CM Punk has returned to WWE programming as a guest analyst on WWE Backstage without any intention of a potential in-ring return just yet.
During a recent interview with Sportkeeda, Rey Mysterio noted that he would love to see Punk back in the ring. It is to be noted that the Second City Saint is currently a FOX employee and is yet to reforge his relationship with WWE.
“I think definitely we would all love to see CM Punk back eventually. Whether he comes back or not is up to him – but I enjoy having him around, even if it’s just with his FOX role. But we all enjoy seeing CM Punk in the ring. I doubt anybody out there would say, ‘Nah, I don’t really want to see him back.’ He has a great personality, great character and he’s great in the ring.”
Punk is among the favorites to win the Men’s Royal Rumble match next month alongside rumors of a potential WrestleMania feud with Seth Rollins.
Meanwhile, Sony Deville is garnering tremendous attention as the first openly lesbian Superstar in WWE. Her aggressive in-ring style is widely appreciated by the WWE Universe and we’re yet to see the young athlete hit her prime in pro wrestling.
While speaking to FOX News, Deville discussed her potential and “longevity” in WWE.
“I think that everyone has a time in life, in general and especially in the WWE. There is a time and a place for everyone’s climb and rise to the top. And I think that you haven’t seen Sonya’s peak yet, obviously. And I’m blessed. I’m one of the youngest females in the locker room – I’m 26. So I have longevity with the company and I’m blessed to be here and to be here for a long time. So I’m excited for the future.”
