh, Punk hates wrestling.’ None of that was ever the case. I think I’ve always been open to it. My attitude has always been that I don’t see it happening. I think I’ve talked about it more recently, but my attitude hasn’t changed.”

Punk had closed the door on pro wrestling last year, but his recent auditioning for WWE Backstage fueled rumors about his much-anticipated return to Vince McMahon‘s company.

“People always ask what would it take to go back, and I say it would take a big bag. So people use their imaginations.”

COO of WWE, Paul “Triple H” Levesque recently claimed that Vince is “open for business,” and Punk’s return is a matter of “never say never” if that’s what’s best for business.

A few weeks ago, Punk was reported to have auditioned for WWE Backstage on FS1 and fans have been expecting to see the ex-Superstar join the sets as the co-host of the new talk show.

A new report from Fightful Select suggests that although Punk had impressed the Backstage team, FOX has “moved on.” The higher-ups at FOX are yet to make a final decision though.

Punk’s tryout went well and he impressed the Backstage team, but it was left in the hands of higher ups at Fox that seemed like they’d “moved on” as recently as this week. Nothing is concrete in that regard, though.
